Containing great old photographs by:
Brett Weston (originally Theodore Brett Weston; December 16, 1911, Los Angeles–January 22, 1993, Hawaii) was an American photographer. Van Deren Coke described Brett Weston as the “child genius of American photography.” He was the second of the four sons of photographer Edward Weston and Flora Chandler.
Todd Webb (September 5, 1905 – April 15, 2000) was an American photographer notable for documenting everyday life and architecture in cities such as New York, Paris as well as from the American west. His photography has been compared with Harry Callahan, Berenice Abbott, Walker Evans, and the French photographer Eugène Atget. He traveled extensively during his long life and had important friendships with artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Ansel Adams and Harry Callahan. His life was like his photos in the sense of being seemingly simple, straightforward, but revealing complexity and depth upon a closer examination. Capturing history, his pictures often transcend the boundary between photography and artistic expression.
Enjoy the funk,

Life and fauna of the Southeast coast of the U.S. Filmed in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina & North Carolina.
After the April Boston Marathon tragedy, we left for a long, slow drive all the way down to Florida to collect our thoughts, heal and rebuild our strength. I still think that animals are nobler than most men…
Enjoy the slow pace,

This production was developed with 1950’s and 60’s exceptional photographs of NYC and their people by Samuel Gottscho and Vivian Maier. I also used footage from Archive.org ; “NY Staten Island Ferry” from the Prelinger archives.
Music is Afro Blue by Triplexity (Nikila, SaReGaMa and Hamelin Bérengnier) @ HTTP://www.Jamendo.com Remix by Leo Bar
(You may notice artifacts and pixellation in some photos or video sequences, these were caused by enlarging small formats into HD format)
All other effects are my fault and I take credit for them 🙂
Enjoy the show,

Coastal scenes from Northern Florida through Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina April 2013.
The video was compiled from a trip taken in late April 2013, where we started in northern Florida, and worked our way up the coast via Georgia, South and North Carolinas. We spent a lot of time with locals and visiting unique places out away from the tourists’ traps.
In constructing this video with soft framed vignette and lazy pace, I was trying to recreate the mood and state of mind we carried throughout this adventure. The Southern hospitality was evident everywhere and the rhythm of the day slowed down to a very smooth beat. Almost like molasses dripping down our pancakes in the morning… Still can taste the shrimp and grits in my mind!
Enjoy the show,

New York Dream from PIX IN MOTION by Leo Bar on Vimeo.
A whimsical look at NYC from some choice angles and locations. The theme revolves around dreams by park “sleepers” and their fantasies.
Special thanks to Ed Yourdon at http://www.flickr.com/photos/yourdon/ for some unusual photographs of the city and its people. Some time lapses are from stock footage. Others are pseudo time lapses, some are real 🙂
Enjoy the show,
