Russell was born on the 7th of Feb 1912 and died 29th of June 1981. In 1929 Drysdale developed a detached retina in his left eye, a condition which plagued him for the rest of his life and left him almost fully blind in that eye. He left school and in the following year spent six months working with his uncle. Drysdale’s meeting with the artist George Bell represented a major turning point in his life. In his late forties Bell had rejected academical for modernism. Later in 1932, Drysdale attended the newly opened Shore-Bell School at the corner of Queen and Burke Streets in Melbourne for about two months.

I dont like this photo because the man in the picture is smoking.

Slinkachu was born in 1979. Slinkachu gets his inspiration from people-watching and reading the news. Slinkachu is a self tought photographer that stated professional photography in 2006, on a project called the little people project.

In his photos he makes the figurines look like they are are kicking, hitting and sitting on small objects like, drink bottles, chess pieces, skittles, cigarettes, Lego pieces and other small objects. below there is a picture of one of his photos. I chose this photo because I liked the contrast in scale between the figurines and the grasshoppers.
