Adam Currie Photographs the Barbican

Adam Currie Photographs the Barbican

One of the things I love about what we do here is the connections we make, and the diversity that this presents. Some days we strive to preserve the legacy that an individual has left behind, others feature creatives in their prime, and today we highlight the handiwork of someone just starting out and experimenting with a style that they can call their own. Soon to be architect and avid film photographer Adam Currie enters into our ever …

Another great week begins and with it I thought we’d make a return trip to view the progressive portfolio of Australian photographer Olga Bennet. As many will hopefully know Olga is someone who’s work we have admired here in the past and it’s been brilliant to watch her talents flourish and mature over time. I thought today we’d highlight one shoot she put together for her recent series …

I appreciate the concept of appealing to a larger market but in doing so it feels like we are losing touch with objects that have been made to last, made with a real love and attention to detail.

Imagery from Converted into Houses by Charles Fracchia and Jeremiah O. Bragstad

I’m currently undertaking a bit of decorating and furnishing at home, so in recent days I’ve been taking a browse around to see what I can conjure up in terms of inspiration and ideas to give the house an air of individualism. I found myself revisiting the comprehensive curation of a bohemian style that is Charles Fracchias and Jeremiah O. Bragstad’s book “Converted …
