Living Quarters Photographed by Mieke Verbijlen

After a little gap between any photography related articles, although every post here does feature an exciting array of imagery, I thought it was about time I highlighted an individual that’s been particularly inspiring for a little while. I’ve had the portfolio bookmarked in my reader and I’m checking back regularly to see if their has been any new series added to the ever growing list on her …

The Tables of Carlo Scarpa

The Tables of Carlo Scarpa

Today I thought I’d bring across some stark looking design for all of you to admire. This furniture by Carlo Scarpa is sure to hold well against the cold weather that we’re experiencing here in the UK, and it was the perfect remedy for me over the weekend. I decided to sit through a short film early Saturday morning that had been produced by SIMON last month, as it hadn’t got many views I wasn’t expecting anything spectacular but I was instant …

Introduction to Sculptor Michael Coffey by Bespoke Global

This was a real treat of a find today, and I was quite lucky to stumble across it in all honesty. I was taking my usual travels to come across something unique/different that I could showcase and I had remembered I was going to research sculptor Michael Coffey but never got around to it after seeing a selection of work on the Wright auction site. Once I had dug around a little I …

Place of Hope, The Kasama Community and the Great Ordeal

Place of Hope, The Kasama Community and the Great Ordeal

When me and Daniel decide to showcase videos on the blog we’re often wary of the length, as we know many people can get distracted when watching long pieces. Today I’m going to throw this rule out of the window as I point you towards a piece titled ‘Place of Hope, The Kasama Community and the Great Ordeal’, directed by Henry Mochida and Mike Douglass. It’s a 26 minute film and was made …
