New Feature with Photographer Hideaki Hamada

New Feature with Photographer Hideaki Hamada

It’s a great pleasure to bring you this new feature with Japanese photographer Hideaki Hamada. Hideaki is a creative that I’ve wanted to interview for a while, it’s only now that I’ve been able to get some of the translation issues smoothed out. Although Hideaki knows English, for the in-depth answers it became apparent that he would be better off answering in Japanese and having someone …

Essential Forms by Pedro de Passos

Essential Forms by Pedro de Passos

One thing I always find remarkable is that many of the individuals we pick-up on seem to have very similar influences. Even in unusual ways, whether it be their outlook on life, cultural references, or the importance of certain creatives throughout their journey. It’s almost as if all these dots connect in strange ways, all channeling towards a similar aesthetic. I’m sure designers pick up on this quite often, there’s so much content on the web …

Ainu, Portrait of the Wind by Photographer Makiko Ui

Many of these different influences bounce around in my head, trying to make sense of them all is full-time work in itself. Usually once I’ve cleansed my mind and let these thoughts settle down, let nature take it’s course, obvious patterns emerge and little details protrude which I can use on this path of self-discovery. As the quote says, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward you can only connect …

Autumn is approaching rapidly here in the US. Cooler weather, shorter days, and changing flora are in store. This annual downshift has a direct effect on my perspective, rekindling passions for the smells, sounds, and sights of the harvest season. So while browsing through some photography, an artist that captures the intensity of the natural world synced with my renewed captivations. Camille Seaman studied photo …

Film Photography by I.E.

Although Flickr has had its fair share of criticism over the years, I’m impressed by their tunnel vision in regard to the photographic industry. Much like Vimeo, who’ve been able to capture filmmakers all over the world, Flickr has done the same with photographers. Often something you’ll find with these networks when they’ve been bought out by other large companies, or when they try to conquer various sectors all at once, they end up …

It’s great connecting with like-minded individuals, other creatives that have exactly the same aesthetic as what we talk about here on the site and work to a similar style. One such person, who I got talking to this week, was Trevor Triano, a photographer based in Aspen but usually spends a lot of his time in New York. His works are both inspiring and varied, covering a lot of areas in the photography field. This is something that’s been …

Just lately I’ve had the urge to pick up my old Pentax film camera, when the summer months arrive it seems to be the perfect time to use it. The camera really is a brilliant piece of equipment and I’ve invested quite a lot of money in making sure the light seals were properly fitted and not worn, and everything was clean mechanically inside. It pays to make sure the older equipment is running smoothly, as the benefits can be extremely …

High-rise by Photographer Peter Bobby

High-rise by Photographer Peter Bobby

Although I have more of an interest in residential architecture than commercial or business orientated builds, I have to say this recent project by photographer Peter Bobby certainly caught my attention. I guess houses excite me because you can play with the idea of function in the home, you can also be tailored towards the space and the user. With a commercial build you’re often catering for a wide variety of individuals and it can’t …

Metsa Spring Summer 2013 Collection

Metsa Spring Summer 2013 Collection

It’s been a long time since I’ve mentioned any clothing here on the site, but I feel like this is a unique collection that’s very much in tune with our own ethos. Metsa isn’t a new project by any means, we put together an interview with owner Markus Uran back in 2011 that’s definitely worth checking out if you’ve got a spare few minutes. I’ve kept in touch with Markus over the years and I’ve always been interested in their ideology, also …

Architectural Photography by Ippei Shinzawa

Architectural Photography by Ippei Shinzawa

When it comes to architecture most just snoop around design firms websites, checking out the houses and admiring the images in different portfolios. But I seem to find myself looking more and more at the credits section where they associate each photographer with a specific house or collection of photographs, it gives me a chance to search up this creative and see what else they have on offer. Often the photographers selection …
