Photography by Isao Hashinoki

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.

Often the photographers selection …

Lost Ceremony – Ghosts in the Workshop by Adam Marelli

Lost Ceremony – Ghosts in the Workshop by Adam Marelli

I haven’t covered an exhibition in a while and I thought this specific project perfectly summed up the inspirations here on the site, actually it’s almost uncanny the parallels between the two. The project as a whole focuses on Japanese Master Craftsmen as an endangered species, and has been part of photographer Adam Marelli’s multi year study on the uncertain future of ancient traditions. As …

Louis Kahn Visual Archive by Naquib Hossain

Louis Kahn Visual Archive by Naquib Hossain

Wow, some incredible captures of buildings designed by the great architect Louis Kahn, photographed by Naquib Hossain. In fact Naquib has a small website dedicated to Louis Kahn which he has coined a “Visual Archive”, quite fitting for this particular series. If you’ve not seen it before I’d recommend having a browse here, it’s basically a homage to Louis Kahn and his works through a collection of photographs. Interestingly enough …
