Photography by Alana Paterson

Photography by Alana Paterson

Photography hasn’t featured here on the site in a long time, generally I don’t come across many portfolios that entice me (I’m quite picky!). Either that or they’ve been shown here on the blog before. I guess that becomes a problem in itself, I’m regularly checking back with individuals that I already know but aren’t discovering many others. So I was glad to kick this trend and bump in to the works of Alana Paterson, someone who I have …

Inspiring Lifestyle Photography by Cultivated Days

Inspiring Lifestyle Photography by Cultivated Days

I’ve been a bit cheeky today by pinching some inspiring imagery from another blog, the photography was that good I had to showcase it. The images come from a website titled ‘Cultivated Days’ that’s founded and edited by Prairie Stuart-Wolff. Interestingly Prairie, with the help of designer Tam Ngo, has been releasing online editions of the Cultivated Days magazine through the website …

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 …

Abstract Architectural Details by Photographer Yusheng Liao

Abstract Architectural Details by Photographer Yusheng Liao

Wow, this has been an extremely hard post to construct. I’ve been scouring through photographer Yusheng Liao’s website titled ‘Figure and Find’ and I had to whittle it down to a summary of photographs which was near on impossible. Over the years he’s amassed a substantial amount of photographs in his portfolio, mainly architectural and travel related. Straight away I was drawn to …

Shino Takeda Studio Visit by Inventory Magazine

Shino Takeda Studio Visit by Inventory Magazine

The good folks at Inventory Magazine recently put together this short feature on Shino Takeda, a creative we’ve discussed here before on the blog. I was instantly drawn to the photography and I couldn’t pass up the chance to share it all with you, it’s definitely worthy of your time today and is sure to inspire. I also learnt a few things about Shino that I didn’t know previously, I knew of her …

Living Quarters Photographed by Mieke Verbijlen

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 …

Photographs of Maiko Okuno’s Lacquerware Exhibition

Photographs of Maiko Okuno’s Lacquerware Exhibition

I’m not usually one to split up images like this, I prefer to keep them all landscape or at least have a mixture of the two sizes. But since it’s Friday I thought I’d let myself off, also these are very tasty indeed so I knew even though they weren’t that big you would still appreciate them. Sometimes I think I need to document these so people in the future can look back and see all this fantastic work …

Pottery by Yoko Ozawa Photographed by Olga Bennett

Pottery by Yoko Ozawa Photographed by Olga Bennett

I was awoken with a surprise email the other morning, when Yoko Ozawa sent over a fantastic array of photographs taken by the ever so talented Olga Bennett. Olga’s a bit of a regular here on the blog and has been heavily featured in the past, to say we’re admirers is an understatement. Olga’s a freelance photographer based in Melbourne and I’ve known about this collaboration with Australian …

Recent Photography by Cody Cobb

Recent Photography by Cody Cobb

Since it’s the start of a new year I thought I’d bring through a familiar face, someone who we’ve visited many times before, not only in the last year but in several years previously. In fact Cody Cobb, the photographer in question, is perhaps my most revisited individual that I’ve shared on the blog. Evidently I have a real soft spot for his work which consists of an investigative and refreshing approach to travel photography, he seeks to find …

Masters Atelier Photographed by Natsumi Akatsuka

Masters Atelier Photographed by Natsumi Akatsuka

I was on the hunt for a new set of photography this morning when I came across a small series on Natsumi Akatsuka’s photo journal. I’ve been a subscriber to Natsumi’s website for a fair few years now and it’s great to see her return to Japan and visit different places, in a lot of ways I’m very envious. This particular series is titled Mashiko, named after the town where she’s currently stay …
