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

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 …

Places for Life by Fulvio Osenigo & Alessandra Chemollo

When photography and architecture mix you often get fantastic results, usually it’s these functional forms conveyed in an artistic way that really speak volumes. This series of photographs that I picked out today by Fulvio Osenigo & Alessandra Chemollo really do capture the essence of movement in architectural spaces, and not just contemporary builds but also those with …

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 …

Simple Things by Isabelle Bertolini

It seems to me that all creatives go through that photographic stage, where you’re documenting everything that happens through a lens. Often I put down the camera in times of overload or when I need space to think, but there’s always something that pulls me back towards the medium. You’ll often find me glued to my digital camera, as I take photographs for the shop regularly, but it’s really nice to dust off one of my many 35mm camera …

Photography by Camille Seaman

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 …

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 …

Photography by Trevor Triano

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 …

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 …

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 …

Photographic Artist Jan Hardisty

Although I’m not necessarily an ‘art’ buff, I still find myself getting inspired by a multitude of artists both from the past and present. A link between those that do inspire me is an element of abstraction, such as Picasso or Salvador Dali, maybe even Alexander Calder to throw a sculptural artist in the mix. So when I came across photographic artist Jan Hardisty this week I felt like it was definitely worthy of a post and further …
