Lauri Kranz Series by Brian W Ferry

It’s rather grey in our part of England today, so I’ve been on the hunt for a little sun rich greenery to remind me of the warmer days to come. I’m definitely not an embracer of winter so I’m a fan of letting my imagination wander, pretending that the cold weather isn’t here. It looks glorious in Los Angles where Brian Ferry recently captured this photo series of Lauri Kranz, being the perfect distraction from the good old English weather …

Collection of Photography by Luisa Brimble

As winter takes over with the cold nights and the shortened days I often turn my attention to photography of the nature we see here today from Luisa Brimble, which I would describe as really hearty and homely. Another photographer that springs to mind in this respect is Charlotte Bland who has brought us this wholesome style of imagery previously, and I have to say I’m a real sucker for this type of project from October …

Tadao Ando Photographed by Donata Wenders

I’ve not talked about a highly acclaimed designer in a while so I thought I’d buck the trend today and bring you something slightly different. As you can imagine I regularly go through phases of inspiration, just like everyone else, so when I came across this brilliant photography matched with a superb architect I had to bring it across to showcase to you all. Although I’ve singled out one specific …

Photo Series from In The Make

We’re are naturally always on the hunt for makers, and In The Make have them stockpiled, so once again I’ve returned to their door this morning to raid a little photography. Last time around we highlighted their studio visit to sculptor Mari Andrew, which if you didn’t catch a glimpse of was like a cave of all things organic and eye pleasing, I’d recommend checking back if I was you. Today I thought I’d focus more on a mixture of individual …

Plant Imagery by Qusamura

Plant pictures and imagery featuring greenery puts me in quite a trance, lately I’ve been excited by the mixture of vessels combined with living things such as a cactus or a bonsai. I actually own a bonsai myself and it takes center stage on a windowsill in my house, nurturing it is a very rewarding experience when you watch it develop and grow slowly over time. Although I have a normal bonsai pot it would be great to get something like …

Adam Currie Photographs the Barbican

One of the things I love about what we do here is the connections we make, and the diversity that this presents. Some days we strive to preserve the legacy that an individual has left behind, others feature creatives in their prime, and today we highlight the handiwork of someone just starting out and experimenting with a style that they can call their own. Soon to be architect and avid film photographer Adam Currie enters into our ever …

Olga Bennet Photographs Kim Mckechnie’s Studio

Another great week begins and with it I thought we’d make a return trip to view the progressive portfolio of Australian photographer Olga Bennet. As many will hopefully know Olga is someone who’s work we have admired here in the past and it’s been brilliant to watch her talents flourish and mature over time. I thought today we’d highlight one shoot she put together for her recent series …

Travel Photography by Eric Valli

What fascinates me about the world we inhabit today is an alternative way of living, a way of life that isn’t considered by the majority as the norm. We can visit distant areas of the world and not feel like we have left our city, the same shops, restaurants, and brands surround us, culturally you could say we are slowly becoming one. So when I stumble upon the portfolio of a photographer like Eric Valli who has made it his life’s work to …

Studio Imagery from Siemon & Salazar

I don’t mean to come across as somebody who’s always complaining, or a snob for that matter, but I often find myself disappointed when searching the shelves of mainstream shops. I appreciate the concept of appealing to a larger market but in doing so it feels like we are losing touch with objects that have been made to last, made with a real love and attention to detail. I like to be able to see the craftsmanship and hard graft within the object …

Imagery from Converted into Houses by Charles Fracchia and Jeremiah O. Bragstad

I’m currently undertaking a bit of decorating and furnishing at home, so in recent days I’ve been taking a browse around to see what I can conjure up in terms of inspiration and ideas to give the house an air of individualism. I found myself revisiting the comprehensive curation of a bohemian style that is Charles Fracchias and Jeremiah O. Bragstad’s book “Converted …

Architectural Photography by Richard Anderson

I’ve been scouring around the web for a little architecture today, with Andrew Geller from my last post sitting in the back of my mind. I enjoyed putting this piece together so much that I wanted to ensure I found something today that felt like it would present equal measure of ingenuity and design consideration whilst being original, I knew it was going to be a difficult act to follow. I’ve …
