Nono by Ana Armendariz

One thing I love about photography is the power that it has to tell a story. I find myself constantly inspired by series that not only offer up good singular photos which can stand alone and have significant importance, but also importantly offer meaning as a set. Personally I think this can set apart one photographer from another, take Ana Armendariz for example from Buenos Aires who has created this fantastic series titled “Nono” …

Over the Christmas period I came across the work of Richard Serra through an insightful book that follows his achievements over the past forty years.

Various Ceramics from Tokino Kumo Store

Since I brought across the Rosenfield Collection last week I’ve been on the browse for some more ceramics, until this morning I hadn’t been able to match that same level of quality and originality as previous selections. I found the answer to my woes in Japan within a wonderful little webstore called Tokino Kumo which was harbouring these stunning pieces of handmade mastery. I don’t think it’s easy to come across items …

Mixed Imagery by Kimberly Wu

My favourite sort of photography doesn’t necessarily have to be about composition or clarity but a lot of the time it’s about the subject in the photograph and the natural lighting. I prefer it when the person taking the picture is inspired by what they’re taking and is very careful about the aesthetics, Kimberly Wu definitely fits this description. She runs two fantastic websites, one more of a blog format and the other showcasing her …

Keeping things local this morning, we are visiting the work of London based creative Laura Carlin who doubles as both an illustrator and budding ceramic artist.
