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 …

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 …

Interior Spaces by Kouichi Kimura Architects

I’m often stumped when it comes to architectural websites, usually the photography’s not quite there in terms of size or quality, which means I can’t showcase it on the blog (my standards are pretty high). Last week I decided to start a Pinterest of our own, follow us here if you’re on Pinterest yourself, with my sole intention being to create a mood-board type set-up for the website. This would give me an ideal place to group photos from …

Green Tea Inspiration at Hibiki-an

It’s great finding new inspiration in all different fields, the blog is the perfect place for us to get our thoughts out there and put our own twist on certain subjects, ones that don’t get much light on other websites. I guess in this life everything is interconnected and our daily lives, or things we choose to make a part of our lives, influence our perception and make us become more aware of our surroundings and influences. Personally, I gain …

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” …

Short Film on Architect Robert Madison

I stumbled across the story of gentleman and architect Robert Madison a little while ago now and I’ve been waiting for a rainy day to bring it into our archive for us all to consume and learn from. Today is that day so I guess I shall begin by explaining that Robert is an influential Mentor, Patron of Arts and Pioneering Architect who was presented with the Cleveland Arts Prize as a Special Citation for Distinguished Service …

Plant Photography by Sanna Kannisto

Finish photographer Sanna Kannisto, who lives and works in Helsinki, really caught my eye this morning with her green photography. Mixing nature with culture, Sanna explores these two subjects in an artistic way, studying the methods, theories and concepts through which we approach nature in art and in science. I was obviously attracted to this work through the compositions and tones, also the mix of …

Photographic Stills by William Hereford

Our friends at Kinfolk magazine remind us of photographer and director William Hereford. I remember watching a short video of his a year ago titled “Cooking Dinner” that came in the form of volume 1. I recall a lot of people leaving comments asking him to do more but I never saw anything surface, which is very much a shame. Then all of sudden he’s been bobbing around again working for various food publications, this photography above …
