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 …

Mixed Architectural Imagery by Artechnic

I always have mixed feelings towards architecture, especially when I put together an article here on the site. It’s hard to come across works that really entice me and usually the ones that do have already been written about. Another problem is the ‘new modern’ trend that seems to be spreading across the richer parts of the world, particularly in the cities that are expanding such as Shanghai and Tokyo. I like it when architects build humble …

Brooklyn Makers by Jennifer Causey

I thought it was about time we returned to the talented Jennifer Causey now as a means of promotion for the fantastic little book she’s been curating in Brooklyn which celebrates the districts creativity and independent community. For a while now I’ve been watching from afar as she’s added a taster of each individuals work she’s visited and we’ve even featured a few here ourselves in our daily content. What’s great about the book is …

Short Film on Photographer Harry Taylor

Whenever possible I try to bring across a short film to highlight an individuals work because I think you really get an overall sense of what both they and their project are all about. Just being able to hear in their voice and visualise the intricate processes involved goes a long way in deciphering those creating a completely diffrent path from the norm. I like to think we celebrate this thinking outside of the box here, and todays addition to our archive …

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 …

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 …

Marion Berrin photographs Le Corbusier’s La Radieuse

Today I’ve been around the houses in search for content, as my first preference is always to try and find a short film as I feel that these best convey a project, especially if they involve some kind of interview with the creative minds behind each. A handful of topics however, like architecture for example, rarely get regular documentation via a film, so I’ve turned my attention to photography …

Views of the Jean Prouvé Exhibition at Jousse Entreprise

Our good friends at WO AND WÉ, a site that I’ve admired for quite a while now, put me onto this Jean Prouvé exhibiton that started last month at Jousse Entreprise, a gallery in Paris that showcases a range of well-known designers like Le Corbusier, Serge Mouille, and Alexandre Noll. Most of which we’ve covered here in the past. I’m not one for copying over content and we and …

Iconic Images Explores Namibia

Admittedly this is somewhat of a curve ball, but I like to think we pride ourselves on keeping a diverse mix of content to keep you all inspired. So with this in mind we’re leaning quite a lot towards photography with this film following the company of Denis Glennon, who runs a series of safari tours for passionate wildlife photographers, deemed by many as one of the best trips in the world. This film highlights what you can expect from his …

Leslie Williamson Photographs Constantin Brancusi’s Atelier

I better insert a spoiler alert before we begin today as I’ve once again raided the blog of photographer Leslie Williamson as she puts together the second edition of her handcrafted modern book. Now I really hope I’m not revealing too much that is to reach the final publication, I’m assuming these are really great outakes that Leslie has decided to tease us all with online. With every new …

Ceramics by Fumihiro Toda

Coming across great ceramics and pottery has been quite an easy task for me lately, it doesn’t take long to find an artist I like whilst browsing a Japanese shop or website, this obviously gets me researching on the specific individual. Unfortunately when I arrive at their portfolio page they’re usually lacking on the image front, not in terms of substance but in terms of photo size so it’s hard to bring across, but there can be the rare case …
