Parker Fitzgerald for Kinfolk

Regular followers of our blog will know we have a lot of admiration for photographer Parker Fitzgerald and fine dining magazine Kinfolk, given the amount of times we’ve covered both of these entities here in the past. Recently Kinfolk got together for one of their evening meals and invited Parker to come and document the occasion, which thankfully he accepted as we see above and below in this tremendous series of photographs that he’s capt …

L.A. Cabin Living by Brian W Ferry

I’ve been super impressed with the work of photographer Brian W Ferry as of late, he’s somebody we’ve followed closely in the past and even interviewed before, so it’s always refreshing to return to his portfolio and see how things are developing for him. This particular series that I’m showcasing today was shared on his blog “The Blue Hour” which is a great resource for for inspiration, it often acts as a photo diary for the …

Collection of works from María Aparicio Puentes

Time for a little visual arts now as we visit the work of Chilean creative Maria Aparico Puentes and her mixed media imagery. By combining film photography with textiles Maria curates a playful yet eye pleasing series that emphasises the geometry found in these wonderfully taken black and white stills. I was amazed to learn that she actually hand stitches these alternations to the …

Collection of Works from Sculptor Hirotoshi Ito

The combination of a sublime skill set and a playful imagination is one that has won so many of us previously by the likes of Dali, Warhol and in more recent times Damien Hirst. The art of surrealism reminds us all that the impossible is plausible which is why this playful set of sculptures from Japanese artist Hirotoshi Ito brought such a smile to my face earlier when I discovered his work. Just by taking such a core material as stone and …

Short Film from Just So

In terms of commercial reach Adidas are of course one of the largest in the world, so it’s natural for us as independents to stray away from the work that they do. That’s not being critical, just being honest. Today however at risk of sounding like a hypocrite I wanted to support a project they’re undertaking through London based agency Just So as they go on a quest to uncover raw creative talent. This perhaps sounds a little tacky on the surface but …

True to form their archive has been replenished with lots of mind-blowing shots, they seem to have ventured out geographically too which is fantastic to see, collaborating with so many great creatives in the process. Mr Brian W Ferry mentioned back in …

Set of Imagery from Industry of One

I’ve really enjoyed the Industry of One webpage over recent months so as a nod of appreciation to the work that Adam Patrick and Rachel Brown undertake I thought I’d bring across a small set of photography which features a few familiar faces. Although their initial context was to accompany the dedicated interview of these individuals, I felt these worked really well together in a set especially from a men’s style point of view. A few of you may …

Set of Imagery from Renilde Depeuter

I felt I was well overdue a return to a set of photography so I’ve pieced together this selection from Renilde Depeuter who many of you may remember for her stunning mobiles we covered on the blog back in February. Initially I was just browsing around enjoying Renilde’s photostream over on Flickr and it took me a few minutes to twig that I’d seen her work previously. Today I thought we should focus more on her interior design skill …

Selection of Work from Akio Kamiya Architect & Associates

Browsing over the portfolio of the Akio Kamiya studio earlier today I was really blown away by the way they’ve transformed a traditional Japanese aesthetic to incorporate modern elements. These projects I’ve brought across today really optimise why I get so inspired by architecture, the combination of structure, texture, lighting and unity within each builds environment is simply breath …

Skimming through his page I was really impress …

The Art of Making by Heath Ceramics

I always seem to be landing on the Heath Ceramics webpage so why it’s taken me this long to bring across an article from them is a little beyond me. There’s no time like the present to resurrect this however which is why I’ve raided their “Art of Making” section as a little nod to the work that they’ve been doing since 1948 would you believe. Not only do Heath produce some mind-blowing pottery and ceramics they’re really open to shar …
