2011 Rapha NW Gentlemen’s Race

Another exceptional film from Rapha and their crew documenting the 2011 Rapha NW Gentlemen’s Race in Oregon. This course has a distance of 130 miles with various technical terrain on an uphill climb, 10,000 ft of climbing to be exact. Whenever these guys and girls release a film it’s always exciting, I don’t think there’s ever been a time where a series has been consistently produced in such a quality manner. I’m …

Vermont by Jennifer Causey

Another lovely set of photography from Brooklyn based photographer Jennifer Causey. It’s not the first time that we’ve highlighted her works, and this morning I couldn’t help but showcase these images that I found on her blog titled Simply Photo. I’ve been a subscriber for months and I think her style is by far one of my favourites, up there with Leslie Williamson, Brian Ferry and Jennilee Marigomen. Titled “Vermont on …

Alvar Aalto: In the Master’s Home

You may have seen me mention Alvar Aalto before, whether it be here or on my personal website, and over the weekend Nowness created this fantastic feature showcasing photography of the interior and exterior of the Alvar Aalto house in Helsinki, Finland. Alvar was a Finnish architect and designer, and was probably the most important Finnish architect of the 20th century. Not only did he design buildings, he …

This Must Be The Place, John Coffer

A new series of short films by Ben Wu and David Usui of Lost & Found Films exploring the idea of home, what makes them, how they represent us, and why we need them. They began with Byun, a multi-media artist based in Brooklyn, NY. But I specifically picked out this one with John Coffer, an individual who left his normal day job to live off his own land in a simple and humble way. Students can pay to visit his workshops just …

Lights by Mark Borthwick

Mark Borthwick is said to be one of the most influential alternative fashion photographers of our time and was a defining photographer of the 90’s. He’s helped magazines such as Purple, Self Service and AnOther bridge the gap between art and fashion, something that we see a lot of in the market today. This is a selection of his photography that really inspired me from a series titled Lights. There’s a beautiful array …

Set of Photography by Parker Fitzgerald

So today I’m returning to the work of Parker Fitzgerald and his inspiring imagery, and if I’m being completely honest it was only going to be a matter of time before we revisited such a talented photographer. There is something about Parker’s work that really does just strike a chord with me, perhaps it’s his eye for detail or wonderfully candid approach but every time I see …

The People Who Feed Us, Beekeeper Mary Woltz

A beautiful set of photography by Karon Wise, a New York based photographer who is highly acclaimed for her wedding photography. She was even voted as one of the top ten wedding photographers in the world, and rightly so looking at these cracking photos taken for The People Who Feed Us. Mary Woltz is the subject and we get a look at her bees, or ‘the girls’ as she likes to call them. Mary’s a beekeeper from …

More Photographic Works by Thom Fougere

Mr D Benning posted up some photography by Winnipeg designer Thom Fougere back in December, a photographer I’ve since been keeping my eye on. I’m a regular follower of his blog which keeps me up to date on new projects and work that’s evolving, and his flickr is a great addition to his portfolio also. It shows the day to day ongoings and also captures his great eye for design and minimalism. For example here you can see some …

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 …

Little Scraps of Paper Series by Tomas Leach

This is a great little series headed by director Tomas Leach with the help of Nicolas Cambier and Daniel Diego Lincoln titled “Little Scraps of Paper”. It’s a collection of short documentary films about how creative people develop ideas and thoughts and what they keep them in. This one below featuring product designer Oscar Narud really caught my attention mainly because of the setting, the furniture, and also the closeups. But there are plenty more …

Photographic Works by Agnes Thor

Agnes Thor is a photographer who lives and works in Sweden but graduated from the UK’s Blackpool and The Fylde College with a BA in photography. I’ve seen her work crop up a lot and I really wanted to present some photography to you all that I don’t think has already been shown. I found I preferred some of the more simplistic photographs where as other sites had showcased her imagery featuring humans, so these are totally opposite and show off a …
