From Another Magazine:

Russian auteur Andrei Tarkovsky is often cited as the greatest cinematic artist of all time… One of his heroes, Ingmar Bergman, stated, “Tarkovsky for me is the greatest, the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream.”

I think he had a very special eye for light. Here are some recently discovered polaroids of his taken in Russia and Italy. More images here.

Tiff and I had a fun afternoon shooting some pics in the park with friend and photographer Kurt Davies. Forgive some of our more serious faces.

Luke Byrne is a photographer friend with a beautiful retro aesthetic. His washed out landscapes are incredibly romantic. I want to go where he is.

Although Karl Blossfeldt’s botanical photogravures are his most famous work, he was also a well respected sculptor and professor of art. His interest in and eye for form and texture are evident in these images, which are striking in both the complexity of the subject and the simplicity of his photographic style. He used a homemade camera and had his work published in 1929 in his book Urformen der Kunst (Archetypes of Art).

Whitechapel Gallery in London is currently exhibiting a selection of his images until June 14, 2013.

IS./WET is a new collaboration between photographer Ted O’Donnell and artist Vicki Lee. This it the first time the couple have worked together.

IS./WETIS./WETTheir photographs of brilliant flowers dripping in hyper colour paint are intriguing but it’s the stop motion film directed and edited by Patrick de Teliga which I really like.


If you’re free tonight pop down to Sun Studios from 6pm to check out the exhibition.


I visited Morocco a few years back. We caught the ferry from Tarifa across the Strait of Gilbrator to Tangiers. The ocean is incredibly luminescent and the sun so strong. We only spent a day in Tangiers before heading to Essaouira, but I remember winding, steep, dusty streets looking out onto that incredible view of the Mediterranean. It’s a rough, mysterious, and beautiful town filled with creative expats including the world renowned garden designer Madison Cox.

TangiersTen or so years ago Cox bought a run down house perched on the cliffs of Tangiers. A lot of care and thought has gone into the renovation of the house and bringing alive of the garden. The one and a half acre garden is long and narrow and has a high white masonry wall on one side and cliff edge on the other. Within the garden he has a free standing library, swimming pool, guesthouse, chicken coop, stone paths, terraces, and flower and vegetable beds. It’s a relaxed design, and looks like a total pleasure to be amongst.

My sister was also in Morocco a couple of weeks ago. Her pictures are lovely so I thought I’d include some here.
