IN SEVEN DAYS AROUND THE WEB #27
Wait what? It's autumn, in mid August? Hands up if you aren't ready to get out your woolly jumpers and start layering up! To tide you over into the cosy season, I've summed up the past week's internet material in one article. So what are you waiting for, get yourself a cup of tea, curl up on the sofa and get reading!
My friend Alice has just launched her new website - she's an incredibly talented illustrator that's definitely worth keeping an eye on. Mark my words, she'll be a big'un soon.
Rachel Comey is one of those designers I have been admiring on the internet for ages, but never actually seen in the flesh. She opened her first shop in Soho last June and Sabrina of AfterDRK went to take a look. The shop will definitely be on my list of places to visit next time I'm in NY (read: in 5 years or so...).
I read a story on Tokyo's potted gardens in an issue of The Plant Journal ages ago and have been itching to take a look for myself ever since. The Garden Edit has just uploaded a collection of beautiful images further drawing my attention to it. Booking my flights in 5, 4, 3,... (via Freunde von Freunden)
Another plant based recommendation is this feature on AnOther: "It's easy to visualise the blossom fields of Japan; the tulip fields of Holland. But what do we have in London? Our local bloom moments are much less obvious. An exciting challenge then for photographer Benjamin McMahon, who AnOther invited to document some of London's hidden floral moments." Check out the beautiful images here.
Ever wondered what the Monocle office looks like? Well all is to be revealed, because YCN has just gone to take a look behind the scenes, and let me say this, I wouldn't mind working there!
(German content) Ein köstlicher Artikel von Tobias Rüther in der FAZ, der mir von einer Freundin empfohlen wurde. Jeder, der mal sein Essen fotografiert hat oder in der Markthalle IX in Kreuzberg war, sollte diesen auf jeden Fall lesen.
All you art and culture bloggers out there, make sure to apply to get a residency at the abc this year. Apart from getting full access to the art fair, your work will be published on the EYEOUT blog, as well as the abc online journal. Sounds tempting? Apply here!
I bought myself Viviane Sassen's book Pikin See just last week and am amazed at her playful approach to photography. Her new series Axiom looks to be pushing the boundaries even more. I can't wait to try and recreate some of her images and see what I can achieve with coloured perspex.
The lovely Tine has once again managed to find something I haven't heard about yet - The art collective The Tappan Collective sells affordable art pieces, including photographs of the new girl about town Gia Coppola. Apart from selling art, the collective also publishes beautiful home stories of their artists. Here's Tine's article on Journelles (sorry, it's in German).
Lana Pribic manages to amaze me with her photographs all the time - her eye for the right moment is outstanding. A simple scene, such as cows stood in a field, might go unnoticed by most, but not Lana. Here's her blog post.
That's it from me, I can't wait to wrap myself in a blanket and get on with some work this weekend. Apart from having a WHOLE box full of analogue photographs I never managed to scan in, I will also tackle a few unedited interviews I have conducted for In A Pavilion... À bientôt my dears!
