/ What's new in the design digital culture

Mid-air suspense

Baby you can drive my car.. or in this case – maybe not! A-m-a-z-i-n-g mind boggling 3d photo montages and typography involving four or more wheels vehicles suspended (or not) in mid-air by Chris Labrooy.

How does one ever get the inner vision and imagination to pull something like this?

Naturally MO

Michael O’Neal trained first as a graphic designer – quickly climbed to become a talented art director. Not so unusual – but yet unusual – after a stint at Apple’s in-house graphic design group – he decided to become a photographer.

In fact, his background in design and art direction have helped shape his photographic style. The ‘naturalness’ of his subjects is both esthetically beautiful and emotional.

He’s involved in music, launched a collective, organizing photo shows and walkabouts in San Francisco / USA

365 Project

Love the self-assignment 365 Project by Jennet with a communicative instinct that is fiercely visual. She believes that design is the ultimate platform for good ideas to become irresistible ones. Well-said girl!

What are you practicing now? Have you a personal project? You should.

by V.K.Rees

Some of my favorite shots by V.K.Rees – an obvious foodie. She is a Brooklyn based photographer focusing on food, still life, and lifestyle.

The dark – almost black ones – are sumptuously well staged and lighted.

1503 (the year)

1503 is a strange and fascinating photography essay by Christian Taglianivi a Swiss-Italian residing in Switzerland. The costumes are splendid – the stance impassible. And what about those elongated necks?

No, not simply images, since he loves designing stories with open endings (requiring observer’s complicity) on unexplored themes or unusual concepts, featuring uncommon people with their lives and their thoughts made visible.

Food & Chefs

Melanie Dunea travels the world on assignment, photographing the most influential and powerful people in the public eye. In addition to her magazine editorial clients, she has shot with some of the most influential advertising, entertainment, corporate, and music companies around the world.

Book projects are her passion. Especially if they involved food & chefs.

_______

She lives in NYC and is rep by CPI.

Perfect duo!

Grace, elegance and poetic describe the art and eye of Nichole Sloane photography. The colors are so rich and vibrant you feel like jumping right in.

The nonchalance of subjects salutes Michael’s ability as a producer, to organize and create a relaxing atmosphere during a shoot.

MUD school

Ravishing photography and body paint details on MUD (Making Upward Dance) – a cutting edge dance studio dancers – communication material and website.

Identity + photography by The Clocksmiths, an italian design studio versed in communication and branding whereas they use ‘quality as the weapon against time and competence as the code’.

Lost Paradise

Loretta Lux is a german photographer whose each picture may take up to 3 months to complete. At first glance, you might mistake these works for paintings. Like prototypes, the children have alabaster skin, porcelain bodies, a penetrating stare, composure, fragility and an aura of ethereal radiance.

Her work bonds three media: photography, painting and digital effects.

Mini world / LP

A sneak preview of the staging area for the Little People concept / project I will be working on for the next 2 weeks. Played w/ some props and done a couple preliminary shoot for proportion, details, lighting etc. via iPhone before shooting w/ my Fuji x10.

I’ve written / storyboarded about 18 potential vignettes so far. Psyched about materializing my miniature world.

Stay foolish – stay inspired!
