Swimming Pool

Swimming Pool is a photo essay by Maria Svarbova and was shot at the Malina pool in Bratislava, Slovekia.

_______

I picked these four shots for the intemporality of the dreamy turquoise palette + absence of contrast except for those punchy red, orange and yellow details.

Zaha Hadid – RIP

ZAHA HADID 1950-2016. RIP

What a shocker – I have admired her work immensely – probably one of the most original + breaker of norms + status quo + glass ceiling.

portrait: Sebastian Böttcher

_______

Her architectural signature is recognizable the world around. Someone titled her The Queen of Curves! How apt indeed.

Most definitely sitting in the pinnacle forum of those top of them all architects. She was an all around nice person – not a diva.

A work selection in black & white.

_______

Zaha Hadid’s early work played a huge role in my development as a designer. She was one of the best to ever do it. This is one of her paintings from 1982. What a gift.

_______

"Zaha’s drawings were never pure representation or simple formal research, but necessary tools for design production. Early drawings were a means of altering and modifying the plan, leading to the disappearance of difference between 2D and 3D.

In an interview, Hadid describes that she was attempting to appropriate the moving quality of elemental forms in Malevichs’ paintings in order to inject the idea of motion and energy in architecture, and thus free the plan from its static role."

_______

Zaha Hadid is not only the most distinct, successful and influential architect of her generation, she is also among the most intellectual.

Her works are often described as fluid, curvilinear and organic, featuring unique lines and shapes and oblique inspirations.

Exceptional eye

Nina Struve is one of those amazing photographers gifted with an exceptional eye for capturing the best light – angle – staging. She also conveys this calmness and non-intrusive artistry.

_______

Her varied topics are the stars. Period. And that is what makes a photographer, great. This easiness, is the sum of hard work.

12 K of K

12 Kinds of Kindness by Jessica Walsh + Timothy Goodman.

_______

Two self-centered New Yorkers, often focused on what’s ahead instead of what’s around them, created a series of 12 steps as a way to become kinder, more empathetic people.

As a resolution, they practiced this for 12 months.

Lucid yet dreamy

Selina Alko is a terrific illustrator! Her work is lucid yet dreamy, one can sense the social commentary passed – especially evident in her book covers.

_______

Her optimism permeates her work. She believes that change is always possible.

LUV drawing / #1

Illustration is probably the largest creative area to express (mostly without words) a message. Application media are endless.
