  • Milk Bathtub
    Sleeping next to someone you love is like laying in a deep bathtub full of warm milk. This notion was the premise for Brooklyn-based photographer Andrew T. White, to create this ethereal series of photographs with model and collaborator Natasza Wasilewski. The imagery is the result of a reflection on intimacy and the tangible qualities of […]
  • Brasília Revisited
    Brasília, Brazil’s planned architectural capital, is a combination of design efforts from Oscar Niemeyer, Lucio Costa, and Burle Marx. The visionary city is full of sweeping curves and unique forms bound together by long expanses of parks and fountain-filled pools. Bruno Candiotto‘s photo series, Brasília, captures the sublime nature of the city’s architecture, accurately portraying the capital as a […]

    An inventive visual exercise was put into action by the designer and founder of Maeve, Sandro Weber, and the photographer Giglio Pasqua, as both explored the modernist setting of the Cocoon building in Zurich.

  • Table Tennis
    London–based photographer Bruno Drummond embarked on a curious experiment this summer. Interested in the behavioural similarity between disparate moving elements — like liquids, and hundreds of table tennis balls — Drummond had 1,500 ping pong balls shipped from China for a photographic project. He set about making photographs, showing hundreds of balls the moment they were thrown or dropped from height. The images […]

  • Was ist Metaphysik?
    The conflict between what the architect has on his mind and what is actually possible to build will always be a significant factor for pushing the possibilities of new technology and constructions.

  • Pierre/Paysage
    Crafted by Canadian artist Karen Zalamea, Pierre/Paysage  (Stone/Landscape in French) is a collection of ten photographic images presenting transformed representations of space. Layers of acetate were cut into different geometric shapes, carefully positioned and lit to create different formal arrangements, alluding to abstract yet quite tangible architectonic, topographic and cartographic silhouettes – at once diaphanous and yet […]

    A collaboration between London-based photographer Bruno Drummond and set designer Hattie Newman, Paper Mountains, recycles and decontextualizes the intricate paper sculptures created by Hattie for a project both had previously worked on, suddenly giving them new life. Generally speaking sets for photoshoots tend to be made as one offs — once the shoot is over the […]
