Melbourne-based photographer Ben Thomas has traveled around the world and shot cities with the tilt-shift technique. The result are miniaturized cities that only increases more and more my aim to travel! And you?

Photgraphy+Typography+Europe= always a good call

Gokhun Guneyhan is a turkish designer who likes to travel around Europe making pictures. Yeah, I know there’s no big deal, we all do that, right? But what we don’t do is to go home, download the pictures and try to find a typography that perfectly matches the feel the city has (let’s face we’d be lucky if we get to name every folder with the name of the city the pictures where taken!). That’s probably what makes him different. And I guess also because the results are quite remarcable. I’ve been in most of the cities he’s displaying and I’ve felt somehow the same exact things his tipography shows:

 

 

3 videos: Paris

Havas-WW-Paris

Oh Paris, this crowded yet inspiring city. Who isn’t creative in Paris? Apparently no one!

Awesome Christmas video by Havas featuring different animations that represent each neighbourhood.

 

Even all those years later, Amélie is still an inspiration to many of us! Like this “Betty in Paris” video by Design Mum

Paris underwater (FYI: it really does rain a lot in Paris)

 

Modern art in Versailles

Versailles-ArtXavier-Veilhan-

Le Chateau de Versailles is a well-known palace of the french aristocracy. This is where Marie Antoinette ate cakes, and where she lost her head. Thus, it is an iconic place of the classic architecture and the visible explanation that, in the old times, aristochrats were rich and had nice houses.

This is why is quite surprising that modern art can be found across its doors. Therefore, a giant Jeff Koons balloon sculpture it’s visible in a courtyard or a Joana Vasconcelos crotched installation has been installed in the stairs.

I do think that this is jutxtaposition is quite interesting, what about you?

Canned air: a different souvenir

design, trips

canned-air-freshome-2

While travelling people tend to ask you to bring them back a gift. This is essentially what we call souvenirs and, as a matter of fact, they are usually ugly, old-fashioned and not interesting at all. Canned air is also a dumb souvenir (air from New York City? Hello, polution in a can?), but at least the design is nice and they have gone a bit further on thinking about an original gift. Apparently each can has air from the most iconic landmarks of each city.

Would you buy it?

Dancers in an urban context: Little Shao photographies

photography

Little Shao is how the Paris based Thinh Souvannarath photographer likes to be called. We focus on this artist today because of this delicate, graceful and elegant series of photographies. Focused on shooting dancers in an urban atmosphere, Shao has been capable of creating a right balance between the classical world of dance, with its shoes and clothes with the urban envoirenment. Some of you will certainly recognize some of the spots, as the métro in Paris or the Tour Eiffel.

The combination has left us a very interesting project, that you will certainly love:

 

 

Photography: Paris sous la pluie

photography, trips

Paris is a beautiful city, no one has doubts about that. However, despite the books, the films and the endless clichés about la Ville Lumière, Paris is not a sunny city. Is not the place where everyday you can see a blue sky and drink a coffee in a terrace. Actually, the rain is one of the main characters in the city and has ruined more than one romantic escape to the french capital.

Photographer Christophe Jacrot knows that and in his serie Paris sous la pluie helps us see this grey and rainy side of the city, yet beautiful and inspiring.

After this serie I hope no one will ever travel to Paris again without bringing an umbrella!
