Friederike von Rauch’s Beautifully Atmospheric Series ‘Sleeping Beauties’

Friederike von Rauch - Sleeping Beauties

The Berlin-based photographer Friederike von Rauch is one of my favorite photographers working today. Originally starting out as a silversmith, von Rauch stepped behind the camera while working as a location scout for film productions and ever since she’s been taking some of the most striking images I’ve ever seen. Her latest work, Sleeping Beauties, is a slight departure from her normal images of monochrome buildings and industrial landscape. These images peer behind the scenes of museums and galleries throughout Europe, offering us a glimpse at the artwork after-hours.

Last week Time Magazine shared a fantastic collection of photographs taken by the Hungarian photographer Tamas Dezso. The series – entitled Notes For an Epilogue – presents a portrait of Romania and highlights how the former Eastern Bloc nation is now in a moment of transition, with both its spiritual tradition and its physical heritage simultaneously disintegrating.

Richard Mosse’s Enclave Portrays a Hellish Conflict in New Palette: Pink

Mosse-Enclave-1

Artist and photographer, Richard Mosse, is no stranger to The Fox Is Black: Bobby covered his work over a year ago. But, as of September this year, the culmination of his two year stint in the Congo has been released. Titled The Enclave, it puts an otherworldly twist on the conflict happening there, as well as any preconceptions you might have previously had towards war.

Life at Sea glimpsed through Luke Casey’s Photo Series ‘Porthole’

'Porthole' by Luke Casey

The UK-born and Hong Kong-based photographer Luke Casey has created a striking series of images at sea. Entitled ‘Porthole’, the series is shot on film and framed through the small grubby glass of a ship’s porthole window. It’s a wonderful collection of images, with each one celebrating travel and showing the beautiful scenes spotted from on-board the ship.

James Appleton truly captures the wonder of the outdoors

It seems obvious to me that you should start a spree of posts about the great outdoors with photos of the great outdoors. And these are some pretty GREAT photos. James Appleton is a photographer who you probably describe as “extreme” and not look stupid saying it. A good example are the photographs he captured of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano as it went nuts back in 2010, which you can see at top. Hell, even Wired did a piece about him and his photos.

A Portrait of Designer Corin Mellor by Carol Sachs

I love to peer behind the scenes and take a look at the lives of people who create things. I love to get a glimpse of the places they work, the tools that they use and even the cars that they drive. Perhaps it’s that I hope to get to see something more. Maybe I’ll find what inspires them, what drives them or even gain a new perspective on their work. That’s why I love this series by Brazilian photographer Carol Sachs. Showing a day-in-the-life of designer Corin Mellor, it offers a fantastic glimpse behind the scenes and shows us where Mellor creates his silverware, tableware and furniture.

Toilet Paper is a Publication You Won’t Want to Flush Down the Drain

ToiletPaper-Magazine-0

Toilet Paper is perhaps the most bizarre, shocking, and borderline-subversive publication I’ve ever picked up… And I love it. A bi-annual magazine, it’s the child of (super-talented) artist Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari. I highly recommend any self-respecting creative to pick one up, as my words can hardly do their work justice. It’s simply an experience you have to hold in your hands and observe with your own eyes. But that doesn’t mean I’m not stubborn enough to try (heh).
