The Fox Is Black takes over The Macallan

Elliott Erwitt for Macallan

If there’s two things I love it’s good whiskey, and obviously, beautiful photography. So it’s pretty awesome that I was asked to take over the Instagram handle for The Macallan tonight at a special event celebrating the launch of the brand’s Masters of Photography series. For the fourth edition of its series, The Macallan has commissioned renowned photographer Elliott Erwitt to capture the spirit of Scotland (where Macallan is made) through a collection of 58 images; each pair with a never before released single cask whisky from The Macallan.

If you love fine whisky and photography as much as I do, follow my photographic journey on Instagram at @The_Macallan and on Twitter at @USMacallan.

Brett Beyer photographs Jean Georges complex kitchen from above

Brett Beyer photographs Jean Georges complex kitchen from above

New York Times recently published this great photo of the kitchen of Jean Georges, one of the top French chefs in the world, which was taken by Brett Beyer. The stitched together photo is a fantastic look at the fervent pace a kitchen like Georges must maintain, and it’s quite interesting to see the inner workings of his Columbus Circle restaurant. It’s also pretty incredible that Brett was able to get a camera/cameras above the kitchen, you wouldn’t expect there to be a whole lot of room.

Be sure to see more of Brett’s work, including more awesome overhead shots like this, by clicking here.

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.

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

James Appleton photo

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.
