Because of the expert styling and lighting these definitely feel like works of art, and the subtlety of each movement is just so that it takes a second to figure out that something is happening. It’ll be cool to see how Jean-Yves continues to evolve this sort of technique and what the practical applications would be for a technique like this.
Robin Friend’s Belly of the Whale is a moody and atmospheric collection of photographs. His ongoing series is shot in-and-around Dartmoor in England’s West Country and it presents a body of work that embraces exploration, chance encounters, adventure and discovery. It’s a fantastic series and Friend’s lens captures both nature and man at their most beautiful and their most raw.
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.
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.

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.
