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).

No monkeying around with Hiroshi Watanabe’s new photo series

Hiroshi Watanabe monkey photo

You can’t go wrong with pictures of clothed monkeys. You just can’t—the Internet is bound to eat that shit up. What otherwise sounds silly, has been tastefully executed by US-based photographer Hiroshi Watanabe, in an upcoming exhibit titled Suo Sarumawashi. I believe that Watanabe’s primate photography foray is not only eye-candy, but also matter for the creative mind too.

Forgotten Homes in Chris Mottalini’s Poignant Series ‘After You Left, They Took It Apart’

Chris Mottalini - After You Left

After You Left, They Took It Apart is the title of a series of images taken by the New York based photographer Chris Mottalini. Showing a collection Paul Rudolph-designed homes just before they were to be demolished, the series took Mottalini almost seven years to complete and presents a poignant picture of mid-century modernism at the end of its life.

Beautiful Portrait Photography by Hannes Caspar

Hannes Caspar- Henriette

Portrait photography is not something we feature all that often on The Fox Is Black. I don’t know why that is. Perhaps it’s just that portraits don’t quite capture me quite like images of distant lands or pictures that tell stories. That said, I recently discovered the portrait photography of Berlin-based photographer Hannes Caspar and was instantly drawn in. His images do seem to tell stories. The faces he captures are filled with emotions, personalities and mystery and I absolutely love them.
