We are amazed by New York-based artist Eric Cahan’s work. Cahan’s current project, Sky Series, which he captured on his extensive travels is what caught our attention. Each piece of work is titled by the time and location of its creation. Cahan says it’s almost like a journal to keep track of his travels, “During my travels, I discover what I want to document. My works are titled to remind me of the experience, both visually and spiritually.” As viewers, we get to be part of his journey in a way. We were drawn to this specific photograph, “41.052491,-71.95825 Sunset 8:10pm,” as it essentially tells a color story. Interestingly, Cahan uses Photoshop very little to create the color curves. He uses colored resin filters and holds them in front of the lens while shooting. It takes a specific artist and one that is well-versed to create the work that Cahan creates and we admire him for that.
The Guardian posted images shot from European Space Agencyand Nasa satellites this past January, from glaciers to cloud shapes to snow-covered deserts all over the world. One image really stood out to us and even fits into the color inspiration and feel of our Spring 2013 line – the shot taken of the Payún volcanic field of Argentina that was formed over hundreds of thousands of years. What’s even more fascinating is that the color you see isn’t the real color of the land, and is made from a combination of visible and infrared light. Like any map key, green indicates vegetation, black indicates lava flows, and orange is bare rock rich in iron oxides. Fashion always seems to find a way to connect back to nature…
Guess who? Clue: we hear he’s collaborating with Lancome on a new beauty line set to come out this summer and we just adore him…
We stumbled across this gorgeous black and white shot by Polish photographer, Andrzej Laskowski. We love the innocence and purity that is captured in this scene. It also makes us hopeful for beautiful things to happen this upcoming winter, which begins this Friday!
In honor Columbus Day, here’s a gorgeous panoramic one of our colleagues took at one of the natural wonders of America (the world, really), the Grand Canyon.
Stumbled across this photo of people overlooking the city of Chicago on the 103rd floor of a building. It almost looks like they are floating in the air!
In Beirut, Lebanon, there is a group of designers and artists, called Dihzahyners, that are dedicated to making their streets brighter and more beautiful with the use of color – literally. The initiative is called “Paint Up” and they color the city step by step. The design above of 73 Steps took 7 hours and a dozen designers. We can’t get enough of the vibrants steps that add such a burst of liveliness to the city.
