A Dinner Through The Eyes Of A Photographer & Chef – A Series Of Portraits Taking You Back To The Origin Of A Menu

In a series of portraits, Robbie Postma (chef) and Robert Harrison (photographer) take the viewer back to the origin of a menu. Through visual imagination and culinary flair, they evoke every step of a fine dining experience, but rather than focusing of the final, finessed dishes, MENU makes the raw, unprocessed ingredients the heroes. Served on the closest place you can get to a chef’s mind: on his face.

More info: Robert Harrison, Instagram

When creating these images, Postma and Harrison stuck to the same principles and values a chef would when creating a menu: paying a lot of attention to the details, the composition, the preparation and of course the ingredients. From cutlery to coffee bean, every component is painstakingly prepared to produce the ultimate effect. And every grain of rice was added by hand, without the aid of digital manipulation. MENU is hand crafted. Just like the best food.

Photographer Dana Lixenberg’s 22-Year-Long Series In One Of LA’s Oldest Housing Projects


Dana Lixenberg

Photographer Dana Lixenberg is the woman behind a whole stack of iconic images of your favourite rappers of yesteryear. A slightly worse-for-wear Puff Daddy laying cocooned on a bed in a fluffy towelling robe surrounded by archaic communication devices, Biggie Smalls counting 50 dollar bills in an acid-tripping jumper, a doe-eyed Tupac gazing soulfully into the camera lens: looking through Dana’s archive brings a needle and thread to all the uncredited images you’ve seen floating around the internet but never had a clue as to their origins.

Dana Lixenberg

Dana’s series, Imperial Courts, 1993-2015, which as the title suggests was captured in Imperial Courts, a social housing project in LA: one of the city’s oldest. It all started when, in the aftermath of race riots in 1992, Dana was commissioned by Dutch publication Vrij Nederland to photograph the city’s reconstruction. From there, a 22-year long project grew to span a book, exhibition and web documentary, Imperial Courts which tells the story of a place which became the epicentre of rioting against racial discrimination by the project’s African American residents in 1965 and 1992.

Review: The Automotive Design Episode of Netflix’s New Design Series

I’m absolutely thrilled that Ralph Gilles was chosen as the subject for the auto design episode of “Abstract: The Art of Design.” Partially because I knew so little about Gilles beyond his work and his reputation, and partially because he’s that rarest of designers—a business-savvy one. (Gilles got an MBA from Michigan State in the early 2000s.

As for that reputation: Since graduating from CCS in 1992, Gilles was snapped up by Chrysler. He was subsequently promoted to Manager within the design office, then Senior Manager, then Director. By 2008 he was VP of Design, then Senior VP; By 2009 he was President and CEO of Dodge. 

Following the merger with Fiat, Gilles was promoted in 2015 to Head of Design, Global, for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Involved early in his career with Chrysler’s groundbreaking 300 and later the Dodge Charger, among other models, Gilles now overseas the design for Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, Maserati and Ram.

Series creator Dadich does a masterful job of unpacking Gilles’ fascinating backstory while following along with the high-stakes venture unfolding on camera: Gilles leads a team to develop, against the clock, the radical SM-1 concept car to be presented to FCA boss Sergio Marchionne. If greenlit, the SM-1 could literally be the future of the company.

The sheer pressure of undertaking such a venture is unique to the auto design industry. To develop an entirely new car from scratch can cost a billion dollars and take five years. The car must continue to look fresh throughout the first three to six years of its service life, meaning Gilles and co. are essentially trying to design for 11 years into the future.

As with the footwear design episode, there’s plenty of eye-candy on show here, from Gilles at Italy’s famous Mille Miglia race poring over drop-dead gorgeous vintage Italian exotics; pursuing his track passion back home with an SRT Viper; and Gilles and the design teams’ sketches and full-scale mockups.

Among other illuminating moments, Gilles covers how cars transcend design and impact society, moving into the realms of tastemaking and pop cultural consciousness, as well as spawning communities of enthusiasts around particular models. And he reveals his own inner conflict with the inevitable rise of autonomous cars.

Some of the things you’ll learn about by watching this episode:

– Game-changing auto design history tidbits

– Why “interiors have become the new battleground” between brands

– Automotive designers, too, have to deal with Jimmy-Kimmel-worthy Mean Tweets

– The letter he received from Chrysler as a 14-year-old boy that later changed his life

– Why he watched “The Dukes of Hazzard” religiously

– The challenges of designing for Millennials

– What an auto design crit looks like at the corporate level

There’s plenty more, of course, but I don’t want to spoil the viewing. In addition to the look behind the curtain, I found the human aspects of this episode very compelling. With that I’ll say no more and encourage you to go watch it.

(This is not a paid plug for Netflix, but I feel I must point out, as I would to any of my friends, that Netflix is offering a free one-month trial. Plenty of time for you to check this episode out without having to commit to signing up. Watch it, you won’t be sorry.)

Ukrainian Mum Reveals Her Quintuplets In Heart-Warming Photo Series

37-year-old Oksana Kobeletskaya from Odessa had surprised Ukraine by giving birth to 5 babies on July 24th, 2016 in city maternity centre. A birth of quintuplets is believed to be a unique case for Ukraine. After an easy pregnancy she successfully delivered two girls and three boys via c-section.

More info: Instagram, Facebook

She and her husband discovered the surprising fact during the first ultrasound check. The pair has one child already, a 3-year-old daughter. Thus, now they are parents of 6 kids.

Ukrainian couple had given names to their babies the same day they were born: Aleksandra, Dariya, Denis, Vladislav and David. Happy parents were presented with a 5 bedroom apartment from Odessa city officials after they welcomed their five new arrivals. Proud parents to five new born babies have shared heart-warming photos of the quintuplets for the first time.

“Denis, Vlad, David, Sasha and Dasha pleasantly surprised us, because in their 2 months it was easier to work with them than we expected – kids slept sweetly, and we have created a wonderful story of love and friendship, which, I am sure began in a mother’s tummy for them and their parents “- photographer Julia Guseva shared her emotions on Instagram.

Photographer Nei Valente Creates An Urban Photo Series Of The NYC Newsstands

1

Nei Valente is a 27 year old Brazilian designer and street photographer. He is currently living in NYC and working at Brand Union. His latest series, “NYC newsstand”, tries to portray the current reality of the classic New York newsstands and the characters that live in and through them to create the debate about their future in the digital era. The series dialogues with the 1994 Moyra Davey series “Newsstands” that shows a completely different reality and aesthetic. Nei finds that the interesting thing about having a lot of portraits in the same theme is that you can compare and analyze how are they adapting to this new world and observe that while some keep the magazines and newspapers in front, others are giving priority to candies, snacks and souvenirs.

“This series dialogs and complements the 1994 Moyra Davey series “Newsstands”. The photos try to portray the 2016 reality through questioning about the future of the charming and classic NYC newsstands and the characters that live in and through them,” he said.

On His Own: Stunning Minimalist Photo Series By The Photographer Paweł Franik

“The photographic series entitled “On His Own” shows a human as an individual, as a loner in a big space that surrounds them. The purpose of this series is to draw attention to the fact of being alone, just with one’s own self. Very often, the viewiers blame photographers for showing the sad picture of loneliness. I show this loneliness as something peculiar, something entirely human. Because every one of us, whether lonely or living in a happy relationship and having their own family, every one needs their moment of loneliness, the moment of devoting attention to just their own self, their own thoughts and reflections. We live in the world of tremendous acceleration and the constant quest for our purposes, in the world where there is no place for the proverbial “minute for one’s own self”, for the time when you could stop, talk to your own thoughts and feel the desirable harmony. From minute to minute, we outlive our lives and get lost in this rush. Would it be worth to stop and look deep in our hearts? The purity of form, with the minimalistic exposure of a human profile, is a deliberate measure of the photographic aesthetics. Without any unnecessary additions, in pure simplicity, form and content indicate the man’s separation as an individual in their private emotional space. The photographs of “On His Own” series are an attempt of showing the beauty that can be seen in the vein of minimalism,” he said.
