Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

Flying Houses

posted by on 03/03/2015

Anything or anyone that appeals to my inner child will probably soon have my attention. Manipulated photography like this does just that, not because it’s childish but because it’s fun! Laurent Chehere is a French photographer whose work I greatly admire for its versatility. In this project he manipulates typical French houses into… typical French flying houses, obviously. Have a look at the attention to detail after the cut.

I’m sincerely sorry if you’re sick of seeing Wes Anderson related posts but how can you be?! When it comes to visual inspiration his films are wonders, even if his characters are irritating at times. Today I’m actually drawing attention to a Tumblr page, no not one of those dirty ones, Wes Anderson Palettes highlights and illustrates the precise colour palettes used by Anderson in his films. Beautiful stills become even more intriguing when their colours are isolated. At a time when a lot of popular “urban photographers” utilise gloomy palettes with every Instagram post, I think we could all take a leaf out of Wes Anderson’s colouring book. More after the cut.

Converse | Made by You

Footwear says a lot about someone, right? When it comes to sneakers, one sneaker in particular has always been a sort of self portrait of those wearing them. An extension of their character and their creativity. I am, of course, referring to the legendary Converse Chuck Taylor’s. If any sneaker is allowed to be called a classic, it’s the Chuck Taylor’s; withstanding the test of time since 1917. Made by You is a campaign from Converse celebrating the self-expression and experiences marked on these iconic sneakers. London-based artist Damilola Odusote has created an art installation in Shoreditch with the help of students from Central Saint Martins to bring this brilliant campaign to our home city. It’s open to the public, and you need to check it out. Read more after the jump.
