In her ongoing photographic series, I Fought The Law, Locher turns the unusual, still-existing laws in the United States into quirky […]

By Maria Niarchos in New Photography on Tuesday 21 May 2013

Artist Heidi Lender donned a black wig (with the occasional prop) and posed her way in front of varied black graphic backdrops. Inspired by her own mother, Lender’s photography series gives a firm nod to all the superwomen of the world (our mothers) who manage to do it all, in style as well. In Heidi […]

New Pantone food pairings by dschwen

Maria Niarchos Reader Find

By Maria Niarchos in New Photography on Friday 3 May 2013

Say hello to yet another collection of brilliantly put together Pantone porn. Instagramer, dschwen is driving the Pantone Pairings Project, one swatch at a time. The simplicity and constraints around his pairings are the real power-punches. As a sucker for anything Pantone, the gawking that followed my find of dschwen’s work doesn’t need explaining.

Armpit tube map

Maria Niarchos Reader Find

By Maria Niarchos in New Trends on Saturday 13 April 2013

There is nothing worse than kicking off your day crammed on public transport with a sneezing-mess to your left and someone’s armpit to your right. Not to mention the impossible task of getting in a thorough map consultation. But what if that armpit was fully lined, with all the necessary location details you could need […]

British photographer Tom Broadbent has spent the last few years travelling around the UK developing his latest work, At Home With the Furries, by sticking his beak into the everyday lives of a group of dess-up-lovers known as Furries.

170 foot long trampoline track in a Russian forest

Maria Niarchos Reader Find

By Maria Niarchos in Cool Travel on Thursday 17 January 2013

If you could make the drive to work a thing of the past by jumping your way along a massive trampoline, you’d do it, right? Salto Architects decided it’d be a damn good idea to try out, installing a 170 foot long trampoline track in a Russian forest. The brains behind the design had a bigger plan that just installing a whole heap of fun, though. Renowned for blurring the different levels of architecture, Salto set out to challenge the concept of infrastructure that shows an ignorance to its surroundings. They wanted to evoke a conversation; new thoughts about the way we move. Bigger-picture-thinking, lawsuits and insurance aside, I’m sold on the whole ‘hop, skip and a jump’ thing.

Dough portraits by Soren Dahlgaard

Maria Niarchos Reader Find

By Maria Niarchos in New Photography on Thursday 23 August 2012

I’ve often blurted my thoughts on the odd (unfortunate) case where someone’s face reminds me of a blob of dough; two holes poked for the eyes, one for the nose, another for the mouth. I probably don’t need to tell you that my vision wasn’t always appreciated. I’ve held back my thoughts on the matter until today. Coming across Danish artist Soren Dahlgaard’s series of Dough Portraits is like one of those moments where the skies open, sunlight beams down upon us, and the opera ‘aahh’s’ chime in.

Maria Niarchos Reader Find

By Maria Niarchos in New Design on Friday 27 July 2012

Ever wondered what it’d be like to lug around a set of antlers? Just in case you have, Ana Rajcevic’s collection of 8 personal adornments gives you every opportunity to figure it out for yourself. Rajcevic has done the hard yards and pushed beyond the boundaries of traditional jewellery/accessories design to create a handcrafted ‘new breed’ of precious objects; giving life to her visual interpretation of animal anatomy, stretching concepts of evolution and developing a cross-image of human and animal, these pieces are designed to appear as natural extensions of the human body.

Cut It Out street art campaign by Cyrcle

Maria Niarchos Reader Find

By Maria Niarchos in New Art on Tuesday 17 July 2012

A bunch of street-art blokes getting their ‘floral’ on isn’t as sweet n’ simple as it seems. Cyrcle’s clever Cut It Out campaign has carried their voice with a brilliant contrast of strong political opinion and their choice of pretty floral tones. Right before 4th of July celebrations in America, Cyrcle took to the streets again and finished their latest mural, Beautiful Disaster.

Maria Niarchos Reader Find

By Maria Niarchos in New Photography on Wednesday 11 July 2012

Seems model Dasha Z is the fairest of Biryukov’s lense. Photographer Nikolay Biryukov snapped these classic black and whites for Fashion Gone Rogue’s latest exclusive, Mirror, Mirror. If you’ve managed to peel your eyes off the devastatingly striking Dasha, you would’ve also noticed she’s doing a damn fine job sporting a wardrobe of Jil Sander, La Perla and Prada threads.
