Photographer Steven Hughes documents what might be a first in weddings. Christine and Jim’s theme for their wedding was Saturday Morning. It involved all of the things the couple liked doing together on relaxing Saturday mornings: wearing PJs, drinking coffee, eating breakfast and crossword puzzles. Steven has beautifully captured it all in his photos on his blog.
People are always banging on about ‘finding yourself’ when you go traveling. But when you’re living in hostels and greyhound stations, the reality is that mostly the only time you’re alone is on the toilet. So after traveling for five months, I rented a room in Calgary and spent most of two months in solitude, painstakingly working away on this series of self-portraits. I still haven’t found myself.
This sweet little project going on in Melbourne involves sleepovers. Cara Fox writes short stories about them and Douglas E Pope photographs them. The resulting collection will be exhibited later this year.
Robin Schwartz’s daughter is one lucky girl to have such an amazing photo album of a childhood surrounded by amazing animals. These surreal photographs are almost like a recreation of an imaginary childhood we wish we all had.

I first saw Kurt Braunohler in Kristen Schaal’s show at the Melbourne Comedy Festival a couple years back and was immediately taken by his wide-eyed charm. He’s just started working on this rather hilarious series of animal videos. They’re choc full of amazing facts worth bringing up at your next dinner party.
