Photographer Interview: Nuno Moreira

•••
Nuno Moriera is a photographer and visual artist from Portugal. His project ZONA is a black and white photographic exploration of the human form. His images are like vivid dreams, which explore the invisible space between the body and the mind. Describe your photographic journey so far - how did you get to the stage you are at now? I'm a very visual pers[...]

Photographer Interview: Algirdas Bakas

•••
How did you initially decide to move to China to work? What was the process and had you visited before? Before moving to China I worked in a major photography studio in Vilnius for three good years where I learned tricks of the trade but also realised that the commercial work I was doing was not inspiring me. I wanted to explore the planet and do travel p[...]

Music Interview: Classical Composer Hannah Kendall

•••
We arrived at Hannah’s home in South London, where she warmly welcomed us in and asked if we had trouble finding it. “You could interview loads of people around here,” she told me, and went on to explain how Hither Green had become a hub of artists and musicians all living within a one mile radius of each other. Like us, she had also found South London to be[...]

Right Time, Right Place- Candid Moments from Robert Rutöd

•••
"Being at the right place at the right time is usually associated with happiness and success. But what happens when we are at the right place at the wrong time? Do we even know that this is the right place? And what if it turns out that it is the wrong place after all? But the right time!” Viennese photographer Robert Rutöd aims to answer these questions wi[...]

Photographic Interview: Chiara Dondi

•••
How do you feel today? Your biggest influences? A dream of yours? Your greatest fear? Your form of escape? A chosen superpower? Your experience of adulthood? How you deal with being lost?

Creativity Has to Find You Working

•••
I would consider myself a ‘creative’ person, but then again, wouldn't everyone? We’re all born into this world, with minimal understanding of our limits, using our full heart and being our free and unapologetic selves. It’s only over time we learn that editing out the bad and keeping only ‘good’ things is the acceptable thing to do. What we don’t learn is, w[...]

Photographer Interview: Tereza Červeňová

•••
Tereza Červeňová is a Slovakian photographer, based in London. Her intimate photographs focus on the narrative of an image and how the layout of the photograph can help to pull together or invent meanings. What is your working process? During my editing process I work with many images and their layout. I try to see how they work together and how they r[...]

Film Review: Finsterworld (2013)

•••
Finsterworld is a strange film that can hold its own, but uses a plot device that many have seen before. I wonder where you draw the line of comparisons of movies when using these techniques? It would be understandable if they were using the same subject matter, or even set in the same country, or creating the same vibe, but just because it uses multiple sto[...]

Film Review: Brotherhood: Taegukgi (2004)

•••
"Brotherhood: Taegukgi” shows the horrendous events that took place on the front line during the Korean War. Spawned out of Cold War tensions, divisions created post-World War II and included three of the worlds military heavyweights (US, Russia & China), this was a brutal, unforgiving and costly war. Just under 200,000 died in total, and over 500,000 wo[...]

Photographer Interview: Bärbel Praun

•••
Bärbel Praun is a German photographer who lives everywhere yet nowhere, as she describes herself. Her photography moves between monumental landscapes which question our interactions and attitudes to nature and tourism, and small, intimate details of places and objects, a visual research and constant questioning of the notions of home and memories. How d[...]

Film Review: The New Girlfriend (2015)

•••
I had been holding off writing a review of The New Girlfriend for a while now, because I don’t think I can do it justice. This will surely rank as one of the top films of the year for me and I don’t want to do it a disservice. I’m not a professional film critic, I hadn’t even heard of François Ozon until my friend asked me to come and see this film. The firs[...]

Film Review: Play (2011)

•••
Clicking throughout Amazon looking for more DVDs to add to the collection, I catch a glimpse of Play. An indie looking film from Sweden, directed by Ruben Östlund (Force Majeure / De ofrivilliga) based on a series of actual crimes consisting of stealing via bullying and intimidation that occurred in central Gothenberg. Sold. I've always been intrigued in [...]
