IKEA + Carl Kleiner>
Last year IKEA teamed up with photographer Carl Kleiner and made a series of really inspiring photos for the cookbook “Homemade is best”. The images showed all the ingredients lined out on the table in a new, modern and minimalistic way – and it became a huge viral success. Now IKEA and Kleiner has teamed up again, this time also with stylist Evalina Kleiner. This time the images show what kitchen applies you can get from IKEA, on a tight budget. The result is surprisingly decorative and elegant!
Halloween Dog Parade 2011>
I know it’s in the middle of Christmas, but I just simply have to post about this Halloween Dog Parade. Photographer Winnie Au visited the parade in Tompkins Square Park, NYC, this year and sat up his outdoor studio to take portraits of the dogs. I simply love the creativity of these costumes, and being from Norway ( a country who recently started celebrating Halloween) this really amazed me. Personally I think the hole Halloween celebration is a bit silly and over the top for my taste, and I promise to never dress up my cat like that, but still I cant help but to adore and to smile of these amazing costumes and photos by Winnie Au. More pictures after the jump – enjoy!
Las Vegas Carpets>
Last night it was yet again time for Pecha Kucha here in Oslo. Since the last couple of Pecha’s has had few interesting presentations, I was really surprised by the fun and exiting projects that were presented in the first round yesterday. On of them was photographer Chris Maluszynski who, by coincident turned his camera down to the floor when he was in Las Vegas, and discovered a world of crazy patterns. His carpet-photographies are overwhelming with all the colors and patterns, but still I find them to be so ugly that they become really nice…
Ruins of Detroit>
I have always been fascinated by ruins, and I remember the first time I snook into an abandond house. Watching all the personal object that were left behind and reading old newspapers dated 50 years back. To hold someone else’s private objects like that and being in their house, was a strange feeling and the reasons to why they left and what had happened just kept spinning around in my head. Photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre have taken some amazing pictures of abandoned theaters and ruins of Detroit. More after the jump….
It seem to be a bit of a dry spell when it comes to furniture and product design at he moment- everyone is waiting for the furniture fairs in Stockholm (february) and Milan (aprile) to launch their new works. So while we wait for new and exiting furniture stuff; heres a beautiful photo series by German Matthias Heiderich. The series called «Snow Blind» plays with the perception of colors when there is so much bright white around. This is really describing to how it is in oslo these days, and i love the use of color.
