I recently came across this photography series by Swedish artist Tobias Hagg. All shot from the air with drones, the photographer captures different aerial landscapes. From forests to oceans, he portrays nature as something grand and limitless.
In the series 'Hidden in Plain Sight' New York-based photographer Patricia Voulgaris creates interesting deconstructed body portraits. The viewer is left with a puzzling feeling whilst Voulgaris plays with the space, various objects and materials.
In the ongoing series 'On the Periphery', photographer Sinziana Velicescu captures minimal images of Los Angeles, her hometown. Through her pictures, we get to see a new, calm side of the otherwise very stressful yet iconic city. Using photography as a form of meditation, Velicescu uses it to cope with the hectic lifestyle bound by deadlines and LA traffic.
I really loved the lookbook of Marieyat, a new, upcoming underwear and loungewear label based in London. Focusing on seamless knitwear and using natural fabrics such as silk and cotton, the brand wants to emphasize modern yet comfortable designs. Shout out to photographer Madeleine Morlet for the dreamy, unconventional lingerie photoshoot.
If you're in the mood for some color then these photographs by Cru Camera are just what you need. Experimenting with neon lights and combining them with minimalistic floral visuals, the photographer creates stunning imagery that leans more to the imagination than reality.
Lena Emery is a graphic / print designer working for some major brands such as COS and Helmut Lang. Her work focusses on raw and pure lines without too many distractions. Her sense of style and color is simply amazing.
Kartell celebrated their 15 years of transparency, research and experimentation during Salone del Mobile. Examples are 'La Marie' by Philippe Starck (1999), 'Uncle Jack' sofa, 'Uncle Jack' armchair, 'Uncle Jo' small armchair. All presented in beautiful photographs.
So take graphic design and combine that with beautiful trimmed dogs, and you get the book 'Groomed' by photographer Paul Nathan. His portraits showcase 'beauty for beauty's sake', also in the more creative category where the hair is manipulated into shapes and dyed in different colors. Lovely.
Austrian photographer Joseph Hoflehner showcases unique and stunning locations in his published series called 'Patience'. The scenery in his pictures gives us the perfect blend between man-made and the natural world. A key element in his work is the absence of humanity. Emptiness and loneliness are the main characters in his work.
I came across the images from the Zara Lookbook for s/s 2014. The popular brand was able to get the amazing Patrick Demarchelier to shoot the campaign. Summer is definitely calling.
The 29th edition of Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography announced their 10 finalists in the fields of photography and fashion design.

In the gallery below, you can find the 10 finalists in the field of fashion design.
I came across this campaign for the Australian label 'Cameo'. Key elements of the brand are experimental prints and flattering silhouettes. I really love the creative imagery where they combine amazing photography and floral prints. Check out their online store.
For the last couple of years, Hong Kong became one of the densest urban centers of the world. 'The Architecture of Density' by Michael Wolf tries to capture this by focusing on the uniformity of the many apartment complexes in the city. For my London people, you can go see the exhibition until 22 february at the Flowers Gallery on Cork Street.
This visual cookbook from Jennifer McDonald is great. I love when people combine excellent food photography with graphic design. The artist took an alternative and analytical approach, by using infographics, into explaining how to cook certain recipes. Yum.
On the website of Cos, we find some amazing images to showcase their newest collection. 'A fresh perspective on color, texture and proportion; graphic checks, embossed surfaces and vivid tones', is how the website describes the images made by severafrahm.
South Korean artist JeeYoung Lee has produced some amazing works. Using absolutely no photoshop, she convinces us of the tactile possibilities in this digital age. "Restrained by the inherent limits of the conventional photographic medium, she adds plastic creativity and theatrical performance to it, in order to blow life into her immense needs of expression, and interrogation." To experience more of her colorful works, check out her official website.
