Laurent Nivalle Le Mans Classic 0

Absolutely gorgeous photography from French artist Laurent Nivalle of the 2010 Le Mans Cassic. It reminds a lot of the work on show in the book Go Faster which I reviewed for FormFiftyFive earlier in the year.

35mm 0

A brilliantly simple short spotted by Nikolay over on FFF. 35mm reduces 35 famous flicks into the bare essentials and depicts them with sharp and clean visual style.

An interview with The New York Times 0

An interesting interview with Graphics Director of the NY Times, Steve Duenes. Discussing the role of graphic designers (graphic reports & editors as they refer to them at the NY Times) he raises some interesting points on the finality and constant need for authoritative editing in the print publication. Juxtaposed online with boundless space for more copy and updates, it’s amazing how quickly they work to produce graphics and interactive data visualisations as news stories break.

Produced by Gestalten to coincide with an up coming book Turning Pages which is a snapshot of the best in print and editorial design from those who are currently breaking ground to redefining print. It looks like a well researched and comprehensive book and should be available later on in the summer.

Vincent Fournier 0

Photographer Vincent Fournier has a strong focus on the scientific, charting astronaut training fields through to antarctic research bases. His work captures the beauty and often otherworldly disconnection from reality found on the extremes of scientific research.

In a large majority of his landscape photos it’s easy to draw a comparison to Sci-Fi epic’s like Star War’s planets of Tatooine (home of Luke Skywalker) and the snow planet of Hoth. Did someone just spot an AT-AT?

Spotted in this months always inspiring issue of WIRED UK magazine.

Irina Dakeva—Breakbot 1

Whilst visiting Collette at KK Outlet in Hoxton last week I was delighted to find this little gem right at the back. Using thousands of water colour paints, a selection of which is on show at KK Outlet, Irina Dakeva has created this fluid, colourful and upbeat video for Breakbot. A steady hand and a lot of patience has really paid off especially when you see the original frames which are extremely captivating.

Shame that Irina doesn’t seem to have a folio online but is currently represented by WIZZ.

SLAM 0

SLAM is the latest book to be designed by FUEL taking a look at the world that is Mexican wrestling more commonly known as Lucha Libre. With sensational fighting and curiously bright, intricate and detailed outfits there’s definitely an air of mystery that’s hard to ignore when it comes to this infamous Mexican sport. It’s easy to sympathise with photographer Katinka Herbert who has been obsessed with these men in tights and masks for the last 8 years. Traveling back and forth to Mexico, Katinka has spent a long time photographing legendary fighters in a myriad of poses and locations displaying the importance and range of this sport.

SLAM is currently being published and is available from 15th July 2010. By the looks of the PDF spreads and Katinka’s engimatic shots, it looks like SLAM is turning will be able provide a hefty tombstone to it’s opponents.
