Richard Mosse's "Infra" series


Richard Mosse's "Infra" series is as stunning as it is unique. Somebody please order me the book!

"For centuries, the Congo has compelled and defied the Western imagination. Richard Mosse brings to this subject the use of a discontinued military surveillance technology, a type of color infrared film called Kodak Aerochrome. Originally developed for camouflage detection, this aerial reconnaissance film registers an invisible spectrum of infrared light, rendering the green landscape in vivid hues of lavender, crimson, and hot pink."

Jacob Sutton's L.E.D. Surfer



"Fashion photographer and filmer Jacob Sutton has left the studio and went into the mountains to shoot the L.E.D. Surfer. The short stars Artec pro snowboarder William Hughes. The electrifying film sees Hughes light up the snow-covered French hills in a bespoke L.E.D.-enveloped suit courtesy of designer and electronics whizz John Spatcher. Sutton, who has created work for the likes of Hermès, Burberry and The New York Times, spent three nights on a skidoo with his trusty Red Epic camera at temperatures of -25C to snap Hughes carving effortlessly through the deep snow, even enlisting his own father to help maintain the temperamental suit throughout the demanding shoot.”

Django Django - Default



One of my highlights of SXSW was catching Scottish psychedelic rockers Django Django at a Brooklyn Vegan party last week. This video to the first single of their excellent self titled album plays homage to their art school backgrounds, with over 4000 frames of the video being individually painted or cut out for collage. A fun little fact is that the director of the video, Dan Brereton, once designed a t-shirt for Das Monk.

Nancy Fouts


I love these surreal sculptures by Nancy Fouts. If Rene Magritte had photoshop back in his day, he would've made a few sculptures like these.

Sures - The Sun



This is probably the most inappropriate song I could have posted on this absolutely miserable day here in Sydney, but it's an absolute gem. Short but sweet, it's a wistful little ditty, part campfire singalong and part beachside pop (hello Pet Sounds!). The duo is supporting Real Estate and The Twerps this Friday, so if you were lucky enough to score a ticket then be sure to get there early to catch these guys too.
