  • Dreaming of Dubai
    More info
    50 years ago Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum had a dream about how his city should have been. This city was Dubai, and nowadays this is a over 2 millions people metropoli and the scenario for the most unbelievable architectural project in the world, starting from the Burj Khalifa, that with its 828 meters, is the highest building in the world, not to mention the Palm Islands, artificial archipelago shaped as a palm tree. German photographer Johannes Heuckeroth went there to take some portraits of this city and published a book called Dreaming of Dubai which actually has been his bachelor thesis. (Unfortunatly, the dream of some is actually the nightmare of thousands and thousands, infact Dubai is infamous for its enslaved workforce from south Asia.) making of

    We want to see the world through a rose-colored lens. Or a blue lens. Or a yellow lens. We love the new Instax monochromatic lenses so much that we sent them to a group of emerging international photographers to see how they captured the world through their own colorful perspectives. Cru Camara Manila, Philippines Are you a full-time photographer? If not, what else do you do? Technically, I'm still trying to finish school. I'm right in the middle of earning my BFA. What themes or ideas are you most interested in photographing? A lot of my work has to do with making everyday things or occurrences into more than what they initially are. Color drives a lot of the images because it lets me highlight those subtleties. I'm also drawn to a certain feeling of ambiguity, especially with the way I put the images together. There's always some sort of fragmentation happening, I think. Can you share more about what you shot for this series? I just wanted to come up with something quiet, maybe a bit melancholic and nostalgic. What was your first camera? An old Nikon FM2 my dad bought back in the 80s. What’s your favorite photo you’ve ever taken? Probably this one. What photographers do you most admire? There are too many to name all at once! I look at a lot of Rinko Kawauchi's work. I admire a lot of contemporary photographers from the Philippines too like Czar Kristoff, Tim Serrano, Charles Salazar, just to name a few. Everyone's doing great stuff out here. Who are some of your favorite people to follow on Instagram? Mostly other photographers. My favorite to look at right now is Nguan (@_nguan_). Katherine Gaskin Toronto, Canada Are you a full-time photographer? If not, what else do you do? I wouldn't consider myself a full-time photographer or even a 'photographer,' but recently, taking photos has become a part of my work. I'm a freelance web/graphic designer and since I can basically work from anywhere with Wi-Fi, I really love to travel. Can you share more about your photography — how do you describe your work? I want my photos to inspire happiness, feed people's wanderlust, and brighten their day with vivid colors. Most of the time, I feel like I'm living in my own dream world and I hope my photos can give people an escape every so often. It's fun to tap into our imaginations. What themes or ideas are you most interested in photographing? Things that make me happy = Sunsets, tropical beaches, palm trees, salty pineapples, frolicking around in teeny bikinis, sandy feet, tanned skin, coconuts, the ocean... Can you share more about what you shot for this instant photo series? Having fun adventuring around the island of Oahu doing things that make my heart happy like beach hopping, floating in the ocean, holding pineapples and watching the sunset. What was your first camera? It was a 35mm camera that had Ninja Turtles on it. I wish I still had it. What’s your favorite photo you’ve ever taken? The first time I ever took a pineapple and my GoPro into the ocean then realized that pineapples float! What photographers do you most admire? I don't admire any particular photographers, but I have a strong appreciation for the creative artists out there who take photos every day, share what they love and continue to evolve their craft. Being an artist seems so competitive these days and if you can stay true to yourself and your own unique style, that's something I can respect. Who are some of your favorite people to follow on Instagram? @thelifeofjessicaa @sarahirenemurphy @_carlybrownphotography_ @masonrosephoto @morganmaassen Kimberley Dhollander Antwerp, Belgium Can you share more about your photography — how do you describe your work? I think my work consists mostly of dreamy, colorful images. I like to work with lines, textures and colors. Outside of that I also shoot interiors, coffee shops, some portraits, and the occasional street photography. Can you share more about what you shot for this series? I started walking in Antwerp, my hometown, and was looking out for little details: shades of trees, walls, facades… anything that looked i

  • Photography by Javier Lovera
    More info
    Born and raised in Colombia, Javier Lovera moved to Toronto back in 2006 after just having finished his M.Sc. in Aerospace Engineering, but found himself doubting his future in engineering: "- I knew I didn't want to be an engineer but didn't know what I wanted to do. I enrolled in a couple of darkroom photography classes and absolutely fell in love with photography and design. Then my wife introduced me to the photographer Steve Carty and I apprenticed with him for a year until I was starting to get my own work, and here we are now." Now his work has featured in national and international magazines such as NUVO, ZINK, Filler, Poor But Sexy, and Contra Magazine, and in 2009, he was one of the winners of the Applied Arts Magazine Photography Annual competition in the fashion and beauty category. Javier finds inspiration in a lot of things, but says his family might be the most important source of inspiration: "- My wife and family are incredibly inspiring and energizing, and are essential to me to be able to work in this world. My wife is also my best and toughest critic, and I always bounce ideas around with her. I also find that collaboration and conversation with other visual artists always takes your ideas further. Visually and conceptually, I find inspiration in a wide arrange things: films (directors like Fellini, Kurosawa, and Kubrick), the work of other photographer's and artists, literature, graphic design, and music (specially jazz). I don't believe inspiration comes all of a sudden to you. I think you need to actively seek it, feeding yourself in a very honest way with things you find appealing. When you do that, its like a rabbit hole and you can find yourself in unexpected and exciting places." Here's some of his work: More pictures inside the post.

  • 'The Bell Jar' by Sylvia Plath Reading Matters
    More info
    Fiction - paperback; Faber and Faber; 240 pages; 2009. Free copy for our Book Group courtesy of the publisher. I first read Sylvia Plath's one and only novel, The Bell Jar, as a young 20-something, when I was hugely unsure of my place in the world. Indeed, I'd graduated but my career prospects were thwarted by a massive recession (it was 1991) and I was making ends meet by working part-time in a book shop. Reading The Bell Jar was a rewarding experience, because the main character, Esther Greenwood, was also coming to terms with her place in the world -- or not coming to terms with it, as it turned out. As I read about Esther sliding further and further into depression, I realised my life wasn't so bad after all. But I did find The Bell Jar very dark and bleak. Reading the book for the second time...

  • Lost in Wonderland by Elouise van Riet-Gray
    More info
    Elouise van Riet-Gray has been shooting for a few years, but it wasn't until recently that she started pushing it into fashion photography. In fact, if you had asked her a few years ago she wouldn't even know she was going to make her living of photography at all: "- It took me a long time to work out what I wanted to do for a career and it wasn't till after I had children that I finally worked out I was creative. Although I must credit my best friend for giving me a photography book for my 21st birthday, she obviously knew me better than I did then. I really love the collaboration and the creative process of fashion due to combination of eclectic creative minds." Shooting for a lot of commercial clients, Elouise hasn't been able to dedicate much time to fashion photography and getting published. But today she's making her debut on Ben Trovato with a truly magical exclusive story called Lost in Wonderland, featuring wonderful model Lydia Hunt with Viviens Models. Holly Janet Ryan did the styling, while Meg Durrington did hair and make up. Elouise says this about the story: "- The location was an inspiration for this story. Its at a place called the "Old Museum" in Brisbane. Its just on the edge of the CBD but has this crazy garden. Well cared for by Eduardo, he was so proud of his oversized corn, I had to take a shot in the corn....the one with the blue dress and yellow hat. It initially wasn't intended to reference "Alice in Wonderland" but it seemed to head that way during the shoot, so we casually pursued the feeling." She loves the ability to be theatrical and surreal with fashion photography, and says colors, and especially bright colors inspires her: "- My work generally ends up coming back to strong colours and unusual colour combinations. The photographers who stick in my mind also use bright colours, Greg kadel, Troyt Coburn, but an exception to the rule is Rodney Smith." Ben Trovato is thrilled to present Lost in Wonderland by Elouise van Riet-Gray, for Ben Trovato: Credits Photography and Retouching - Elouise van Riet-Gray Assistant photographer - George Le Couteur Hair & Make up - Meg Durrington Styling - Holly Janet Ryan Model - Lydia Hunt @ Viviens Models Full story inside the post.
