a muse named Patti

PHOTOGRAPHER Judy Linn using Patti Smith as her muse between the periods of 1969 and 1977. Linn is a great observer of how the big and small pictures are already within one another. I love how she loves the grays, and how she fades light into white the way an abstract painter does. Her photos exude a softness that I want more of in this world, they invite touch. That touch says the world is to be enjoyed and absorbed and clearly Patti and Judy did. This fashion shoot that Patti Smith and Judy Linn evoke is a great tribute to the perennial richness of life on the skinny.

NORMAL rules don’t apply.
Iris van Herpen stands for a reciprocity between craftsmanship and innovation in technique and materials.
She creates a new direction of couture that combines fine handwork techniques with futuristic digital technology. The following pieces are from her Radiation Invasion collection. See for yourself just how breathtakingly inspring her working truely is.


I will visit this place some day.

"The Sequoia is one of nineteen National Forests in California. It takes its name from the giant sequoia, the world's largest tree, which grows in more than 30 groves on the forest's lower slopes. The Sequoia's landscape is as spectacular as its trees. Soaring granite monoliths, glacier-torn canyons, roaring whitewater, and more await your discovery at the Sierra Nevada's southern end. Elevations range from 1,000 feet in the foothill region to peaks over 12,000 feet in the rugged high country, providing visitors with some of the most spectacular views of mountainous landscape in the entire west."
