Mark Zibert + Applied Arts Magazine

Mark Zibert’s new series, “Fuck Luck,” created for Applied Arts Magazine, deals with the idea that luck has nothing to do with creating great, inspiring work. Instead, it comes from hard work, dedication, and digging for inspiration where no one else is looking.   Great work comes from attention to detail and unrivaled craftsmanship. No one looks at their work and thanks luck.

Luck is fiction.

Floto + Warner & Dwell

Floto + Warner headed to Block Island, off the coast of Rhode Island, to shoot a home designed by Jens Risom for the December/January cover of Dwell. “Built in the late 1960s, the house was featured in the September 8, 1968 issue of Life magazine as an exciting example of a “ready-made house.” Other than new glass for the north facade and a reconstructed brick chimney, the house hasn’t changed since it was assembled on-site over 45 years ago. Jens’s four children and 11 grandchildren now share the structure.”

Martin Schoeller + Heart Gallery NYC

Martin recently donated his time to shoot Close Up portraits of New York City foster kids in alliance with the non-profit organization Heart Gallery NYC.   The images were collected into a television spot that was recently showing in Times Square and the Penn Station Rotunda to help raise awareness of the thousands of children in New York who need and deserve permanent homes.

The Heart Gallery was founded in New Mexico in 2001 by the New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department. National media attention generated because of the project’s success resulted in a virtual explosion of Heart Gallery groups across America, where over 100,000 foster children are waiting to be adopted. Today there are nearly 100 Heart Galleries throughout the United States.

Please head to Heart Gallery NYC site to watch the full video and make a donation, if you are able.

Kyle Alexander + Road Trip

Kyle Alexander recently ventured into the Southern California desert to capture the series of road trip images below. Shooting from sunrise to sunset, Kyle used the changing light as a narrative element, photographing his talent across a number of locations.  Kyle worked in both print and motion for this project and was able to conjure these timeless, youthful images in just one day.  Keep your eyes open for the upcoming release of the motion component of this project.
