Pierre Dal Corso photographs the strangest angles. The models are puppets in his lens. It’s remarkable.

Laura Laine has a remarkable rhythm to her drawings. They seem to meander into elegant shapes. I find them highly entertaining and quite lovely. I’m quite jealous really.

Miles Aldridge

If the world were pretty enough, I’d shoot on location all the time. But the world is just not being designed with aesthetics as a priority.

Miles Aldridge is a remarkable aesthetician. He has a new exhibition at Hamilton’s Gallery in London which I’m rather disappointed to not be seeing. This man brings a steady eye and a subtle worldview to the printed page. His portfolio site is a treasure trove. It’s a real pleasure.

Moritz Waldemeyer is a technical designer from East Germany with a penchant for LEDs, Crystals and Lasers. He’s built custom gadgetry for Swarovski, Chalayan, Arad & Troika. Moritz has created tables with built in LED games like Ping Pong and Roulette that look and act beautifully.

I’ve done some research into projected image interactive pieces which always look clunky but these built in LEDs are awesome. Mr Waldemeyer is already famous but I think his influence on mass communications is about to become gigantic. This man has managed to hack solutions to designer dreams and execute them with style. He also has a sense of humour. It’s a pity so much of his work is almost impossible to photograph well, however, this little reading list should educate you quite quickly on the state of the art.


This is a sampler of his work.

Here are 3 interesting photographers I’ve had the pleasure of talking to in the last few days. They are some of Toronto’s finest fashion image makers. Hopefully you’ll like them too.
