Jim Sanborn

These images were produced by American artist Jim Sanborn using large format, light projection directly onto different landscapes. All of the pieces were photographed at night using long exposures, sometimes lit with searchlights. The landforms themselves are quite large, and as such required the projector and camera to be, about ½ mile away from the subject landscape.

Outliers, Vol. I: Iceland

This October, a small group of filmmakers, photographers and musicians are setting out on a journey to explore the remote countryside of Iceland and document our experiences with the landscape, residents and traditions we encounter. The end result, a beautifully packaged box set of the film and companion soundtrack, will be released to backers of the project as a physical artifact of the unique and awe-inspiring experience.

The project — anchored by internationally renowned photographers Tim Navis + Kim Høltermand and aided by film collective Scenic and composer Deru — will be unique in its improvisational spirit.

Matthew Donaldson

Matthew Donaldson is a director and photographer whose career began by assisting Norman Parkinson, Lord Snowdon and Terence Donovan. With this wealth of experience, Matthew went freelance and soon had his first commercial studio set up in Charlotte Street, London. Working internationally, continuously in demand, and notoriously shooting some form of image every day, Matthew is a highly respected and very prolific fashion and beauty photographer. His clean crisp style has lent itself to many campaigns for clients including Sony, Harrods, Sony Ericsson, Kvadrat, Swarovski, Coca Cola and The Macallan.

The short film above is a recent collaboration between Matthew, internationally renowned hairstylist Sam McKnight, make-up artist Val Garland and music by Zero 7. As his model daughter Lily spins 360 degrees, her hair buffeted by four wind machines, Donaldson stretches two seconds into two hypnotic minutes, capturing every exquisite movement at 1,000 frames per second.

Vivian Maier Archive

The work of Vivian Maier, a street photographer from the 1950s – 1990s, was discovered at an auction in Chicago. The discovery includes over 100,000 medium format negatives, thousands of prints, and 20-30,000 undeveloped negatives. John Maloof, who owns approximately 90-95% of the work bought at auction, was inspired by Maier’s work to take up street photography himself, who has taken on the mantle of continuing to photograph the streets and people of Chicago.
