  • THE CREATOR CLASS - ATIBA JEFFERSON

    Atiba Jefferson is one of the best photographers in skateboarding, period. He's maintained the perfect equilibrium between structure and spontaneity. “Both are so different but both will keep you creatively pushed." Last month Jefferson opened "Never Work", his premier gallery exhibition in Toronto, and an homage to skateboarding culture. In this episode of The Creator Class, we join Jefferson in the gallery at FREE Space as he deconstructs the curation process behind the exhibition.

  • THE OLD NEW WORLD

    By combining photographs from the past with technology from today, Moscow-based photographer and animator Alexey Zakharov has created an incredible animation short titled "The Old New World." For the four-minute film, Zakharov took photos of New York, Boston, Washington, Detroit, Washington D.C. and Baltimore captured between 1900 and 1940 and animated them into a wonderful film. There’s no information on how exactly the process was done, but judging from his past projects, it looks as though he used the images as references for 3D models, then overlaid the images as textures to effectively create an entire 3D world from still images. However it was done, the result is absolutely incredible, as you can see for yourself, below.

  • PHOTOGRAPHERS IN FOCUS: DAIDO MORIYAMA

    Japan's legendary street photographer Daido Moriyama has gained an international cult following for his uncompromising, grainy black-and-white images of Tokyo’s bustling streets. Going against the grain of tradition in photography, his high-contrast, distorted imagery and raw-verging-on-sordid content has influenced the work of countless photographers. The disintegrating traditions and hyper-modernization of post-war Japan echo through the output of the 77-year old artist, photographer and documentarian. A new documentary from Italian director Andrea Cossu delves into the world of the master photographer’s often-overlooked color works. Shot mostly on commission for magazines between the late 1960s through to the early 1980s — from design and photography publications to Playboy — the saturated snaps capture an entirely different view of the vibrant Japanese metropolis.

  • TOKYO AT NIGHT

    One thing that sets the city of Tokyo apart from the rest of the world is how the light illuminates the city at night. Throughout the years, this dreamlike dystopian atmosphere has been captured in paintings, photographs, film and animation, especially by the likes of Katsuhiro Otomo and Hayao Miyazaki, among others. Inspired by these surrealist scenes, self-taught photographer Masashi Wakui wanders the streets at night with high-performing compact cameras like the RX100 and Ricoh GR to capture compositions of nighttime cityscapes and transform them with unique coloring effects to create an atmospheric tone. Check out Masashi's amazing Flickr-stream HERE.
