The skies of Hong Kong by Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze
French photographer created and presented fascinating photo series of Hong Kong called ‘Vertical Horizont’. Romain’s interest in photography began during his period of working in Los Angeles and Tokyo, and subsequently blossomed into a passion after his arrival in Hong Kong. Stunned by its architectural “race to the sky”, he felt the need to use his camera to share his feelings about the city. The geometry of the urban environment and the vivid lives it shelters are the aspects of Hong Kong that inspire him most.

“Ongoing side project where I redesign all the logos of my favorite record labels in a retro style. Taking lots of Inspiration from the Batman Animated Series.”
I’ve always a had deep interest in the arts. I grew up writing music in rock bands and creating record artwork for those bands and friends as well. I enrolled in a design program at Columbia College Chicago and also started working as an animator in Chicago at Design Kitchen, which led me into the digital design world. I live outside of Chicago, in one of the western suburbs with my wife and kids.

After Lights Out
French photographer Julien Mauve presents his latest series “After Lights Out”. A great series of shots where a small source of light, in the middle of twilight darkened environments, catches the eye of the beholder.

Frank Ocean Goes Polaroid for Band of Outsiders
This story was copublished in partnership with The Daily Beast.
Frank Ocean has officially gone high fashion. He’s the face of Band of Outsiders’s Spring/ Summer 2013 campaign, which was released in a series of Polaroids on Wednesday. In the photographs, which were shot by the brand’s designer, Scott Sternberg, Ocean wears several looks from the collection.
In one picture, Ocean reclines in a tuxedo on a park bench in Downtown Los Angeles; in another he lies listlessly on a grass lawn — in a third, he sits in a poncho on a cement stoop. And Ocean looks good in the clothes: afterall, he wore a yellow Band of Outsiders suit onstage during his performance at the Grammys last month.
Ocean joins a long line of stars that have appeared in campaigns for the brand. The painter Ed Ruscha rode a motorcycle in a campaign last year – and Michelle Williams, Kirsten Dunst, Andrew Garfield and Amy Adams have all made cameos in Sternberg’s now-famous Polaroid campaigns in the past.
The Fall 2012 campaign featured Josh Brolin as a modern cowboy. At the time, Sternberg told us that there would only be two more Polaroid campaigns, and that afterwards he would publish a book of them. “It’s time to close the chapter on the Polaroids,” he told us. “It’s time to evolve.”
