I went to Alaska for New Year with my friend Dan; we spent a week travelling North from Anchorage by rail, 4x4 & light aircraft. I took along my A7SII for the trip. Towards the end of 2016 I desired a trip disconnected from technology & work, somewhere 'into the wild' that I could disconnect somewhat from life in London. After our Tens (http://tens.co) campaign shoot in Mexico in December, I headed North to Vancouver and spent Christmas snowboarding. Alaska looked like the most logical stop after that for a week or so in the wilderness. The more (little) I researched and booked, I realised I should probably take a camera with me, but didn't want to be inconvenienced by all the gear I usually travel with (https://www.instagram.com/p/BOm8XjQDs02). The verse is from a book I found in our cabin (https://www.instagram.com/p/BO31pi9hiJp) that really resonated with the journey. Marshall was an environmental activist who wrote extensively about Alaska in the early 20th Century. Photos from the trip: http://instagram.com/getdeluxe --- The Problem of the Wilderness - Bob Marshall, 1930 It is well to reflect that the wilderness furnishes perhaps the best opportunity for pure esthetic enjoyment. This requires that beauty be observed as a unity, and that for the brief duration of any pure esthetic experience the cognition of the observed object must completely fill the spectator’s cosmos. There can be no extraneous thoughts—no question about the creator of the phenomenon, its structure, what it resembles or what vanity in the beholder it gratifies. “The purely esthetic observer has for the moment forgotten his own soul”, he has only one sensation left and that is exquisiteness. In the wilderness, with its entire freedom from the manifestations of human will, that perfect objectivity which is essential for pure esthetic rapture can probably be achieved more readily than among any other forms of beauty. --- http://getdeluxe.co @getdeluxe

Humans use technology to improve their lives, to forge connections, to create time that doesn’t exist, to replace real interactions. When we devise a second version of ourselves on social media, do we lose a piece of our true selves in the process? Do our digital connections threaten our real life relationships? What happens if the filtered characters we’ve imagined take on a life of their own? For many years Free People has told love stories -- we wanted to explore what our world could look like in the near future....

Headphones and 1080p recommended. Novae is a movie about an astronomical event that occurs during the last evolutionary stages of a massive star's life, whose dramatic and catastrophic death is marked by one final titanic explosion called supernova. By only using an aquarium, ink and water, this film is also an attempt to represent the giant with the small without any computed generated imagery. As a tribute to Kubrick or Nolan's filmography, Novae is a cosmic poem that want to introduce the viewer to the nebulae's infinite beauty. - Novae est un film qui conte l’histoire d’une supernova, à savoir la mort d’une étoile géante dans une explosion cataclysmique. En s’aidant uniquement d’encres et d’un aquarium, ce film se veut aussi une tentative de représentation du monde infiniment grand avec des phénomènes du quotidien, en s’interdisant d’utiliser des images de synthèse. Comme un hommage aux films du genre de Kubrick ou de Nolan, Novae est une ode et une introduction à la beauté infinie du monde des nébuleuses.

Urbanist and media artist JT Singh has captured the vibrance and massive scale of Shanghai’s skyline, streets, and infrastructure through a series of experimental projects viewed by millions (This is Shanghai, Walk in Shanghai, etc); hence, contributing greatly to the city's growing global status. With this new film, he turns to the Shanghai of its residents, the lives that revolve not around the city’s 4000 skyscrapers, but around the simpler ways of living, the local charm, and the familiar corner. Amid the chaos of millions of people living and working with one another, the rich textures and smells, the voices and faces young and old, and the signs of tradition and change dwell behind each door and around each corner. With JT's riveting visual storytelling, viewers experience a series of impressions around historic shikkumen neighbourhoods, which foster a network of real-life experiences, memories, and encounters with locals, which are the tender heart keeping the city alive and charming to live in. Shanghai’s iconic skyline is symbolic of its presence as a premier global city, but below the towers, the intimate, and human story that unfolds is what will always be part of the city’s core DNA. Forward by Lane Rick, an architect based in NYC About JT Singh JT Singh is an interdisciplinary media artist, urban futurist and world explorer, specializing in city-scale, global projects that blur the lines between technology, urbanism and story. It springs from his lifelong adventures and interest in socio-economic and environmental problems within cities that have led him to explore hundreds of urban areas worldwide with eyes wide open and through walking, walking and more walking. Currently involved in a variety of projects, including: exploring the future of urban transportation (www.cityofhumans.com), and advising numerous governments and global executives on city branding and smart city projects. JT is also collaborating with numerous tech startups focused on improving city life, from: urban farming, electric micro vehicles, solar energy and much more.

Apo Whang-Od is considered the world's last Mambabatok (hand-tap tattoo artist) from her generation. At the estimated age of 99, she is now passing the tattooing tradition to a new generation in her tribe including her grand-niece Grace. The tradition of this style of tattoo started as a symbol of pride for warriors and a marking of beauty for females in the Butbut tribe and has now taken a unique turn in their village, Kalinga, situated remotely in the mountains of the Luzon province in The Philippines. Stay tuned next week for a release of a Behind The Scenes film taking you through the making of the project. Credits: Director/Cinematographer/Editor: Brent Foster Cinematography: Pawel Dwulit and Preston Kanak Producer: Tammy Foster Opening Title/Credit Sequences: Reactiv Sound Design: Defacto Sound Fixer: Guill Ramos Driver: Rodney Ramos Subtitles: Erica Mills Music: Marmoset The Music Bed Graded with FilmConvert About the Project: While I'm Here | The Legacy Project is a series of videos that profile amazing everyday people, while they're still here. I decided to start this project after missing out on the chance to tell the story of a man from my hometown who dedicated his life to helping others. That man's name was Frank Dymock. For years, Frank opened his garage to the public and sharpened skates free of charge. He wouldn't accept a dime. He was an icon in the place where I grew up, and I always wanted to tell his story while he was still here. Regretfully, I let time pass, and Frank passed away before I had the chance to tell his story. This project is dedicated to him and to countless others who live selflessly and truly leave a legacy, forever impacting the lives of the people lucky enough to cross their paths.

Directed by Oliver Astrologo & Nils Astrologo - fb.com/oliver.astrologo Much has been made about the wonders of Venice, but few ever venture deep enough across its less touristy, yet still historical hidden places. Beyond hundreds of canals and a diverse architectural style, a secret facet of Venetian life lives on, in which the journey of hand crafting gondola wooden oars and loomed fabrics remains rooted in ancient folk traditions. This short film uncovers the secrets that have been handed down from father to son and projects you to the Venice that existed 500 years ago, immersing you in the extraordinary craftsmen’s veiled workshops that belong to a long lost era. This project has been produced in partnership with René Caovilla, the master Venetian shoemaker who has overwhelmed the world with his creations. This video is a homage to the city of Venice on behalf of René Caovilla - www.renecaovilla.com Flickr album: flic.kr/s/aHskBsBgNV Filmed by Tommaso Cassinis | Nils Astrologo | Oliver Astrologo Production assistant Valeria D’Ovidio Location Manager Matteo Gottardis Music produced by ZerOKilled Music Inc. - www.zerokilledmusic.com Track ”Dream Journey" written by Moon Device Sound Design by Peter Breaker Drone Footage licensed from third parties owners.
