seeing my work as a designer might tell you a thing or two about me, but maybe seeing what i love and my inspirations, you will understand where im coming from. if you like what you see here, we can go for coffee.

Jeppe Hein - Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear (2007)“OBJECTS IN THE MIRROR ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR” shines behind a two-way mirror, merging the text with images of the visitors and the surrounding space. The text references the warning sometimes found on car side-view mirrors, alerting the viewer to the optical illusion of the altered field of view. The oversized scale of the phrase juxtaposed with the two-way mirror dares the viewer to take a closer look at what he or she sees, and to question the implications of the text in the apparent closeness of the reflected objects.

Frédéric de Woelmont : The Afar - Ethiopia (previously posted here)

The Afar, nomads and pastoralists, live in the “Afar triangle” (or Danakil) in the Horn of Africa, now straddling the territories of three countries: Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti. Breeders of goats, sheep, camels and cattle, the Afar also ensured once the caravan transportation on behalf of Yemeni merchants between the Ethiopian highlands and the Red Sea. Long Islamized (Sunni), they remain imbued with traditional animist beliefs and reminiscences of ancient Egypt.

[…] Initiated in November 2010, the Afar project is now coming close to its end. It has been a slow motion project made up of patience and impregnation. The photographer made four journeys, spending several months in immersion in the Afar community, sharing their life in the settlements. 

[…] According to the photographer, it is “an attempt at portraying the beauty and majesty, as well as preserving the memory of the Afar people and of this region of the world where human communities continue to live according to their ancient cultures and traditions in a pristine natural environment”. Bearing witness, helping understand and inspire action, if possible, but also presenting Africa through lenses radically different than the ‘evils’ (wars, epidemics, famines, poverty…) or some exotic and simplistic clichés through which she tends to be caricatured.
