In 2008 Bruce Davidson began exploring Los Angeles from the point of view of its exotic plant life. The arid climate, normally hostile to life, allows for an exceptional botanical diversity in L.A. County that reaches from the surrounding foothills and mountain wilderness to the Pacific Ocean. Davidson’s images reveal both the beauty and banality of urban existence in L.A., and the unexpected interactions between the natural and man-made environments

CHANEL’s fashion shows are always unexpected, but with the set of Karl Lagerfeld's Fall-Winter 2014/15 Prêt-à-Porter collection for the house, the designer seems to have finally outdone himself. The concept of the catwalk was born anew as the “CHANEL Shopping Center,” where models jostled with one another as they browsed shelves and placed items in their shopping trolleys. This book preserves the CHANEL Shopping Center in print, and is playfully styled as a mail order catalogue displaying all items seemingly for purchase.
Specifications - 94 pages. Paperback / softback. 18 x 26 cm. Language: English.
Kinfolk Issue Seventeen: The autumn edition of Kinfolk explores the relationships we have with our nearest and dearest, in all of their iterations. They ask some big questions: How is photography changing the way we construct our family narratives? Should we feel guilty about speaking to our barista more than our sister? And did our parents actually have any idea what they were doing? Our concept of family is deeply personal and forever evolving. No matter what kind of family we come from or the type of family we want to create ourselves, there’s no longer a universal concept of “normal.” There’s no ubiquitous manual to consult, rules to follow or boxes to check. Well, maybe just a few: love, understanding, empathy and support. And perhaps a little patience.

The creator of some of the most popular, enduring images of late 20th-century art, Keith Haring was also an iconic figure of the downtown New York scene in the 80's.
Christina Clausen's documentary offers an affectionate, deeply personal glimpse into Haring's life, from his early years growing up in a small, conservative Pennsylvania town to his heyday as a world-renowned artist, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Madonna, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Grace Jones, Yoko Ono, among many others.
Lacking a formal narrative, Andy Warhol's art house classic follows various residents of the Chelsea Hotel in 1966 New York City, presented in a split screen with a single audio track in conjunction with one side of screen.
