between 2010-13 Sabine Haubitz + Stefanie Zoche photographed old movie theatres in South India. you can understand the significance of the cinema experience in a country that is the world’s largest producer of films. no wonder the buildings dedicated to them are so rich & beautiful.
i know there are mountains upon mountains of imagery of Jackie Kennedy all over the internet, but i actually hadn’t seen these pics of her visit to India before, so i thought i’d share. she looks happy and colourful, accompanied by her sister Lee Radziwill. there’s even a video about her trip at the JFK Library. photos courtesy of Life.
Andrew Jacona spent a month in India in 2012, just exploring and pursuing his passion: photography. he took these photos with a Contax 645 camera using Kodak Portra 400 film. they are SO BEAUTIFUL that they actually make me psychically ache to visit India. Andrew lives in Sydney with his wife Paveena and their two kids. you can see more beautiful photos of Andrew’s family, and his travels, at his Flickr and portfolio website.
you know i’m a fan of wearing the pants, and if they’re designed specifically for comfort then they’re even better. the debut collection from MATTER, a socially motivated clothing line founded by Yvonne Suner and Renyung Ho after a trip across India, features “pants to see the world in”. they are made from Tussar silk cotton, with no zips to snag or clasps to break.
Oyyo is a studio based in Sweden founded by creative duo Lina Zedig and Marcus Åhrén, who marry Swedish design sensibilities with their nomadic moods and travelling adventures. the studio releases one to two new products per year to work up a core collection of textiles, pieces of furniture and accessories. their first collection is Oyyo No.1, a series of six original dhurries handwoven by a community of craftspeople near India’s Blue City, Jodhpur.

when i first saw joey lawrence‘s photography of holy men, tribes and people in ethiopia, india & indonesia, i thought that he must be a veteran photographer… possibly over 40, probably more like over 50 – with years of experience and travelling under his belt. turns out he was born in 1987 (which makes him 4 years younger than me) . wow. his portfolio includes impressive commercial projects for the advertising & music industries, but his personal photography is what really caught my eye. go check out his website for more photos as well as his blog for interesting travel stories & videos.
