The Mysterious World of Russian Photographer, Andrew Pashis

Erotica // Thursday, June 11, 2015
Ever since we saw the work of Russian photographer Andrew Pashis' work in Taschen's fantastic "The Erotic Photography 2", we have been on a mission to learn more about the man. And you know what? There isn't much out there! He is a mystery to us, and besides the photo spread you see above, or search has yielded minimal results. What we have found is a bizarre collection of nudes, summer time fun, and almost hostile vibes. 

Jazz Pioneer and Legend Ornette Coleman Passes Away

Music // Thursday, June 11, 2015
I was saddened to learn the news this morning of the passing of free jazz pioneer and legend Ornette Coleman. He was in my opinion one of the single most important figures in the brave exploration of sound and new music. I first heard his beautiful music in high school as a young punk. And honestly, It changed me forever. It opened me up to hearing in a totally new way and has led to many other creative paths in art and music...

Music // Thursday, June 11, 2015
If you didn't get a chance to visit Björk's retrospective/introspective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art these past few months, the centerpiece of the show was the MoMA-commissioned music video for Björk's "Black Lake" track directed by the great Andrew Thomas Huang. Both the epic opus of her new LP, Vulnicura that seems to speak of her split with Matthew Barney, this is also the absolute highlight of the exhibition. The show was difficult for some, even us who had Björk on the cover of our April 2015 issue, but this video experience at MoMA was undeniable. Now you can watch...

Germaine Krull (Wilda-Poznań, East Prussia [after 1919: Poland], 1897-Wetzlar, Germany, 1985) is at once one of the best-known figures in the history of photography, by virtue of her role in the avant-garde's from 1920 to 1940, and a pioneer of modern photojournalism.
