A Dark Youth Summer in Russia

Spotted: the work of Russian photography duo Dark Youth today on Platform (a London-based online mag). This collection of shots by Sasha Borodinova & Leyla Masharipova are an ode to a different kind of summer. Beaches and keggers are replaced by lush forests and reckless abandon. via Platform: They say being young is exhausting and they...

Assouline Flagship in Vegas

Luxury art publisher Assouline opened their first flagship store in Las Vegas. Here’s a sneak peek into this beautifully merchandised and designed store. I love the lux living room decor and strict attention to detail, like the vintage books and original artwork strategically placed throughout the space. Absolutely worth a visit or three.

American Families via California

I have long admired the work of California-based fine art photographer Roxann Arwen Mills. I know quite a bit about her creative process after being friends for nearly eight years, and never tire of checking out what she’s working on.  Mills manages to give the viewer a close-but-not-too-close glimpse at each of her subjects, especially...

Catalog Photo Redux

I am in love with this personal and creative approach to marketing. European clothing brand Edwin invites different photographers to interpret each of their seasonal collections.  The most recent SS11 release is just as beautiful as past iterations with work by photographer Benjamin Robinson*.  Although I do love The Selby,  I prefer Robinson’s approach to...

Like legos for grown-ups, these clever and modern modular pieces offer a multitude of decorative options for your home or office. ModulA.R.T. was created by Donald Rattner in order to represent a new way to create, collect and think about contemporary art. The goal of A.R.T is to “make high quality, original art more accessible...

RIP Recession

Obviously The Recession isn’t over yet, but our fingers are globally crossed. Indeed. Meanwhile, photographer Brian Ulrich has been  shooting abandoned and defeated shopping malls, stores and pretty much anything formerly retail for the past seven years. Much of this time frame overlapped nicely with our current economic climate. Above are selected shots from this...

Oddities in Brooklyn

The clean, minimalist design of this site highlights the dozens of beautiful articles at INDEX in Brooklyn. INDEX is “an evolving catalogue of materials and articles, some unique and some ordinary, but all exceptional in their purpose, character and origin.”  Items are for display, sale and rental.

Francesca in Brooklyn

I have more film in my fridge than food. Lovely photographs by film-based photographer Francesca Tallone. Surface Magazine Avant Guardian winner in 2006, Francesca now shoots regularly for art-focused fashion mags like Antler. Most recently she participated in Silent Noise, a one-night art auction in Brooklyn on June 3rd, 2010. It’s fun to watch the...

Koolhaas in Seattle

I received an email from a curious traveler (thanks, D) this afternoon suggesting Detangle readers check out the Seattle Public Library next time we’re in the northwest. The angular-yet-peaceful space was designed by Rem Koolhaas. The famed Dutch architect just this week spoke at the new Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture & Design in Moscow...
