DESIGNER OF THE DAY: SRULI RECHT
A piece of info about Sruli: a fashion designer, born in Jerusalem, Israel, a citizen of Australia currently based in Reykjavík, Iceland.
If this should not be fascinating enough, we can add that his clothing design is mostly influenced by Futurism, Cyberpunk, Russian Constructivism, Industrial design and Science-Fiction writing…
Certainly a one to have a closer look at in the future.
We definitely will:)
Bryant Austin is a photographer who snaps images of giant whales from hardly 10 feet away. In a quest to prevent the extinction of these gentle giants, he puts together life-sized portraits of these creatures — one which took over 200 hours to make and weighed a whopping 1,200 pounds — to help the public realize just what a whale really looks like.
At the top, a selection of his photographs — and above — his talk from TEDxSanJoseCA, during which he speaks on his process and the wonder of seeing a living, breathing whale up-close.
