Where has LookSeeNow been?

As you may have noticed LookSeeNow hasn't been updated over the past week. Whilst this hiatus continues - for only a short while longer - I give you a few links to other places you can find me or things which I've recently found interesting, which you may not have read yet. 


Where I have been:

Reviewing Shadow Catchers: Camera-less Photography at the V&A for Phaidon.com

Reviewing London Street Photography at the Museum of London for Phaidon.com

I've also updated the AllyAsh + LookSeeNow Tumblr.


What I have seen that you should see too:

Photographic collages by Damien Blottierre for Dazed & Confused (December 2010)

Detroit's Beautiful, Horrible Decline by Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre /via Time.com

More abandoned theatres on Desolate Metropolis

The beautiful photography and gluten-free recipes on Aran Goyoaga's blog Cannelle et Vanille

Director Philip Bloom's addictive time-lapse films, particularly Room with a view, Sky, and the details in Salton Sea Beach.

The shoes, coats and soundtrack of the Burberry AW 2011 show at London Fashion Week and the dresses at the Gucci AW 2011 show at Milan Fashion Week.


And finally...

Arne Jacobsen's Room 606 arrived from the warehouse this morning for me; I'm very happy about that.


Back soon in full force as this week alone is all booked up with things to do and people to see.

The ten dimensions of Rosie and Thomas Wylde

Andallusion

March Vogue Cover Star, Face of Burberry, Victoria's Secret Angel, Transformers 3 Actress, is there no end to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's talents?  (can I call them talents?)

She's managed to get in with some of the most forward-thinking people in the fashion industry and carved a name out for herself as one of 'fashion's most influential people' - according to The Evening Standard's 2010 list, The 1000.

Robin Hood: good things come to those who wait


On Friday night, we sat down to watch Robin Hood, not the Kenvin Costner version sadly, but the 2010 remake with Russell Crowe taking the role of the the aforementioned Robin Hood and fellow Australian Cate Blanchett as love interest, Maid Marion.

The film itself, breaks no boundaries, and Crowe's accent is, as I'm sure you've already heard, something that I hope will be sent to depths of Hollywood and never resurrected again.  But it is not the film that I want to focus on.  It is the end titles.

QuickLook: Lumas Valentine's 10% off

Michael Wissing, Aurum II (2005/2010)

Another little Valentine's announcement: Lumas are offering 10% off all exhibits at their London Gallery until 14th February 2011.

So replace those chocolates and flowers with some of the beautiful prints and photographs from Lumas.

LookSeeNow featured the opening of the London Lumas Galllery on Conduit Street in October 2010 as - the affordable part of - affordable and not so affordable art.

QuickLook: We make the perfect pear


For those who love to give gifts that bit of DIY flare, Kathleen at Twig & Thistle - the download and do it yourself blog - has designed these great, print yourself, stickers.

From you're the apple of my eye, to I'm going bananas over you, you are sure to find a design suitable for any relationship or fruit preference.

And even if you're not one for surrendering to the valentine's day charade (a bit like me) you can appreciate the great idea nevertheless.

Are we there yet?


The design of Rosie Whitehouse's Are we there yet? Travels with my frontline family is a perfect balance of detail and simplicity.  The white background acts as a simple base to on which snapshots of Whitehouse and her family's time in the Balkans are placed.  The finished effect resembles the many layers of history, people, cultures and nationalities at play in the Balkans and covered in the book.
