Iconication | Anatol Kotte

Not just a façade: what turns a photograph into an icon?
Rihanna, John Turturro, Angela Merkel, Martin Kippenberger, Mario Draghi, and Miss Piggy share two things: they are world famous, and they have all stood in front of the camera of Anatol Kotte. His unique portrait photographs have featured in publications such as Time, Die Zeit, Stern, or L’Uomo Vogue. But what makes Kotte’s photographs special? At first glance they are cool and distant, and at second glance emotional and dramatic. They permit those being portrayed to discover very different aspects of themselves. Kotte approaches them candidly, seeks a special gaze, an unexpected demeanor or environment—preferably in black and white, always moving. The portraits are also interspersed with surprising views of cities and landscapes. The world and individuals become icons, and we can take a very new look at them.

Face Off | Sean Archer

Face Off – Exclusive Interview with Sean Archer Photography
Have you seen the movie Face Off, with John Travolta and Nicholas Cage? Do you remember the name of one of the lead characters? Yeah, Sean Archer! Did you know he’s real? Did you know he’s a photographer? Did you know he’s an amazing photographer?
Well, he’s not THAT real, but portrait photographer, Stanislav Puchkovsky, created Sean Archer Photography.
He’s big on 500px and pretty much all over the world, so why not learning from him, right?

Classical Cocktails – Drinks with a Renaissance Twist

Classical Cocktails – Drinks with a Renaissance Twist
by Greg Stroube

A Bloody Mary just seems more fun with over-the-top garnishes – vegetables and herbs billowing out like a bouquet of flowers. That’s how the idea for Classical Cocktails began. How would an Old Master style a Sangria, how would Vermeer paint a Lime Ricky?
