PARIS POETRY

Film by 
Paris. The only city that’s different every time you’re visiting it. Tried to pack my feelings about it in few minutes. Poetry of Paris streets through my lens. The visual poem.

MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU

May the 4th be with you — here are some new goodies to celebrate. Photographer Annie Leibovitz is known for her portraits of celebrities, and nothing is more famous these days than Star Wars. In these gorgeous photos for Vanity Fair’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens issue, there are also a few revelations about what we might be seeing in the upcoming film. As we are also reporting, we are getting our first look (and a confirmation) of Adam Driver as the evil Kylo Ren (who will also be wielding that three-pronged light saber). Further, Lupita Nyong’o‘s CGI character Maz Kanata seems to (as far as the rogue’s gallery seems to suggest) playing some kind of a pirate. Also, check out the dashing Poe Dameron (Oscar Issac), as well as some great photos of JJ Abrams directing on the set, as well as a portrait of the Star Wars brain trust (Abrams, producer Kathleen Kennedy, compose John Williams, co-writer Lawrence Kasdan). And of course, the cover gives us another look at Han and Chewie, because feels (and that lil BB-8!) Vanity Fair also has a featurette of the cover shoot over on their site.

From November 7th to 9th, 8000 glowing balloons will line a 15km portion of the city, where the Berlin Wall once stood. The installation entitled ‘Lightgrenze,’or ‘Border of Light,’ by bauderfilm and WHITE  commemorates the 25th anniversary of the fall of what served as the dividing line between East and West for so many years. This glorious light display was created by artist Christopher Bauder and filmmaker Marc Bauder.  Along the course of its 15km, the installation passes such famous sites asCheckpoint Charlie, which once served as the most popular crossing point between East and West Germany. You can follow the the installation’s path in the video below. The 15-kilometer (or 9.3-mile) Lightgrenze, or Light Frontier, from the Wall Memorial to the Brandenburg Gate, will also include large-screen projections of historical film collages, along with guided tours and public exhibits. As the sun sets on Nov. 9, Berliners will be invited to attach personal messages to the balloons and release them into the night sky and as the released balloons sail above, the Staatskapelle Berlin, conducted by Daniel Barenboim, will perform the final movement of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, the rousing “Ode to Joy,” at the Brandenburg Gate. By using such visually striking reminders, the installation forces us to think back on those days, and ponder just how intrusive this barrier was on the people of Berlin. Families and friends were divided as their city served as the ideological battle ground for two world superpowers. The glowing balloons remind us of the protestors who lit candles during protests in those dark days…

RICKY AND HIS MAGICAL CREATIONS

This is a story of Ricky Syers, an artist who makes marionettes based on real people. He started out playing music in Washington Square Park and just brought a marionette for fun. He later realized people wanted to see the marionettes more than watch him play the drums. This is truly a unique story that is heartwarming.  Ive also included another clip of one of Ricky’s marionettes performing.

HOLOGRAM by MCQUEEN

Alexander McQueen had imagination and vision that is unsurpassed in the fashion world.  As shown here in this amazing finale to his F/W collection in 2006, he presents an illusion of a ghostly Kate Moss in a glass pyramid that was truly a spectacle for the eyes.
