CREATURES OF THE SEA BY GUNDULA BLUMI

Gundula recently shot this personal series Creatures by the Sea. To most, these are branches and rocks that live by the water, but Gundula sees these creatures in a different light, capturing their beauty in her signature style, imbued with a sense of calm.


NEW ARTIST - ABDULLA ELMAZ

We are proud to announce that we are now representing artist Abdulla Elmaz. Abdulla beautifully captures raw emotion through his storytelling. His dreamlike lighting and interesting use of positive and negative space, creates a surreal world, leaving a powerful impact on all who view his work.



NHS HEROES PHOTOGRAPHED BY CHARLIE SURBEY

Finding creative inspiration during the recent lockdown has been somewhat a challenge. That said, just watching the news and hearing stories about the amazing carers working in the NHS was enough inspiration for Charlie to document some of the doctors and nurses as part of an ongoing series “NHS Heroes”. 

The first image is of a nurse called Kari who usually works as an OPD in theatre but has been deployed to work in ICU with critical patients. Thank you so much Kari and everyone else in the NHS for being so brave and doing such amazing work.


ASICS CAMPAIGN SHOT BY MARC HAYDEN

Marc was commissioned to shoot a global ASICS campaign; the idea behind “Run Your Rhythm” was to communicate the bounciness of the new Novablast trainers.

The project as a whole was extremely intricate as the environment for both the runners and the product was that of a virtual vinyl record, which required a great deal of precision with angles and perspectives. The shoot involved action and still life photography that worked seamlessly together to create these amazing results.



COLOUR IS NO CRIME BY HELENA RAVENNE

In light of recent events, Helena has created this illustration “Color Is No Crime”. Since the lockdown began, she has been working on a variety of personal projects but this seems the most relevant and poignant.


SIMON DANAHER’S FILM WORK FOR CARTIER

Simon Danaher’s work for Cartier continues; he most recently created these beautiful motion pieces for the launch of Les Épures de Parfum, a new trio of luxury fragrances celebrating “the original resonance and beauty of living nature”. Pur Magnolia, Pur Muguet and Pur Kinkan were developed by Cartier house perfumer Mathilde Laurent.


THE PERFECT PICTURE OF SOCIAL DISTANCING

Shot by Paul Thompson, this image seems more relevant than ever. With social distancing being so prevalent, the workplace could look like this for a while to come as we all adjust to this new way of living.



PLAY - A PERSONAL SERIES BY PAUL THOMPSON

Play is a photographic study of London’s free outdoor Table Tennis tables, and the latest project by Paul Thompson

Paul has been obsessively documenting human-made objects in the natural environment, almost as still-life settings and formal studies of the objects we pass everyday,  but that are yet largely ignored. This is also evident in Paul’s previous works such as Navigate which surveyed the many and varied navigation markers dotted round Britain’s coastline.

Despite a resurgence in the popularity of table tennis, and the growing number of free outdoor tables popping up across London,  Play celebrates these forms in all their isolated beauty - as uniquely individual objects of art within the public landscape.

Paul shot each table on large format film over 2 years, with only one exposure made at each location, when the neighbourhood was at its most quiet. Combined with a considered and consistent style, this produces a surreal quality. The pictures are stark, honest and easy to get lost in. They hint at the possibility of connection, whilst lonely in their own world…

ILLUSTRATION, COLLABORATION, ISOLATION

Our artists have been making the most of this time in isolation by creating and producing new work. Marc Hayden shot these new Nike Air Max trainers in his home studio; collaborating with illustrator Ben Bates who added the artwork to give them the wow factor.



IN THIS TOGETHER

It’s the end of the week and as the weekend draws near,
The sky is blue and the air is clear

Our planet is healing from years of pollution and destruction,
Reminding us all of the simple things one needs to function

The whole world is in this, we wear the same shoes
From Japan to Italy, the UK to Peru

To uplift the mood and inspire creativity,
We’ll be sharing content full of positivity

It’s small businesses like us that need the support,
We’re still working hard and holding the fort

Our photographers are able to shoot projects from home,
They’ve all their equipment to get in the zone

Or if preferred, there’s illustration and CGI,
That can be done too in the blink of an eye

We may be working from home, but we’re still about
If there’s anything you need, just give us a shout

This is only temporary, it won’t last forever
For now enjoy the moment, we are in this together.

ILLUSTRATION BY HELENA RAVENNE
