Colin Pantall – All Quiet on the Home Front

Colin Pantall is a British photographer, curator and lecturer who lives and works in Bath, England. Today, we’re sharing some images from his work All Quiet on the Home Front, which chronicles the life of his daughter from 2005-2017. We know that you could never capture a life or a relationship using just images, but what Pantall has done here is show such meaningful snapshots of his daughter growing up and his relationship to her. It’s interesting how photography is so often about time, the split seconds that make up the ‘perfect’ shot, and yet here time is expanded, spanning 12 years; an entire life to date!

Such meaningful, beautiful images – we can’t get enough!

You can visit Pantall’s website here.

Karen Asher – Photography

Karen Asher is a Canadian photographer from Winnipeg, with an eye for interesting, evocative portraits. This series, called No Cause For Concern, chronicles the people of Winnipeg that she interacted with (both friends and strangers) between 2008 and 2010. We love how meaningful, strange and ultimately human these portraits are.

OK Go – Obsession Music Video

We’ve all fought with printers in our lives. The paper gets stuck, the drivers aren’t working – there’s always something that can go wrong (and it almost always happens on a deadline, strangely enough).

But what if printers could be our friends?

The band OK Go, who are known for their incredible music videos, have made friends with printers in this video, synchronising and choreographing 567 of them to create this incredibly spectacle you see below. And before you ask – all of the paper used was recycled, the proceeds of which were donated to Greenpeace.

Stefano Sauce Packaging

Now THIS is how you do a brand identity! We love this project by lg2 for Stefano sauce. From a fun logo, which draws directly from the man behind the sauce himself through to nifty applications onto T-Shirts and other collateral, we can see how lg2 really pushed themselves here to create a brand – not just a label design.

How could you NOT want this in your kitchen?

Camera Repair Centre – Print Campaign

Such great work from The Public House in Ireland for Camera Repair Centre. They’ve got a really simple message to deliver: Yesterday’s Cameras Restored For Today, which they brought to life with smart illustrations showing people using old cameras in the ways we use them today.

Spot on! And really funny too!
