Nathan over at Intercity got in touch today with some news about a new exhibition by Converse.

As part of the global PRODUCT RED project and in association with the Dondi White Foundation, “Converse have approached 100 artists, each to design a shoe. The project has just launched in the UK with an exhibition of some of the original artist shoes currently at Size? sneaker store in Carnaby Street. Some artists hand-painted their shoes as references for the production versions – and both instances of these (original and production shoes) are currently being shown at the exhibition.

Artists and designers include both established names and fresh talent – the likes of Jeremyville, Ben Drury, Chris Bettig, Lupe Fiasco, Grandpeople, Jeff Hamada, Gary Hume, Rostarr, and many more…”

I love this fashion portrait by Photographer Mike Schreiber. He has the gift of making anyone real.

If you meet Mike in person you can immediately tell he has a way with people. He is friendly, approachable and likeable. This is exactly how his pictures show his subjects. Even celebrities feel like they are just one of us.

Look through his website and you will see some familiar faces mixed in with those you’re sure you met just the other night.

His style makes any person feel familiar and that is what makes his photography… his; old school style.

Mark Jenkins does brilliant street and nature installations. The shot of the posed donkey street performer made me laugh – it’s an actual statue, not a guy in a suit. Quite amazing that you can get people to donate money to a statue of a man painted gold, wearing a donkey mask… See the video here.
