It is interesting to note that protesters held images by Gideon Mendel from the ‘Drowning World’ series he has made over the…

Apocalyptic Sublime @davidmaisel1

“We had dreamed of building cities, fields of glittering towers, urban fantasies meant to house our hopes of progress; now we seek our dismantled landscapes, abandoned, collapsing on themselves. Rather than creating the next utopia, we uncover the vestiges of failed attempts, the evidence of obliteration” (Maisel, 2013: 124). This is a very poetic way…

Lecture on Ecological Economics @rethinkecon NL

I have been extremely honoured to be invited to the Erasmus University Rotterdam in the Netherlands to join a deep discussion on sustainability organized by Rethinking Economics association. The Rethinking Economics initiative is a unique forum, which emerged out of “disillusionment with the education” that was given to students in economics departments. It started from…

Photo Book Design

Now that our ‘Ecosystems’ album has been published and launched it would be wise to look back at the long and tricky process of its design, photography and final compilation to see which lessons can be learned from it. It should be said right at the start that this project would never have materialized in…

Taking place within a stone’s throw from the Vatican, this year’s meeting is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Club and is revisiting the historic…

Ship tracking @MarineTraffic

It has been absolutely nerve-wracking to watch the tsunamis unfolding in South-East Asia recently for a very simple reason that 500 first limited edition copies of our “ECOSYSTEMS” album are currently aboard a ship travelling to the UK. Today, Monday 8 October 2018, the ship has reached Colombo in Sri Lanka and is carrying on…
