Dom Pérignon by David Lynch Spending an afternoon with David Lynch in the penthouse of the Chateau Marmont isn't necessarily an everyday occurrence—the filmmaker, known for his surrealistic visions, actually admits that he rarely leaves the house if he doesn't have to. As the son of a forester, Lynch grew up spending time with his father in their woodshop, and now enjoys time at home creating his own art, photography and sound studios. Lynch did venture out recently to the home of his friend, special effects designer Gary D’Amico, to collaborate on a bottle and package design project for Dom Pérignon.

Dass started her project, Humanae, in April 2012, by photographing some of her Brazilian family members. “Humanae is a pursuit for highlighting our true color, rather than the untrue red, yellow, black, and white,” says Dass, who is the “granddaughter of a ‘black’ and ‘native’ Brazilian and the daughter of a ‘black’ father adopted by a ‘white’ family.” Each individual portrait is pretty monochromatic. Diversity is important to Bass, and not just for skin tone. See more here.
