the road is home - page 11 earlier this year we flew to melbourne to shoot for a hairstylist friend, maria. on the drive to the airport we passed the apartment we used to live in, right in the heart of the city. i couldn’t help it, a part of me ached for those times of wild freedom and youth. but the feeling was more a mourning of time passing than anything, those times were ugly and life now is just as it should be. we had dinner with some of the team in a popular melbourne restaurant in the city. it was loud, crowded and dark and everyone who passed cooed at alba. an elderly lady offered to hold her while we ate and watching alba brought a glow to her eyes. i walked to the windows and showed her, ‘this is the city where mama and papa first met and lived’. it was alba’s first time in a hotel room. after a family shower we all snuggled up in the big, fresh bed and fell asleep. we flew home the same night and drove from the airport back to our cold, familiar house at 3am.
Studded Hearts Planet Blue’s lastest fall campaign They produce the best lookbooks and quite often too! 212/BLOG - Fusing art and progressive fashion culture™ This Sunday a reconstructed bit of animation rarely seen, tremendously entertaining, and historically significant will screen at BAM. The Adventures of Prince Achmed, by pioneering, avant-garde, and often overlooked German filmmaker and female artist Lotte Reiniger, employs silhouetted black cardboard cutouts on illuminated glass to craft this dreamlike homage to The Arabian Nights. Developed using stop animation and originally released in 1926, this special closing day event, hosted by BAMcinemaFest, has enlisted two founding members of the Irish ambient rock band 3epkano's and avant-garde cellist Erik Friedlander to arrange and perform a new score as they find their muse in the oldest surviving animated feature film to date. More than eighty years later, what's most surprising about The Adventures of Prince Achmed is still how extraordinarily beautiful it is. Just as it must have been for viewers back in 1926.
Ruby Press » When we find something we love, we want to tell everyone! Hello friends! We’re sorry to say that for now we must take a hiatus from the Ruby Press blog. We started this blog back in 2008 and it has been instrumental in the meeting of many dear friends and making of many wonderful connections. We still love blogging- don’t get us wrong!- but we are just so busy with our agency work and in the small amount of free time I have as a business owner and mother, I have been working on (and self-publishing) a book, which is due out this June.
Historical Indulgences "Until the handkerchief of history covers us with its Times New Roman black and white post script..." This blog is a collection of vernacular photography and ephemera focused mainly within the curious and often misunderstood realm of 19th century America. I have a soft spot for all things silly, antiquated, macabre, and grotesque. The content is from a variety of collections; public, academic, and private. In addition, there's an occasional emphasis on Ulysses S Grant and the Civil War, as well.

How Tesla's 1898 Patent Changed the World » Teleautomaton On a rainy September day in 1898 Nikola Tesla presented at Madison Square Garden’s first Electrical Exhibition a new invention that he called a “teleautomaton”. The invention was the first ever radio controlled device in the form of a miniature boat. He had two devices one that could be remote controlled above water and another that had a hidden loop antenna and could be controlled under water. The most significant ideas however were concealed and not even explained in his patent for fear that they would be stolen like so many of his other inventions.

Dudu von Thielmann You have seen quite a lot in your life. Where did you lust for travel come from? I was born in Hopfen in Bavaria, close to Munich. At the age of 21 I married my husband who I barely knew at that time. In order to change this unfamiliarity we decided to drive with a Volkswagen from Munich to Beirut for six weeks. Vogue Soldier: Melanie Huynh It seems like most of the people I intend to consider some figure of fashion to be inspired from are Vogue employees better known as the "Vogue Soldiers". Being one of the best high fashion magazines known for its editorial, fashion forward spreads along with great journalistic pieces; it is definitely a staple for any fashionista. This time at least, I lay testament to an Asian (or at least half of one), Melanie Huynh a Vietnamese-French Voguette working at Paris Vogue. Mélanie works as an assistant stylist at Paris Vogue under the tutelage of the famed Carine Roitfeld (editor-in-chief). It seems like a requirement not only to be fashionable but beautiful at the same time! Note that on the picture above, Mélanie is actually pregnant.
