Rad Hourani

Nació en Jordania aunque creció en Montreal, y ahora divide su tiempo, como todo exitoso diseñador que se precie, entre dos de las capitales de la moda: París y Nueva York.
Seguramente lo que más me llamó la atención de los brillantes diseños de Rad Hourani, fueron sus líneas, que crean geométricas siluetas en las que cada pliegue, está repleto de un estudiado equilibrio y perfección. Después, cuando indagué un poco más en el acercamiento de este joven diseñador a la moda, me capturó su visión de ésta: "quiero diseñar ropa que pueda llevarse en cualquier lugar, por cualquier persona y en cualquier momento. Mi colección pretende ser unisex. Quiero llegar a personas que no se definan como hombres o mujeres, sino que vayan más allá de este criterio demográfico clásico".
Creo que sin duda, por mucho que haya inventado, el ser humano jamás deja de crear cosas nuevas, y es precisamente esta capacidad la que demuestra cada día, que estamos vivos.

He was born in Jordan but later moved to Montreal, and know, as every successful designer, divides his time between two of the world's fashion capitals: Paris and New York.
Probably, what i most liked about his brilliant designs, were his lines, which create geometrical silhouettes in which each fold, is totally balanced with the rest. After doing a little research, i found out the approach of this young designer to fashion, and i liked his designs even more: "i want to design clothes that can be worn anywhere by anyone anytime. My collection is intended as unisex. I hope to reach people who do not define themselves primarily as men or women, who go beyond the classical demographical criteria".
I think all this proofs that althought there's a lot that's been invented already, human being never refuse to continue creting, and it is that capacity the one that demonstrates each day, that we're alive.

Porque todos somos un poco de muchas cosas, y un mucho de nada... Estas son algunas de las cosas que me han estado gustando últimamente. Desde que descubrí la tienda de decoración Fleux en París, y vi una preciosa estantería en forma de caballo (aunque suene extraño), no he podido parar de pensar que el día que tenga mi propia mi casa para decorar como es debido, la llenaré de objetos diferentes y poco convencionales.
Supongo que también es bastante probable que hasta que llegue ese momento, mi gusto estético haya evolucionado hacia otra cosa, pero lo que si que tengo claro, es que me niego a convertirme en una de esas personas sin ningún criterio propio que se compran lo más caro de la tienda, les guste o no, para demostrar su nivel económico.

Because we all are a bit of many things, but a many of nothing... This are some of the things i've been liking lately. Since i discovered the decoration store Fleux in Paris and i saw a gorgeous shelf in a horse shape (althought it may sound kind of weird), i couldn't stop thinking about how, when i have a serious opportunity of decorating my own place, i will be filling it up with lots of curious stuff, nothing conventional.
I'm aware that my taste will probably change until i have that shot, but i totally refuse to become one of those folks that just buys things because they're expensive, and not because they really like it.


Os dejo también algunas cositas que me he comprado últimamente, usando como excusa la llegada de la primavera:

This story beggings like many others: On top of the hill there was a big and misterious house, where a very powerfull man lived. The house had a balcony from where he could watch the entire city every morning...

Breath

"Breath" es el nombre de este proyecto de Tomohide Ikeya, y la verdad que dudo que algo tan intangible y etéreo como es "respirar", pueda materializarse de forma más auténtica en una fotografía.
Tomohide, sorprendentemente, trabajó siete años como chef de un restaurante en Italia, hasta que en el año 2000 decidió meterse de lleno en la fotografía.
Lo cierto es que no se como se le daría la cocina, pero en la fotografía le avalan algunos de los premios internacionales más importantes. Yo desde luego hacía tiempo que no veía unas fotografías tan repletas de vida y expresividad.

Tomohide Ikeya was born in Japan. Before he started his career as a photographer assistant in 2000, he has been working as a Chef in an Italian restaurant. He began working as a freelance photographer from 2002. Ikeya’s first water series, ”WAVE” has been awarded 1st place in the “Advertising (self promotion)” category at the International Photography Award in 2007, followed by many other awards like the Prix de la Photography Paris.
The truth is i don't know how her abilities as a chef were like, but i can't remember seeing in a while such an deep, full of expression work, for a long time.
