Kickstarter of the Week: Silver Gelatin Prints

Face it, most of the reason for giving to a Kickstarter campaign is to get something in return. You're not a philanthropist, you're an investor. And though that dynamic certainly still exists when you contribute to Digital Silver Imaging's plan to buy new equipment, that will help it continue to make black-and-white silver gelatin prints of digital images, you can rest assured that you're also helping preserving a rapidly diminishing photographic process.

Book Designs by Atelier Dyakova

London-based Russian graphic designer Sonya Dyakova is making us rethink the notion of judging a book by its cover. After studying in San Francisco, the typography specialist moved to London to work for interdisciplinary graphic designer Vince Frost and Kerr | Noble, before joining visual art book publisher, Phaidon Press, in 2005 as design director. She now runs her own multidisciplinary studio, Atelier Dyakova, where she consistently churns out designs that are "strongly rooted in conceptual and tactile details, as well as typographic experimentation." Dyakova is also the art director of contemporary art and culture magazine, frieze (re-designed in May 2012) and Frieze Masters magazine. Dyakova is currently working on a catalogue raisonné for Ron Mueck to coincide with his new show at the Cartier Foundation in Paris and come late April, will host a 5-day workshop at the Ecole cantonale d'art de Lausanne for graphic design students. Click through to see a bevy of picks from Atelier Dyakova's portfolio.

Photographer Henry Leutwyler's Ballet

Swiss born Henry Leutwyler is a photo school reject. He taught himself the anatomy of a camera and all the chemical processing fun a darkroom has to offer—praise the film gods for that! He made the move from Paris to New York City at the age of 25, and quickly developed his forté in celebrity portraiture. For the past four years, using only his 35mm Leica, the photographer has been collaborating with Peter Martins and the New York City Ballet, documenting behind-the-scenes and studio portraits of the dancers. Leutwyler and the NYC Ballet turned out to be such a perfect artistic alliance, that they kept him around for years and years to come. His latest book, Ballet: Photographs of the New York City Ballet is personal photo diary chronicling his era of ballerinas. For those who would like to enjoy his Ballet photography on the skate ramps, you're in luck because he's created some outstanding decks for your inner skater ballerina.

Modern Design at Coachella

Revelers and music fans have made it through the first weekend of the massive music festival Coachella in Indio, California, and those who sought a little shade from the scorching sun likely came across Mirage, an art installation and homage to the desert modernism of nearby Palm Springs. Coachella art director Paul Clemente envisioned the 6,000-square-foot structure and it was erected by Vermont-based builder Russ Bennett. Meant to be a kind of hang-out zone, the geometric piece was inspired by the work of architects like Neutra and Frey and will be taken down after this weekend's culmination of the festival.
