London and New York: A Double Exposure Project

Daniella Zalcman is a photojournalist who has worked for the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Sports Illustrated, and National Geographic, among other outlets. When she moved from New York to London, she decided to create a series of double exposures to marry the spirit of both cities based on a combination of negative space, color, and contrast. Daniella’s double exposures create beautiful imaginary landscapes, and are captured entirely with her iPhone 4s. Although she ordinarily uses professional-grade DSLRs, she enjoyed using the iPhone for the freedom it afforded her, feeling more at liberty to experiment with techniques which would be out of place in traditional photojournalism. In line with other hip “smartphone photography,” like Chase Jarvis’ The Best Camera Is the One That’s With You, Daniella’s photos speak to something beautiful about travel, through a lens which is portable.

Off the Grid by François Chambard and Frederick McSwain

A recent show at Gallery R’Pure in New York explored the meaning of life ‘off the grid’ for the urban explorer. While Off the Grid is nomadic by nature, a cohesiveness in color, materials, and aesthetics brings together complimentary pieces from two designers. François Chambard and Frederick McSwain designed their respective pieces independently while maintaining an ongoing conversation about the dual notions of ‘off the grid.’ Symbolizing both a method of design and the concept of stepping outside of an organized society, a camping theme provided the basis for their exploration. Updating the typical ‘great outdoors’ palette of olives, browns, and grays to brightly hued reds and blues is an instant indicator the pieces are more attuned to a city adventurer. A generous use of color-infused anodized steel and aluminum offers a weighty counterbalance to the bright disposition of the items, and gives them a monumental weight. While you’re not likely to carry them along on your next hike, we can easily see these cheerful pieces the highlight of a domestic camp destination in any city.
