Fate brought them together, beauty is their vision and together their two heads make “one brain.” Parish Stapleton and Marty Lochmann – stylist and photographer duo – create stunning images together and share their knowledge and experience through Stylist Lab, where they run a series of in-depth interior styling workshops. At the core of the Lab’s philosophy is attention to detail, a focus on concept, and – importantly – belief in practical skills and hands-on experience. Here is a look into this creative hub and the pair who make it happen.
Empty, people-less spaces in architectural photography is out. Well, not really. But what’s in, is creative project shoots – and specifically dress ups. More and more, designers are taking an inventive approach to the capturing of their work on camera, incorporating props, people, and a strong sense of narrative. The result is some very dynamic – and entertaining – photography of houses and spaces, which could actually pass as works of art on their own.
Model House in Melbourne by Breathe Architecture is a very personal residential architecture project, designed for a theatrical set designer and his wife.
Christopher Rimmer is a Melbourne-based fine art photographer who’s forthcoming exhibition, Sign of Life, is a visual examination of the tragedy of two abandoned towns slowly being buried by the sands. The images were shot on location in the diamond mining towns of Elizabeth Bay and Kolmanskop in South Western Namibia. Local institutions such as the hospital, ballroom, power station, theatre, casino, ice factory and the first x-ray-station in the Western Hemisphere are all shown in a surreal and almost unrecognisable state.
