A creator of beautiful images, an artist balancing his composition, an alchemist of light. New York-based Hector Sanchez is my new photographer crush. Passion and beauty, colour and composition.

A mood, a vibe, a certain something. Like a mumur, a ripple in the calm that builds and grows and reverberates. It’s a flag, a marker, a passage that doesn’t state the bleeding obvious but uses passion to tell the story. It’s a photographer that takes light and bends it, traps it, caresses it to capture the mood, the meaning, the beauty. Images with an artist’s eye. Photography by Siren Lauvdal. Gorgeous.

Have you got your hands on Sibella Court‘s new book Nomad yet? A feast of beautiful images, a veritable orgy of fabulous objects, Sibella’s latest is as stunning as her award winning Etcetera. Image after inspiring image, tales of travels and of incorporating treasures into everyday life. It’s globetrotting and daydreaming from the comfort of your lounge chair. Life is so much more beautiful seen through Sibella’s eyes. Nomad is a perfect example of why the printed book will always exist. As wonderful as the images are on screen the experience is taken to a whole other level by just sitting and feeling this tactile book, letting your eyes wander (and wonder) from page to page. The images here are by Sibella’s brother the über talented Chris Court. His lush, colour rich shots convey Sibella’s bower bird aesthetic perfectly. Am I gushing? Yes. This is a must have for those who love a visual feast.
