When Spike Jonze first directed Arcade Fire’s “Suburbs” video, the idea was that the piece would play as a sort of “trailer” for an upcoming short film which would expand on tropes touched on in the music video.

Although many great things have sprung from the soil of the global contemporary […]

The Making of the 2010 Pirelli Calendar by Terry Richardson

Pirelli have just released a behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of their 2010 calender, including interviews with Terry Richardson and Ana Beatriz Barros, where it becomes painfully evident that Richardson has the best job in the history of the working man. I do find it hilarious when models complain about working so hard tho, it […]
