As promised here’s a closer look at London photographer Suzie Howell’s self published photobook Seagulls. Seagulls serves up all that damp beauty the British coastline can turn on, caught with a fine toothed attention to texture, colour and tone. Suzie’s landscapes have a painterly quality, cropping in on points of interest and keeping the greater Milieu hidden from the viewer. This is all the taste you’re going to get here, to see more visit Suzie’s website.
Designed and edited by Suzie Howell, Limited edition of 250 / 40 pages, Singer sewn binding and printed on Cyclus Offset. Book comes with a limited edition hand printed postcard sized C-type. Published by Awkward Feet, London, 2014.
Pascal Flammer created this timber house in Balsthal. There are two principal floors; one set 75 cm below the earth, one 1.50 m above. The ground floor consists of one single family room with a noticeably low horizontal ceiling. In this space there is a physical connection with the nature outside the continuous windows.
The space above is the inverse. This floor is divided into four equal rooms with 6m high ceilings. The height defines the space. Large windows open to composed views of the wheat field. Whereas the ground floor is about connecting with the visceral nature of the context, the floor above is about observing nature – a more distant and cerebral activity.
Dream house / imagine turning one floor into a giant studio with paper and books and pencils everywhere.
