The Fableists, a sustainable children’s clothing line founded by Matt Cooper and London agency Brothers and Sisters, has unveiled the first of a series of brand films. The film features Finn, a fearless young London boy escaping to an urban jungle on his skateboard. The two-minute brand film is the first in an unprecedented, ambitious series of films documenting extraordinary kids around the world - kids with a gift, kids with drive, kids with ambition, kids who have overcome adversity. Well done!
Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) was one of America’s most beloved artists, renowned for the covers and drawings that appeared in The New Yorker for nearly six decades and for the drawings, paintings, prints, collages, and sculptures exhibited internationally in galleries and museums. In his lifetime he did over 90 covers and 1200 illustrations for the New Yorker.
Photographer Inge Morath and Saul Steinberg engaged in a unique collaboration in the late 1950s and early 1960s. When Inge Morath went to his home in 1958 to make a portrait, Steinberg greeted her at his door wearing a mask that he had fashioned from a paper bag. Over a period of several years they collaborated on a series of portraits, inviting individuals and groups to pose for Morath, wearing Steinberg’s masks.

Millions of people from around the world are currently experiencing very different childhoods. Some are living in abject poverty, lacking basic food and sanitation, while others are more fortunate by being born in a country where those things are guaranteed and usually taken for granted.
When photographer James Mollison was asked to come up with an idea for engaging with children’s rights, he found himself thinking of his bedroom: how significant it was during his childhood, and how it reflected what he had and who he was.
And with that, he made it his mission to create Where Children Sleep – a collection of stories about children from around the world, told through portraits and pictures of their bedrooms. Inside the book, each pair of photographs is accompanied by an extended caption that tells the story of each child. “It occurred to me that a way to address some of the complex situations and social issues affecting children would be to look at the bedrooms of children in all kinds of different circumstances”, James Mollison says on his website. “From the start, I didn’t want it just to be about ‘needy children’ in the developing world, but rather something more inclusive, about children from all types of situations.” Text and source here.
