….its on the move again…. This time to the charming coastal city of Busan, the second largest city in South Korea. Thank you to the organisers at The Hankyoreh for working tirelessly to present the work in such a world class style.
Philosophers, historians, biologists and artists will give life to this event, which aims to be a bridge between science and art, two worlds which aren’t very well acquainted but have always been mutually attracted to each other. The exhibition will be a unique event with a great media coverage, having – among others – the aim of raising awareness on the serious problems caused by marine ecosystem pollution, while embodying the will of educating people in the aquatic environment protection.
“Art Mode Design – Esthetique et Philosophie du mond aquatique” will be held at the Museum of the Porte Dorée in Paris from 29th February 2016 to 3rd July 2016.
Last week I worked with the Birmingham Royal Ballet: Check out the pool building windows which distorted through the water surface giving the illusion of a classic tall ship with sails. Given that we were shooting for the production of The Tempest it was quite an amazing stroke of luck!
Thank you to the immensely talented dancers and to the BRB’s visionary director David Bintley.
The Tempest stage production opens October 1st, 2016, Birmingham Hippodrome.
She’s an award-winning singer with a blossoming acting career to boot. But superstar Rita Ora, 24, added another string to her bow recently as she was snapped in her first underwater shoot by photographer Zena Holloway. Playing the part of a mystical mermaid, the new x factor judge appears to be swimming through the sea as she promotes a new fish restaurant.
The aquatic photoshoot took place to promote new restaurant Sexy Fish, which opens in London’s Berkeley Square in mid-October. It was inspired by the restaurant’s private dining room ‘The Coral Reef Room’, which houses the largest live coral reef tank in the world. The new seafood brasserie includes an array of incredible artwork, from world-renowned artist Damien Hirst’s pair of bronze cast mermaids to the 13ft crocodile sculpture designed by Frank Gehry and a ceiling mural by illustrator Michael Roberts.
The backstage video of the shoot can be viewed here:

Suited and booted for a British winter, the model wears neither protective chainmail nor mask while filming. He shuts his eyes against the salty water while technical adjustments are made by the crew – something that “takes some balls” while surrounded by sharks, says photographer Zena Holloway.
