The Bauhaus Wheel Diagram

A curriculum in the form of a wheel-like diagram. You wouldn't be surprised if it was made by Gropius for the Bauhaus curriculum. This is exactly what inspired us to create the Fisheye Baby 110 Bauhaus edition!

Tell me, when you’re applying, or already going, to a university or college, wouldn’t you expect a long list of courses and descriptions printer on a plain old square paper? I’m sure that what most of us printed out when browsing the university’s website.

But here’s an interesting diagram made by Gropius, Founder and Director of the Bauhaus.

It’s shaped like a wheel, where the outer edge of it represents a six-months preliminary course (the Vorkurs). This course involved painting and elementary experiments with form. The two middle rings inside signifies the three-year course (the Formlehre and Werklehre), including the materials that were used. The three years of workshop is trained by two masters: one artist, one craftsman. In the middle, the hub of the wheel pays reference to building constructions and engineering. Architecture was studied in theory and practiced by working on actual constructions of buildings.

Sounds like a fun curriculum to me! Apply this to a camera, and you get the Fisheye Baby 110 Bauhaus edition!

    The World According to Herr Willie: Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

    Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.

    Vintage Gallery: Art School Classes

    If formal training alone is not enough to make great art, then being in a room full of like-minded people might be another form of encouragement.

    Angela Izzo on Shooting with the Diana Mini, Photographing Musicians, and Then Some

    While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.

    Gommorah Girl: An Interview with Valerio Spada

    Valerio Spada went beyond his comfort zone and stepped right into the battlefield with his camera. He went to Naples, Italy, an area populated by the Camorra Mafia but also home to Annalisa Durante who, at the age of 14, was killed by a bullet aimed at a Camorra boss. What happened to her could've happened to any of the girls portrayed in the book Gommorah Girl. This work is about Annalisa. It's about all of the girls that, just like her, seem doomed to an unfair destiny - which, hopefully, may still change.
