Make no bones about Jack White being one of the craftier rockstars out there. When he isn’t shredding guitars in concert, he’s producing experimental records on various media, like his latest one on flex-ray discs made of x-ray film!
Former White Stripes guitarist and singer-songwriter Jack White really knows how to get his creative juices flowing. You might remember our collaboration with the awesome twosome some time ago which resulted in two equally winsome limited edition cameras: the JACK Holga and MEG Diana+. Now Jack is back with another ace endeavor, this time strumming strings as Butthole Surfers’ Gibby Haynes sings along. “The Gibby Haynes Blues Series” is a 7-inch, 3-track album created on flex-ray discs.
Perhaps White drew inspiration from the Cold War era, when people smuggled censored American music into the Soviet Union via X-ray film. But the musician is well known for his quirky uses of vinyl: In 2012 he released his single “Sixteen Saltines” on clear vinyl filled with blue liquid. His Grammy-nominated song, “Freedom at 21,” was distributed via balloon launch. White released 1,000 helium balloons into the air attached with flexi-discs of the single from his debut solo album.

In the work of Binh Danh, art is space for the unnamed to be seen. When war is the theme every detail counts. How does one person tackle this massive issue, where death and the value of lives intersect? A one-man job becomes a job about other men. And so for his series "Immortality: The Remnants of the Vietnam and American War" he made chlorophyll prints to express the indelible mark of war on various lands. Soldiers and laymen whose faces and records have been archived are given another chance to be remembered.

It can be said that photography is more than just a click on the camera, it makes the moments, people and emotions live forever. This was confirmed to us by an exceptional Dutch photographer Ferry Verheij, whose photographs represent stories of all those people and places he had a chance to know.
