Feeling tired and sluggish this Monday? We all do. We just need a jolt to make things go smooth.
I don’t loathe Mondays… intentionally. There are just things that happen on the weekend that may also be the cause of the Monday Blues. My favorite author Kurt Vonnegut talks about Blue Monday in one of his novels and it’s far from what you can imagine. Get over your blues. Regardless how tiring it may be, just keep your head up.
His book Breakfast of Champions is a tragic comedy that reflects real life. The humanist in Vonnegut always saw the good in people and in what surrounded him. He believed in being kind above all else. His satirical voice is like a backhand to reality. He was funny like that.
But the famed writer left nuggets of wisdom that I personally hold dear. To provide some kind of inspiration for you to get over your Blue Mondays, too; here they are:
“We are healthy only to the extent that our ideas are humane.”
“There’s only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.”
A bright blue sky on a Blue Monday doesn’t sound so bad now, doesn’t it?
Rooms contain what the owner values or has come to hate (tucked in boxes, of course). Colors reveal mood swings. Gardens follow the season’s orders. A house keeps up with ever-changing whims and styles—one of the things that make it a home. Here’s something to inspire your next spruce-up.
A road trip is a celebration of little freedoms. It’s a chance to break out of a rut and to be a little unruly. All the mischief may be off limits to the camera, so the things we do photograph need to serve our memory well: They must convey the relief, fun and color of our secret sprees.

In 2015 we had been fortunate enough to talk with photographers, with practices and insights unique from one another, from all over the globe. And not only were we able to see their works; we were also able to dig a little deeper and find out what makes each one of them tick. In this special recap, we present a handpicked selection of insightful quotes from some of our most memorable interviews this year.
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.
