Giant Candy

2011-07-05 2

Candies, little as they are, never fail to zap us back to our childhood. What more if they were big – no, gigantic!

Nicola Freeman came up with the idea of enlarging candies to a scale that was shocking. And shock her gigantic candy sculptures did. But more than that, the larger-than-life sweets were also described by onlookers as enchanting and fun – two words that clearly belong to our youth.

The oversized confectionery included Love Hearts, a Sweetie Watch, a Sweetie Necklace and a lollipop, all of which are popularly beloved treats. It must have been hard to see the commentary on mass consumerism past the fond memories these elicited.

Well-planned and crafted, Nicola’s giant candies are pretty convincing. But alas, they are inedible, being made of plaster and resin.

     Inspiring and Daring Women in Contemporary Photography (Part I)

    We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.

    Self to the World: The Photography of Leanne Surfleet

    A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.
