French photographer Antoine Geiger creates photos of people having their faces sucked into their cellphones. The project, titled SUR-FAKE, touches on issues of technology dependence and addiction. I loved the concept and its visual art the moment I saw this project. Absolute love.

“Nothing was staged. I went out and captured reality,” says Antoine.

Antoine Geiger is a 20-year-old photographer who’s lived in England, France and the Netherlands. Over the last two years, he’s had four exhibitions, and been mentioned or published in print ten times.

VOGUE x FUTURE

From re-inventing ancient fashion to taking us through the loophole from present to the future, Vogue is what Vogue does. Here are few of their covers from around the word inspired by the time to come.

Absolutely intrigued by the futuristic design transformation of electrical pylons into statues on the Icelandic landscape. A truly beautiful excuse for form and function to combine and create something aesthetically pleasing and unique.

“If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   

    “If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

    And treat those two impostors just the same;   

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken

    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:” 

– If , Ruyard Kipling

I did not click this picture but whoever did is a genius and I am more than glad to have found inspiration from this brilliant photography and have been able to relate one of my favorite poems by Kipling for this challenge.

Being a firm believer of Karma I think embracing paradoxes of life is a way to accept who you are and who you want to be. The reason I chose this stanza in particular is because the way Ruyard has brought two extreme paradoxes together and made sense out of it. Just like that! He says that we are our own masters and what we give power to has power over our-selves.

It’s funny how this poem has helped me look at life through all my stages of puberty and will continue to do so through all the kinds of epiphany (if that’s even possible).

Have a great week!
