Captain Hansen took over 15,000 photos as he traveled the world by plane during the 60′s and 70′s. They tell a story of life on the road, sometimes glamorous and other times lonely. The collection was found in shoe boxes labeled such titles as, “Singapur 72” or “Afrika 66″. The German Captain tells his story through these vintage slides and brings us to places in time we would have never seen.
The exhibit of his images is on display at the Tuer Galerie in Berlin.

Witness This cruised amongst the black and white of Le Beau’s LA launch party this last week. Seriously everyone at this party was wearing either black or white. It was hard not to be inspired by Le Beau’s latest line, shown to us by Nicholas Routzen who did his best to educate over jams by Erik Hart, Ross O’Carroll, Becka Diamond & DJ Whitney. The tee/tank cuts are duel gendered and as deep-necked as always. Materials soft and loose fitting, graphics clean and dialed. Beautiful people is the name of the game at these parties and we took part in a lot of trailing off conversations due to the amazing people watching. Lash is in the heart of the city and as we closed down the party and headed on our way, new tees in hand, we found ourselves walking quickly to dodge some shady street characters that surely just wanted a Le Beau’s Los Angeles Tee of their own.
I came across Alexandra Vacaroiu’s work last week and was immediately enamored. She hales from Romania and is currently studying photography and film at the National University of Arts in Bucharest. When we asked her about her work, she told us, “I’m more interested in recreating scenes from dreams or photographs with a dream-like atmosphere. The aim is to transcend the limit between reality and imagination.”
“Usually, people experiment dreams in an unconscious estate, alone. A dream cannot be dreamed in two or more people. This is a very personal travel, an escape from mundane that can become collective if expressed through art. I am interested in this realm because , since childhood, I had very intense dreams, colorful, and they always left me with a strong sensation of experiencing another reality, even for short term. Dreams are nothing more than manifestations of subconscious, but even bearing this in mind, my fascination continued for years. I have expressed my soft spot for this theme in writings and most of all photography. My series , “ Constellations”, exhibited at National Peasant Museum, in Bucharest, is comprising my theory with a universe within and interconnection, all expressed in a dream-like atmosphere.”
Alexandra’s projects have been selected by United Creativity organization and resulted in an exhibition in Krakow and London, with the aid of Warsaw Cultural Institute. Make sure you visit her site for more breathtaking work.
