Burger King: Whopper Diamond by Grabarz & Partner & Soup Film supporting the LGBTQ+ community - Love is love is love

To celebrate Pride month, Burger King Germany has debuted the “Whopper Diamond,” jewels crafted from the ashes of its signature offering. The diamonds adorn a pair of bespoke wedding rings for a homosexual couple, Dima and Alvar, whom Burger King brought to Germany so they could get married. The pair hails from Eastern Europe, and one of them is from a country where same-sex marriage is illegal and there are no anti-discrimination laws protecting homosexuals. The idea is tied to Burger King’s long-running tagline, “Have it your way.”

“Guests are free to choose how they enjoy their Whopper in any country — whether with onions or an extra portion of cheese, the choice is theirs,” said director of marketing at Burger King Deutschland, Klaus Schmäing. “Together with Dima and Alvar, we would now like to show that every person should have the opportunity to freely decide. Especially when it comes to love.”
 

Book Launch & Party 'FADING BEAUTY' by Dale Grant, 5th July, in Berlin

Dale Grant’s Fading Beauty is a collection of photographs capturing the distinctive features which flowers display during their life cycle. Flowers all begin life looking rather similar but it is at the moment when they begin to wither and after some time die, that their true individual beauty can be witnessed as the vivid colors of their petals eventually become transparent and muted in tone. Dale Grant sees his images of flowers as portraits and in this direction he sets out to explore life’s uniqueness and constant change.

Born in the Bahamas, Dale Grant has spent most of his years living in Paris, New York, Amsterdam and Berlin. After graduating from university, he followed his heart and became a photographer specializing in fashion and portrait photography. Having worked for many years as a commercial photographer for magazines and fashion houses, Dale turned his focus to fine art photography.

For his fine art photography, flowers are his models of choice and they are for him an allegory for life. He says of the series: ''I find that as flowers begin to wither they...

 

'63 E 9TH STREET | NYC POLAROIDS 1975 - 1983' - TOM BIANCHI's new polaroid book by DAMIANI & exhibition at New Discretions until 5th of July in New York

New Discretions presents Tom Bianchi’s “63 E 9th Street.” 'This is our first collaboration with the artist, corresponding with his latest monograph of the same title. The exhibition will take place at Johannes Vogt’s Next Door Guest at 958 Madison Ave.' New Discretions is a curatorial project by Benjamin Tischer of INVISIBLE-EXPORTS.

In 1975 Tom Bianchi moved from the American heartland to New York City, seeking a place in the cultural and sexual revolution that was unfolding among its blossoming young gay population. On summer weekends, Bianchi took his Polaroid SX – 70 camera to the Pines; those pictures became the 2013 book Fire Island Pines: Polaroids 1975–1983. Years later, we now get a first look at another extraordinary collection of Bianchi’s Polaroids, taken in his East 9th St apartment. Bianchi’s New York apartment was an intimate, track-lit den, a safe stage where he and his friends played out erotic night games. At once confronting limited notions of the self and reveling in the spirituality of physical bodies, Bianchi faithfully documented these sexual encounters,...

JONPAUL DOUGLASS JOINS GIANT ARTISTS, LOS ANGELES

'We are excited to announce that Jonpaul Douglass has officially joined the Giant Artists roster! If you’re drawn to images that look like anyone could have shot them, then Jonpaul Douglass is not for you. This color-obsessed photographer, director, and creative director brings a head-turning approach to all of his work, whether he’s shooting for clients like Facebook, Apple, the NBA or Skittles or masterminding one of his viral photo projects, like 2014’s “Pizza in the Wild.

Grounding all of Jonpaul’s work is a crisp sophistication. He strips his compositions down to the essential elements and in doing so elevates everything that remains in the frame. “A photo needs to have a special quality that’s almost magical and makes you wonder,” he says. Spoken like a true creative director, which in fact Jonpaul is. Among his notable collaborations: He worked with Postmates to develop a distinct look and feel that set the food-delivery service apart from its competitors, particularly on social.

Jonpaul himself maintains an impressive presence on social media, with more than 98,000...
