Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #218

Start your Monday off right,

  1. Netflix released a new season of Chef’s’ Table. The series is one of my favorite on tv. As much as the show is about food, the series digs into creativity at such a deep level.

  2. The winners for the International Landscape Photographer of the Year were announced and the work is as gorgeous as you would imagine.

  3. Vincent Bal uses items from around his house to create shadows that are fundamental elements in his illustrations.

  4. All Japanese temples and shrines were built without any iron as the metal was almost impossible to source back in the day. They used elaborate wooden joints to create the structures. Takahiro Matsumoto builds and repairs the temples using this old technique.

  5. If you want more design resources, Carly Ayres started a whole twitter thread collecting design publications.

  6. Wayne Martin Belger built his own elaborate pinhole camera and created portraits of people being dehumanized by the government.

  7. “None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after-thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.”

    — Nanea Hoffman

  8. Patrick Barr, a photographer from NYC, is better known as Tiger Hood. He plays golf with small milk containers on the street while selling his prints and is a staple of the neighborhood.
