Piers Faccini collaboration

posted in Photos & work news | Music & Movies  at 8.29 AM from Mr Cup Creative Studio . Arles / France listening Thomas Dybdahl

I like the word collaboration: the act of working with others on a joint project. Unfortunately it has a darker meaning in our history but I like it anyway ... I would gave my own definition : pooling everyone's talents to get a result that we can not get alone.

This is what happens with Piers Faccini. I am a graphic designer, yet I've never worked on graphics projects with Piers since he is already working with Uncle O. So Piers put me out of my comfort zone by asking me to take pictures of him and objects that he produces for his label Beating Drums. So my collaboration to his creative work consists in images to sublimate his objects such as his new book / record: a collection of poems with an instrumental music CD that accompanies the discovery of words ...

Piers is currently recording a new album, and we shared a few hours in his studio to turn his work intro pictures. The result is a series of photos that Piers to present on his site dedicated to the creating process for this new albums that will came out in a few months.

From Piers post : "There’s one little still life he took that day that really caught my eye. Resting on top of the piano, you can see my Neapolitan frame drum and to the right, an old mandolin I found in Portobello market more than twenty years ago, behind which there’s a photocopy of a C12th Sicilian musician playing a ribab. As the eye is lead left to right and out of the photo, you can see a piece of A4 paper with the chord structure for a song on the new album called “Judith” and my old American auto-harp from the 20’s. Even though I’m not in the frame, It’s as a true a portrait of this album and the working process that I could hope for."

I love tumblr & instagram

posted in Photos & work news  at 11.09 PM from Home ! Maruéjols Les Gardons (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France

As you may know, I am addicted to social media, but this is for the best, I guess it improve my visual life and inspiration source more than it makes me lose time ! OK, facebook makes me lose a little time...

 

tumblr

I love to compose with others pictures, and order them by colors... and I love to mix everything as inspiration can come from anywhere ! iammrcup.tumblr.com/

Instagram

As Jeff Sheldon said on a tweet the other day "Instagram has made me a better photographer. Not the app itself but the idea of consistently posting and refining the way I see things."

 

This sum up everything ! It is not about doing photogrpahy, it is to share and show how I see the world ! Follow me at instagram.com/iamrcup

I am in Paris for some days to shoot and try all the gluten free places we can for a coming article in the 3td issue of Niépi magazine. I have to test a lot of exellent gluten free food, visit very nice places and met even nicer people... hard ! You can follow me on instagram as I shoot a lot, and even on the instagram of niepi as I shoot for it too (my iphone in my left pocket, my wife one in the right pocket... people think I am crazy... oh, yes, I am !)... I plan to visit some design places too, but haven't even fount the time to present you nice shops for my last Paris stay 2 months ago... As I read today "if I only I have as much time as I have ideas..."
 
Perfect exemple, I never share on this blog the book I design for Elodie Rambaud last year. She asked me if I want to design the 288 pages of her favorit and unusual adresses of Paris ! It is very well printed and distributed by Marabout, and is full of amazing secret places... hope they will do an englih version soon.
