Dinara Kasko combines architecture and desserts


4

Architecture and desserts aren’t really two topics relating to each other at first sight. At least that’s what I’ve thought till I saw Dinara Kasko’s incredible desserts. The photos of her creations are shared all around the world, her Instagram account is booming. Some of her works may not look very appetizing in the beginning but rather nice to look at. But in her videos the artist shows you what the contents of her masterpieces actually is, making you quite hungry for some chocolate and other desserts.

There’s no doubt that drone photography and a bird’s eye view which is becoming more and more popular have been a clear trend in the world of photography for quite some time.

No wonder because they allow you a perspective that human-beings aren’t likely to experience otherwise.

In his last projects the photographer has dedicated himself to drone photography and what he shoots isn’t breathtaking sceneries or spectacular images in cities. With his photos he rather highlights the striking contrasts between rich and poor.

Finally some snow


For some weeks I’ve been searching for winter desperately, for some snow on the trees, for some icicles hanging down the rooftops, for children walking through the winter landscape wearing snowshoes or trailing their toboggans. All I’ve found so far was sad sceneries, barren meadows and anything else but a winter fairytale atmosphere.

As I fell into my bed exhausted yesterday evening and dared to glimpse out of the window before closing my eyes, the image was totally different from this morning. During the night snow finally surprised us for the first time this winter. I was happy like a little child the way I always get happy when everything is white.

They claim that it was him who invented top models. That may be a bit exaggerated. However, nobody can deny that the photo taken by Peter Lindbergh showing a group of stunningly beautiful young ladies strolling through the streets of New York changed the fashion world and started a new era of top models. Because these ladies weren’t any ordinary women but Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington. In the early 1990s this very image appeared on the cover of the British “Vogue”. Until today it’s maintained its cult status, with Peter Lindbergh ranging among the most popular photographers of our time. For decades you can find his photos in every important fashion magazine.
