Take a Visual Journey Through 181 Years of Street Photography (1838-2019)

All of us here in the 2010s have, at one time or another, been street photographers. But up until 1838, nobody had ever been a street photographer. In that year when camera phones were well beyond even the ken of science fiction, Louis Daguerre, the inventor of the daguerreotype process and one of the fathers of photography itself, took the first photo of a human being. In so doing he also became the first street photographer, capturing as his picture did not just a human being but the u...

This Week in Photography Books: Josée Schryer

  It was 9 degrees below zero here this morning. (Fahrenheit, for all you non-Americans.) That’s insanely cold. An army of icicles hangs off my roof, each a menacing, translucent dagger that could impale a person without trying too hard. In other words, winter has arrived in earnest here in the Rocky Mountains. Ironically, our weather patterns have little to do with what happens in our part of the Great American West. Our mountains, rivers, ravens, cougars, and humans have nothing to do with it ...

Kitchen of the Week: The Site of Your Next Dinner Party, in New York’s Flower District

Oftentimes, here on the Remodelista editorial team, one design discovery leads to another, and another. Case in point: A few weeks ago, Julie stumbled upon Coquo, a Montreal-based company revolutionizing modular kitchen systems, which in turn led us to Witness Apartment, just a few blocks south of our New York offices, in the heart of Manhattan’s Flower District. (N.B.: We’ll be writing more about Coquo itself in another post; stay tuned.) Though the name (and Google searches) brings to mind som...

Flying over Quebec in a Hot Air Balloon

Quebec Hot Air Balloon Ride Last week, while on my first trip to Quebec, we did something I’ve always wanted to do – ride in a hot air balloon! I’ll admit, I was quite nervous about being in a hot air balloon. I’m usually pretty good with heights, but the thought of floating 3,200 feet above ground in a basket was a little nerve-racking. However, it’s not every day I have the opportunity to fly in a hot air balloon, so I committed to taking the tour if the weather cooperated. I joined a gr...

These Are The Female Artists To Watch In 2018

Art, in all its varied forms, is oftentimes the key to deciphering, celebrating, and coping with the world we live in. Beautiful lyrics, for example, can heal and inspire us, while a colorful, abstract painting has the power to transport us into a new realm, allowing us to view things from a different perspective. And just as we celebrate the art that makes us feel so deeply and motivates us to live boldly, authentically, and without fear, we should also celebrate the talented artists behind th...

Fall in Love With the World

I’m writing this from seat 23B of an Air Canada flight, somewhere high above middle Canada, headed west. Travel is a regular part of life for me. I rarely go a month without a journey somewhere. This year has taken me to Los Angeles, Portland, the highlands of Guatemala, the sunny coast of Portugal and for a 100 km walk to the end of the world in Spain. I’m staging for a month in Europe and North Africa this fall. People sometimes ask me why I travel so much. My knee-jerk answer, usually, is, “...
