Photographer Archives

The restoration of AOC’s Photographer Archives is moving along — enough for us to share a cover page. We’re adding 1-3 photographers a week. It’s been a hell of a walk back from 10,000 broken links — frankly needless had we received better assistance in our move onto Squarespace 7 from Squarespace 5.

Thanks for your patience, as we are so excited to finish this project in 2019. ~ Anne

Helena Christensen Captures Horsewoman Gigi Hadid Honoring Country For Vogue Czech May 2019

Gigi Hadid’s Vogue Czechoslovakia May 2018 cover story is out and it’s a beauty. Jan Králíček styles Gigi in noble origins horsewoman looks — after all, Gigi loves horses. Helena Christensen uses her camera to create pure poetry in what becomes a very serious discussion of sustainability, as yet another magazine weaves serious discussions around fashion editorials.

In this case Vogue Czech editor-in-chief Andrea Běhounková writes an indepth letter about sustainability: (English translation), ending it after talking about the water used to make one single cotton shirt and the overall role of fashion in polluting the planet:

I admit that Honza Králíček and I were flying by plane with (to?) Gigi Hadid and Helena Christensen. 
With us four suitcases. 
Two years (over?) there, two back. 
Less than ninety kilograms of clothing and 58 pairs of shoes. 
Leather clothes yes, no fur coats. 
It is not the power that is responsible for the environment, but how else to get to the east coast of the United States? (She’s speaking about carbon emissions and flying by jet everywhere).

Gigi invited us home. Try to decline this invitation. 
With a clear conscience.

I was about to check if Helena made the shoot near her country house in upstate New York, but it sounds likely that the group congregated at Gigi’s family country house not far from my beloved Carversville. Helena is deeply committed to the environment and always always rides her bike around Manhattan. ~ Anne

The exhibit has now moved to the Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt.

Eating Insects Has Long Made Sense in Africa. The World Must Catch Up

Eating Insects Has Long Made Sense in Africa. The World Must Catch Up

Eating Insects Has Long Made Sense in Africa. The World Must Catch Up.

Scientists have long proposed insects as feed or foodstuff for animals. But views about entomophagy differ widely: food conscious lobbies and scientists promote insects as novel foods while at the other extreme people view eating insects as crazy. Between those two extremes are communities that have been practising entomophagy for ages.
