Do The Don'ts

Photographer Tim Wallker and set designer Shona Heath invite us into the fantastical and rebellious world of Juicy Couture.

Mary McCartney

Mary McCartney's 'Off Pointe' is a beautiful story of moments behind the scenes of the gracious world of ballet. The photographs reveal a mix of emotions before, during and after performance - from laughter, joy and excitement, to tears, anxiety and exhaustion. The backstage scenes are a vivid contrast to the immaculate display seen on stage.

His work includes 'sound wave' and 'keyboard code' style portraits, music inspired typeface poster lyrics and optical artwork. Galapon translates technological, geometrical and graphic patterns and symbols into abstract imagery, type and portraiture.
