Radio Soulwax. so it's a radio station, but not as you know it. For now, it's a growing collection of 24 one hour-long mixes with visuals that we are sharing with you for free, and hopefully it will become a platform for many more things to come. We call them mixes, but in reality they are more like musical films based on the record sleeves.
The saying goes that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. It occurs in places you least expect. Revealing its art in the human body, but also cruelly absent in the presence of deformations and scars. Ashkan Honarvar (1980) depicts an undeniable, unavoidable beauty by accepting the darker sides of human ‘nature’.
The body, torn by acts of war, exploited by the sex industry or used as a tool for seeking identity, is the focal point of his work.This constitutes a search for a universal representation of the evil latent in every human, providing an opportunity for reflection. His aesthetic dissection has an intriguing macabre nature, which opens the images to interpretation.
Honarvar’s almost empiric exploration of the human condition knows no bounds. Its goal; the indefinable core.

Vivienne Westwood's African inspired A/W collection is far from the glamour of the catwalk and glossy pages of Vogue. Not only has she drawn inspiration from African culture for her tribal designs and creations, but she employed 7000 Kenyans to handcraft the collection and featured many (and of course herself!) in the campaign. Shot in Nairobi by Juergen teller.

Cute mini art sculptures by Anja Markiewic. They are teeny tiny, ranging from 35mm to 8mm!
Inspiring words, ' Your life is your life, dont let it be clubbed into dank submission, be on the watch, there are ways out, there is a light somewhere' (Charles Bukowski). And beautiful cinematography, directed by Ralf Schmerberg. But, bad timing? The message is about life and spirit, not politics. People seem to forget 'Go Forth' is a campaign for non-profit organisations which help change the world and lives of others, sponsored by Levis. But, no doubt they would be criticised for being insensitive and seen to be encouraging youth rebellion and gangster behaviour if they continued to run the campaign.

If you have not yet had the pleasure to admire the striking black and white portraits on display please come and do so. They are by your fellow colleague Paul Burch.
Paul explores how the people that surround us everyday shape who we are and how, even though we may have little or no interaction with them, their presence is integral to our existence:
'Where we live plays a big part in defining who we are. It's not just about the architecture of the place, but the people who live around us...they all help to affirm our shared sense of existence and identity.'
The portraits are of people who live in Paul's village. This beardy bloke's (Bazil) face tells a story or two! I'm sure Paul would be delighted to talk to you if you want to know more.
Some of the images will be on show at Cannes this year. What an achievement!
