No time like the present

October. A month associated with leaves changing colours, searching for kindling and matches, pumpkin paraphernalia  and seemingly, as the high-street would like us to believe, the start of the countdown to Christmas (79 days at time of writing!). We may still have almost a third of the year left till the present giving season, but the pressure finding the right present for the person who (you think) has everything has already begun.

Maybe 2012 is the year which we can crack this, working together with others sharing the same dilemma and choose something a bit different, something original, something gorgeous..?

Teresa Green, usually.

Whilst on my travels today, it suddenly became apparent how green my surroundings were, accentuated with a tinge of seasonal change. This moment took me back to an individual telling me of someone they knew called Teresa Green, and how exciting a name I thought it was. Fact or fiction of the story told is irrelevant, but the concept is still the same.

The colour green dominates our day-to-day lives on differing levels depending on where we are seasonally, and geographically. Emma’s Lawrenson’s Forest series highlights this well, from full dominance to a more muted bark colour as we pass through time.

Emma’s Forest IV, III, II and Forest are available through Like Love Want. Click here to view all Emma’s limited edition prints.

Inspiring ethereal images by Luke Woodford

 

Luke Woodford is an internationally recognised photographer whose work has appeared editorially in luxury and specialist publications, and for prolific clients within the fashion Industry. His photography was recently selected to be part of Vogue Italia’s “A Glimpse at Photo Vogue – 101 Photographers/101 Pictures”, which took place in July/August 2012 in Milan.

Luke’s latest work, the ‘Abandoned Fashion Series’ was born out of his artistic appreciation for both abandoned buildings and inspiring haute couture, resulting in beautiful images surrounded with an ethereal and empowering aura. Limited edition prints from this series are now available.

NDI’s large scale intricacy

 

In the early 2000s, NDI took a hiatus from corporate life and enrolled at the London College of Printing, specialising in Professional Photography. Graduating with distinction in the course and a focus towards abstract art, NDI focused his attention towards macro black & white and colour narrow depth-of-field photography.

Developing large scale abstract photos and multiple-image collections, his work soon collected a keen following by interior designers, architects and property developers and his work has been used in houses, apartments and offices in London, New York, San Francisco and Tokyo. NDI stepped away from abstract art in 2008 but has made his back catalogue exclusively available on Like Love Want as limited edition prints.
