NYC The Way Ludwig Farve Sees It.


Ludwig Favre, Born in France in 1976, in north of Paris. Ludwig Favre is a Photographer specializing in major cities and landscapes of America, raised in Paris, he has created visuals on a variety of media platforms from advertising campaigns to magazine editorials, books, gallerys over the world.  Ludwig Favre is without doubt a man with skills and a keen sensibility for aesthetics and composition.  Favre travels the world documenting its wonders in a way that elevates their look, creating an almost surreal, paint-like quality to the very landmarks we probably take for granted. From the front-facing wall of a building, to national parks, the designs of universities, pristine beaches and cityscapes around the world, click on any of Favre’s projects on his official online portfolio and you’ll be inspired by every shot, each representing a stunning scene of the world like you’ve probably not appreciated as much before.  Here’s his take on the one-and-only New York City.

Modern Day Mythological Statues.

The ancient Greek sculptures of gods, leaders, heroes, and athletes of old, still resonate in our minds as being just a little larger than life (regardless of their actual size).  I’ve always wondered what a modern interpretation of those same ever-powerful images would look like, and this collection pretty much sums it up.  Featured below is a collaboration between southern California based advertising photographer Tim Tadder and Paris based digital artist Cristian Girotto. After seeing Cristian’s work with fashion skin retouching on behance, Tim reached out with a new concept for the talented artist’s technique. Quite simply Tim had the desire to recreate some of the most classic athlete statues from antiquity and with Cristian’s glass/porcelain skin type overlay he new the series would be strikingly unique.

greenwall_paris_00

A five-story block in Paris has become the latest building to have a vertical garden installed. Made with over 7,500 plants, the “green wall” is 25-meters high and was designed by living wall inventor Patrick Blanc. The plant installation is called L’Oasis D’Aboukir (the Oasis of Aboukir) and includes plants from 237 different species, planted in diagonal waves. Planted in the sprint, the plants cover a previously raw concrete facade and add a much-needed splash of life to the surrounding area.

Using LED technology ‘the pixels crossing’ by french designer miguel chevalier is a sensory artwork completed in collaboration with traffic and sound composer Michel Redolfi. Installed inside the temporary tunnel, connecting the Forum des Halles and the Place Carrée in Paris, the light piece features successive, multicolored graphical scenes that harmoniously follow to a musical rhythm. A cadenced wave pattern of sound palpitates from the walls with light diffracting within the alveolar polycarbonate panels. Spanning along the 40m tunnel, the 4m high sensory artwork enriches pedestrian’s experience as they walk along the transit route transforming a regular tunnel into a magical and contemporary passage.

To celebrate the re-opening of their 12,000 sq ft Beverly Hills boutique, luxury French fashion label Hermés have created a blue basketball which, with a price tag of $12,900 USD, may spend more time on your mantlepiece than on the court. Only two of the bright blue calfskin balls have been created, but according to the brand’s American CEO Robert Chavez, they can “certainly be used for play – the leather is sturdy, and why not make such a unique item come to life on the court?” Made at the special orders atelier in Paris under the creative direction of Pierre-Alexis Dumas, the balls feature the same hand-stitched technique as the brand’s iconic Birkin bag and represent “the sky, the ocean and all the beautiful pools that are a way of life in L.A. and Southern California.”
