Foam Magazine #40 After Araki / Heaven and Hell


In my opinion, the most beautiful photography publication on the planet right now is Foam Magazine (and has been for awhile). There is no one touching them, not even close. This gorgeous issue “After Araki / Heaven and Hell” features contemporary Japanese photographers whose work has been directly influenced by Nobuyoshi Araki.

I took a whole bunch of photos of the issue, and rather than try to describe how amazing it looks I’ll just let you peek inside and make up your own mind. As far as magazines go, it ain’t cheap, but it’s less than you’d spend on any art book.

Thank you to the crew at Foam, the issues you send over are always the highlight of my week. Take a look inside “After Araki / Heaven and Hell” below.

Buy Nothing For €199

buy-nothing04buy-nothing02 buy-nothing01buy-nothing07

Last year Amsterdam-based copywriter Pim de Graaff designed a product to remind people to enjoy everything they already have. His product, Nothing, is simply a block of wood. Actually, it’s a block of wood that comes with a rather hefty price tag of €199. A product like this would be infuriating if Pim wasn’t donating all of the proceeds from Nothing to Oxfam, an organization which fights poverty worldwide. Something to consider when buying gifts this holiday season!

There are only 10 of these white Nothings (he sold the black ones last year) so if you want one jump over here: YouNeedNothing.com
