Contemporary fashion is permeated by the contamination of different styles and the brand, named in 1991 by Dave Lane and Jeremy Guard, represents a perfect synthesis of current trends that mix streetwear, gorpcore, workwear and of course the outdoor world.

Last weekend, Arc’teryx presented its first surf film, “Happy Recluse”, produced and directed by Nate Laverty and that features brand ambassador and pro-surfer Pete Devries and photographer Jeremy Koreski

After nearly ten years of searching for the best cold-water waves in British Columbia – Canada’s westernmost province – and in the waters around Vancouver Island, Koreski and Devries recounted, through pictures the former and words and performance the latter, the years of this “Happy Reclues” during which they highlighted the fascination and excitement of cold-water surfing.

“The cold isn’t for everyone. t’s raw, it’s stormy, the conditions rarely align. No one’s going to tell you where the good waves are, it’s hard-earned lessons that get you there. The cold isn’t for everyone, but it’s for me”, Devries says.

The nine-minute film is the result of a series of trips to the late 2020s: “The weather and waves mostly cooperated, but like so many exploratory surf trips, we caught a glimpse of what we were looking for, just enough to keep us wanting more”, Koreski wrote on his website.

Below you can take a look at “Happy Recluse”, Arc’teryx’s debut in the surf films, enjoy.

Martin Neuhof, an evocative photographer and portraitist

Martin Neuhof, an evocative photographer and portraitist

Federica Cimorelli · 3 days ago · Photography

Martin Neuhof, born in 1984, is a German photographer and portrait artist based in Leipzig, Germany. Martin followed in the footsteps of his grandfather Friedrich Gahlbeck, a well-known German photographer of the last century, then worked to afford a camera and began experimenting with images.

His photography is clear and elegant, it focuses on the human face and delves into the interiority of the subject he captures. For Martin Neuhof, the face is a gateway to human emotions, an obstacle to be overcome and a barrier to be broken.

His photographic compositions manage to break down all appearances, they are creative shots that highlight the protagonist of the image and meanwhile strike the viewer, provoke him and activate something in his inner self.

The dark and mysterious shots of Marit Beer

The dark and mysterious shots of Marit Beer

Collater.al Contributors · 2 days ago · Photography

The shots of Marit Beer are dark and mysterious, they tell stories of distant and unknown countries where it is cold, there is silence and the air is humid.

To enter her world you only need to look at her photographs: it seems to be in another reality, isolated, far from the confusion of civilization, among small unattended villages surrounded by wild countryside.

Looking at her shots is like reliving them, is like diving in an uncomfortable world of embroidery and lace, among old fabrics crumpled and faded by time. You can perceive her thoughts and anxieties: the passing of time, the weight of existence and the intimacy of secrets.

Her subjects are authentic but always seem to disappear, they are ghosts that never show themselves in their entirety, impenetrable, enigmatic and disturbing spirits.

The photographs of Marit Beer involve us and drag us away from reality, they are ancient paintings faded by time.

Follow her.

The mysterious photography of Joanne Leah

The mysterious photography of Joanne Leah

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 days ago · Photography

The Brooklyn artist Joanne Leah creates beautiful photographiy that bring the observer into a mysterious journey through her intellectual-surreal world.

Her intent is to examine the relationship between human form, objects, materials, and conventions, transforming each of them into something very different and far.

Using different color palettes, yellow, green, red and purple, she uses the human body as if it were a design element.

Her contents are all inspired by her childhood memories and explore issues such as isolation, detachment and identity.

Apparently violent, each image expresses a concept that, through her subconscious, come to life with an object or subject in tune with her visions.
