Mr. Weber, what’s your favorite picture you have ever taken?
A picture of my mom and dad. It was the last vacation I took with them. I am proud of that picture. I think it is exposed beautifully, I think it is posed beautifully. I think my Dad looked like Paul Newman when he was really young, really handsome. My mom was very beautiful and they were really into each other. They were like young lovers when they were older. So I look at it and I see them as young lovers in that picture. I love that photo the most.
Tommy, you are one of the most successful street style bloggers around. How much time do you spend on the Internet yourself?
If I have to look at it, maybe like 8 or 10 hours a day.
Would you say you are addicted to fashion?
The longest I can spend away from fashion is maybe half a day. It’s really just this force in my life where, even when I’m not working, I have such a significant interest where I have to just always immerse myself by reading about it online, just feeding myself with visual imagery. I think Tumblr is my biggest addiction.

“I love London!” beams photographer and director Ellen von Unwerth in her soft Frankfurt lilt, while holding court at Michael Hoppen’s Gallery in Chelsea, where she has come to unveil her latest show, Do Not Disturb. The gallery is buzzing with a crowd of fashion’s inimitable characters and misfits who are spilling out onto the street, while inside, Unwerth electrifies the room in a lightening bolt-print Miu Miu jumpsuit and her distinctive flash of wavy silver hair, turning to embrace old friends and new ones alike as they clamber to congratulate her, and all the while snapping well-wishers on her digital point-and-shoot.

Born near Paris in 1943 to a modest family, he spent his childhood in Le Havre with his mother and four brothers. For his seventeenth birthday, his stepfather bought him his first Eastman Kodak camera. Demarchelier learned how to develop film, retouch negatives and began shooting friends and weddings.
In 1975, he left Paris for New York to follow his girlfriend. He discovered fashionphotography by working as a freelance photographer and learning and working with photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Terry King, and Jacque Guilbert. His work drew the attention of Elle, Marie Claire and 20 Ans Magazine.
When Art and Photography is created by two people together, it has a different sort of affirmation. The idea of finding a creative partner in one another has already happened, versus looking at an Artists work and getting ideas of how that Artist can learn to “find the right one”, “love someone/be loved” or what other Artist is their challenging “other”.
Art has no words, neither a necessary meaning. Aleksey is the Photographer and Marina is the designer from Russia and a part of the International federation of Artists.

“We saw a demonstration of what Paintbox could do,” van Lamsweerde recalled, referring to a Quantel-produced precursor to Adobe’s Photoshop. “At that point it was used to straighten lines and shine up the wheels of a car for advertising. It hadn’t really been used for fashion or for images of people. We were like ‘Oh my god’ – it was so unbelievably exciting. It just opened up the whole world for us.”
