Made in USA: Textiles

NY-based photographer Chris Payne’s latest work Textiles takes us behind the doors of America’s textile industry. To highlight the roots of this industry, Payne has chosen to photograph factories and mills located in the Northeast where it was born. In his photos we see dizzy patterns of repetition, immaculate grids of steel machinery, fluffy mountain peaks of wool, and bright-colored yarns suspended overhead like Vietnamese lanterns. But what makes this work interesting is the deliberate inclusion of the workers, which reveal the care, skill and craftsmanship of their work and the efforts taken to ensure a high-quality end product.

Dreamlike Photographs Tell of the Comforts of Home



“I wanted to start a project that was close to home,” says Massachusetts-based photographer Tsar Fedorsky. “The idea originated from feelings I was having about my personal life. While I yearned to experience the broader world, I also recognized that I was quite comfortable at home. I decided to create a photo narrative about a woman who dreams of a larger life.”

“I was sort of like Andy’s boyfriend,” says Warhol Factory photographer, manager, and sometime bodyguard Billy Name (née William Linich) of his intimate friendship and collaboration with the Pop Art personality. Name’s position in Warhol’s life and work, however, eclipsed the boundaries of an ordinary on-again-off-again romance, and his recent book, Billy Name: The Silver Age, is an ode The Factory, to its manifold guests, and to the sterling world the two of them created together.

The architectural photograph, suggest the architects, photographers, and editors behind the Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Award, is too often judged solely based on the merits of the architecture itself, rather than the ingenuity of the photographer and the interplay between the lens and the space. The winner and runners up of the prestigious award, presented in collaboration with the World Architecture Festival (WAF) in Singapore and Sto Werkstatt, London, was announced as part of the WAF Gala Dinner, and the results are breathtaking.

Photographer Returns to His Beloved Grandma’s House Six Months After Her Death



Los Angeles-based photographer Robert P. Cohen remembers his grandmother’s house simply as “Mama’s House.” During his childhood, the Woodmere, Long Island home was where all the children came together to eat their grandma’s fresh-baked goods, to play, leap and bound across the fancy furniture, and be tucked in at night with familiar tales of distant family member and ancestors. Six months after his grandmother’s death, Cohen returned once more to the house, preserving its images just as it had been when she was alive.

The Northern Spanish landscape, report Italian photographers Diambra Mariani and Francesco Mion, is flecked with tiny, sequestered villages that have remained largely deserted for decades. While most of the rural population has since abandoned these bucolic corners of the country for buzzing cities, recent years have seen a rebirth; with the help of a few devoted and romantic souls, these forgotten bowers have been suffused with new life.

Portraits of Backpackers Living in a Tiny, Hidden Hotel in Tokyo



Almost two years ago, the photographer Won Kim was back-packing across Japan and passed through Arakawa-ku, a ward in northeastern Tokyo. There he ran into a tiny hotel which was set in one of the larger buildings that lined the street, with no signboards to guide you there, it was almost hidden away. Kim immediately fell in love with the unusual vibes of the establishment, which was like a home to people from all over the world, unlike the typical homogenous societies in Japan – he was determined to revisit this space.
