French Polynesian Portraits http://www.fubiz.net/en/2019/04/16/french-polynesian-portraits-2/ http://www.fubiz.net/en/2019/04/16/french-polynesian-portraits-2/#respond Tue, 16 Apr 2019 13:06:04 +0000 http://www.fubiz.net/?p=916986 During her travels on the islands of French Polynesia, where she has called home for the last nine years, Helene Havard photographed the inhabitants. Portraits that she wanted authentic and far from clichés, in places not really frequented by tourists. “When I photograph people, I try to make them lower their guard” she says. A way to give a natural and deeper result, to show the very essence of the subjects and to transmit the emotions they give off. Facing these photographs, we are tempted to imagine the story behind the piercing glances of these men, women, and children, whom we are here invited to discover.

Endangered Frescoes in Photographs http://www.fubiz.net/en/2019/04/16/endangered-frescoes-in-photographs/ http://www.fubiz.net/en/2019/04/16/endangered-frescoes-in-photographs/#respond Tue, 16 Apr 2019 11:30:37 +0000 http://www.fubiz.net/?p=917047 In his Musée Imaginaire (Imaginary Museum) series, Romain Veillon, a Paris-based photographer, shows the results of a meticulous treasure hunt. And not just any. As his travels went along, he realized that he had photographed several frescoes in worn out places. « The alarming state of these places and the very rapid degradation of these paintings means that soon they will have disappeared forever. I then told myself that it would be interesting to gather them all together in a series as if the spectator was walking in a museum ». Goal achieved. The majority of the images presented come from Italy, France, Portugal, but also Germany or Croatia. To find these incredible frescoes, Romain Veillon does a great job of preparing his travels upstream. “When I discover a place of this type, my first instinct is to try to imagine what stories are hidden behind the vestiges that remain, how the place lived and the reasons that led the place to be deserted by being human » he finished.

Simon Nogueira Strolling around Parisian Roofs http://www.fubiz.net/en/2019/04/15/simon-nogueira-strolling-around-parisian-roofs-2/ http://www.fubiz.net/en/2019/04/15/simon-nogueira-strolling-around-parisian-roofs-2/#respond Mon, 15 Apr 2019 15:41:21 +0000 http://www.fubiz.net/?p=916813 Acrobat, climber, gymnast, stuntman, freerunner… the adjectives are numerous to describe Simon Nogueira, a 25-year-old Parisian.

On his Instagram account, this high-level sportsman travels through the roofs of Paris to satisfy his passion and illustrates his various prowess via some shots… extraordinarily dizzying, that is the least one can say !

Balancing on the roofs of the capital, clinging to a church steeple, suspended below a Parisian crane… Although we are in a cold sweat, merely on seeing his photographs, we can only applaud his artistic and visual practice as well as dangerous and athletic. Hats off !

In the Fantasy World of Franck Bohbot http://www.fubiz.net/en/2019/04/15/in-the-fantasy-world-of-franck-bohbot-2/ http://www.fubiz.net/en/2019/04/15/in-the-fantasy-world-of-franck-bohbot-2/#respond Mon, 15 Apr 2019 14:00:19 +0000 http://www.fubiz.net/?p=916747 In his latest photo series «Forever Young», Franck Bohbot immerses us into a retro universe with pastel colors, worthy of a Wes Anderson movie. These cinematic aesthetics are not surprising considering the French photographer from Los Angeles is also a filmmaker.

“Forever Young” is a series shot during the summer 2018 inside and outside a Water Park in Seignosse south west of France. I Always wanted to make a series related to childhood, slide and holidays, I didn’t plan anything, I am there each year so this summer I decided to capture some moments of life and the feeling of youth. This is the continuity of my series “Jour de fêtes”

While the neat compositions freeze the bodies and suspend time, the color-editing evokes the charm of a bygone era. Two time frames thus coexist: the carefreeness of the present moment and the nostalgia of a past memory.

Unrecognizable faces make it easy to relate to the characters and to feel part of this sunny interlude in the midst of a youth that enjoys the summer. A reference to youth and time that reminds us of the french movie Mektoub My Love, story of a summer in the south of France.

One year ago, we shared his sublime photo series of a vintage vision of Los Angeles that you can find here.

Follow his work on Instagram and Behance.

Impressive Spiral Staircase Roof in Shanghai http://www.fubiz.net/en/2019/04/15/impressive-spiral-staircase-roof-in-shanghai-2/ http://www.fubiz.net/en/2019/04/15/impressive-spiral-staircase-roof-in-shanghai-2/#respond Mon, 15 Apr 2019 11:34:42 +0000 http://www.fubiz.net/?p=916636 As part of an international design competition, the Norwegian architectural firm Snøhetta and the ECADI group were chosen to lead the design and construction of the new Shanghai Opera in China 

His particularity ? An impressive spiral staircase that gives access to the roof. The wide terrace will offer a magnificent view of Shanghai and the Huangpu River beside which the opera will be built. This roof will be available for various events.

According to the architects, the design of the Grand Opera House is inspired by the concept of movement, the leading theme of the entire project. “The helical roof surface evokes an unfolding fan, capturing the dynamism of dance and the human body”. This same concept extends to the entire project: in the halls, in the three auditoriums, and even in its logo which represents an open fan.

The interior of the building will be covered with silk, oak flooring for the acoustics and large bay windows to optimize natural light. The exterior of the building in immaculate white will be a real object of art. “Through its aesthetics, functionality, as well as its cultural and ecological ambition, the Opera House will be an accessible canvas for global visitors, local citizens, and artists to fill with life and culture.

In addition to the work of design and aesthetics, the construction of the building was designed with an ecological approach. The landscaping takes into account respect for the environment and the construction has been studied in order to use less carbon. The construction of the Shanghai Grand Opera should be finished in 2023.
