Norse Notes

October 9, 2015 § Leave a comment


The Norwegen government held a design contest in the spring of 2014 for new banknotes. The motif was simply “The Sea.” Two winners were announced with a proposal by The Metric System entitled Norwegian Living Space and Snøhetta‘s Beauty of Boundaries. Norge Bank decided that the Snøhetta’s pixel motifs will be the foundation for the back of the notes, while The Metric System’s design incorporating ocean scenes will be on the front. The first of the new notes will be issued in 2017.

Dutch fine art painter Alexandra Klimas is worried about what you eat and how what you eat is treated. Seeing cows out in the fields is becoming increasingly rare with the factory farming technique of keeping the cows inside all the time. Ditto with chickens, who often have never seen a blade of grass.


“We live in a world where a child does not know where milk comes from. “Out of a pack” or “out of the shop” would be their answer. Long ago, in the Netherlands you could see a lot of pigs outside. This is already not the case anymore. Many children do not even know what they look like. This is also happening to the cows. You get more and more mega farms where cows are no longer allowed outside to graze. If people choose to buy meat/milk/butter/eggs, then they should also be responsible for giving the animals a better life. In the Netherlands, for example, you can choose what milk you want to buy. Milk from cows that were allowed outside or milk from cows that are always inside. Becoming aware of what you eat and drink in this throwaway society is important.”

Italianate Castle

October 7, 2015 § Leave a comment




Martino Zegwaard is an explorer of lost and abandoned places, especially those such as the Italian castle shown in these photographs at a place he has decided to call Castello di S in order to protect it’s anonymity.

He describes the shoot in an interview:

“The main difficulty of the shoot was the fact that we were one of the first to visit the castle and there were wild stories about an alarm, mafia connected security, and so on and so on. After we pushed each other through a small hole in the wall at the side of the castle at 5 o’clock in the morning, we had to wait for the sun to come up, be careful not to trigger the alarm (which was there), and we had to be as stealth as we possibly could be. The light conditions were very poor and I have to say, this isn’t my best work. Since that time I’ve upgraded my gear dramatically, now using a level, better camera, better lenses, better tripod, better post-processing software and skills. Photoshopping these images now made me realize how much I’ve grown as a photographer since then.” via My Modern Met
