Anna Prudhomme: How did it first come to your mind to paint your photographs?

Elizabeth Lennard: When I was in my late teens I attended the San Francisco Art Institute in California. It was very much the purist school of black and white photography where you studied Ansel Adams, the zone system, etc … Which I was slightly rebelling against - but as it was an art school, so I wasn't the only one who started to sort of “attack” black and white photographs.

Pourquoi les Tiktokeurs trustent les défilés ?

Cette saison, la Fashion Week de New York a certainement été l’une des plus ratée que l’on n’ait jamais vue. Bien que rarement glorieuse, elle a été marquée par un nombre de faux pas embarrassants. Samedi, une Tiktokeuse connue uniquement pour être le sosie d’Ariana Grande, peinait à faire un aller-retour sur le runway, lundi un mec vêtu d’un rideau de douche en plastique tapait l’incruste avant d’être expulsé par la sécurité, tandis que mercredi, un humoriste portant des ailes d’ange a simulé u

Que ce soit sur les runway de la fashion week, aux pieds des athlètes, ou pour protéger les soldats ukrainiens des mines russes, les chaussures en impressions 3D sont aujourd’hui un des tournants technologiques les plus prometteurs.
