Ami Sioux Interview
Beautiful words, beautiful images
I had always wondered why I was so drawn to Ami Sioux's work and after speaking with her I realized it is the joy and true passion she has for her work that truly demands your attention. Originally from California and currently based in Paris, Ami's incredible portraits and fashion work can be seen gracing the pages of Self Service, i-D magazine, Vogue Paris and the like. I was lucky enough to catch up with Ami for a chat to talk life, music, the photographic dance and her first two books Paris 48°49N and Reykjavik 64°08N.

Behind the Scenes at the TWA Flight Center, JFK Airport19/07/2012
Originally opened in 1962, the TWA Flight Center at John F. Kennedy Airport is a brilliant - and sadly, often overlooked - piece of architecture, designed by Eero Saarinen. One of his last works, completed posthumously, the TWA Flight Center was happily saved from the wrecking ball in 2003 by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The lines, curves and flow of the design provide a completely unique experience for visitors, one which can have the effect of transporting one to a different time - a time when the aviation industry was proud, optimisitic and exclusive.
