Adrian de Sa Garces

"I was born in Walvis Bay, Namibia – My father still lives up there so I visit him as often as i can. Between spending time with him and my younger siblings, I enjoy exploring the town I grew up in and revisiting locations I have memories of. I find the place very interesting in that many of the locations I revisit haven’t really changed much over the last 20 years, so it’s like pointing my camera into the past. A particular aspect of shooting in Walvis Bay that appeals to me, is the wide barren salt roads and their light-toned pavements. Exploring a neighbourhood, I feel able to isolate a point of interest without the clutter of foliage and cars. This visual simplicity seems to mimic the surrounding desert which very much speaks to my sensibility. Henry Wessel’s says “part of the process of photographing is being receptive. To move through the physical world and photograph everything that catches your eye” In a place like Walvisbay and Namibia, it’s difficult not to be receptive – I never stop taking pictures while I’m there, because everything seems to catch my eye."

Fort Standard

Fort Standard is a contemporary Industrial Design studio founded by Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings. Their collaborative work is an ever-evolving dialog between their unique perspectives and their shared approach to progressive design thinking. Working primarily in long lasting natural materials, their approach to design is often geared towards using traditional production methods in innovative ways. Having developed a distinct form language rooted in simplicity and functionality, their attention to detail, connections and materiality generate value through design in what Buntain and Collings describe as a “warm-contemporary” aesthetic.
