Michel Rajkovic – Magical moments

Michel Rajkovic born in France and living at Asnieres-sur-seine near Paris. He started photography in 2000 with a digital compact. The discovery of the long exposure technique and the black & white technique was a real revelation for him. These techniques best fits his sensitivity for many reasons: he’s sensitive to the mood, to the light, he always takes the time to feel the place where he’s at. He’s an eternal dreamer and the long exposure technique allows him to capture a calm and imaginary world. The minimalist side allows us to open a door to the imagination because it gives the viewer the freedom to make their own history, their own interpretation.

Michel likes the concept of infinity in a waterscape that opens a door to our imagination. Besides, he loves the early morning mood when he’s alone on the beach feeling the air, the sea. These are magical moments.

I find his work inspiring because i love the minimalist simplicity and the magic moments of the early mornings. Truly magnificent work….

Cute animated video for Sweet Tooth’s “Everybody Wants to be in Love”

Everbody wants to be in love Sweet Tooth are a London-based duo consisting of chanteuse Fleurtini and producer Gavin Hammond. Their sound is an elegant cocktail of film-noir jazz, underground electronica and retro guitar pop. Without missing a beat, they combine electro-swing, 1950s lounge, Brixton dub, Hollywood glamour, comic book culture and kitsch sci-fi soundtracks.

The video for their first single “Everybody wants to be in love” was shot by David Packer of Sheep Films UK. It was made by printing a number of beautiful illustrations that Aaron Bevan-Bailey had drawn for the band onto pieces of card. Packer cut them out and arranged them on a table with pieces of wire to hold them up. He then used a copy stand and digital camera to film the camera moves, using the ruler on the stand to move the camera a millimetre at a time. Sometimes he would film the camera move twice with different lighting set ups and then fade between them in after effects.

The result is truely beautiful and perfectly resembles the band’s film noir style!
