Erik Madigan Heck, the Crème de la Crème of Fashion Photography.

When he’s not busy on haute couture fashion shoots or photographing Adele for TIME Magazine, Erik Madigan Heck is finding time to write and release his fourth book, Old Future. A favourite amongst renowned names in fashion, including Erdem and Comme des Garçons, Madigan Heck is showing no signs of slowing down as he is at the top of his game in the world of contemporary fashion photography.

Recently released in March 2017, Old Future showcases striking imagery of the photographer’s best work across his blossoming career. Madigan Heck reveals that it was quite a laborious effort to compile the pictures for this book as he narrowed down the final 100 images from 1,000 photographs!

In order to get into the zone on set, it is essential that this photographic legend listens to classical music and uses natural light to keep calm and let the magic happen.

All Things Food with Skye Gyngell

In keeping with London’s Food Month, it is only right to put a spotlight on one of London’s most applauded chefs, Skye Gyngell. This Australian-born chef extraordinaire has already had a flourishing career and continues to exceed herself. Gyngell’s successes so far include being head chef at highly-praised Petersham Nurseries in Richmond, publishing three very successful books and opening an exquisite restaurant, Spring, in Somerset House.

Even though Gyngell’s career is thriving, she is still a humble foodie at heart, revealing some of her favourite spots in London to visit for some delicious cheap eats: ‘I love Damas Gate…they do delicious little feta cheese rolls in the finest filo pastry. You can get five for a pound.’

In traditional British style, Gyngell also enjoys sampling some local grub and taking some down time at her local watering hole; ‘I live off Uxbridge Road, it’s full of incredible Middle-Eastern shops – There’s also a pub there called ‘The Anglesey’ it’s just a really great neighbourhood pub.’

Finally, the celebrated cook reveals her secret as to what makes a good chef: ‘I think you need a kind of energy. And to work quite well under pressure, to enjoy pressure.’

The Evolution of Alberto Giacometti at Tate Modern

Brace yourself for the evocative artwork by master sculptor, Alberto Giacometti, at Tate Modern this summer. Tate Modern is proud to be showcasing the work of one of the world’s most noteworthy artists in Surrealism, presenting over 250 masterpieces, some of which have never been unveiled to the public before.

Born in 1901 in the blissful Swiss Alps, Giacometti decided to pursue his artistic passion and move to Paris at the tender age of 21. He was won over by the artistic movements of Surrealism and Cubism and eventually joined the likes of Picasso as a renowned global artist.

Running until September 10th 2017, you can have the chance to marvel at the evolution of Giacometti’s career and observe some of his most famous pieces, including the haunting ‘Walking Man’ and the legendary ‘Spoon Woman.’
