The Moral Kiosk is the best place to have a great cup of coffee, get your leather shoes repaired, buy that rare vinyl you've been looking for ages, get your tarot read and watch an intimate gig and chat to Quiet about life in Joburg.
Ever since visiting the exhibition space, a few years ago, I don’t think I have ever missed one single show. It is one of the best exhibition spaces for contemporary art in London, in my opinion. The scale and the light feel right. The environment is not too overwhelming and not too small. In addition, the bookshop has a good selection of catalogues, art books and magazines.
One of a series of rivers in the area, situated in the town of Genga (a 15 minute drive from Montecarotto, close to Grotte di Frasassi). When I was younger I liked to go there and draw, and think about the movement of the elements.

This secret garden, positioned behind San Miniato al Monte, just a few steps away from one of the most beautiful look out points Florence has to offer, Piazzale Michaelangelo. Here is a quaint whimsical hideaway. Coming from my small town roots, completely surrounded by nature; finding this miniature grove was a gold mine. Here, you will find trees, things I immensely love and miss; this slice of nature here gives me a refreshing taste of purity and comfort.

Brett Rubin is a South Africa based photographer & visual artist inspired by the relationship between the structural and the natural, and particularly how this affects people in both urban and pastoral environments.
This forms the focal point of a series titled Auto-Portraits (2011-ongoing), which aims to capture fleeting glimpses into democratic South Africa taken while travelling at high speeds and utilizing the resulting abstraction that occurs as a rhythmic dissonance to forge an exploration into the country’s contemporary landscape.

“Lars’ cinematic photographs follow a timeless aesthetic driven by his search for authenticity. With great practice and understanding of natural light he is looking for that magic moment that is able to touch our minds and hearts. This way Lars creates a broad spectrum of imagery depicting live in all different shades and colours. There is a naturalism in his visual reaction to people, situations or landscapes, which creates the certain strength and universal beauty of his evocative photography. Whether he is working on a large-scale commercial shoot, an intimate portrait session or a personal project, Lars is able to strip away the artificial, get close to the people and capture something real.” (J.C.)
