Checkout this interview with the Danish graphic designer, Emil Kozak, who lives in Barcelona. I have always being a big fan of his work and photography as well.
This interview was done during the Blanc Festival, November 2011 in Barcelona, where he explains the differences between Danish and Spanish design, as well as the relationship between art and skating. He also talks to us about the books he’s published with Index Book, “One Day” and “Mid-Fi.”
A new short video from filmmaker Callum Preston titled “Why Mono?” aims to find out what it is about black and white that still attracts photographers, publishers and painters alike. Speaking in the video, private art collector Andrew King says that black and white art somehow “goes straight to the point,” avoiding the unnecessary distractions that colour can sometimes bring. Other speakers include photographer Nicole Reed, street artist Rone, and skateboard photographer Steve Gourlay.
