GANGSTERS DOODLE

We take a look inside the world of Post-It Note Illustrator turned author Marlon Sassy. The Vancouver based artist has grown a considerable following for his hip-hop culture inspired “doodles,” and with his first book under his belt, it seems like things are only going up for our friend Marlon.

PHOTOGRAPHY BY RICHARD MOSSE

It’s crazy how a few snapshots can paint a detailed picture of a place. From everything I hear, the Eastern Congo is a pretty hectic place. Dealing with the fallout from the worst human conflict since World War II can’t be easy. In his latest collection, Quick, photographer Richard Mosse gives us a glimpse of military life in the Eastern Congo, along with some gorgeous shots of the surrounding landscape. Taking a novel approach, Mosse used Kodak Aerochrome infrared film to capture the scenes below, giving the images their distinctive pink tint. So no, they’re not photoshopped, in case you were wondering. Pretty impressive.
