Riitta Ikonen uses humour, whimsy and beautiful design to look at social and environmental issues. Lovely, thoughtful work – her website is inspiring.
Artist, writer and now street librarian Laura Moulton runs the amazing Street Books project in Portland. Her library cart folds into a compact box that she pedal-pushes around town to loan out books to people on the streets. It reminds me of the library bus that used to come to a parking lot in a suburb on the outskirts of Toronto where I lived when I was nine years old. I loved that bus – waited for it in the parking lot every week. Whenever I climbed into the bus, I remember feeling huge anticipation and gratitude. Thanks to librarian and friend Lee Anne for sending this my way.
An image from Montreal photographer Isabelle Hayeur’s ongoing project Underworlds. I love the quality of the images she captures by partially submerging her camera in murky waters.
