Fabroulette (A Collaboration with Paulo Barcelos)

Fabroulette Collaboration from Chris Saunders on Vimeo.

At Fabrica I have met some amazing people, one of them being Paulo Barcelos who is a resident in the Interactive department. He came to me months ago to collaborate with him on one of his projects 'Fabroulette' which is a program which takes a portraits and randomly collages them. The program it self has been recorded and put into a couple of the new Benetton stores across Europe. Eventually the idea is that the program will be triggered by other interactions such as movement and facial recognition. I will keep you all posted on this project and plan to release some of the portraits on the blog soon.

Lolo Veleko & Child

I visited Paris recently and met up with my friend and fellow photographer Lolo Veleko. She has been hiding out in the countryside west of Paris for the last couple of months after giving birth to her first child.

We took a trip to a nearby forest before commencing a short shoot. They where lovely together and it was a honor to take the portrait.

Dazed 2.0 - 'Chains' Stefan Ruiz Vs. Chris Saunders

In the new Dazed & Confused issue (Issue 87, July) I got the opportunity to be part of the new chains feature, where two photographers are asked to have a dialogue through images.

This month we where given the initial theme, 'Heroes,' which we then over a two to three week period sent images back and forth to each other without speaking at all about our motivation and image choices. later we divulged the ideas behind our replies, which lead to a good conversation and idea of how the process worked.

Good one Dazed.

The story will be in the new Colors magazine, coming out next month.
