Guess where Mikkel Vang and I are at the moment? Yes just another day photographing the book and yes I'm still hiding my banged up face. Three locations to shoot today and then on the Eurostar to London.
Antwerp over and out... Mikkel and I have finished photographing our locations in Antwerp. I have never been there before but wow what a beautiful city. I would love to come back here.
However, I did have a little accident in Antwerp. Memories me stumbling in the middle of the street, hands in pockets, face first on the road. Ouch... Result, black eye, grazed face, massive swollen lips. Not my best look. This is me in one of our cool Antwerp homes hiding my face. I can't show you because it will gross you out. It is pretty hard going into a homeowners house with this banged up face.

A couple of weeks ago I got to speak at my first Pecha Kuchu in Sydney, Australia. I was the last to speak which meant with no dinner, two beers mixed with nerves and alcohol I was slightly tipsy... Um it wasn't my proudest moment. But then I thought about the space, Super Deluxe where Pechu Kuchu originated in Tokyo. Co-founder, Mark Dytham, from the TED like talks gave me a personal tour when I was in Tokyo for the Heineken Open Design Explorations. The interiors were temporary, fun and had an easy going feel. So me having a good time, being a little tipsy and making people laugh suited the environment the talks begun.
From the street front we walked down a kitch wallpaper stairwell
The warehouse-style-club has a derelict shop feel about it but the folk inside are sporting avant-gard outfits.
The space is used for dancing and thinking
|Young local video artists had a craft bag of goodies they put under a camera and used a video mixer to create inspiring images projected onto the wall|
This is me standing in front of the projected ceramic bird. I'm wearing a Cos shirt my new fave high-street fashion brand
Avant Garde womens toilets are not quiet how I would describe them but was worth a visit
To find the smiley face toilet rolls.
The sinks were salvaged from an old school. Check out those taps.
If you go to Tokyo make sure you go and visit Super Deluxe. It was my favourite club visit.
