FACES of MUSTANG.

BY MARCUS BASTEL
@ VOL 11 ON JUN 16, 2016

Marcus Bastel is a London based photographer originally from Germany. He first came to the UK to study Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University, followed by a 2 year program at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. At the time he was very much a multi media artist but now concentrates on photography and the writing of short stories. He has exhibited internationally most recently in Tokyo as part of the Portrait Salon Group exhibition, in London at the 125 Magazine Show and Berlin at Cruise and Callas. His self-published 2010 book BUT WHERE ARE ALL THE PEOPLE won honorable mention at the Photography Book Now competition. His work is perhaps best described as having a filmic quality, like a set getting ready for action. He refers to his work as being still movies, a narrative is implied and a hint of suspense introduced. His photography is represented by Millennium Images, Gallery Stock and Plainpicture. Some of his work can be found at the Diner dotted around London. He is currently working on a project called Faces of Mustang, which aims to connect with the owners of Ford Mustangs around the US, hear stories that make the relationship special and take a portrait of them alongside the legendary car. After 15 visits to the American Southwest and a curiosity to better understand America, he thought that the Mustang community would be a good starting point. America itself is in a state of commotion at present, which makes this a doubly interesting undertaking.

The project will present itself online, as a publication and exhibition, stories and portraits, with added location shots to instill a sense of place and in order to get this rolling is currently running his first kickstarter campaign.

For his writing he is represented by Anoukh Foerg Literary agency in Munich. He works in a supportive role at Central Saint Martins School of Art. Photographer, writer, traveller and inventor of tales, with a big passion for big landscapes, middle of nowhere places and long road trips. And having grown up with cowboys and Indians on the TV those places are more often than not located in the wild west.

How Very Intimate

BY THOMAS KLASSNIK
@ TOTO TOILET ARCHITECTURE ON SEP 16, 2014

Thomas Klassnik gives various examples of what it is to use the toilet. It is a very personal and self serving room. To take the toilet and make it not only personal for yourself, but with others as well. Bringing the outside in, and the toilet to the table, it allows more chance to be intimate with everything and everyone around you, and let the world be intimate with you.

Find Your Place

BY ROZ BARR
@ TOTO TOILET ARCHITECTURE ON SEP 16, 2014

As an architect herself, Roz Barr keeps everything in mind, and plans out all the details that go into each room. This also includes the bathroom. Finding it very important to have control on how you can relax, and discovering your place, is just as important as the toilet and sink itself. To feel relaxed and be free from the stress of the world around you, and being allowed to do your business at your own pace.

Back to Basics

BY ROCK GRAPLIN
@ TOTO TOILET ARCHITECTURE ON SEP 16, 2014

Eat, Pray, and Toilet.

Rock Graplin goes into depth and starts trying to understand the future of the toilet. For him, understanding the past is how to see the future. In a world full of new technology being produced every 5 minutes. And the last place to escape is the toilet, and that should be how our future of the toilet should look like. Simple, clean, and simply earthly.

Adding some fun to your daily bathroom breaks can be fun, or too much that it makes you think, "I can hold it."

Philippa Turrell talks about the various types of famous, glamorous, and breath taking, literally breath taking, toilets in the world.

Kate Malone and Stephen Pey worked together to create a building with hand made glazed tiles and design.
