Having grown up in New-Zealand, Ben started taking pictures skateboarding as a teen. After moving to Melbourne, he decided to raise the stakes and go for photography full time. He’s been travelling the world ever since, working for monoliths such as Nike and Adidas as well as independent brands and an array of magazines. He’s also one of the driving forces behind Good Sport magazine and a dedicated runner himself. We spent a fun Spring day with him in Amsterdam, where he currently resides.
On one of those rare sunny Spring days, we found ourselves in the best company with Koen, Charles and Clara. A fabulous young girl and the two most important men in her life. We know very well that every family has its own dynamic and were curious to hear their take on things, luckily Charles answered our questions with a broad smile.
Venice is obviously renowned for its canals and Piazza San Marco, but it’s also known as “the city of love” by tourists from all over the world. This time around we wanted to see the city from the inside, from a local family’s perspective. That’s why we decided to meet up with Mara and Matteo, a couple of entrepreneurs in the world of wine and art.
When we were working on our Atlas campaign in Morocco, we knew the person with the right words and the right tone of voice could be found close by, in Brussels. Meet the man behind the ATLAS poem : Guido L Z.
Bonjour Georges is one of our favorite Instagram accounts going. The person behind it is Cristina, a Brussels-based young mother of 3 adorable kids, with a 4th on the way. She certainly has a way with pictures and words; always honest, often funny, sometimes bittersweet.
In a world full of illustrators and graphic designers, it takes something special to stand out. Enter Berlin-based art director, designer and illustrator Florian Schommer, who insists on keeping things fresh and challenging for both himself and his clientele.
Located in the town of Huy, MUR is more than just a place to get coffee or grab a quick lunch. It aspires to be a vital part of a community built around cycling, bringing people together. It’s also the unlikely love child of Edward and Bernard, both musicians and cyclists, yet one’s from the North of England while the other was born and raised in Huy.
As you might already know, we love handcrafted products. One of our absolute favorite brands in the genre is Vadi Jewels, created back in 2010 by Vadine Sister, an old friend of ours. She offers unique jewelry, 100% made in France. We have been working with her for years now, she has even made some exclusive creations for Bellerose.
Passionate and perfectionistic, Paulin Leuridan isn’t a man of compromises. He only works with locally produced organic flour and everything you see when you set foot in Pain Paulin – his bakery – is there because he wanted it there. The result is as atypical as the project itself. A high-quality bakery, in which work ethic is everything, located in Petit-Piquey.
