Escapes From Paradise

At Dossier, we’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Elle Muliarchyk a number of times on fashion editorials. Each time, the result has been a complex and highly saturated tale—both in color and character. So when Elle wrote me with news of her latest project, “Escapes from Paradise,” with a subject line reading: My most [...]

Jacmel

Jacmel is a city of 40,000 people on the southern coast of Haiti. It has been tentatively accepted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with buildings dating from the early 1900′s, but in more modern times it has been known for its laid-back beach vibe (including surfing) and vibrant arts scene. Although damaged by the [...]

Euromen In Real Life

The street style trend is something I always tend to think about in quotation marks. I just don’t, you know, “get” it. The very idea that some random body in an expensive number walking down the street should be regarded as some sort of influencer is a little too Warholian-utilitarian for me. At the same, [...]

Reclaiming Bentley

Bentley’s Global Mulsanne Drive is a back-roads tour of England’s historic countryside from behind the wheel of Bentley’s Grand-Tourer flagship, the Mulsanne (pronounced Mul-saan). Dossier was invited to take part by our friends at Syndicate Media, along with several other journalists from comparably successful but definitively independent, niche publications. The unreasonably extravagant itinerary included tea at the [...]

Skydive from Space

On Sunday, Felix Baumgartner, an Austrian daredevil (what an amazing job title, “daredevil”) broke the record for the highest skydive when he jumped from a capsule 24 miles high, at the edge of space. Wearing a specially pressurized suit, he reached a top speed of 834 miles per hour, breaking the sound barrier. The video [...]

Martina Hoogland Ivanow In Conversation

When I called photographer Martina Hoogland Ivanow in Stockholm to discuss her upcoming exhibition Far Too Close (which opened October 11 at the Gallery at Hermès), I was sitting outside of the public library in Rathdrum, Idaho, population 6,969. In a quest to gain perspective on my New York City-based life, I had sought out [...]

It’s a Friends, Friends of Friends, and Family Affair

Starting September 21 (today), founders and fellow up-staters, Jon Santos of Common Space Studio and artist Peter Coffin, will host an experiential three-day event at Camp Lakota, in Wurtsboro, NY. Usually a sleep-away summer camp for kids, Camp Lakota’s slogan is,”Where Friendships Begin!” and there is no doubt many adult ones will be forged while participating in the creative, educational, and gastronomical [...]

East End Art

There is so much good art in the Hamptons this summer, you have no excuse not to go check it all out. Labor Day might be just around the corner, but there is plenty of time to see some of the excellent exhibitions and events going on across the East End of Long Island. For [...]

Other Travel In Conversation

Other Travel is a Kickstarter-funded project by artists Hayden Dunham and Meriem Bennani. A collaborative piece at its core, Other Travel is based on the idea that there is another dimension mirroring ours—the Other World—in which exists each human’s corresponding “Other.” Hayden and Meriem act as mediums between our world and the Other World, delivering [...]

Ben Pier’s Teenage Teeth

Ben Pier is a photographer who captures moments of youth and portraits of the young at heart in his recently published collection TEENAGE TEETH. Shot over the past decade, Ben’s photographs are an honest ode to sloppy ink jobs, to being drunk and crushing, to bedrooms that feel like fish tanks and that weird girl [...]
