We’re beyond thrilled to announce the addition of Justin Fantl to the Giant family! After searching for just the right still life photographer, we finally found him!! Justin’s enthusiasm spills onto his canvas in still lifes that capture a sense of wonder and humor. A perpetual observer and explorer, he is equally at home in the studio and outdoors. Whether seeking or constructing there is often a nod to the surreal and a careful play of color and composition at the root of his imagery – whether it’s food, sportswear, fashion, tech, hardware, animals, paper, random objects or beautiful landscapes. If you look closely there are imperfections in the work and in some ways it’s those things that make the images feel a bit more real or tangible. A native of New Hampshire, Justin splits his time between LA and NYC. Here’s to creating more awesome stuff together! Welcome, Justin!!
Several weeks per year, Klaus Thymann does pro bono work for causes that he thinks are important. The latest project was done in collaboration with BBH London and Grupo Ruas e Praças, a Brazilian NGO based in Recife, Brazil. Recipe is soon to become a World Cup host city, however it’s also home to hundreds of homeless children who live on the streets exposed to drugs, gangs, prostitution, and violence. Despite the severity of the situation, the campaign titled, ‘Life In The Streets,’ aims to focus on the positive. Shot over 4 days with real street kids, Klaus captured both print and a short documentary to raise awareness of the issue and the great work that the Grupo Ruas e Praças is doing to make things better. By using tailored arts & cultural projects, they help to empower these kids while also giving them love and support to help them build positive lives off the streets. Please take some time to check it out!
