KLAUS @THYMANN – KIRUNA, SWEDEN – COLLAPSING INTO THE EARTH

Always the inquisitive explorer, Klaus Thymann is documenting another ineresting story. This project, similar to Project Pressure, is a reflection of his interest in mapping and the passage of time across landscapes and communities. For more than a hundred years, the town of Kiruna, Sweden’s northernmost settlement, has had iron extracted from the nearby mine and now the town is at risk of collapsing into the earth!

Located 87 miles inside the Arctic Circle, Kiruna will be moved piece by piece to a new location 2.5 miles to the south. Hundreds of families from the town of 20,000 along with buildings like the town hall and century-old wooden church will be taken apart, loaded on to flat bed trucks, and reassembled at the new site.

Over the next decade, Klaus plans to visit Kiruna numerous times to document the changes from both a geographical and human perspective. Check out his website for updates!

JUSTIN FANTL – GOLF DIGEST – PUTTERS

Justin Fantl had the pleasure of working with Christian Ioos at Golf Digest on this project. He’s the son of legendary photographer, Walter Ioss. He essentially sent over the putters, told him about the feature, and said go for it – “Shoot it how you see it.” Bam – putters have never looked so good!

Oh, and if you haven’t checked out Justin’s personal website lately – take a look! It’s brand new & looking mighty nice!!
