Rankin: From Cheeky to South Africa

We all know and love photographer Rankin. Whether we love him for this or that may just be one or two reasons. Well, you’re about to be introduced to reason # 3.

Like Micheal Poliza, Rankin has recently traveled to South Africa to do what he does best.

And look what he brought us back:

It’s certainly impressive when an artist can immerse himself across different realms of photography. Can you believe the same man who captured the images above is capable of this:

But if  you prefer wonderful wildlife and landscape photography, check out Michael Poliza’s South Africa.

The photo above is the ever-so-beautiful work of Russell James. More photos from his new self-titled book can be found here. Enjoy! (We know you will…)

About Russell James:

“One of the world’s top photographers, Russell James hails from Western Australia. Strongly idiosyncratic, his work is heavily influenced by his homeland’s open landscapes and extraordinary light. Dream-like images combine the natural elements of air, sun, earth and water. Applauded for his sexy nudes, exuberant fashion spreads, as well as distinctive portraiture, his trademark style is instantly recognizable. Whether capturing the daily lives of Australia’s aboriginal peoples, or crafting a luxury advertising campaign, this consummate professional leaves nothing to chance…

Russell James’s work has appeared in many influential magazines such as Vogue, Marie Claire and GQ.  In particular, his images in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition have drawn great acclaim. He has also created advertising campaigns for world-class clients such as Victoria’s Secret.”

The Trump Soho: Luxury in NYC!

“It is gospel in the hospitality industry that the small stuff matters. The curve of the door knob, the heft of a closet hanger and a coffee mug that’s just the right size can go a long way in convincing a hotel guest to become a regular customer.”

The National Post outlines a few plushy hotels of NYC and gives us a new definition of luxury in this article.

Of the hotels mentioned, one struck us as particularly appealing– the new Trump Soho of NYC:

With its beds adorned with Bellino Italian linens and Italian marble 5-fixture baths, the Trump is said to be quite a precious place…

And if you’re into luxury nightlife, check out the “masculine, warm and ultra sexy” bar/lounge– Kastel — a new addition to the Trump:

Since we’re so keen on luxury, we also wanted to share with you one of our favorite books:

Russell James Makes Everyone Smile :)

Hollywood Life tells us that Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson apparently have trouble smiling in photographs.

Who better to solve this problem than the talented photog Russell James?

“We know it’s hard for Twilight couple Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson to smile in photographs, but we’ve found a way to break their serious streak — send expert fashion and celebrity photographer Russell James after them!”

Heidi Klum Sans Makeup, Sans Clothing.

Seems this model doesn’t like to wear much of anything; First this wonderful Rankin photography book showcases completely nude photographs.

Now, she’s going bare-faced.

Nice! So…what else will she go without?…can’t fathom a bald Klum…

The World Cup 2010: Watch Futbol, Take a Safari Tour!

So, you’re going to the World Cup in South Africa in a couple of weeks? Well, lucky you!

Aside from the international crowd, the cheering, the fights, and most importantly the matches, what will else can you feast your eyes on?

How’s ’bout a South African Safari tour?

“During a few hours’ drive from World Cup host city Cape Town through to Simon’s Town and down to the Cape of Good Hope, you can see penguins — yes, penguins — and possibly some baboons and ostrich.”

Although you may want to be careful around the baboons, who have been known to steal from tourists…

We imagine, with so much wondrous wildlife and warm weather, that these tours must be breath-taking:
