A heartbreaking work of staggering genius.

Working out of Benetton’s creative lab, Fabrica, photographer James Mollison was asked to create work that engaged with children’s rights. From the get, Mollison didn’t want to limit the scope to “needy children in the developing world;” he decided the photo essay would include “children in all kinds of different circumstances.”
He wanted to address the “complex situations and social issues affecting children,” and wound up thinking back on his own childhood. In doing so, he remembered how significant his bedroom was– how it reflected his own identity. Thus, Where Children Sleep became the focus of his project.

Netherlands’ Bloemenveiling Aalsmeer – the world’s largest flower auction – is a place you should probably never take your girlfriend to.
The flower industry in Netherlands' is a-bloomin. Here's proof:
Bloemenveiling Aalsmeer, the home of the world's largest flower auction, is also the world's largest trade building – about the size of 400 football fields – and the fourth largest building in the world by floor space.
Whereas most warehouses are stocked with drab cardboard boxes against a background of muted industrial shades, a peek inside of Bloemenveiling Aalsmeer shows a space brimming with a lush spectrum of flowers representing 20,000 different varieties of flowers and plants.
Distilling nature with Juniper Ridge.
We all have one of those friends we've known for years, but for whatever reason we've never been to their place before. Not because we fear they might have some bizarre toy collection worthy of its own My Strange Addiction special, but because they live just far enough outside town that it's easier to meet in the middle.
We've known the guys over at Juniper Ridge for years now, and after countless plan changes, we finally made it across the bridge to their Oakland headquarters to get a peek at how they capture the essence of the mountains in their Cabin Sprays.

Henry Hargreaves’ latest photo series shows what musicians eat and drink backstage.
Frank Sinatra: One bottle each: Absolute, Jack Daniel’s, Chivas Regal, Courvoisier, Beefeater Gin, white wine, red wine. Twenty-four chilled jumbo shrimp, Life Savers, cough drops.
Henry Hargreaves has a nose for the provocative. The first time we came across the New Zealand-born, Brooklyn-based photographer, he was sharing a project on Vice that captured the last meals of notorious serail killers. Thankfully, his latest project – Band Riders – is lighter fare.
Sand shark fetuses devour their brothers and sisters in the womb. It gets better (or worse).
In 1982, veteran shark researcher Stewart Springer was dissecting a dead sand shark when upon reaching into one of the shark's birth canals, he was – wait for it – bit by the fetus. And yet this is only the third most shocking fact in this post.
Diversions worth your while.

Incredible views to be had all along the watcher tower in Brooklyn. Coolest apartment ever?
Oh, Brooklyn. You would.
Situated at One Main Street in Brooklyn's increasingly coveted DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) district, the ClockTower Building was originally built in 1915 as a cardboard box factory, and at the time of its construction, was the was the largest cast-concrete building in the United States.
However, like the rest of DUMBO, the ClockTower Building fell into disrepair until it was purchased by a developer in 1982 who converted the building into more than 120 luxury condominiums. The top four floors of the building remained untouched until a few years ago, when the developer decided to turn the ClockTower penthouse into a property worthy of an Esquire Apartment nomination:
Rocks are on the move in California’s Death Valley.
This story belongs in the Twilight Zone of natural phenomena.
The so-called sailing stones, sliding stones, or moving rocks travel across the desert floor of the Racetrack Playa in California's Death Valley, leaving trails of varying lengths in the otherwise undisturbed sand in their wake. How, you ask? No one really knows. Exactly how the stones – ranging from small weighing as much as 700 pounds – manage to get from one place to another is the subject of continued debate and speculation. Sailing stones are undocumented anywhere outside of Death Valley.
We recently imported some wool ties from Italy that were made in the 1950s. Here’s the backstory.
A couple of months ago, Lynn over at Archival Clothing introduced us to a lady in Italy (a good start) who had recently discovered hundreds of wool ties from the 1950s in the basement of a family-owned garment factory near Milan that sews for some of the top labels in the world.
The factory is the quintessential Italian family-owned business, where the parents and children all work together using machinery that their parents and grandparents built, and where a few boxes of ties lost are just a few grains lost in the sands of time. At some point in the 1950s, these skinny wool ties where cleaved from the herd and sat in a cellar for over 60 years until our contact in Italy discovered them.
