Kanji words

January 29, 2012

New Years resolutions is a side project from the photographer Irwin Wong.
The main concept was to shoot people a “word” of there own for the new year 2012.
Has Irwin says, “…so I went out on the cold winter streets with a clipboard, a brush and some paper and asked people to write a single kanji that signified their hopes and dreams for the year of the dragon. Lots of people refused, but some were quite obliging, and I have to hand it to Ikuo and Kiko, who after writing their own kanji helped me flag down other people.
If you live in Japan you’ll be well familiar with kanji but for those who have no idea, kanji is the pictograph-style writing system that is used in Japan and wider parts of Asia. The great thing about kanji is that while each single character can have several different meanings, the overall ‘feel’ of the character can be understood very easily. Thus, a writing a single character doesn’t simply mean one thing – the viewer has a very good idea of what the writer is trying to communicate, but also has the leeway to interpret the intended message for themselves.  If it sounds difficult to grasp don’t worry; it is difficult, but it’s also part of the beauty of the system too.”

The Italian coffee company Lavazza has unveiled the 2012 edition of its collectible calendar. Each year, the calendar is shot by a world renowned photographer, but to celebrate the 20th edition, Lavazza used 12 photographers who had shot previous calendars, asking them to create a self-portrait.
The cover of the 2012 calendar features an Ellen von Unwerth photograph of Valerie van der Graaf. The young Dutch model was chosen because this is the 20th year of the Lavazza Calendar and Valerie is also 20 years old.
