Kinfolk magazine on generation grey_a life inspiration story

We are a society that focuses on eternal youth. Stay young, look even younger and getting older is in a way not a desired option.  But times are changing. People all over the world are getting older, but also healthier, fitter and very active.Forget all the stereotypes about people over 60. Flat Agers (that’s how they are called) of the future aren’t defined by their age, they’re moved by their interests, passions and ambitions, just like everyone else. It’s great to see how more and more media are picking up this trend, and show older people as they are, beautiful, active and with loads of personality and (some times) wisdom.

We are a society that focuses on eternal youth. Stay young, look even younger and getting older is in a way not a desired option. But times are changing. People all over the world are getting older, but also healthier, fitter and very active. Forget all the stereotypes about people over 60. Flat Agers (that’s how they are called) of the future aren’t defined by their age, they’re moved by their interests, passions and ambitions, just like everyone else. It’s great to see how more and more media are picking up this trend, and show older people as they are, beautiful, active and with loads of personality and (some times) wisdom. One of my favorite magazines, Kinfolk explored in Nr°10 how the older folks in our lives can teach us how to live more fully and how to embrace each new candle on our cake with style and grace. As some anonymous old chap once said, “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” While many magazines pressure readers to …

Nr°43_IMAGE OF THE DAY

(The) Jane is dressing herself.   Visiting the website of the soon-to-be-open_long-expected Antwerp restaurant of star chef Sergio Herman and Nick Bril, you are entertained by a strange moving swirl, or shall I say by fairy dust sparklings on the home page. The Jane (that will be the name of Sergio’s restaurant) is been constructed at this very moment in a magnificent chapel, shown on a black & white picture, the background of the fairy dust animation.   This animation is an art project called “Reversed Striptease” by Rahi Rezvani. When the website just launched in November 2013, I took this screenshot, intrigued by the full frontal naked ‘Jane’ surrounded by builders scaffolding. At that moment you don’t realize Jane was going to be transformed.  Off course she does.   So today, checking out the waiting list for reservations (the Jane opens March 25 th and is already fully booked for the next 3 months), there she was again: Jane, now wearing underwear, and after some extra sparklings, a small part of her dress or …

Brand new food magazine Brother_a life inspiration story

When a new magazine hits the net or the stores, I’m always curious to find out more. I’m a true magazine addict and the more niche tittles are starting up, the happier I get! A few days ago I discovered a brand new food magazine straight from the US. A food magazine you think. Another glossy mag filled with artfully styled food photographs, molecular based recipes and hard to get niche ingredients? NOP. The guys (Ryan Smith, Andrew Thomas Lee, Alvin Diec, and Wyatt Williams) behind Brother , a quarterly journal on food bring their stories with a touching honesty and a nose-to-tail approach to the matter. This single-topic food magazine brings no frill stories on what we eat, following one item per issue on its journey to our plate. The food photography in Brother is cool, natural and not styled. They do bring beautiful pictures of food in general, the people behind the food preparing business but there not afraid of showing the bloody details of a live slaughter moment, the cleaning of the …
