Five days ago, Mikael Kennedy and Sean Sullivan completed the 6,288 mile, 29 day trip, they call Ramblers Bone. Both NY based photographers and veteran travelers of American highways, Kennedy and Sullivan set loose early April, beginning in Los Angeles, CA.

Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopedia Exhibition15/05/2012
The Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopedia, published in three volumes by FUEL, is a comprehensive look into the violent and fantastic world of prison tattoos. The volumes are made up of the work of Russian prison guard, Danzig Baldaev, and the drawings of tattoos he made between 1948 - 1986. Baldaev would make detailed notes of each tattoo and then reproduce them in his St. Petersburg flat - an exercise that resulted in an archive of 739 original sheets of drawings.

Verbal is as unique as it gets, whether its music or fashion everyone in Japan knows the name Verbal. If you were one of the very few to get your hands on the highly limited debut from M-Flo you would have realised it was a sign of things to come. Further down the line he worked together with NIGO and the Teriyaki Boys which perhaps gave him the necessary insight into music on a global scale. This balanced together with M-Flo, he has since become a well known figure in clubs all over Japan, DJing along with his wife Yoon, and saying this couple stands out is an understatement.
