The New Vegetarian
New year, new me - or something along those lines. We're very excited about The New Vegetarian by Alice Hart, a modern cookbook covering a wide range of nourishing vegetarian food, with taste and enjoyment in mind. We're currently sharing the recipes round the studio and so far we're very impressed.
The Fake Tit Fund
In 2016 Isabel Ulatowski got interested in how the treatment plan for breast cancer included follow-up aesthetic decisions that patients need to decide and deal with. Her aim was to explore the reality of reconstruction following breast cancer treatment, documenting the physical and emotional process of healing and adapting to a new identity and new breasts. The realisation that a part of a person's identity could be removed by disease and reconstructed by choice, inspired The Fake Tit Fund. Through the archive of submitted and found images, she seeks to offer a sense of support to those dealing with this difficult, and often very private transition.
