The Last Japanese Mermaids 

For nearly two thousand years, Japanese women living in coastal fishing villages made a remarkable livelihood hunting the ocean for oysters and abalone, a sea snail that produces pearls. They are known as Ama. The few women left still make their living by filling their lungs with air and diving for long periods of time deep into the Pacific ocean, with nothing more than a mask and flippers.

In the mid 20th century, Iwase Yoshiyuki returned to the fishing village where he grew up and photographed these women when the unusual profession was still very much alive. After graduating from law school, Yoshiyuki had been given an early Kodak camera and found himself drawn to the ancient tradition of the ama divers in his hometown. His photographs are thought to be the only comprehensive documentation of the near-extinct tradition in existence

Sufjan Stevens - The Upper Peninsula

(via beneath-a-lonely-place)


When you feel perpetually unmotivated, you start questioning your existence in an unhealthy way; everything becomes a pseudo intellectual question you have no interest in responding whatsoever. This whole process becomes your very skin and it does not merely affect you; it actually defines you. So, you see yourself as a shadowy figure unworthy of developing interest, unworthy of wondering about the world - profoundly unworthy in every sense and deeply absent in your very presence.
— Ingmar Bergman (via sullenmoons)

Fiber optic dress at Richard Nicoll Spring/Summer 2015

For spring, British designer Richard Nicoll teamed up with Disney to create a collection inspired by Tinkerbell. The fairy figure could be seen throughout the collection in the form of mirrored cutouts hanging off of holographic bags, however, it was Nicoll’s opening slip dress that stole the show.
Created in collaboration with London-based fashion and technology company Studio XO, the dress was made from a fiber optic fabric activated by high intensity LEDs tailored within it. The result was a delicate, fairy-like glow.
“It created a magical pixie dust effect down the catwalk,” said Matthew Drinkwater, head of the Fashion Innovation Agency, which brought Richard Nicoll, Studio XO and Disney together. “It was imperative for Richard that what went down the catwalk was ‘fashion’ not ‘tech.’ The gasps were audible as the dress appeared, it was a huge moment for fashion technology. We’d built something that was truly desirable.”
