GoSee Tip : between street merchants and camel drivers. Egypt in the mirror of timelessness. Loïc Bréard takes us on a journey into the past. Exhibition in Paris, book in the pipelines

Over the past years Loic Bréard has been exploring the land of the Nile like the early pioneers of photography on countless journeys from Alexandria to Cairo and the Luxor Temple, to Karnak to the little Nubian villages south of Assuan. His analogue black and white snapshots seem to be from a different time. They look like vintage shots, not something that was photographed recently. They act as mirrors of history and tradition, they expose the core of an ancient civilisation.

Do the current political developments Egypt affect your photos? “I have made a conscious decision not to document the current political situation. After all I am not a classic photo journalist”, Loic tells GoSee. “I am interested in the timeless, the immortal, hundreds of years worth of tradition, the way history always repeats itself, not just in everyday life, but also etched and traced in people’s faces.”

With open eyes and his camera at hand Loic Bréard roams the streets, capturing everyday moments. The bazaar with its sellers and buyers, street merchants, the camel drivers, the farmer and his women whose faces are marked by the stresses of life – these are all figures, their clothing and habitus, that may well have fascinated the first photographers in the 19th century. Photography pioneers such as Félix Bonfils ...

CANNES LIONS 2014 DIRECT – explained by Jury Member Kai Roeffen, CD and CEO of thjnk Düsseldorf agency, on selected works, GoSee exclusive and his 'Hello GoSee!'

When the judges announce their decisions at the Cannes Lions press conference in the early morning hours, it always appears to be a highly agreeable operation. On a very personal tour of the exhibition of winners in the DIRECT category, Kai Röffen, CD and CEO of thjnk agency, Düsseldorf explained what goes on beforehand - a full day of viewing creative work, the process of elimination, a night long of discussion – and all this from the various opinions held by creatives from all over the world.

We caught up with Kai on the morning after the press conference – on the beach of course. Since the winners were only to be announced that evening at the gala, the winning works were under the utmost secrecy. So off the beach and into the festival building to the Shortlist exhibition… GoSee presents a selection of short interviews and cases discussed. Our special thanks go to Werbeweischer. Werbeweischer, German festival representative of Cannes Lions, who provided GoSee with three highly charming students from Macromedia Hochschule, Munich for pilot project ‘film your favourite Cannes Lions 2014 category with comments from the panel’. We reckon they’ve done a good job. And the comments were a great idea, Kai Roeffen, Petra Sammer and Claire Parker certainly knew how to fill the exhibition with life. An absolute GoSee luxury. ...

Design between advertising and branding. GoSee interviews Grand Prix winner Eric Amaral Rohter from Anti, quizzes Claire Parker (Designbridge) on her three favourites and celebrates Dill restaurant

Being on a design panel isn’t an easy job. It can be a challenge to form an opinion on each and every entry. There was some feedback at the press conference on the entries - Adrian Burton, Executive Creative Director, Lambie-Nairn, UK called for more ‘green work and less paper art’. His message: the millennium generation already lives in a different world, Cannes is behind the times and is loosing relevance when it comes to what is happening on the market. And it wasn’t the first time we heard it that week either.

His favourite was the LIDL project: Restaurant Dill. LIDL, on the market in Sweden for 10 years, has been in the red for just as many. The reason: cheap and good don’t go hand in hand in Swedish culture. Ingo Stockholm agency came up with the DILL restaurant (an acronym for LIDL) to challenge this way of thinking and show consumers just how narrow-minded they had been. The menu only served products from the supermarket, prepared by a two star chef. And what happened? The Swedes loved it! The restaurant was fully booked for weeks, the media went nuts, it was a super success. We present the showcase with the daring – or perhaps desperate – client that dared go to the edge of ‘good’ taste and practically threaten their customers to rethink whilst brandishing a rolling pin.
