Los Angeles – again – celebrates photography and art with an extraordinary art show and release of a collector’s-edition book of Rolling Stones photographs. To celebrate the occasion TASCHEN is opening an exhibition in Los Angeles: “It’s Just a Shot Away: The Rolling Stones in Photographs.” It will feature prints for sale from many of the artists whose work is featured in the new “sumo”-size book, including David Bailey, Gered Mankowitz, Jean-Marie Perier, Bent Rej, and Terry Richardson.

A who is who of Hollywood Photo lovers, collectors and image maker came to the opening. David Bailey himself had fun hanging with Hollywood royalty. By the way: you won’t find David Bailey on Instagram (he thinks selfies are masturbation) and as stated in an interview with Vanity Fair he hates nostalgia: “I don’t like old farts that talk to me about the 60s like it was the best moments of their lives.” David Bailey has almost 20 books released so far – and he is not stopping.

The limited Rolling Stones edition masterpiece features more than 60 photographers spanning more than 500 pages— you travel the world with the Stones, see candid moments and access to superstars in music, hardly anyone had before.

David Bailey loves his medium: “That’s the great ...

film • Reporters without Borders – we present the timeless Happy film, featuring Putin, Assad, Jong-Un .... and other ‘philanthropists’. And encourage you to : Help Dawitt Isaak!

The campaign we present here on GoSee is from 2013, but we still want to encourage you to watch it – despite the question of who started what, one thing is clear to us: where there’s oppression and censorship, where people cannot move freely, speak their mind and develop, there is something seriously wrong.

The 2014 campaign by the brave Reporters without Borders is titled: 'HELP US TO FREE HIM FROM THIS CONTAINER!' and puts the spotlight on the fate of Dawitt Isaak, journalist from Eritrea. From their explanatory article: ‘arrested along with other newspaper editors in 2001, Dawit Isaak is slowly dying in Eiraeiro prison camp, where detainees are tortured and shut inside burning hot containers. This journalist and poet, a naturalized Swedish citizen, returned to his country to serve a “free Eritrea” and to launch Setit, a newspaper with reformist ideas. He has just turned 50. What can we find out about Eritrea, about what’s going on there? Not much, actually. Because the journalists who could tell us are all imprisoned, dead or in exile. Yirgalem Fisseha Mebrahtu, Dawit Isaak and Seyoum Tsehaye have been mistreated terribly for more than 10 years. Many of their colleagues have been murdered. Eritrea is Africa’s biggest prison for media personnel.’

So, take Christmas as an opportunity to not just ...

Brit Power • Emma Watson wins the British Style Award at the British Fashion Awards 2014 – we present her acceptance speech as well as all of the winners here on GoSee

Even if it won’t really surprise anyone - we still warmly congratulate Emma Watson. Clever Emma just won the British Style Award at British Fashion Awards 2014. The award honours the person who most represents the British fashion style and who is an international ambassador for London as a fashion city. The award is the only one that is voted for by the public within the context of the Brit Fashion Awards. And yes - we would have made the same choice.

And by the way, what is the best 'Made in Britain' brand these days? Of course there’s no way around Mrs. Beckham. Anyone doubting that the Outstanding Achievement Award 2014 went to her royal coolness Anna Wintour, born in 1949 in London and editor in chief of US Vogue since 1988? We didn’t think so. Is there a new trend, maybe serious is the new black? Maybe not quite. Our sources tell us that there was a wild after party, so crisis averted (for now). We present all of the winners here on GoSee as well as Emma’s great speech and the best moments of 2014 in a summary.


About - The British Fashion Awards were held on Monday 1st December 2014 at the London Coliseum and hosted by British comedian, Jack Whitehall. The event celebrates the contributions of British designers, creatives and models to the international fashion scene since 1989.
