"Room portraits", rooms portrayed from a new angle by Menno Aden

It is not the first time we see photographic series that have our rooms as the main theme, but Menno Aden has found a new angle for his series "Room portraits". It is an almost impossible zenith plane that teaches us different rooms from a surprising point of view.

The photographs call our attention twice. On the one hand, it is disconcerting the fact that it is difficult to recognize spaces that we inhabit every day, mainly due to the change of perspective, far from the usual one. On the other, we are concerned to know how the artist has achieved such a feat. Was that spiderman perched on the roof? If you keep reading, I reveal it to you.

Well, actually, the video, which shows us how he achieves so curious snapshot: With a monopod, a 35mm lens (not an angle) and a lot of patience to put together the 150 photos that it makes approximately of each room.

Undoubtedly a very attractive series, which has achieved global popularity, as it has exhibited worldwide and its pieces are quoted around 4,000 euros. Perhaps part of its attractiveness lies in that we love to gossip each other's houses, and these seem especially inhabited (and messy).

I leave you with a gallery so you can enjoy some of Menno Aden's works.

Work spaces: up the color with Lolo Polos Artesanos

There are businesses that are perfect. For aesthetics, for having a funny and easily remembered slogan, and for being located where they have to be, in an environment that is natural and with an audience eager to connect with them. That is what happens with 'Lolo Polos Artesanos'. A curious and fun ice cream shop where they sell handmade fruit poles without dyes, preservatives or other artificial substances, famous already in Malasaña for the phrase 'Don't call me polo, call me Lolo'.
