Ryan McGinley and his large-scale works in London

The American fotographer Ryan McGinley presents seven new works at Londons Alison Jacques Gallery. The artists largest to date is about 6 by 9 feet. But while the scale has increased, he still works with the elements naked and natur - with an amazing result.

November 24 - December 22
Alison Jacques Gallery
16-18 Berners Street

"My photographs are about removal: bringing people to nondescript locations, to places that aren't recogniable, removing their clothes, capturing them with a very limited style plalette. I try to think about how timelessness, isolation and style interact," McGinley said - and think everyone can see and feel it!

Marc Jacob's summer 2012 collection went missing

On the way from Paris to London someone stolen Marc Jacob's spring/summer 2012 collection. The Telegraph published Jacob's message to the buyers and press: "Dear all, The Marc Jacobs PR team is sorry to inform you that our press day tomorrow [a refresher for editors of the clothes that were first shown on the catwalk. What, the models' googly-eyed death stares were distracting, alright?] in the Marc Jacobs store [in London] is cancelled, due to the theft of the spring/summer 2012 collections during its transfer from Paris."

But what wants the thief do with the clothes? Every act with the collection will attract attention.

Places in Barcelona - Champaneria

Let the Cava flow and bring on the tapas - the Champaneria bar in Barceloneta (Reina Cristina 7) is one of the best places to start a long night into the early morning. It's a place where locals and tourist join. To each tapa you enjoy cava at a low price - but don't enjoy to much, it shouldn't be last bar for this night!

This typical Spanish designed bar is placed in an old tavern - which is its charm.

You can buy the wine and all other stuff in the back store.

Sacha Goldberger's Mamika & Co

She is 91 years old and photo model - Frederika is the grandma of French photographer Sacha Goldberger and she is "Mamika". A few years ago, he found his Hungarian grandmother feeling lonely and depressed. To cheer her up, he suggested that they shoot a series of outrageous photographs in unusual costumes, poses, and locations. Grandma reluctantly agreed, but once they got rolling, she couldn't stop smiling. After some time Mamika got support by "Papika" and "Dark Papouka".
