Band Riders, by Henry Hargreaves.
Outrageous backstage requests – known as ‘riders’ – from rock stars are the stuff of legend and, by association, cliche:
Sliced white and Dom Perignon for Axl Rose, a tub of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter (among other things) for Billy Idol and, most famously, Van Halen’s M&Ms with the brown ones taken out.
Taking these dressing room demands as his inspiration, photographer Henry Hargreaves, with stylist Caitlin Levin, has recreated them in the manner of Dutch still lifes – a high-brow aesthetic to depict low-rent requests, such as:
Busta Rhymes’ fried chicken, Guinness and condoms, (top photograph).
Rihanna enjoys a sort of all-day brunch involving hard-boiled eggs, turkey bacon and turkey sausage ‘at any time throughout the day’, (second photograph).
Hargreaves has made something of a name for himself with eye-catching food projects.
He staged and photographed prisoners’ last meals, and recently created celebrities’ faces in mosaics made from toast burned with a kitchen blowtorch. ‘Food is a cheap material to work with,’ he says, matter-of-factly.

Everything Henry Hargreaves does is gold these days. Keep it up!

See some of the world’s most beautiful abandoned places
Take a tour of the world’s apparently robust supply of empty castles, power plants, and churches—and witness the surprising grandeur of dilapidation.
A tired screenwriting trope is to use abandoned places as settings where one’s gory horror scenarios might unfold—the house nobody has been inside for years, the decrepit mental hospital kids dare each other to sneak into. But “abandoned” doesn’t always mean “scary.” In fact, in some cases, it can be downright breathtaking—and not in a strangulation kind of way.

Work in progress… Been trying to do something examining spaces and creating spaces, where the background pattern and the foreground objects are related.
