"It contributes to a natural flow that helps society become more balanced when there are people who dare ignore all the rules and instead live up to their personal preferences." - @maikaelan on her photo story profiling the Japanese recluses known as #hikikomori
@cailinloesch’s interview with Maika on how she was able to get close to those who shut themselves out of all or most human contact, why she feels they opt to spend their lives hidden away in their rooms, what she has learned from their unique way of living, and her plans to next profile the "rental brothers and sisters" who have been able to successfully reintroduce hikikomoris into society on @museemagazine now #maikaelan
“Those parts are very protected by the Disney Corporation...they shield it with a blacked-out fence twenty feet high. I was able to scale that and get inside. There was security on the outside, so I remember hiding inside the park—I couldn’t come out until the security left. So it was very risky, me going in. Eventually they found out, because the images went viral and I started challenging Disney about why they weren’t cleaning up these areas of the park and why they were trying to hide them from the public. They started going after me pretty heavy. They reached out to me, they banned me from entering Disney World for life, but they refused to answer any questions that journalists had raised...” @sephlawless in his interview with @cailinloesch for @museemagazine of modern-day #rivercountry @sephlawless #forgottendisneyworld #abandonedplaces Link to full feature on our profile!
Imagine gathering together with your fraternity brothers or sisters and deciding to not only go to war together, but learn to fly and become the first squadron of the U.S. Navy Reserve. The Millionaires’ Unit, now available on VOD, tells the unsung story of a group of twenty-eight college students, nearly all of them from Yale University, who did just that. We spoke with the documentary’s two filmmakers, Darroch Greer and Ron King (a descendant of the First Yale Unit), about the process of making a documentary to which you have personal ties, how this brave group of college students were able to make history, and what viewers can learn from their dedication.

“I thought it was going to be more portrait-driven than it ended up, but that’s what made me think, Oh, I have this group of guys, I have access to this group of guys who all started out doing the exact same thing at the exact same time in their lives. And professional sports is so—the lifespan, the career span is so short—that I could, without commiting for my entire life, maybe do the beginning, middle and end of something. So in my mind, Rineke Dijkstra was as important as Billy Beane.”

“I suppose the moment I bought a Rolleiflex camera things really changed. That camera had something going on. Depth of field was more exciting; the format of the negs was more interesting, even the out of focus shots were cool. Then I started working with real printers like Mike Spry at Downtown darkroom and Brian Dowling at BDI in London. They turned my crappy negatives into boxes of exquisite prints. It was like Christmas.” — @bryanadams on his photography

“I just never thought that was possible, you know, to make that kind of connection with these animals. So that’s kind of where I started with it. I felt like if I could get to that place, figure out what the animal was about, then I might be able to make a better photograph of it.” — VINCENT J. MUSI

“Being allowed to photograph someone is a privilege; it’s a silent dance.” BRYAN ADAMS —
Bryan Adams is the first to be profiled in our new series on the website. Seduced by the Lens will feature interviews by the @loeschtwins with established figures in entertainment who have found another passion in photography. On the site now!
Loved getting to chat with @tabithasoren for her @museemagazine feature on her transition from an entertainment journalist to a fine art photographer, her fifteen years photographing the famed Oakland A’s 2002 #moneyball draft class, and how she found her eye for photography coming soon! #tabithasoren #photography #musee
Imagine going on a virtual blind date from your couch, where you must get to know the person entirely through their bodycam POV as they go about their day. On TLC’s new three-part series, three bachelorettes will do just that, each going on several dates with three men, then choosing one before she even sees him for the first time. Christine Lakin is the bachelorettes’ wingwoman who offers moral support from the beginning to the end of the journey, sitting in on dates and getting to know the men herself. We spoke with Christine about the shocking new series, what it’s like to be the third wheel in front of a national audience, and what she hopes the show teaches viewers and participants alike about love.

“There’s bitter, which is decidedly distasteful, right? And there’s sweet. Bittersweet is that combination. In the film, all these things come from a girl who’s 19 years old, and it is that—bittersweet, like a pain you desire. It’s a contradiction. It’s the past, and it’s probably not good for me, but I like it. I feel comfortable in it. It’s like an ailment that you enjoy.” We spoke with Mark Pellington about his upcoming film, his career as a director, and how he defines nostalgia. Link on our profile! #markpellington #nostalgia
Happy birthday sister!! It sounds like such a cliche, but it’s actually hard to imagine the past couple of years without you around. Whether we’re traveling together, watching one documentary after another in our dorm, or sitting for hours in the lab laughing through class projects (three computers in a row, every time) absolutely everything is more fun when we’re doing it with you! Wish we were celebrating with you today #feeling22??
“My hope is that people will see that individuals with disabilities are not destined to a sad, lonely life. With the right attitude, they can have amazing friendships, cool experiences, awesome achievements and a life full of love and happiness. I also hope to inspire parents who are walking the same journey as me to keep the faith and know they are never alone.” We talked with Angie of @angieandruby (who you may know from their feature on @specialbooksbyspecialkids) about what she hopes her daughter finds in her friendships as she enters her teenage years, what she would say to Ruby or anyone else who is struggling with being different, how she hopes her and Ruby’s social media account and others like it will change the way people see people with disabilities, and what Ruby has taught her about life. Also included in the story is Angie’s list of tips for talking to a person with a disability, made with the help of her and Ruby’s followers! #raregem #disabilityawareness #disabilityisnotinability Thank you so much Angie and Ruby!
