Layers Beget Layers


On sight I was immediately drawn in to this colorful photo of a place called Kolkata. It was the lead photo on Filthy Gorgeous by Alex Vadukul in the travel section of Today’s Times Magazine. Where is Kolkata?

Going further down the page brought me to this delightful video of father and son, Max and Alex Vadukul, discussing their trip to Culcutta.

For the father it was photo shoot, for the son it was to write this travel piece and for both it was to share a legacy.

It’s a treat to witness the superimposed vision, sound, texture, food, family, culture, heritage and adventure stacked one upon the other and tied together with a big bow of father and son bonding. See for yourself:

Two Weeks in Kolkata

Pittsburgh-based fiber artist, Louise Silk, creates art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memories. From the influence of a 1972 MS Magazine article to the current SILKDENIM label, her quilt experiences culminate in a display of her particular capacity to use her patchwork skills to piece together just about anything into an aesthetic meaningful whole.

  1. What an interesting and endearing relationship to witness. Next time the NYTimes sends a duo to Calcutta, it should totally be you and me.
