Paul Phung is a London based freelance photographer, originally from Manchester. Phung fell into photography after dropping out of a graphic design course. He recently graduated from Leeds College of Art. His friends persuaded him to sign up to a local photography course and he agreed though a lack of having anything else to do. “It ended up just me actually taking up the course and my friends bailing out on me,” Phung says. “ I went onto study photography at uni in Leeds and it wasn’t until the end of second year really when I actually knew I wanted to be a photographer and became quite obsessive with the subject.”

Watching a Kilian Martin skate video filmed by friend and collaborator Brett Novak is akin to witnessing Michael Jordan fly through space to dunk a basketball for the first time. It is poetry in motion, and hard evidence of athletes near the peak of their creative and physical powers. But Kilian wasn’t always a skateboarder. As a kid growing up in Madrid, he first tried gymnastics, yet quickly realized that skateboarding offered a level of expression that was much more his personal tempo. Fast forward to skate videos that generate millions of YouTube hits and sponsorships with legendary brands like Vision Street Wear and Powell-Peralta, Kilian brings all that he learned as a young gymnast and combines them with the last thirty years of street and freestyle skateboarding. The result is an homage to the form itself – from skating’s early acrobatic days in the 60s to the street innovations of the 90s. As captured with Brett’s elegiac cinematography, Kilian takes freestyle skateboarding into the twenty-first century with his artful and inspiring take on handstands, helipops, and heel flips.

Infinite Space, a new documentary feature film, traces the lifelong quest of visionary genius John Lautner to create “architecture that has no beginning and no end.” It is the story of brilliance and of a complicated life – and the most sensual architecture of the 20th century.

Renowned architectural filmmaker Murray Grigor explores Lautner’s dramatic spaces with choreographed camera moves, as Lautner himself provides the commentary, speaking with insight and wit in recordings culled from archival sources. Other voices join him: comments from Frank Gehry and his peers who were influenced by Lautner, the emotional memories of original clients, owners and builders, the remarks of Frank Escher, the architect who restored the Chemosphere house, and Julius Shulman who famously photographed all the great modernists.
