"The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished."

What food really go well together? What are the stereotypical food pairings? Kyle decided to explore this a bit with this personal project which some have dubbed the “food bondage series.” He enjoys working with this concept to see just how far it will go. Currently there are countless pairings still to be photographed.

"Dear brothers and sisters, do remember one thing: Malala Day is not my day. Today is the day of every woman, every boy and every girl who have raised their voice for their rights.

Dear Friends, on the 9th of October 2012, the Taliban shot me on the left side of my forehead. They shot my friends too. They thought that the bullets would silence us. But they failed. The terrorists thought that they would change our aims and stop our ambitions, but nothing changed in my life except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, power and courage was born.  I am the same Malala. My ambitions are the same. My hopes are the same. My dreams are the same.

The wise saying ‘the pen is mightier than sword’ was true. The extremists are afraid of books and pens. The power of education frightens them. They are afraid of women. The power of the voice of women frightens them. Through hate-filled actions, extremists have shown what frightens them the most: a girl with a book.

Peace is necessary for education. In many parts of the world, terrorism, wars and conflicts stop children to go to their schools. We are really tired of these wars. There was a time when women social activists asked men to stand up for their rights. But, this time, we will do it by ourselves. I am not telling men to step away from speaking for women’s rights. Rather, I am focusing on women to be independent to fight for themselves. 

Today we call upon all communities to be tolerant – to reject prejudice based on caste, creed, sect, religion or gender. We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back.

We call upon our sisters around the world to be brave – to embrace the strength within themselves and realise their full potential. 

Let us pick up our books and pens. They are our most powerful weapons. 

We must not forget that our sisters and brothers are waiting for a bright peaceful future.”

One of the bravest women I have ever seen. Her story is amazing and I encourage everyone to look her up.

Residence of Daisen | A house designed to fit between the gaps of trees

Residence of Daisen, named after the mountain in Tottori prefecture where the house rests, is made up of several containers positioned in open areas of the forest. They’re connected by passageways that strategically meander around trees. But the topography of the land wasn’t the only field that required careful study. In the winter Daisen gets between 6 -7 feet of snow. By raising the house off the ground on pillars the architects not only prevented potential snowfall problems but also allowed for more breeze to pass through the home. It’s a home that, in the truest sense of the phrase, coexists with nature.
