Finding Beauty in Everyday Origami with @white_onrice

For more images of Ross Symons’ origami creations, follow @white_onrice on Instagram.

"I started with the crane and I lost count of how many times I folded it,” says Cape Town Instagrammer Ross Symons (@white_onrice), describing his obsession with origami art.

“What I didn’t realize at the time is how origami was going to become such a massive part of my life,” he says. “At the beginning of 2014 I decided that I would post one different origami figure every day for the whole year. I did this for myself to prove that I could do it.”

He considers fold time to be the most important measurement of success for his work: the more discipline and patience he has, the faster he folds the figure.

“‘It’s just paper, it shouldn’t take long to make’ is a response I’ve heard before,” Ross says. “I feel there is a misconception that because origami uses paper to create something, that means it’s easy to do.”

On Instagram, Ross connects with a global community that shares his fascination with folding paper. “The people I chat to on Instagram are from all over the world,” he explains. “There is something really rewarding about folding a model and getting it right, no matter how complex or simple. I love—and when I say love I mean I’m totally obsessed with—folding paper.”

Illuminating the Craft of Stain Glass with @annahitahessami

To see more photos and videos of stained glass creation from Annahita’s studio, follow @annahitahessami on Instagram.

“Stained glass artists today use the same techniques to produce modern works that medieval craftsmen used through history,” explains Annahita Hessami (@annahitahessami), who established her London stained glass studio in 2011. “The techniques of the trade have barely changed at all.”

Recently, Annahita paused production of her more traditional stained glass creations to work on several pieces for Brooklyn artist Beau Stanton (@beaustanton). “Beau found me on Instagram and approached me to make a series of seven panels for an upcoming show called Tenebras Lux.” Debuting within the Crypt of St. John the Baptist in Bristol, UK, before moving to London, the show draws from and repurposes classical and medieval religious iconography.

Documenting the Legs of New York with @stace_a_lace

Follow Stacey Baker (@stace_a_lace) on Instagram and be sure to check out her full collection of New York legs at citilegs.com.

During the work day, Stacey Baker is an associate photo editor at The New York Times Magazine, curating photos and occasionally contributing to the Times Magazine's 'The 6th Floor' blog.

In March, Baker posted to her Instagram account (@stace_a_lace) the first of what would become a recurring series of photos documenting the various styles and shapes of women’s legs in New York City.

"I started taking pictures of women’s legs about four months ago. Like a lot of people who live in New York, I walk a great deal, and almost everywhere you look, you see wonderfully stylish people," says Stacey. "Occasionally, I get a negative response, but for the most part, the women I approach are game and seem pleased to have been asked. A number of women have told me I’ve made their day."

Stacey offers advice for those that may want to try their hand at photographing strangers:

"I think people are most receptive when you’re as straightforward as possible," she says. "When I approach someone, I explain that I’m doing a project on legs, and I show them a sample of the images I’ve already posted. I offer to delete any photos they don’t like, and also to email them the images."

And what if you’re turned down? “Sometimes a rejection stings a little, but you just keep trying.”
