Adventures of a LEGO Photographer Taken with an iPhone by Andrew Whyte | via
Photographer Andrew Whyte has found a new way to incorporate LEGOs into the world in his 365-day series, The Legographer. The whimsical collection features a little LEGO figure placed into all kinds of fun and unexpected settings around town. We catch only a glimpse of the toy photographer’s face as he composes the perfect landscape or ventures beyond the known and into the crevices of a brick wall.
The project is a playful exploration of the world from a ground perspective. Viewers will find themselves enjoying the landscapes and scenery but also feeling a sense of curiosity about the LEGO figure and where he might end up next.
Whyte created the entire series with his iPhone and, although there were some technical challenges, he found that the process allowed him to be spontaneous with his creativity. He says, “For a year, the minifigure was like my own model whom I could pose and compose—something that’s seldom needed in my real work. So despite occasional frustrations, honestly I had so much fun and I continued to learn a lot about photography throughout.”
The original Lust (and later, Lust Script the 13th place in the 100 fonts of 2013) was my overly indulgent attempt to infuse wanton sensuality in a typeface. I wanted to create something that was over the top, curvy serif that was a little sexy. Lust Slim signifies a maturation of the individual families as it branches out into further useful typographic indulgences. Lust Slim is just that, slimmer, more compact, more economical of space. It works lock-step with Lust and Lust Script. Both weights and each variant still appear… just optimized for a narrower setting. Everything that was under the covers before, still remains–with a few surprises—Lots of contrast, almost demure, coy contrast mixed with the flowing curves of a woman’s body, incomplete, almost teasing ball terminals, and serifs that went on forever…so sharp they would draw blood if you touched them.
WARNING! I cannot stress this enough. Please know what you are getting into with this typeface. Like a supermodel, it can’t be squeezed into every situation. It needs room and size to breathe. The regular weights can support 36-point or higher settings, whereas the display weights shine above 72-point (preferably 100-point).
Lust Slim is packed with alternates to play with‚ enough to turn you on and satisfy. Utilizing the OpenType features (and Glyph palette) wisely will have you weaving through endless variations of Stylistic, Contextual, Titling, Historical and Swash alternates‚ and the Italic styles feature a Contextual system that allows you to switch seamlessly between Didone and Scotch traits in order to better complement the upright variants.
