Crunch22 and Alice

BPX_7299

Crunch 22 ‘s second album is a wild adventure dedicated to Lewis Carol’s timeless classic Alice in Wonderland… The trio takes you on a psychedelic journey throughout the album and tomorrow they’re gonna make that journey live in tel aviv.
A bit before the album came out, they decided it’s time to refresh their band photos, so we went for a “walk”

life according to Ortega

BPX_3695
When Ortega called me to say he’s working on a new album I was excited, I knew he’s cooking up something serious. When we first started working together he was a new player in, a local rap prodigy, now he’s one of the leading rappers in the game, and in the past ten years he’s been everywhere, on every small and big stage in the country, shows abroad, television, radio, solo performances and collaborations with the biggest names in the underground as well as mainstream musicians.

this weekend he’s celebrating the release of his new album with guests in a killer show that I’m personally very excited about

mor and pipe

20150709155025-BPX_6782
Mor married Amit, but I know him as Pipe, and have known him for many years, from being a turntablism scratch prodigy and rocking out in the biggest hip hop parties and live events and now that he teaches the next generation of DJs.
When he told me he’s going to get married, I knew it’s going to be a blast. Taking their pictures on the beach with their boards was fun, but i knew the best was yet to come with a bunch of the hottest local DJs on their guest list, who got up the stand one after the other and in several occasions even a few together, including our groom.mor and pipe blog collagesmor and pipe blog collages220150709152434-BPX_660120150709154122-BPX_668220150709154001-BPX_666020150709155121-BPX_681220150709173322-BPX_6962mor and pipe blog collages420150709154629-BPX_673020150709173210-BPX_6952mor and pipe blog collages320150709172651-BPX_687220150709181447-BPX_712220150709181416-BPX_711020150709173926-BPX_7009mor and pipe blog collages5mor and pipe blog collages6mor and pipe blog collages7mor and pipe blog collages820150709200122-BPX_751420150709195353-BPX_743720150709200200-IMG_393120150709200208-BPX_752220150709201135-BPX_758920150709201512-BPX_760020150709213012-BPX_776420150709202921-BPX_763620150709202941-BPX_764320150709224441-BPX_816420150709224340-BPX_815220150709224132-BPX_8128mor and pipe blog collages920150709225939-BPX_828620150709213715-BPX_7805mor and pipe blog collages1020150709223919-BPX_811020150709234316-BPX_8465mor and pipe blog collages1120150709231547-BPX_837520150709214132-BPX_782220150709221006-BPX_796020150709221734-BPX_801520150709225349-BPX_823420150709232009-BPX_839720150709224456-BPX_816820150709230447-BPX_830720150709213836-BPX_7812mor and pipe blog collages1320150709220624-BPX_7935mor and pipe blog collages1520150709225755-BPX_825320150709233449-BPX_8439mor and pipe blog collages1420150709214739-BPX_7879mor and pipe blog collages1220150709231619-BPX_837820150709235258-BPX_852120150710002953-BPX_860520150710003006-BPX_860820150710002936-BPX_860320150710004331-BPX_8640

BPX_2446
Lital and Nir had a small wedding that was fortunate to take part of. Their wedding was fun and laid back and was exactly what we talk about in the barely bridal project. And as if being chill wasn’t enough, Lital’s answers and story behind the dress are simply perfect.barely bridal 12  blog collagesbarely bridal 12  blog collages2
1. what’s the story behind the dress?
– for the life of god I never wanted a dress with a story, but when we decided to get married my mom suggested her well-kept dress, and that was easy and available, but the rest of the story is that we started telling ourselves how we’re going to pass it on from generation to generation,  and that’s a bonus, less of what’s the story, more like who.
BPX_2428BPX_2437-2BPX_24612. who made it? where did you get it?
-oh, good thing you asked, the dress was made by Aunt Jinet, who isn’t actually my mom’s aunt, but a holocaust survivor friend of my grandfather, rest his soul. Aunt Jinet was a seamstress, her and her partner never had kids, so as long as my mother can remember, she would promise her that when the time comes she will sew her wedding dress. I don’t know how much my mother took this threat seriously, but when she returned to France with the new about her marrying my dad, Aunt Jinet jumped up with the measuring tape and the rest is history. But I can’t really stop here, because even though my mom’s English lace selection was stunning, her wedding was in the 80s, meaning that there was enough of it to build a small tent, especially around the shoulder area, and of course a thick-thick belt that was finished with a huge gift style bow in the back. I tried it on, my dad laughed and almost choked, and said “it looks very modest”. Luckily, I reached out to Odelia Arnold, a fashion designer who’s talent cannot be described in words, she totally took apart the dress and was very attentive before reconstructing in to the stunning result before you.BPX_2487
3. how long did it take to make?
– the second time around was six weeks from our first meeting with two measurement sessions. The first time, Im guessing it took a while, even though Aunt Jinet was ready for it for 26 years, I can assume it was pretty quick.BPX_2497
4. price?
– $200 for the alterations, the first time around was free + emotional taxes.
BPX_2506BPX_2533
5. any regrest?
– far from it.
BPX_2512
6. A wedding dress for you is?
– not a big deal. My mom was actually the first one to get married in a white dress after my grandmother and great grandmother were even more undermining than we were and got married in pants. I think it’s mainly cool if you can make it into a family thing and load it with a personal story. I wish I’ll be able to pass it on to someone from the next generation to do whatever her heart pleases with it.
another thing is that i think a wedding dress in general is quite embarrassing from its roots, and I don’t see any purpose in adding drama to it. Who are you, women who get married in kawabanga and crystal dresses that cost like half an apartment?BPX_2526

Tal and Elad like having a good time and it shows. Their wedding was on an incredibly hot day, and we wanted to shoot them near their apartment in central Tel Aviv,  so we went to their favorite breakfast spot (where they actually had breakfast that morning) we hopped on a bus, got pizza, went to shopping plaza, danced in the street and had fun with any idea or location that popped to mind.
Later that evening, Avigdor was filled with over-the-top energy and a ton of photos that were hard to choose from.

KISS- keep it simple stupid is a good rule that all creatives know and hopefully follow, and it makes perfect sense that it will be used when both the bride and groom are creatives and plan their wedding.
A beautiful venue with great food, good music, close friends and family and lots of glitter and disco balls.

about six month before Yael and I got married in the Jem’s Beer Factory  and we wrote about that dress and that event here, we had to get legally married and decided to go old school. We wore vintage suits and dresses, everyone sported a mustache, we had burekas and marinated herring, it was chill and perfect, much more than we could expect from a visit to the rabbinate.
we asked Yael about her dress and about the wedding.

BPX_30261. what’s the story behind the dress?
–  I looked for something simple that could work well with the Jewish vintage style we were going for at the time we were living in China. actually in China finding a white dress is easy in the summer, but it was already autumn so it wasn’t that easy.

BPX_30132. where did you get it?
– H&M and I also wanted a top, that we found one night walking home from the supermarket. In Ningbo, you can’t find a cab at 6pm, because everyone is on a supper break, so we walked through the small streets and found the top in a small shop that we’ve never been to before and never been to since. It was sized XL, about the size of a M in Israel.

BPX_2997BPX_2999a3. Price?
– the dress was about $40 and the top probably another $50

BPX_3034BPX_30324. Any regrets?
– of course not. it was stunning

BPX_30465. What’s a wedding dress for you?
– Something far from reality.

Yael and I. on our wedding day. November 2011.
