10 Eco-Friendly Lifestyle Habits That Can Help You Save Money

While rampant greenwashing has people believing they have to buy the latest and trendiest ‘green’ products to feel as though they are saving the planet, that is just clever marketing exploiting human psychology for a company’s own interests and gains. It is this type of marketing that has fueled the misconception that eco-friendly living is expensive. In fact, when done in the proper spirit of resource sustainability and frugality, an eco-friendly lifestyle should actually be cheaper over the long-run.

Here are 10 eco-friendly habits that will save you money:

Opinion: There’s more to photography competitions than just winning prizes

Photography competitions aren’t for everyone but, from camera clubs to the world stage and everything in-between, there’s no denying they are a huge part of the photography industry. I’ve helped judge a couple of minor competitions and although poring over entries is hugely inspirational, choosing winners can feel like an insurmountable task. Art – funnily enough – isn’t an exact science. 

There’s no universal rule book for judging a photograph. Different people have different ideas as to what constitutes a winning image, and those ideas might change from genre to genre or even mood. Perhaps technique should take precedence… or

Fendi Spring 2022 Menswear Collection

“In a moment where our freedom has seemed to have limits, I think it’s also the moment to push it… so I really wanted to give a sense of freedom to this man. I think it’s the time to break boundaries.” So said Silvia Venturini Fendi over Zoom from her office high in the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, the beautiful neoclassical (and less beautifully, Fascist-era) building that has been home to her family-founded brand since 2015.

From her elevated office, Fendi enjoys a dawn-til-dusk panorama of Rome’s famous seven hills that’s framed by the bulging Apennine mountains to the northeast

How to Make Photography Fun Again

Most people get into photography because it is fun and exciting. But when you do photography as a job or even if you are in school studying photography, it can at times lose its luster. Finding ways to bring joy and fun back to photography can be a challenge, but is a worthwhile pursuit.

I’m sure most of us have been there at some time or another. Photography can at times feel like a chore, instead of something you want and are excited to do. Maybe it is because photography is your career and you have been focused on the

Italian artist auctions off invisible sculpture

In May, Italian artist Salvatore Garau sold his “immaterial sculpture” I Am at an auction. The invisible piece of art consists literally of nothing. Even though the work has no material existence, the Art-Rite auction house estimated its value at between €6,000 and €9,000 (that is, between approximately $7,000 and $11,000). During the auction, bidders pushed the price up, and Garau walked away with €15,000 ($18,300).

In exchange for this sum, the buyer—a private Milanese collector—of the putative work, the latest version of the Emperor’s New Clothes, received a certificate of authenticity and the artist’s instructions for displaying the sculpture.
