Scotland-based laser physicist-turned-artist and web developer Tom Beddard, aka subBlue, has produced a number of intriguing geometric forms he refers to as Fabergé Fractals. Like an ornate Fabergé egg, Beddard’s creations boast brilliant and intricate design patterns. The English artist uses a formulaic method to create his digitally rendered three-dimensional models.

The 3D fractals are generated by iterative formulas whereby the output of one iteration forms the input for the next. The formulas effectively fold, scale, rotate or flip space. They are truly fractal in the fact that more and more detail can be revealed the closer to the surface you travel.

In the summer of 2009, the founder of all things Citrus Report was in Tokyo to visit one of the studios of famed Japanese photographer, Yasumasa “Yone” Yonehara. While he was there, Yone was working on a project for a Japanese magazine, and footage was shot using a Super 8 camera of the photo shoot.

What you can’t hear in words, you can see in action: the way Yone communicates with the models, his staff, the team involved in the shoot, and the iconic camera and film that Yone uses that has made his “look” so famous today.
