rom billboards to magazines and prime time news, audiences are constantly confronted with images manufactured to evoke particular feelings. The captivating stories behind many of these images, which are often captured in intense or peculiar circumstances, are rarely expressed from the perspective of the photographer. [thousand words] intends to bring a select group of artist ’s raw untold experiences to light at Lane Four this autumn. The scene to the right depicts officials attempting to manage Occupy Wall Street protesters in the streets of New York, Tristan Stefan-Edouard snapped a photograph of the crowds naming it ‘99%’. The photograph later ignited the idea for [thousand words] when curators at aMBUSH Galler y discovered the image and the stor y behind it. “It made us think of how many other stories exist in a photographer’s career and provided an opportunity to share them,” commented Bill Dimas of aMBUSH. Soon after, some of Australia’s most acclaimed and emerging photographic works were collated and are now on display at Lane Four including Montalbetti + Campbell, Andrew Q uilty, Tim Georgeson,
Amanda Prior and more. This collection offers an exclusive insight into the most intimate and defining moments captured by some of Australia’s most talented photographers. Each thought provoking image is accompanied by 100 words, which describes the inspiration and stor y behind the image. According to Bill Dimas from aMBUSH Galler y “each artist embraced the concept of the exhibition, and expressed that it was a refreshing idea many had been anticipating”. This exhibition provided an opportunity for the artists to speak directly with their audience about photographs and the personal emotional experience associated with their chosen shot. Diverging from the meaningful and towards the fun, ‘Jeremyville’ will be the next artist showcased at The Galeries in late May. The famous New York based comic artist is sure to bring a pop of colour and entertainment to the walls of Lane Four and maintain the diversity of artists exhibited in the space.

TALKING MUSIC WITH JORDAN MILLAR
It is always exciting to discover a local musician with an even amount of talent and charisma. Between travel and shows, we tracked down the sparkly-eyed Jordan Millar to find out a little more about his budding music career. Having toured with celebrities including Delta Goodrem, Brian McFadden and Katie Noonan, it could be presumed that Millar would fall under the pop-culture categor y of Australian music. However, describing his own music as a “deciduous musical tree, always changing a little bit but with its roots firmly planted in the pop music ground”, we might need to think again. Although Millar is no Liam Gallagher, we don’t anticipate collaboration with the likes of pop princess Jessica Mauboy anytime soon. As an award winning singer songwriter in Australia with a knack for lyrical creations, which song lyrically resonated with Millar? His choices clearly reflected his own sound, leaning toward the whimsical and the smooth.
“Jeff Buckley ’s ‘Forget Her’” pronounced the young musician, who is also a fan of Ireland’s ‘James Vincent McMorrow ’ and ‘Bombay Bicycle Club’. Millar also keeps an eye on the musical prowess of Jamie Lidell who he finds to be an interesting and inspiring musical talent. W hen reflecting on his own music, the 24-year-old artist described ‘Recreate You’ as “complete, both as a stor y and a song” and confidently labelled it as his best work yet. W hen Millar was asked to list his top five albums of all time, he did not evade the question, narrowing the choice of his favourite compilations to; Jimi Hendrix ‘Axis Bold As Love’, Jamie Lidell ‘Multiply ’, John Mayer ‘Room For Squares’, Dave Matthews Band ‘Under The Table or Cash’ and Incubus ‘Morning V iew ’. If you missed Millar perform during March To The Music at The Galeries and think you could be his next big fan check out his website or Facebook for upcoming live dates and new song releases.

It is difficult to decide what’s best to sample when it comes to exploring international cuisine on a local level and knowing the best local spots is a must for all Sydney siders. Inspired by travel and street foods of the world, we’ve narrowed it down to delicacies most commonly tested in two food culture capitals of the world; Turkey’s Baklava and Japan’s Okonomiyaki offer a taste of the sweet and savory flavours of the globe right here in the CBD. A favourite of those with a sweet tooth is Baklava; a honey soaked Turkish dessert. Traditionally made with pistachios, the sweet is made with layers of crisp filo pastry filled with nuts, sweetened sugar syrup and honey. If you have ever wandered the bustling streets of historic Istanbul, you will find patisseries no less visually inspiring than those found on the streets of Paris. Son of Tuysuz showcases Turkey’s cultural diversity with a rich variety of delicious regional food. The local Japanese favourite, chicken okonomiyaki is a Japanese style pancake made with cabbage, garlic, ginger and chilli topped with teppan-fried chicken, bean sprouts, red and spring onions, snow peas, drizzled with wasabi mayonnaise,
garnished with pickled ginger and coriander. The fresh ingredients and unusual layered pancake presentation make for a delicious meal that is widely celebrated in the streets of Osaka and Tokyo. If you’re not about to embark on a culinary journey overseas, enjoy these recommended international dishes right here in your own city. Autumn brings about not only a change of season, but also a number of new dishes added to the Wagamama menu. Wagamama is the most popular chain of Asian inspired noodle restaurant in the country and restaurants can only be popular for one good reason; the food is delicious. So travel with your taste buds and try the chicken okonomiyaki today.
L I LY C O L E - A B E A U T Y W I T H H E A R T International supermodel and actor Lily Cole has been selected by The Body Shop as their first global brand advocate for the new campaign ‘Beauty With Heart’. The Body Shop has long supported causes such as eliminating animal testing, defending human rights, supporting community trade in
developing nations and more recently a crusade to stop sex trafficking of children and young people. ‘Beauty with Heart’ and Cole’s involvement aims to bring attention to all these issues collectively and inform consumers on an international scale. There’s no denying the collaboration has the ability to
increase awareness for these causes, having aligned a fresh faced red haired beauty with the brand that just happens to have strutted the Victoria’s Secret runway among many others. Cole is whole-heartedly on board stating she has “long been an advocate of the potential use of business and consumer power to create positive change”.
Sophie Gasperment, Executive Chairman for The Body Shop believes the future of beauty should be about “looking good, feeling good, and doing good too.” Visit The Body Shop from May 15th and see ‘Beauty With Heart’ in all its glory.
