An island utopia: Mallorca in winter

From Banyalbufar to Sa Calobra, from Valldemossa to Cala d’Or or the peninsula of Formentor, the island resumes a rhythm that lies somewhere between nonchalance and neglect. The melancholy feeling of time that freezes and stops.

CHROMATIC PRAGUE

Above all, Prague is a whole collection of urban mythologies, in which resonates a certain European spirit. From the idea of Mitteleuropa to political and literary dissent, Prague is a symbol that has become a magnet for tourists.

PRAGUE: THE WALLS ARE WATCHING YOU

Mascarons and other decorative motifs abound, providing a survey of the human condition. Demonstrative, unusual, refined, expressive, unexpected; they make up a kind of bestiary of the human face.

STREET ART UNDER THE WALLS?

Ephemeral by nature, street art is sometimes captured and found in some rather surprising places, returning  to its roots. Recently, casemates in the fortified town of Neuf-Brisach, a UNESCO World Heritage site, have begun to host just such a project. This location, frozen in time, is given a new lease on life and changes vocation. The venue is in development. It’s a work in progress punctuated by artists’ residencies.

SHOULD YOU VISIT DUBAÏ?

There is something fascinating at the heart of Dubai. Time is its standard as it chases after a kind of satiety. The city’s two creeds must be read in a kind of superlative bidding war, the highest or the greatest, combined with an eccentric dimension. Simultaneously a futuristic city with innovative architecture, global shopping center (e.g. Dubai Mall and its giant aquarium), super-kitsch or stylishly-designed holiday resort, or intercontinental hub, Dubai is the ultimate stage.
