“You should feel the heat in five or ten seconds,” said Paul B o s l a n d, his blue eyes boring into mine while I chewed my Past bite of chile r e l l e n o at La P o s t a, an old-time T e x-M e x restaurant in the dusty desert town of M e s i l l a, New Mexico.

On board with Virgin Galactic.

We spoke to the President of Virgin Galactic, Steve Isakowitz, about the work this pioneering private space company is doing and what we can expect in the future.

Why are space planes like Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo so important for the exploration of space?

Well I think it’s going after one of the toughest problems in space exploration, which is that if you’re ultimately going to reduce the cost of getting people into space, one needs to demonstrate a routine ability to reuse hardware and to fly things over and over. [Space travel is] really the only transportation mode, whether it’s

What, for you, are the most significant and exciting implications for Cape Town as a World Design Capital? The design world is coming! It is an opportunity for our local design talent to create new markets for the services. And for the country as a whole? South Africa can participate by creating its own spectacular programmes — Cape Town is just the backdrop but we hope that it will generate a country-wide showcase. CTD is responsible for the official programme — the unofficial exhibitions and events don’t need our approval (they just cannot use the ICSID brand). What kind of

While a student at Farnham he was advised by Nick Knight to develop a distinctive style, «But these days», he tells f2, «rather than worrying about my style being unique, I’m more interested in producing natural photographs, and trying to get a performance out of the subject.

Heavy Burden

Ginger Baker about his anger at all …

His brilliant play on the double barrel of the installation group Cream Ginger Baker turned into a superstar rock on drums. His game in Cream also considered to be the benchmark for heavy metal. You will think that this 73-year-old musician, who still tours regularly with his group Jazz Confusion, many reasons to smile. Not really. His great claim to numerous countries on which he had the opportunity to tour and occasionally live. He hates heavy metal and its presumable role in its origin.

In 2005, Eric Schwartz, 64, a Colorado/Los Angeles-based photographer and first-time director of the documentary Tattoo Nation, was sitting in a diner waiting for his meal when a tattoo caught his attention. “I was having breakfast at one of my usual haunts when the manager noted that I was not getting the service a customer should. She asked, ‘Is there something I can help you with?’ I noticed she had a small amount of tattoo peeking out of her sleeveless blouse and I asked her to tell me about it,” recalled Schwartz. “She said, ‘I decided to dedicate my body




Everyone was more than happy to have their portraits shot and I had my first sample shots to show other potential “tattoo models” here in Pokhara. Before leaving, Hari gave me the address of Master Mohan, a tattoo artist extraordinaire who had the oldest shop in Kathmandu.

The next day I hailed a cab, handed the driver Mohan’s address and not ten minutes later found myself outside Mohan’s tattoo parlor. Mohan was ready to meet with me and could not be more friendly. Mohan prides himself as much a teacher of the art

I did it my way…

A career like Terry O’Neill’s is the stuff of legend, and a new book of his life’s work demonstrates why. Jon Stapley talks to the man behind hundreds of famous faces.

THE NEW book Terry O’Neill, published by ACC Editions, is pretty light on text.

It doesn’t even bother with a real title.

None of it is really necessary. Terry O’Neill needs no introduction. He’s spent decades photographing the most instantly recognisable faces that have graced the planet, and his iconic pictures say more than a biography ever could.

It’s hard to pin anything down about Terry’s style of portraiture.
