Simple Pleasures


Good kitchen tools — they make cooking so much more enjoyable. I have a wooden spoon that I always reach for, over several others — it's just the right weight and shape, and always reaches the awkward corners of the pot when making a sauce or busily stirring risotto. Do you have an old favourite in the kitchen that you always turn to?

Inside Roy Lichtenstein's Studio







Photographer Laurie Lambrecht worked as a part-time assistant to Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein from 1990 to 1992, helping him to inventory his studio in preparation for his 1993 retrospective at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in Manhattan. Lichtenstein encouraged Lambrecht to take photographs of the process, and her new series is a rare insider's view of the painter's studio and working environment. See more photos and read the rest of the Lens Culture article here, too. Via 3quarksdaily.
