When I first found this story, I was clearly attracted by the stunning visual beauty of the photography. Which was obviously the primal intention in building this pictorial.
The Artisans. The name alone is a trigger for every crafty / creative soul out there! Commissioned by and featured in the Men’s Journal, The Artisans series was photographed by John Midgley and portrays New – York based craftsmen. Inspired and inspiring people like The Mast Brothers (who make and wrap by hand their Mast Brothers Chocolate, you can see more about them right after the jump), Frenel Morris, the milliner, Marcel Mrsan, the shoe maker and Palo Samko, the woodworker. Handmade things are wonderful, filled with heart and magic! Just look at these images, don’t they look like pages torn from a spells book?
