Michael Halsband


A charming interview with Michael Halsband, showing his brilliant and extensive catalog of work. We like his thoughts on the digital age and how composition is becoming more key as most cameras can do the hard bit now.

The iconic photo from the 1980s of Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat boxing each other is a personal favourite, and has always made me want to learn more about the photographer, Michael Halsband. So I recently sought him out for an interview. It wasn’t easy, but after many calls, I was able to track him down and he graciously agreed to meet me at his studio.

The Rolling Stones. James Brown. Iggy Pop. AC/DC. Johnny Depp — the list goes on and on. These are just a few of the legendary names that Halsband has worked with in his career. There is no question that he is one of the most influential and visionary photographers of our time.

Nomos Watches

The manufactory from Peter Wollring on Vimeo.

It’s nice to see things like this being made and to understand all the processes it encounters before it comes to market. Such a delightful insight into the world of true watchmaking & Design.

In the watch industry, producers are designated as ‘manufactories’ if they design their own movements and produce a significant part of the caliber themselves. NOMOS reaches a percentage of 75-95, depending on the model. It is one of only a few watchmakers with the designation of manufactory.
