We were introduced to professional photographer Shantanu Starick by the team at Ladro Restaurant. Shantanu travels around the world without using money. His project, The Pixel Trade is down to earth genius. He trades his services and edited photographs in return for the necessities: food, shelter and transport. Collaboration in its purest form.
The Pixel Trade has evolved over several months as a stunning visual diary capturing businesses, products, food, eating houses, people and stunning, rarely photographed homes from Australia to New Zealand and across the Pacific to Los Angeles and New York. Shantanu has an intimate quality in his work that is undeniably unique and beautiful!
As part of our introduction to Shantanu we were afforded the privilege of offering something to trade. Our inaugural Reader Dinner One Night in Milan, at Ladro Greville is set to be a melting pot of foodies, designers, retailers, team Est and of course our readers. Shantanu has agreed to be there too. We can’t wait to share the pixels and continue the trade.
