Atlas Inspiration

Atlas Magazine

Inspiration is what Atlas is all about. Whether it's inspiring the aspirational photographer to get their work out there, to give that writer the motivation to do their first reading, or to rid that illustrator of their creative block, it's what we are here to do. We thrive off beautiful imagery, so we thought it would be wonderful idea to start inspirational blog posts to keep everyone full of creativity, be it for your next photoshoot, illustration, article or garment design. 

If you think your work is inspiring, why not use the hashtag #atlasinspiration on Instagram and you may get a feature! We're constantly looking for work to share with our readers. What could be better than inspiring them with the work of a newcomer like you?

I've gathered this first set of inspiration for our Adrenalin Issue, which will be out in March 2015. Submissions open on the 1st of November until the 31st of December 2014. We're thinking sports, extreme emotions, fast paces. It's all about that rush.

Chanel Number 5 by Baz Luhrmann

Atlas Magazine

I nearly screamed last night when this video went live. You have no idea how excited I get when Baz Luhrmann does anything, let alone a Chanel ad. 

Anyone who knows me well knows two things:

1) I will one day own a Classic Flap Bag by Chanel. 

2) I think Baz Luhrmann is a visual genius. 

Baz has been in my life for quite some time now. (I say this like I know him...) But I have a very clear memory of the day my Mum *accidentally* took me to see Moulin Rouge when I was 9 years old. She had seen it already, and I'd seen the trailer for it on TV. I was a strangely romantic child, and thought the film looked amazing. I begged her to take me, and she did. 

I was excited and as soon as it began, totally captivated by the colour, music, Ewan McGreggor and sparkly elephants. We watched the whole first part in awe and then the film paused for an intermission (yes, cinema's still did that when I was a kid... Am I getting old?) and we went to the ladies room (I'm not going to call it at toilet, because its Baz Luhrmann and Chanel, we've got to be proper!). Whilst we were in there, my Mum turned and said: 

"Olivia, I've made a terrible mistake. We're going to have to go home. You're too young for this." 

Clearly, she'd realised that I was perhaps a bit young to be faced with the realities of prostitution in bohemian Paris in 1900. So, much to my disgust, we left half way through the film. I've still not forgiven her for that because I had to wait another two years to see what happened next! 

I'm 22 now, and I've seen every film Baz has ever made. I know Romeo & Juliet by heart, I fell in love with Leo all over again in The Great Gastby, I've decided I will one day smash it on the dance floor thanks to Strictly Ballroom and definitely want to go live in the Australian outback for a while just so that I can ride on horses with Hugh Jackman for a while. I mean, who wouldn't? 

But even better yet is the combination of Baz's incredible visual style with that of the iconic Chanel. I've watched this fashion film about 5 times already (pun intended), and the colours, music, clothes, movement, it all just takes me away to a place of dreams. Baz Luhrmann has a way of transporting you into this perfect dream world where everything is vibrant and beautiful and you never ever want to leave.
