BEAUTY: Photography--Ben Sandler
Inspired by the television show "Mad Men" and films of the original period, Parisian photographer Ben Sandler rented legendary Finnsih architect and designer Alvar Aalto's historic Maison Carré (which was designed and created by Aalto for Frenchart dealer Louis Carreé), and shot a series of photos that reflects the period's fascination with the future. Titled "Tomorrowland," this is retro and the shape of things to come at once. The lighting fixtures are original to the building, which is now an Aalto museum.
