At the start of every year, we at It’s Nice That look forward to a side project that never fails to make us chuckle. It comes in the form of a calendar, a very funny one at that too. Daniel spends much of the year thinking about the next calendar and what 12 images can brilliantly entertain audiences for the coming year. Most recently, guinea pigs and their fantastic variety of haircuts served as the photographer’s muse but in previous years, Daniel has empowered laughs with cheeky-looking alpacas and silky-haired Afghan hounds living their best lives on the pools of luxury resorts. Elsewhere in Daniel’s work, the esteemed photographer has clients such as Helmut Lang, Office Magazine, Nicotine Magazine, AnOther and Wired. Here to discuss the power of his humorous side project, however, we can’t wait to sit back and relax with Daniel later this month.

Archief Cairo

Established in 2018, Archief Cairo is a multilingual lab for research, preservation and communication founded by Hana Neuman, Maram Al Refaei, Sherine Salla and Ryan Vicente Lee Grees. A design collective that started by documenting the vernacular of the street, it has captured the visual essence of the Egyptian capital through a series of explorative projects focusing on how Arabic visual culture is perceived through the five senses. Touching on Cairo’s unique creative scene and the rich cultural history that informs it, the collective will also, interestingly, discuss a side project like no other. Approximately a year before the pandemic, Archief Cairo started work reviving a letterpress at the French Institute of Oriental Archaeology which houses the only letterpress with hieroglyphics in the world. Talking us through the cultural significance of this project and revealing hidden insights into this typographic wonder, Archief Cairo will also share its ethos of using the street to delve into “unknown, forgotten or almost disappearing knowledge”.
