The legendary design team Charles + Ray Eames made films, houses and classic midcentury modern furniture.
Eames set the bar. Most furniture I see today has hints of the classic Eames aesthetic.
It is also a table.
Lesauskas's work represents a struggle to talk about social problems through design objects. Former soviet countries experience big problems with the integration of the handicapped into society.

About the Vice Photo Show Exhibition
Since 2002, Vice magazine has published yearly photo issues that are definitive surveys of what's happening in contemporary photography. Responsible for popularizing the early work of some of today's most respected and imitated photographers, the Vice Photo Issue is, well straight up influential. In celebration of this year's issue, Vice is showcasing the work of Dana Goldstein and Jamie Taete; two emerging photographers that the magazine is fond of.
"In honour of the 2009 Photo Issue, Vice is putting together two photo exhibitions in Montreal and Toronto to celebrate and supplement some of the new and founding talent we'll be featuring in this issue. Both shows will profile the work of two emerging and regular contributing photographers that we've become quite fond of— Dana Goldstein and Jamie Taete."

About Jamie Taete
Jamie Taete is a 24-year-old photographer from the exact center of England, whose general celebrity fixation runs so deep he legally changed his name to Jamie Lee Curtis Taete.Like most photographers we admire, Jamie seems able to seek out scenes that are beyond weird, yet they all seem to be happening just down the street from his apartment. His photos have appeared in publications such as Vice, Chief, and The Guardian. His work has also been featured in the Tiny Vices traveling exhibition in USA, Mexico, France, Britain, and Japan. He is currently a staff photographer and regular contributor to Vice UK, and he blogs at jamietaete.blogspot.com
