Peter Bellerby's futile search for the perfect globe for his father's 80th birthday gift led him on an unexpected journey, culminating in him founding Bellerby & Co. in 2008. Based out of London, Bellerby is one of two globemakers who still handmake their globes, and his team's dedication to the craft has seen their globes featured in Hollywood films, and they count The Louvre as one of their clients! This video shows Bellerby and trusted assistant Jon delicately placing gores on a globe.

Nazish Zafar has taken her passion for small businesses and start-ups, from school all the way into the real world! Having completed her PhD in Sociology at Johns Hopkins University, Nazish’s research was about the survival and growth of small businesses and start-ups. She eventually launched Shopkeeper Stories, an online photographic project featuring small business owners from an eclectic mix of trades. From fishmongers, florists, and lingerie sellers, the delightful vignettes capture the practical wisdom necessary to running a business. @ShopkeeperStories continues to flourish while Nazish keeps busy with her specialisation in qualitative research, a job that’s taken her to Brazil, Russia, USA, and Singapore! Her work has put human faces to businesses and reminds us that behind every small business is more often than not, family.

The coastline has been an important part of Singapore’s existence, from its existence as a sleepy fishing village, to the maritime hub it is today, and it’s appropriate that photographer @weixianglimsg has been documenting scenes along our coastline since 2012. The pastel-hued images depict serene and surreal images which look like stills from an arthouse film. Having spent five years as a General Paper teacher in a Junior College here, Weixiang is deft across a variety of photography style, with his work taking him from the studio, shipyards and construction sites, football fields, and all across Asia! Weixiang’s empathetic lens and love for Singapore shines true in his work, and reminds us not to forget that beaches aren’t just for tanning—they’re a critical part of our nation’s lifeblood!
