His style is crisp, almost in a Wes Anderson-esque way and in his words, he giving us a "series of photo and video portraits of contemporary inventors from all walks of life".

I don't know about you, but the Vimeo team loves abandoned places. The Abandoned Places Group features a whole slew of videos filmed in the forgotten places of this world.

If you're in a public place, just see if there any maitenence people around that can turn them off for you. Tell them Mark from Vimeo said it was okay.
