London artist Mark Powell cleverly re-purposes old, used, and often tattered ephemera.

His sketches are made using only a Bic Biro pen, often incorporating the original stamps, logos, and addresses. 

Photographs by Adeline Mai

Photographs of people taken underwater naturally have an otherworldy feel to them and it can be easy to twist and maneuver the body into unique and visually interesting positions.

We’ve shared Nate Walton’s work in the past and today we revisited his Tumblr finding a bunch of new stuff, so why not keep you updated? Walton is Los Angeles-based photographer, whose grainy, naturally lit film photos more often than not focus on the subject of women (predominately their butts we’ve come to notice), but occasionally some other great stuff slides in there as well.
