"Spirit Stories" by Jessica Hines

Photography // Friday, February 13, 2015
“Lured by the mystery of what lies beneath the water of a swamp, I became transfixed by the bright rainbow colors that appear every January on the water’s surface,” says photographer Jessica Hines when describing the inspiration behind her series Spirit Stories. 

The Photography of Lars Botten

Erotica // Friday, February 13, 2015
We have seen many photos of Lars Botten over the years, but never could put a name to the images. The Norwegian-born Botten works both in fashion and editorial projects, mixing tasteful nudes with almost nostalgic Hollywood style portraits. 

Young Guns

Photography // Friday, February 13, 2015
In her series “Young Guns”, photographer Caroll Taveras documented the young participants in the Cowboy Fast Draw Competition in Denver, Colorado. Though they are all competing in the same competition, each child seems to have their own cowboy persona.

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 13, 2015
16th-Century Netherlandish prayer nuts are intricately carved wood items of devotion, and when one is closed it looks like an elaborate nut. These symbols of status from the Middle Ages were worn on a rosary, a belt or a sack by the wealthy in northern Europe.

Lights! Camera! Glamour! The Photography of George Hurrell

Photography // Friday, February 13, 2015
Today may be the premiere of THAT movie but this show is about 50 Shades of Black and White. Or somehow more. Light! Camera! Glamour! The Photography of George Hurrell at the Walt Disney Family Museum just opened, and it literally glows. Each jewel of a photo demonstrates how the gifted photographer used light and shadow to create a story in stillness with a gifted actor.

Merve Morkoc's Disturbed Portraits

Illustration // Friday, February 13, 2015
Hailing from Istanbul, Turkey, the morbid undertones of the work of Merve Morkoc can be felt without hesitation. Her aquarel and pastel pencil illustrations are a delightful blend of delicate portraits with a touch of the unexpected grotesque.

Nadia Lee Cohen's Erotic Retro Daydream

Erotica // Friday, February 13, 2015
Although only 22 years old and still in her final year at the London College of Fashion, fashion photographer and "ugly-pretty" connaisseur Nadia Lee Cohen has nonetheless already received numerous noteworthy accolades for her highly stylized, retro-saturated images inspired by the darker side of 1960's Americana. Cohen builds her own sets on a shoestring student budget, which is a testament to her skill as her photoshoots never fail to look beautifully polished and conceptually compelling.
