Erotica // Friday, April 13, 2012
'Photography holds all the intrinsic values of all the other arts; but it is the foundation of the origins of existence. My creations are the exploration of my inner facilities; in the pursuit of contemporary knowledge expressing “original thoughts”. States Neil Craver "Nothing can exist without the photon, and every aspect is controlled by it’s usage" Neil Craver's collection of Underwater Nude Rock Quarry shots are one of my all time favorites. Gorgeous.

Illustration // Friday, April 13, 2012
Blaine Fontana currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon.

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 13, 2012
We can't believe this hasn't been done before, and at least to our knowledge, it hasn't been done better than UK-artist Kyle Bean's egg shell sculpture that makes an incredibly detailed chicken. Very good work indeed.
