Wandering through Christoph Sillem's photographic series A World Around Disney is like wandering through a Disney cartoon. However, SIllem's photographs are not representing any kind of stage set. Sillem has discovered the community of Val d'Europe. This surreal housing complex is the one that surrounds Disneyland, Paris, a large scale neighborhood erected to accommodate the employees of the nearby destination.

Artist Julian Baker asks the question, 'What does it mean to be naked?' To some it is an erotic experience or one that is funny-- but Baker says there are "no answers just a luscious, erotic and sometimes alarming quest." Take a look at some of his photographs and explore the question yourself.

Perhaps because this author spent most of his Fourth of July holiday in a county that is shared with Lucas' Skywalker Ranch, but when we saw these fantastic famous photographs recreated with Star Wars characters, we felt a bit if kinship. Of course, I would expect to see two Stormtroopers kiss after the end of a great galactic war.

'Known for his no holds barred ability to capture the essence of his subjects, Nick Farrell's vision is often high-gloss, beautiful and always provocative... Regardless the medium, Farrell continually exposes life's dramas showing sexual tension in a youthful and liberated way that documents rather then exploits his subjects.'

Photo montage and collage have the inherent power to juxtapose and arrange strange and foreign subjects creating new associations from unlikely pairings, a re-occuring motivation and end goal for artist's working in this medium. The result from this process is usually a variety of relationships that are telling of particular aspects of the given subjects.

From Isabel M. Martinez, creator of the photography series, Quantum Blink: "The photographs in Quantum Blink are composed of two exposures taken instants apart. The striped pattern is the result of masks placed in-camera, this feature allows me to blend two images together and at the same time keep them from fully fusing onto one another."

Austrian artist Erwin Wurm, probably one of the most innovative contemporary artists we can think of that can seemlessly involve conceptual, sculptural, installation, and mixed media works all into one piece, is set to revisit and showcase his late 1990's project, One Minute Sculptures, at Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool, England.

Ethereal forms come together with our natural environment in the sexy photographs of young, Colombian self-taught photographer Daniel Gonzalez. His images have a suggestive elegance, capturing an almost internalized essence of his models with the gestures of their bodies. With a body of work which is mostly analog, Daniel experiments frequently and is not afraid to play with double images, and traditional techniques.
