"Outsized" by Gerco De Ruijter

Photography // Tuesday, July 22, 2014
The process of artist Gerco de Ruijter (Netherlands, b. 1961) sometimes includes flying a kite armed with a camera to obtain a bird’s eye view.

Aldo Tolino's "Crumbled Faces"

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 21, 2014

Hellen Van Meene

Photography // Sunday, July 20, 2014
Hellen Van Meene’s portraits of feminine youth float in a realm between fragility and power. The faces of each subject are the complete focal point of each square frame, supported by minimal locations and pastel walls. Today, these backgrounds may be commonly seen in contemporary portraiture but seem stylistically ahead of the game at the time that much Van Meene’s earlier work was created.
