Best of 2014: Roger Ballen, Asylum of the Birds

Vault // Wednesday, December 31, 2014
Few photographers reach a point in their creative journey where the visual dialect is unmistakably and inimitably their own. In our current image-flooded culture, those who are able to patent their own aesthetic should be commended and valued. I am, and have been, on image overload for some time, constantly confusing one photographer with another. Exceptional talent is in short supply

Best of 2014: Pink, A series by Prue Stent

Erotica // Tuesday, December 30, 2014
Let's take a moment to celebrate the color pink, in all its glory, in all its rare use in the natural world or art in general. For some reason, seeing this great series of Pink by Melbourne's Prue Stent made us realize just how rare pjnk is used, or better yet, how rare it is that pink is used well. From Staged Photography, "The themes of her photography center around femininity and the struggle of identity in women. The color pink is used to represent femininity either physically or emotionally throughout her work."

Best of 2014: Photographs by Hermann Försterling

Erotica // Monday, December 29, 2014
Hermann Försterling is a German painter and photographer whose photographs of the human body we have been admiring for the last couple weeks. Using a copper plate etching technique that transfers the photographs to hand-made papers, the artists creates often uncomfortable images of an almost corpselike presentation of the human body. At the same time, the photographs are a beautiful celebration of the human form. Be sure to explore his site for more work!
