“Following the ending of a significant relationship in my life, an undoing began. Whilst adjusting to being a single woman, I started to create a photographic narrative based on the experience of losing love; directing other women to portray the gradual emotional and circumstantial stages, along the well-trodden track of the broken-hearted.” -Laura Stevens, London, UK

Uchujin- Adrian Storey

by

August 4, 2014

Art Blog - Uchujin - Empty Kingdom
Uchujin translates to "alien", and is the moniker for photographer Adrian Storey. A British photographer and filmmaker living in Tokyo states that he "would rather be an alien than an outsider". This statement speaks to his work, as each of his series explores those that live outside the confines of social expectations and norms. He travels widely and has worked as the director of photography for a 2011 documentary titled Twende Berlin, that is about activism in public spaces. His photography is honest, compelling, at times, dark and very much rooted in documentary. Check out his website for more film and photography!

EMPTY KINGDOM - Donation - Art Blog
Most of our faithful fans know that we here at EK do what we do simply for the love of Art. And if you don't know, now you know. We originally started our site to share our love of Art with the world, but it grew quickly from a fun side project to an intense, all-consuming labor of love, and now, we have been blessed with this beautiful baby whose life it is our job to nurture and grow in a positive, impactful way. Our dream is to be a 90/10 company, meaning we donate 90% of our company's net income and keep only 10%. Take a moment to think about how retardedly difficult that sounds. There isn't a businessman in the world who'd invest in a business plan like that.
