Ewa Juszkiewicz000
Ewa Juszkiewicz’s dialectic between creation and destruction has been present since she started her cycle based on old masterpieces created between the Renaissance and the 19th century.

March 25, 2016

Shae Detar
Shae Detar's photography portrays the world she wishes to see. Borrowing from the surreality of nature, Shae paints photographs in brilliant pastels, making work that is visually stunning. Her models are predominantly naked, taking the photographs out of time, and giving them an other worldly sensation that, to quote Goldilocks, is just right. Check out her interview for more about how rad she is:

EK Interview: Evelyn Bencicova

EK_Evelyn Bencicova_MH
Evelyn Bencicova's photography is at once unnerving and beautiful in its symmetry, it makes a mockery of the human ability to over indulge cooperation. Her colors, whether brilliant red or quiet gray, pop out of the photograph, screaming into your eyes at the speed of light, but seemingly faster. My, oh my is her work something to marvel at. Check out her interview:

EK_MH_UCH
Adrian Storey is an alien. He's been traveling the world for the past decade and a half and as raw and uncompromising as his photography is, his words are possibly more-so. Honest about his successes, failings, frustrations, and appreciations, this is an interview to learn from. This isn't romanticism; this is the truth, brutal, and beautiful:

"These works are an homage to an often lost sensibility and quality, not simply the look, of Old Masters' works. They (con)fuse realities between politics and consumerism, pointing to an endless loop of transformative regeneration and redemption. Paint and Brush are ripe for visual wordplay: Women's work and their brush off from much of art history, whitewashing of culture, and bristling at patriarchy, bourgeois ideals and waste." -Rebecca Szeto, San Francisco, CA

Selina Mayer - Empty Kingdom - 2015
Selina Mayer is a UK based photographer who creates eerily intimate black and white images of both the human body and form as well as landscape. They are fashioned in the style of the old photographic masters (think Avedon, Penn, Weston), focusing primarily on the figure; the curves, crevices, shadows, and marks of all humans. Her images capture the delicate balance between sexy and vulnerable. selinamayer.com
