This Is Not A Love Song, Part. X: Donari Braxton

This is not a love editorial. Somehow, this wants to be a sort of an introduction into another world, where, love exists, don’t worry, but, in other forms, more rudimental, more vivid, more natural, without that tricks you are seeing, daily, on TV or which airs on the Radio Station, tender and sweet and namby-pamby shity songs. To be short, we are […]

Daria Amaranth’s Lugubrious Portraits Narrate Wordless Stories

Daria Amaranth is a photographer based in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. Her artworks consist mainly of series of melancholic, Victorian-like photographs that mix together nature, fauna and deep emotions.

Brett Walker – Speaking Through Photographs, Not Words

Somewhere around a week ago, I wrote to Brett Walker, with the hopes of writing this article. I asked him to tell me a few things about himself, about his “accomplishments” within the art field, generally what does he have to say about himself as a creator, a photographer and as a person, so I could […]

The Red District of Andrei Burcea’s Mind

I opened up two Tumblr blogs to get the text going. The big, black & white, eye-raping pictures start developing. The crimson, blood-dissolving red pictures, start flowing. My useless thirst to gather visual waste tells me that I know Andrei, even though he doesn’t know me (I’m the epitome of stalking). But I don’t know […]

Irina Gache – Sink At The Bottom of Oceans And Seas

Irina Gache has a way to expose through photography and writing, things which are close to what is buried and repressed within people. Things close to their darkness and the inner child which we all have and choose to lock up as we age. We lock him up somewhere far away and then throw the […]

Cristiana Cott Negoescu – Bioluminescent creature thinking in multiple dimensions

Cristiana is for me one of those people with whom I couldn’t ever reach a wall (like an end) of consciousness, imagination, thought and knowledge, even if I would live outside of time. When I say wall, I’m talking about a blockage, an end – the consumption of the creative source that lies within her. […]

Clothe Me With The Nakedness of Your Shadow. Julie Munier

  You can dress my existence, with the nakedness of your shadow, my dear! This phrase it came in my semi-poetic mind when I saw the Julie’s photo-journal, if I can call it that way. Shapes. Everything moves around shapes. The human shapes and their eroticism, to be more accurate.  Julie Munier is a very […]

Riot-Art: A Chat With Andreea Retinschi, The Girl Who Documented The #Colectiv Protests

One of the meanings of “riot-art”: the art of portraying people and meaningful scenes during protests. Andreea Retinschi, the “pink-haired” Romanian artist specialized in fashion and nude photography turned out to be one of the most relevant photo-journalists (let’s say riot-artists) these days.  She actively participated (and still does, as we speak) at the latest protests […]

Lepage’s Photography Deconstructs Women’s Portraits Using Picasso’s Cubism

Jean-François Lepage is a photographer who can easily be considered a painter, due to his working methods. I would compare without any reservations his powerful pictures to Picasso’s cubist masterpieces. The way he cuts the lines directly through the subject’s face or body, the unexpected contrasts between warm and cold tones. As Lepage states on […]
