Muhammad Al-Husayan – Workers

Muhammad Al-Husayan captured the hard labour of physical construction work and turned it into an art form. A slow show ballet of Caterpillar machines on the shore of the Persian Gulf. With his strong compassion and love for art in all its forms, he explores the beauty of it in life. "Workers" was shot in Kuwait Khairan area where construction was made. I wanted to shoot and show people how those workers make our lives easier with...

Diana Lemieux

It's not easy to distinguish yourself as a conceptual portrait photographer, as there's tons of them out on Flickr who try and get a bit of recognition for their work. The photography of Diana Lemieux sets herself apart though! Based in Boston, she creates expressive female portraits that are both raw as emotional. "I started photography around 2005 when I was living in Brooklyn. I'm in Boston now which is my hometown. My passion is...

Yijun Liao – Experimental Relationship

As it's Valentine's day, why not do the obvious and start the day with a talk about relationships? They are so simple and, paradoxically, so complicated, so unpredictable and so full of possibilities. We accept the human being as social animal but love remains a mystery in our lives, even science is trying to explain it as hormonal reactions. "What does love look like? Anything. As long as two people match, no matter in what way,...

Ella and Pitr – The paper painters

French street artists Ella & Pitr have the most romantic story! She used to be a comedian, he a graffiti writer. They met each other in the streets of St. Etienne (France) while doing paste-ups. Now isn’t that just lovely coincidence? Their street art works consistst out of paste-ups that are subtile, yet hold a whole lot of emotion and humanity. "Since we started pasting in the streets we have always been thinking about how to...

James Kalinda

Exceptional work from Italian street artist James Kalinda! You can find his art on the walls of abandoned buildings, sometimes together with Centina, an artist we recently featured. His paintings are quite dark, something that extends in James’ sculptures which contain animal skeletons. But painting or sculpture, all of his works seem to lure at you directly. Besides being a (street) artist, James Kalinda is also an exceptional...

Carlos Nascimento – Drafts

The 26 year old Carlos Nascimento from Portugal is professionally speaking a sound engineer working in film and advertising sound post production. However, for the last 5 years he's been picking up the camera more often and firing away. So far it is just a collection of random shots, somehow it feels like a visual scrapbook. Not to push anyone or anything in a certain direction, but... I can see Carlos making a killer non-motion...

Lee Basford – Kushiro

I stumbled across the works of England based photographer (and super multi creative) Lee Basford in our Shuttercrack group on Flickr. With his images shot on the Japanese Island of Hokkaido he tells us the beautiful story of an old school working horse farm. What might seem to be the simple life is actually hard labour that requires a great set of skills. It might be hard to grasp for those caught up in the paper chase, but this...

Nick Pironio

Documentary / fine art photographer Nick Pironio, based in Raleigh, North Carolina, sent us some amazing photography the other day. Although the series he saw fit for us were good (‘last night’ & ‘Laura’), we personally favoured some of his other pictures. In his impressive photography portfolio we found striking portraits from barbershop college students, urban chicken ‘farmers’ and former U.S. senator and Democratic...

Jan Cieslikiewicz – Adventure around the corner

The photographs of Poland born Jan Cieslikiewicz got me by surprise when I saw a monkey in one of his pictures. Then I discovered that this guy has one sick portfolio of travel images. Maybe travel photography isn't the right word, I think he's uses traveling as a mere instrument to shoot his pictures. Most of my recent posts have been about people who set out to explore the world. I find it rather fascinating to read about the people...

Mike Heath – The Cuban mixture

For most people Cuba is just one vintage postcard with old cars, old people and old buildings. Everything is old and on the verge of breaking down. But in reality that is just the facade (or the lack of in a way). London based photographer Mike Heath captured Cuba in a way I've never seen before. He makes it feel so damn crispy and clean! This is very high quality travel photography and a huge inspiration for me personally!...
