Francesca in Brooklyn

I have more film in my fridge than food. Lovely photographs by film-based photographer Francesca Tallone. Surface Magazine Avant Guardian winner in 2006, Francesca now shoots regularly for art-focused fashion mags like Antler. Most recently she participated in Silent Noise, a one-night art auction in Brooklyn on June 3rd, 2010. It’s fun to watch the...

Sultry via New York

An assortment of shots from New York-based photographer Alex Freund. I was drawn to the work on his blog moreso than his main portfolio site.  The work is a little less focused, a little less prepared, a little more caught-in-the-moment-magical.

Garance Love via Paris

I’ve been admiring the French illustrator and style blogger, Garance Dore‘s site for a few years and thought I’d share a little of its goodness.  For those of you who are still discovering the lovely photos and documentation of her global travels with boyfriend Scott Schuman (better known as The Sartorialist), enjoy.

Portbury in Sydney

The work of photographer Simon Portbury is currently on display at the Iain Dawson Gallery in Paddington, NSW in Australia.  Selections from his Tokyo Drift series will be displayed alongside the work of Maree Alexander, Sam Ash and Leila Jeffreys.  Take a look…

Bugged Out in Brooklyn

Check out the work of Brooklyn-based photographer Thomas Prior. He’s not only the producer of some darn gorgeous images, but this thirty-year-old charmingly halfheartedly keeps up a blog called the curving hip, the soothing shade. Talented, humble and funny. Thomas seems like good guy to have a beer with or hire to shoot your next...

Happy Day, Planet

In honor of our cute-yet-eruptive planet, I’ve posted photos of and views from it via a site that I love: NASA’s Picture a Day. In their words, “Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer.” Personally, I would love to...

Sunny Brooklyn

Sunny shots from Brooklyn for your Saturday via NYC-based photographer Valery Rizzo. You should check out this great blog while you’re at it.

Moody Morning

Work by Flora Hanitijo, New York-based photographer by way of Macau and Montreal. Hanitijo has received a slew of laudable accolades, including being named in PDN 30 as a photographer to watch in 2009. I’ve had her work bookmarked for months and thought this cloudy morning was the perfect time to showcase her work.

Saturated in Los Angeles

Los Angeles-based artists James Welling recently exhibited work from his “Glass House” series at Regen Projects gallery.  These bold, beautiful visuals were taken over a three year period at the Philip Johnson Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut. I’m really drawn to their magical quality and thought it best to share the love.

Magnum in Georgia

In 2009, Magnum sent ten photographers to Georgia to capture its “renaissance, its revival, its awakening.” The project resulted in eleven web documentaries, a book, a touring exhibition and this beautiful website. Photos above by Thomas Dworzak, Martine Frank, and Martin Parr.

Whimsical in the UK

Delicate observations and comments on the world from a young artist in London via The Unicorn Diaries. Presumably penned by artist Bunny Mitford, the work and writings deliver me to the heaviness and magic of being a young girl. Dreamlike, whimsical, syrupy sweet and melancholy. It’s easy to get lost here on a just-right hazy...

Creative Mash-Up in Los Angeles

Raymond Molinar is one of dozens of artists (and skateboarders) represented this Friday at This gallery in Los Angeles. Photographers and husband-and-wife duo Jeremy and Claire Weiss are two of the five artists behind this newly formed creative space in the Highland Park neighborhood of LA. Some familiar names showing on Friday include Shepard Fairey,...
