Tre Logan is a writer and photographer living in Lexington, Kentucky. He lives just down the road from where the late Ralph Eugene Meatyard used to grind lenses. His work is gritty, raw and intimate. Without trying to be intentionally voyeuristic it gives an insight into the personality and the sensual side of the person in front of his lens.
The 24 year young Teja Vrbnjak Erbežnik has taken our heart by storm. The Slovenian beauty loves nature, dogs and paragliding. Together with photographer Ales Bravnicar they created an incredibly intense black and white series shot in Triglav National Park, Bohinj, Slovenia.
I’ve always been inspired by my grandma’s traditional East Coast Catholic decorating, and the fact that she has lived in the same house since she married my grandpa in the 1940s. It’s the house that my dad and all his siblings grew up in, and where I spent a lot of time as a child. I was excited to finally create something using this location that captured the dreamlike isolation that I always feel in the suburbs.”
Photographer Tania Morozova has truly created something special with her new series starring Anna B. With a minimal photo setting, she captures impressive forms and plays of light. An invitation to look closer, and to pay attention to small details in all their stirring beauty.
The warming autumn sun sets the perfect scene for Gladys Tan’s new series starring Éléonore Jeanne of V Management. “This is a story about her strolling around the city. It should feel like a “city adrenaline rush”, running with her black heels and wild hair.”
UK born singer songwriter Rheo Uno heralds the arrival of a bunch of releases over the coming months, with another new single and video ‘Señorita’. Also in her new release the young artist convinces with her powerful voice. Inspired by the romance of Latino, the sounds rush to a snappy polished pop-song.
How wonderful it is to stop for a moment to just breathe, relax and appreciate the moment. We often get too caught up doing one thing after another, thinking about what we have to do next. But life isn’t a race, it’s not a to-do list. We don’t realise how fast time goes by. We tend to go into a routine and stick to that. Forgetting our hopes and dreams, and we realise it when it’s too late. There’s so much more to life than that.
“Greenport invokes this feeling of being on a vacation to a foreign spiaggia in Positano, it has that magical beach port feel. Even though it was overcast, I created this story of Micaela being on a vacation for a day. Getting away from work, and spontaneously travelling to somewhere unknown to her. Ending up in a beautiful portside town and settling down for the day in a little nook away from her busy life.”
“Amanda is a good friend from Australia and last weekend while attending a BBQ, I happened to have my medium format camera, the bikini, and my beautiful friend Adriana Canals with me.” tells us photographer Ben Everden who perfectly highlighted the beautiful Kobu piece in this spontaneous shooting. “Shooting at a friend’s Balinese-inspired canal front property in Key Biscayne was the way this was meant to happen.”
I wanted my images to project carefree summer moments, running barefoot, getting the feeling that the time has stopped, and the only thing left to do is just enjoy summer, enjoy what this island and nature is so generously offering. The fact that I got to be the photographer, the model, and the editor all at the same time is what fascinates me most about self-portrait photography, plus the fact that nobody captures me the way I want.
“What I want is to get back to the girl who smiled at strangers. Who tried to understand people and their interior worlds because they were just as interesting as hers.” Bad experiences riddle even the kindest of people with distrust, and we battle more complex choices than what’s the right thing to do.
The latest track by singer-songwriter and producer NOËP feels like a fresh breeze and is the perfect sound to start the weekend. ‘No Man Is An Island’ is another great piece out of his forthcoming debut album, which will be released in November. The way the song has been composed, progressing more and more into a complex electronic upbeat track, provides surprises.
Toronto and Miami based photographer Daniel Cruz shares another wonderful series with us. This time he teamed up with beautiful muse Sarah Caamano of Elite Model Management Toronto. “Shooting by the beach came very naturally to me and Sarah. We both come from Latin backgrounds so it was nice to be able to enjoy a hot summer day in Toronto by the water and imagine we were on some tropical island off the coast of Colombia.”
We’ve only just seen Marina of Select Model London recently but it looks like we can’t get enough of her! This time we hear from her in these quick-fire questions which are accompanied by a lovely set of portrait images all shot on film and unedited.
We are always happy to welcome someone to our site. A big hello to Barcelona based photographer Enric Fradera who teamed up with model Nuria Oliu, stylist Alisa Varfolemeeva and make-up artist Marta Pequerul to create a classic, fashionable summer series. “Forgotten Summer is a tribute to this fleeting summer, where we have been able to recover a bit of the joyful and vital spirit of the summers past before the pandemic.”
