My partner and I

Dita_Pepe_10

I am sure that most of you have played this game, wondering how would your life be if you have been with a specific partner, haven’t broken up, if you have said yes or no, if she/he has said yes or no. Czech photographer Dita Pepe takes these speculations literally, shooting her life in different scenarios in her series Self Portraits with Men. Pepe’s chameleon talents , comparable to Cindy Sherman, are focusing more to the social relationships and social conditions around the self , rather than transformations of the self (itself). For ‘props’ she is using different guys, different offsprings (including her daughter), different clothes, settings and different looks. In fact it is quite difficult to distinguish who is the outsider in every picture!

Sugar and junk food monsters by photographer James Ostrer. Supportingly the photographer wants to comment on obesity and our obsession with sugar stating (via the press release) “This adornment becomes a mask of what we eat which then becomes entwined with a hyper-pop sensibility and an obsequious inquiry into the great volumes of sugar that flow through our bodies.”

Its hard to be convinced though, as his models are thin (especially the girls) and so nicely adorned that you want to lick them! ( not so sure for the burger guy..)

Street art around Brick Lane in London. It is not anymore the edgiest area around and its currently heavily gentrified, but for the moment there is still some artistic expressiveness. At least until the developers take over.Pictures by WWT

‘Baba’ aka ‘the Godfather’

murat-the godfather

For his graduation thesis Turkish illustrator Murat Palta chose a witty and unexpected topic: “Classic movies in miniature Style” blending traditional Ottoman miniature portraiture style and motifs with themes from contemporary western cinema. The mix of  traditional representation, ornamentation and perspectives with Hollywood tales is great!

Beautiful and very emotional pictures of Timothy Archibald  trying to understand his autistic son’s condition, rituals and actions.Timothy said that this project also helped him make sense of the situation, his role as father, but most importantly, to accept his own son’s difference.

Saltaponts!

With the austere magic of rag doll, AlleHope (every, whole or full Hope) works the emotion of the margins, the edges and the levels. It’s about what can be done and what cannot, it’s a simple narrative’s present: Jump out and down, through and across and finally up. saltapontsQS_02
