She began to experiment with the art of self portraiture focusing on everyday life and the interaction with mundane objects in 2005. In July 2007 her passion began to pay dividends and her image entitled Cheap 70’s Porn ”, a self portrait, was used by the New York band The Strokes for the homepage of their website. In a tide of interest that ensued, she delighted in the 2008 Sony World Photography Awards selecting her image “Low Tide” across their website to advertise the photographic award. She is currently working on her ongoing self portrait project “The domestic life of electrical appliances and other stories” and also continuing the collaboration with Cristina Cocullo on a new project.  photo tumblr_mbdm1oZ0NP1r80hpto1_500_zps54f48e84.jpg

Matthias Heiderich

Matthias Heiderich is a superb photographer from Berlin, Germany. His mostly architectural dream-like photos have a unique, but calming palette that induces a placid smile on my face. You can see more of his work here.

Flora Borsi

"Nowadays almost every photographer use graphics software to complete the picture, like many painters used ‘original version’ in the past. Some artists use pure imagination to paint their artworks, others may prefer to create art by using a real life model as reference for the anatomy. What if these abstract models were real people?" - Flora Borsi (previously blogged)

I focus on their fullness and femininity, as a form of protest against discrimination set by media and by today’s society. What larger women embody to me is simply a different form of beauty. I believe we own ‘freedom of taste’ and one shouldn't be reluctant of expressing his inclination towards it. Limiting this freedom is living in a dictatorship of esthetics. I believe there are several ways to what is perceived as beauty, it is not measurable and has not got a standard size. I photograph my models nude and serene, to create a comfortable, proud and constructive representation of themselves in front of the viewer." - Yossi Loloi  photo 1_05fbwm_zpsdb216351.jpg  photo 1_04fbwm_zps7b1b6bdf.jpg
