Probing and provocative, the work of Natalia Edenmont
explores popular culture through the medium of photography. Through the juxtaposition of opposing subjects and aesthetics, Edenmont’s work is rife with a characteristic tension as she explores themes including the deceptive nature of cultural norms, conformity, the repression of the individual, and double standards in western society. With a strong embrace of symbolism, and clear references to historical genres of art, Edenmont’s artful, and frequently beautiful, arrangements can be viewed as a modern expression of traditional iconography.

'Russian photographer Vadim Mahorov
goes to death-defying heights for the perfect shot. While the thrill of scaling buildings, towers and monuments is part of the allure, the dramatic aerial landscapes Vadim captures are absolutely breathtaking. Although many are quick to lump Vadim with other youths simply looking for the rush of infiltrating places they shouldn’t be, Vadim shows a clear passion for photography. Some of the images below show the dizzying heights he and his friends scale, while other shots show the beautiful scenes he captures from his unique vantage points not many photographers will ever reach. This gives his work a unique perspective of cities around Russia. Vadim runs a very active blog at livejournal.com
where he shares all of his work and travels. All of the images are full screen and it’s inspiring to see his photography skills develop over the last few years.' (via twisted sister

Troy Mattison Hicks
and This Art Is Yours
is another one of those guys who's too talented for his own good. Viewing his online photo gallery left me hungry for more. He says, " I have always been an experimenter. My heroes are never people. I dwell more on creative achievements manifested by spontaneity and chance. Experimentation can lead to many great things. Small mistakes can end up having grand results. I can't imagine knowing what I am about to create. I enjoy the process of not knowing.." Check out Troy’s upcoming show at Yashar Gallery
in Greenpoint Brooklyn. The show runs from April 5th - April 25th, 2012.
