” The critters you see in these pics are wild chipmunks that live in my folk’s backyard. Using a few simple techniques, I was able to get them to socialize with us on a regular basis (and certain chipmunks would even come to the yard when I whistled.) Each of them were quite comical and very easy to get along with, as you can probably tell from these pictures. And in case there is any doubt, I want to assure you that these pictures are real and not clever composites made in Photoshop. Chipmunks can be very easy to get along with, once you’ve taken the time to befriend them. ” – Chris McVeigh (previously-blogged)

‘ I am truly part of the Blue peter generation, I just love making and decorating, whatever the medium or subject. My father the late David Lawes, was a Scenic Artist working for theater companies such as the Royal Opera House & ENO and this wet my appetite for working with many mediums, production design & all things theatrical. My interest in Tech-effect costume also blossomed from a young age when he worked with the amazing costume designer Eiko Ishioka. My mother was a brilliant potter, and that inspired me to work with clay, to sculpt & to model make. I went on to study at Chelsea College of Art & Design in 1994 where I honed my skills in painting, sculpting, design & illustration. ‘ – Natasha Lawes

Works by Amsterdam-based photographer Isabella Rozendaal. ‘ What Isabella enjoys most is photographing the remarkable and humorous things she encounters in real life, preferably expanding her fascination into substantial documentary projects. She likes to think big. She tends to pick subjects that are well documented and clichÃ© and shows them from a new perspective, conveying her vision on them. Bookmaking is her favorite thing. Though she has an awareness of and love for the aesthetics of photography, conveying her wonder and surprise at the world is her main objective. Other interests include cowboys, pork, sweaty concerts, sunsets, and fruit. ‘

‘ Much has already been written on the relationship between death and photography, on reality and fiction, on the blurring of genres-all fundamental themes in the discussion around contemporary photographers and the work of Katerina Jebb. Using a variety of techniques- scanners, photocopy machines and conventional cameras- Jebb almost denatures life, capturing the familiar and re-presenting it to us as something alien and otherwordly. As with the daguerreotype, Jebb’s images feel like a dim and fading memory which momentarily saves the sitter from inexorable destruction in the form of the photographic trace. ‘ (via Fred and Associates)
