“Eye Heart Spleen is a body of work by English artist Camila Carlow. 13 photographs representing human organs sculpted out of wild plants and weeds foraged in Bristol. The plants were collected and assembled early in the day, so as to photograph them in the best possible light, and to keep them from wilting. This work invites the viewer to regard our vital structures as beautiful living organisms, and to contemplate the miraculous work taking place inside our bodies, even in this very moment.”

‘Skin is almost a poetry. Skin is the ‘box’ of our body. We all have different type of skin, from Extra White to Dark Black. Shooting Skin is a mind work, because you can see the soul of women or men behind the camera. Skin is absolutely private: the eye can found a secret scar, a strange mole, a wonderful curve, or a part of the body that it doesn’t like. ‘ – Winkler+Noah

” Ongoing project, where I use light and colored background to make plastic bags look magical. Creating a landscape within the plastic bag. Plastic bags are a huge contributor to the landfill waste, and are extremely harmful for our oceans and the creatures living there. Do not say yes to a plastic bag when shopping. These plastic bags were found in the street.” – Vilde J. Rolfsen
” In my artwork, I produce visual reflections on the interaction between cultural topics like aesthetics of the self (appearances), emotions (and their relation with values) and behaviour (patterns of interaction). Photography has allowed me to construct images raising questions about current stereotypes on issues like immigration, consumerism, or romantic love. My pictures often include characters portrayed on backgrounds with a particular social narrative. I play with the appearance of these characters (for instance, the aesthetics of a successful life) to reflect upon issues like the achievement of wills or the expression of unsatisfied desires in the consumerist society.My pictures are often produced through a complex process, since I require the involvement of a number of specialists: actors, assistants, stylists, etc. A shooting session usually involves spending many hours in production before and after the actual shooting. For instance, searching for locations and characters is a long and ever changing process. In fact, I usually keep record of the process by video capturing all situations in relation with my work. My relationship with all these people is essential to the final result.” – Marta Soul
