Highly trained acrobats precariously hang in mid-air. While this may sounds like a description for a circus act, it's actually far from it. Poland-born artist Jerzy Kediora (JOTKA) recently showed some of his magnificent sculptors at this year's Kinetica Art Fair in the UK. On a simple strip of wire, his sculptures seem to magically balance themselves, challenging the rules of physics, and… Continue

23-year-old Elizaveta Porodina is one of those fashion photographers who can take an idea and run with it.
