What a poignant reminder about how the words "Winter Collection" can take on an entirely different meaning depending on the person. New Ark Mission of India dressed up poor street kids in their everyday clothes - discarded newspapers, sacking and cardboard - and then photographed them for these moving posters.
The Mission is an organization solely dedicated to rescuing and rebuilding the… Continue
It's amazing what Guram Dolenjashvili can do with just a pencil. The Georgian artist creates black and white landscapes so realistic, if you looked at his pieces from far away, you could mistake his artwork for photographs. The way he controls light and shadow is especially impressive...…
Over a year ago, I wrote about Barcelona, Spain-based Lara Alegre's wonderfully sweet photography. Since then, a lot has changed. Though Alegre's still capturing beautiful and emotive moments, her focus has slightly changed.

What is it about the Olympics that keeps us glued to the screen, jumping/shouting/screaming at the tv like we've completely lost our minds? The easy answer is that we're in awe of these athletes - the ones who have trained tirelessly for years and, for some, a lifetime for their chance to show us, their country, the world and themselves that they are the best.
