There's nothing cute and cuddly about Laura Zalenga's photographs. The German does not hold back one bit as she explores the depths of our emotions...raw and unfiltered.
At only 21 years of age, it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to call Zalenga a prodigy. She only started taking photographs since 2007, yet her work stands for itself, showing a maturity that could only come with pure and… Continue

Growing up in the Midwest, photographer Lori Nix was used to extreme weather - tornados, floods, blizzards, fire and drought.

Belgian photographer Koen Demuynck is my kind of guy. By looking at his work you can tell he's an "out of the box" visionary who must be half genius, half crazy. But on the real, Koen definitely has one of the most creative minds I've come across in design. You've probably seen some of the countless advertisements he's created without even knowing it. Here are some… Continue
