New Additions to "The Far Side of the World" by Josh Keyes

In Portland-based painter Josh Keyes’ series Old Ones, he features a soaring bald eagle, an elk sitting quietly in a green forest, and a bear looking at the world on his hind legs. It all sounds normal, but the elk’s antlers double as tree branches, and the brown bear is taller than all of the pine trees. For more than several years now, Keyes has painted realistically-rendered portraits…

Surreally Visualizing the Reality of Life

Sweden-based photographer Tommy Ingberg takes us on a surreal journey that has been two-and-a-half years in the making. The black and white series titled Reality Rearranged depicts an often-solitary, faceless man morosely trekking through life. There's a bareness to the series that is both intriguing and mystifying. It appears somewhat minimalist, devoid of any elaborate…
