Jay Hynes is a Melbourne-based photographer who specialises in advertising, portrait and music photography. His latest series, Grandmas Rock, is brilliant. The classic black rock band shirts that we associate with that rebel within us are worn by unassuming grandmas as they go about their business drinking tea and making beds in their own homes. […]
As a photographer, I was looking for something new and exciting to shoot. I discovered a very interesting and historical dance called Belly Dancing, which is a translation of the French term ‘danse du ventre’. Belly dancing is primarily a torso-driven dance, with an emphasis on articulations of the hips while the name itself is […]
Sarah Flora’s paintings focus on capturing and constructing memories that she is terrified of losing and creating the life she desperately wants to have. They are an obsessive reminder of small moments that would be otherwise forgotten and lost.

Wow. To cheer up a 12-year-old boy who has muscular dystrophy and has to steer away from most physical activities, Slovenian photographer-psychologist Matej Peljhan shot a photo series of him doing what he wished he could: play basketball, swim, breakdance break dance, swim and even fly thanks to a red balloon. Looking at these pictures, […]
Curated by Stuart Pilkington, the Someone I Know project involves photographers taking a portrait of someone they know: ‘It’s a chance for the people taking part to see if they can express their relationship with someone through means of a photograph.’ We know it’s a simple idea, but you know, it’s an elegant one. We […]
This series of photographs by Greensboro-based design professional Carra Sykes provides a glance into her close relationship with her mother. The inspiration came from her uncle as he is always joking with Carra’s mum and asking her if she is wearing Carra’s clothes.
Brooklyn-based photographer Van Sarki got the idea for his Burlesque Compere series when he realized one of his college friends was a burlesque star.

At first sight, Canadian photographer François Brunelle’s pictures appear like conventional family portraits. But it’s all the more astonishing that the people you see on his photos don’t even know each other.
When I was little, I used to dream about being a dancer, or that I could fly, and that I would learn to speak the language of the animals in the forest, or that of the most dramatic actor. With the click of a finger, I’ve found a way to make these things come true. Hey presto.

Illustration has been part of my life for ever in one way or another: drawing at school at the end of the notebook, working or just painting every wall I could. When I draw, I feel like I leave a small part of me in that drawing, because an image is worth more that words. My most recent project is called Good Girls and it consists of five illustration of five different women I once met, including myself. Every one of them is viewed as a bad girl as a consequence of their actions, but if anyone would get to know them, they would realize that they are good girls inside. People tend to judge other people really quickly, without giving them a chance. My illustrations want to send a message, to make you think twice before giving someone a label.
Chicago photographer Lisa Predko’s work has a vibrant style that is unmistakable. Her series, Head Vases, is simple in its idea but exhibits a new type of pop art portraiture arousing energy and emotion, not only from the subjects themselves, but also in their composition and colouring.
Chilean-born artist Alvaro Tapia’s artwork has a timely appeal in its zombie apocalyptic look. Even the most beautiful of his subjects have a disturbing yet electric look in their eye. His artwork is riveting.
