I don’t know much about Fox Eating Skyr, except that they are a video and photography production company based in North Italy, and that they produced this beautiful series of photos for the Winter 2014 season of fashion brand Lazzari. I fell in love with these when I saw them in Frankie Magazine and they reminded me a bit of the aesthetics of Wes Anderson: frontal photographies, colourful shots and a touch of the 70s. Aren’t these just great?

Jee Young Lee is a Korean artist who uses her studio to create these whimsical scenes. To do so, she doesn’t use any digital manipulation but instead she paints, makes and arranges the room to eventually take one single photo of it. Taking her inspiration from Korean tales and personal experiences, these self-portraits explore “her quest for an identity, her desires and her frame of mind”, according to OPIUM Gallery. Aren’t they poetic and beautiful? (via My Modern Met)

Uldus Bakhtiozina | Russ Land

Uldus Bakhtiozina is a Russian photographer. With this photo series, she brings to life popular Russian tales and aims to “express something deeper than today’s average trendy photo formula. I want to be learning something or feeling something when I’m looking at a photo – so I try to create the same experience with my photography. With my art. With my Life!”

Blending modern fashion photography and ethnic heritage, Uldus offers beautiful and dream-like images of her culture.

Rebecca Drolen | Hair Pieces

Rebecca Drolen‘s surreal photos explore the relationship we have with hair. Women wear their hair as a symbol of femininity, however hair can also be viewed as something non desirable depending on where it grows. She decided to use self-portrait and photography to examine the contradictions in our society concerning self image and this resulted in this series of dream-like images that make us rethink about modern days aesthetics and beauty criteria.

Prue Stent | Pink

Pink is usually neglected as a colour. Too feminine, too sweet, too innocent, too Barbie-like… not good enough to be considered as suitable for everyday use and even less in art and photography. Now this particular series by talented Prue Stent proves that pink IS a powerful colour. Using it, the photographer questions femininity and the standards of beauty according to modern day perception. Lively and playful, the series explores the struggle of identity in women.

Strange and poetic, Sofia Ajram‘s photography reveals a world of magic in which the viewers can dive in. Since there is no better introduction than by oneself, below is her bio:

“My given name is Sofia Ajram. I come from the Third Planet. I am fastened to the sensuous of the inner universe. I want to share with you the galaxies projected within and without: absolute space and absolute time. I want to share with you the stars contained by the new souls of my race, humanity, in its infancy. Let me show you something electromagnetic. Let me take you to the place where Their dreamscapes and Our reality exchange glances. Let me help you remember.”

At an age when no photograph hasn’t been filtered, corrected and enhanced via softwares such as Photoshop, it is rare to see more truthful images. Russian photographer Katerina Plotnikova has decided to break into realism and created these beautiful photographs with real animals. Using the service of wild animal trainers, she ensured that the shoot was safe for both the human and animal sitters. The result being this refreshing and poetic series. I am in love.

Grace Chon | Zoey + Jasper

I found one of these photographs whilst browsing Pinterest a few months ago. I instantly loved it (and pinned it) but I didn’t know that it was part of a series. Then I read this article and found out that these cute sitters were called Zoey and Jasper. Zoey is a rescued dog that photographer Grace Chon adopted and took photos of with her 10-months old son Jasper. Follow their Tumblr here, for more cuteness!

The Penniless Photographer

Penniless photographer Zeren Badar chose to express his creativity by re-vamping old masterpieces. Bold and playful, his photographs have been noticed by several art entities and websites. These are amusing, colourful and original. They also remind us that art of quality doesn’t depend on the amount of money spent to make an artwork, but on the creativity of the artist. Well done to Zeren, I hope you don’t stay penniless for much longer!

The Royal Family is so overwhelming popular here in England. Being French, it was quite a surprise for me to realize how much the members of royalty were looked upon. There isn’t a week when we don’t hear about them. However, all the info and photos we get are filtered and only a partial, glamorized version of their everyday life is allowed to be published.

English photographer Alison Jackson decided that it was high time for the public to have a sneaky peak behind the scenes. All these images are fake, with actors looking very similar to the real royals, but they still trigger a voyeuristic state within us. Maybe the Royals are just like everybody else after all?
