Joel Sossa shows us once more that it’s not about just taking a picture, it’s about capturing the right moment with just the right people. He makes it look so easy, but for any of you whom have shot a lookbook or editorial attempting to stage scenes like this, you know it’s not that simple.
With summer just around the bend we found it fitting to feature the photography of Jenavieve Belair. Her knack for positioning herself around stunning, stylish young women makes us all want to be so lucky. Jenavieve paints a picture of a perfect summer day using the quintessential real life props; beers, skateboards, sunnies. We pulled a few of our favorites and suddenly found we had a badass collection of beauties wearing sunglasses, then we threw in a few more of our favorites for good measure. Jenavieve hails from Southern California and shoots brands such as Raen, RVCA, Port and a few more of our favorites. Enjoy much more of her work here.
I feel like I’ve just watched a series of short films when I look through Evan’s work. The cinematic quality of his photography reminds me of some of my favorite independent or foreign films because of the types of moods he sets. The photos are simple, yet moving, and yes the subjects are beautiful, but it doesn’t feel overly glamorous or forced and instead the moments seem authentic and natural. Evan’s photos make us want to road trip, to play dress-up, to fall in love, to be young. We feel fortunate to be able to feature Evan’s work today, and hope you spend the time to look at more of his work here.
I can’t figure out anything about Timothy Schaumburg. I do know that I like his photos a lot. They make me feel strange and I don’t really get them. He’s like a modern day still life composer, and his photos of objects that don’t seem heroic, suddenly do. I’m also not sure if Timothy doesn’t want people to know much about him because he doesn’t explain much about himself anywhere. Check out his photos and more of his work here.
I came across Alexandra Vacaroiu’s work last week and was immediately enamored. She hales from Romania and is currently studying photography and film at the National University of Arts in Bucharest. When we asked her about her work, she told us, “I’m more interested in recreating scenes from dreams or photographs with a dream-like atmosphere. The aim is to transcend the limit between reality and imagination.”
“Usually, people experiment dreams in an unconscious estate, alone. A dream cannot be dreamed in two or more people. This is a very personal travel, an escape from mundane that can become collective if expressed through art. I am interested in this realm because , since childhood, I had very intense dreams, colorful, and they always left me with a strong sensation of experiencing another reality, even for short term. Dreams are nothing more than manifestations of subconscious, but even bearing this in mind, my fascination continued for years. I have expressed my soft spot for this theme in writings and most of all photography. My series , “ Constellations”, exhibited at National Peasant Museum, in Bucharest, is comprising my theory with a universe within and interconnection, all expressed in a dream-like atmosphere.”
Alexandra’s projects have been selected by United Creativity organization and resulted in an exhibition in Krakow and London, with the aid of Warsaw Cultural Institute. Make sure you visit her site for more breathtaking work.
