  • Tales of a City II

    Photographer: Seigar ( Instagram / Facebook )     Tales of a City II is an urban series made of individual tales from London, 2017.  Each image captures a photo-narrative. It is a set of street photography. Most of them are spontaneous instants. They are linked because of the saturated colors, details and free compositions, far from rules. It is a continuation of a group of photos taken in 2014. This year, I went back to my favorite city and I realized I have captured the same motifs and elements that I took in the previous trip. In these tales, you find reflections, shop windows, plastic people, messages, words, abandoned objects, lines, geometry, shadows, lights, food and people. This is London for me. The old city becomes young in my tales; this is how I look…

  • THRIVE: Why Does Spring Make Me Feel Trapped?

      Welcome to Thrive! A weekly advice column for creatives and the generally confused.   Have you felt it? The soul-sucking energy of March? It’s here. I don’t know why I needed Timehop to remind me that I feel the same way every year, every March. I am tired, I am defeated, I am feeling trapped, I need change! The past couple of weeks I have been feeling all of this and at first I always think it’s me, that something is wrong with me, and that just makes everything worse. But then I remember, usually too late, that the end of winter and the beginning of spring is always…

  • La Luz’s SXSW Instagram Takeover

    Photo Credit: Vikesh Kapoor   Currently based in Los Angeles’ duality of sunny dispositions and dark illusions, La Luz has crafted something special since their inception in 2012. Comprised of singer/guitarist Shana Cleveland, drummer Marian Li Pino, keyboardist Alice Sandahl, and bassist Lena Simon, the band’s surf-rock infested and reverb-drenched melodies maintain a haunting infectiousness while conjuring visions of hallucinatory desert landscapes. Citing inspiration from early teenage garage groups, La Luz’s journey from their first full length off Hardly Art, It’s Alive, through to their upcoming album, Floating Features (coming out on May 11th), has traversed textured terrain, soaking up a variety of genres and exuding complexity while still staying…

  • Bathers

      Based in Spain, photographer David Rodríguez has always been attracted to the art world with his love of photography starting in 2013. He bought his first reflex camera and began his training through courses and self-teaching.  His fascination lies in photographing people with risky compositions and an element of surrealism. He remains inspired by works from Man Ray, Erwin Blumenfeld and Guy Bourdin. Rodríguez prefers creating imaginary concepts and stories not grounded in reality, allowing him to transform his surroundings and challenge the model with unusual situations. The use of his photography techniques, whether high speed, long exposure or something else, is determined by the conceptual preconception he has…

  • Welcome To Our Hearts Haze County

    Welcome To Our Hearts Haze County by Jay Armstrong I am in love with Haze County. These first songs are a selfish organic release of compounded layered expression yet speak to the ALL our individual spirits gravitate towards. Haze County breathes through frantic frenzied technique blurred beneath a rare sensitivity towards the bigger cohesive whole. Certainly this is yet another band on the path of Bryan Leslie Roberts creativity yet the stand alone, above, beyond, nature of this project’s first few songs overshadow all which he had his hands in before. What is the point in reflecting on each band and step leading Roberts here when such reflection would take…

  • Thrive: What Self Care for Artists Looks Like

    Welcome to Thrive! A weekly advice column for creatives and the generally confused.   Self care has been a buzzword for a while now– it’s everywhere! What I’ve found is that while self care should be defined by each individual, it helps to get some tips and tricks to get you started. Sadly I found that there weren’t a whole lot of articles giving out these tips and tricks to artists and creatives. A lot of self care tips suggest doing what we do every day, sometimes all day. How do you develop your own self care when your projects and passions (painting, writing, singing etc.) serve as options for others to de-stress?…
