  • Photography: Sparkling Boy by Irina Bunyatyan

    Photographer: Irina Bunyatyan ( Instagram ) Model: Nick Frank ( Instagram ) Make Up and Hair: Elena Malysheva ( Instagram )   I’m mad about photography and all we call ”art”. I adore shooting, meeting talented people and create something intriguing together with them. Sometimes each of us needs to let our inner self out and express our secret emotions. “Sparkling Boy” bewitches us not only with his glowing face, but he shows us his inner beauty as well. — Irina Bunyatyan            

  • Artists On Our Radar: Rebecca Chitticks

    Artist: Rebecca Chitticks ( Instagram )   I’m a contemporary figurative artist working in oil on canvas. I find my work to be informed by the creeping influence of the digital realm. This sphere that we participate in casually within our day to day life seeps into our unconscious and I feel this influences my artistic practise. Whilst browsing through feeds and skimming streams of data I am constantly soaking up ideas and finding relationships, imagined narratives between disparate threads of information, fragments of pictures, colours and these are used as my references. Oil paint acts as a conduit through which I am able to convey the fleetingness and allure of beauty. I hope to incite emotion through my choice of imagery…

  • Summer Rain

    Photographer: Alina Autumn ( Instagram ) Alina Autumn is a creative photographer based in Russia. She thrives on creating tragic, sensual and feminine images, with the intention of leaving the viewer with a small story. She is inspired by the natural beauty of people, nature, cinema, lighting, color, and all things vintage. Her most recent series was born by chance — together with model Anna, the two were struck by the beauty of blossoming trees after a heavy rainfall. Wet her, raindrops, and the muffled colors influenced what was to become “Summer Rain”.

  • Intimacy and Distance: Photography by Ophelie Rondeau

    Ophelie Rondeau is a French self-taught film photographer from Paris, currently living and working in London. Six months ago she started shooting girls on film as a way to capture her perception of friendship, love, and natural beauty in girls she meets, based on the concept of repetition. She finds beauty in every individual and succeeds in capturing girls of different colors, shapes, and origins in her photography. Her focus on relationships and friendships originates from how the internet has affected human contact, depicting human connections as either present or absent. Her inspiration comes primarily from her own life and memories, and by the every day things she sees, hears,…

  • If I Wasn’t Black I Wouldn’t Be Writing This

      At certain points throughout the day, I find myself looking at all these beautifully unique, intricate masterpieces. All of them look different from one another, but belong to one another in this way I can’t help but to announce to myself. Everyone is white, here… Mostly pale white. I’m this deep red brown from the sand of some sea I can’t pronounce or seem to remember. I’m here. Aren’t I here? Where are the ones that look like me. Sure there are little pockets of us occupying the street. But not many of us. If you understand where I am going, please buy a ticket. An artist is an…

  • Maybe You Are

    I’ve got this feeling we don’t ever truly get to finish what we create – artwork, songs, books, anything we put our soul in – like they’re just fragments of something else, universal and eternal. So I was wondering, what could be the true, whole artwork? Well, maybe you are, you without boundaries and conclusions, you messing around with life, you beautiful disaster, you who doesn’t know what you’re doing all the time but still create beautiful, irreplaceable things.   I shot this series to celebrate myself, to remind myself not to always take myself for granted, to look at myself with brand new eyes.   Hope it’ll inspire someone…

  • Disposed: Big Bend

    After a long winter of dirty snow and crowded trains, I was determined to spend some quality time with nature this summer. So I took some time off of work, packed up my car and boyfriend, and set out for West Texas to cross “Hike Big Bend” off of my bucket list. I’ve always thought of myself as a natural city dweller, but after this trip I can’t stop daydreaming about just how satisfying it would be to spend a year (or a lifetime) soaking in the beauty and mystery of the desert. Needless to say, it was quite an adventure. These pictures were taken in Big Bend National Park,…

  • Making Your Skin Friends With Finals Season

    Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, health care professional, or dermatologist. However, I have been fighting crime and breakouts since puberty! It’s that time of year again – Finals. Other than an insane amount of studying (I have to make a WHAT on my final to get an A!?!?), the one thing I know I can always count on is breaking out. The stress and destroyed routine, season change; oh alright, and a bowing down to bad habits during that last week of classes (ahhh!), and dead week (ughhh!), and finally finals (^&#$%^hh!) always gets to my skin. Now that I’m finally an upperclasswoman, I thought I’d compile a list of…

  • The Lipstick Guide

    For some reason, the first 6 years of wearing makeup, I was scared of lipstick. There was just something about it. I put it on and thought I looked like a hooker, or a trout, or someone who just got collagen injections. I hated it. Then about a year ago I put my big girl pants on, bought a tube, and tried it out. I FELL IN LOVE. It is so freaking awesome! I mean honestly, lipstick is one of the best make up products you can use- it completes your look, and it’s so fun! In the winter, I mostly stick to the classic red lip. Be careful of…
