Hello you! How’s it going? Wowee, that week went flying didn’t it? It kinda seems crazy that last night I was shaking my booty on the east coast and now I’m about to press the publish button back on the west coast. Gah! Kinda makes me dizzy.
So to ease back into things, today I’m gonna share with you the work of French artist Fanette G. who – despite being a young duckling and recent graduate of art school – is already creating outstanding work. The one you see on this post – titled Géometrie de l’impossible – is a mix of photography and art installation. Yup, that’s right, no photoshop involved!
These optical illusions were painted on abandoned buildings and later photographed from different angles to trick your eye into thinking those are 3D object floating in the room. So good! Similar to the creations of Aakash Nihalani but with a different, more modern-art-meets-vintage-interiors approach.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if you painted something like that at home?
Ok this post is a weee kinda late (was supposed to go up earlier this week with a bunch of other things, but ya know, couldn’t squeeze more hours out of the day to make it happen)…so…Wow. I’m literally speechless. Which almost never happens. These photos by food photographer Lena Emery are pieces of art. I actually thought they were paintings!
Love the styling and colours, so simple and beautiful! This truly is a great example of “less is more”. I could continue to ramble about how awesome her work is, but I’ll let you discover it by yourself. Just hop over to Lena’s site to see more. Also, I have slept for 1 hour and tomorrow I am going to speak at Blog Podium! So nervous and excited at the same time!
Swooning over these images taken by New York based photographer Adam Kremer. The styling, the colours, the harsh lighting – everything’s just screaming I’m awesome! Love how he uses super simple props for his photos, I mean construction paper, black ink, and chopped fruit aren’t the fanciest props, but when Adam Kremer uses his lens they totally become stylish.
This type of photography is definitely taking off and becoming a trend; you can spot these harsh lighting, washed out colours, and deep shadows in publications like Gather Journal and Dash magazine. Hopefully we’ll see more of this!
Also, I’m not gonna lie, I am so gonna try to use this style for a food post, hopefully it ends up looking half decent!

Oh man. Can you feel it? This is going to be a good feature.
Introducing the photography of Angelica Garcia, a Venezuelan artist that is kinda blowing my mind right now. Ok and get this – her work is NOT manipulated digitally, oh no sir, it’s all hand made. Yup. First, Angelica takes a picture of the subject, she prints it, does her magic with her own very talented hands, and then takes a photo of the final product. Quite the process!
Her style is in line with lots of trending photographers that are using creamy tones on their images, mixed with pops of saturated colour, similar to what you can do on a smaller scale with the VSCO Cam. Obviously, Angelica’s work takes the cake since it’s all hand made.
As Angelica explores the concept of emptiness, she creates these dreamy images – love how they seem to look more like paintings than photos; oh so visually poetic.
You can see more of Angelica’s work over at her See.Me page.
Ok. Breathe. I know, this is the coolest shit ever but, let’s take it slowly, mmkay?
While browsing through my phone’s warp hole, also known as Instagram, I found this amazing Pantone Project by Chicago-based photographer Paul Octavious. I’m amazed at the things people can do with their phones. Seriously. Did you ever think this would exist when you were in high-school?
Are you jumping into the colorful wagon with Paul Octavious? I think we should. This project basically sends you on a scavenger hunt, armed with nothing but your camera phone, and a few Pantone swatches. I think we are guaranteed to have a blast, PLUS, this is a great exercise to train your eye to find colour inspiration where you least expect it.
So, shall we Pantone the city together?
Ps. the official tag for this project is #ThePantoneProject. Oh, are we IG friends yet?
