Swedish photographers Marco Grizelj and Kristian Kran bleed talent through their collective name, Aorta. As editorial photographers (name name name name) the pair really knows how to carve out a distinct space around an object of beauty, giving the woman or thing in focus a serene absolution from its surroundings.
So maybe you’re not a professional photographer, however if you share the same love for capturing moments with a camera but lack the skills to find the right angle, then this camera might be just for you.

The image above was taken from the Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass’s 1964 classic film ”Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”. You may have heard it before. The doe ( female deer) with the long lashes and pretty bow is actually named Clarice and is not Vixen at all, as the title of this particular blog suggests, but thats really besides the point. While this classic which was inspired by the poem “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” and the coloring book “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, has a good message and a happy ending, it is the song that is sung, which has no relation in particular to the movie, that I have issue with.

Soon they had their own series, premiering on FOX as a half-hour Christmas special on Dec. 17, 1989 (20 years ago today), and then as a regular series on Jan. 14, 1990.” [ Continue Reading ]
Ronald Kurniawan graduated with honors from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena California, he currently resides in Los Angeles. Inspired by ideograms, syllables, letterforms, beasts, and heroic landscapes, he creates imagery in which the wilderness and civilization merge. A place where the sublime can coexist with the nuclear age. This juxtaposition of imagery also lends itself to Kurniawan’s creative process, where he uses the simple to express the complex and vice-versa. [ Continue Reading ]
Moleskine, makers of the notebook preferred by writers (and posers like me) everywhere, held a group exhibition entitled “Detour.” An artist named Nendo created the notebook above, which stands out from much of the rest of the crowd because it’s not simply a drawing. I included a couple of other examples in the gallery below so that you can judge for yourself. [ Continue Reading ]
