jackson 300x400 OFF THE WALL:  Richard Jackson

A mere glimpse into the world of California contemporary artist,  Richard Jackson was all it took to command my attention, and at times, to render me utterly speechless.   This man has certainly not allowed himself to be pinned  down to one design aesthetic; but instead has  immersed himself in a world of projects which are at times fraught with disturbing images or humor or are just plain over the top size-wise, or all three.

Steven Lippman is a photographer, surfer and skateboarder hailing from California. His editorial works are full of movement and life. They tell stories without feeling like the models are overly posed and contrived. The pictures feel…clean, not because they aren’t provocative but because there’s this beautiful minimalism about the use of so much black and white and uncluttered background. In short, the portraits are engaging as hell and the editorials are gorgeous while the lifestyle and advertising shots sell me instantly. [ Continue Reading ]
