Climbing Acatenango – Part 1

If you would've told me I'd be hiking up a volcano over a year ago, I would've laughed in your face. Not just because I'm lazy but also because while sitting behind my desk in the Netherlands, going up a...

Gemma Gonzalez

Catalonian photographer Gemma Gonzalez had our attention since the first time we saw one of her self-portraits, several years ago. We immediately realized that there’s much more to her than a pretty face; her conceptual self-portraits always seem to capture...

Tamara Lichtenstein – Natural Habitat

Everyday we come across stunning photography. That also means we come across cool people who bless us with their work. We're always intrigued with photographers who gives us a little peek into their world. For them it's just plain normal,...

Scott Albrecht – Zero tolerance

Recently we got in touch with artist and designer Scott Albrecht(1983), based in Brooklyn, NY. It turned out his exhibition 'HERE AND NOW' opened in the Andenken / Batallion gallery right in our hometown Amsterdam. Of course, we missed the exhibition, but...

Gerwin Lucas – Off the Wall

Sports and photography have always been a good match! Although overshadowed by its big brother 'the skateboard' in the beginning, the BMX sport took off and became huge. With so much action going on, photographers started capturing images of the...

Mark and his paint guns

"Mark is a Canadian vet who deployed in Iraq. He is showing the paint guns he uses to feel normal. He has been given a discharge from the Canadian Army. He has been arrested by the local police for various...

A ‘Mooiemuur’ Mural in Beirut

Dutch Graffiti artist Roy Valk a.k.a. KARSKI hasn't been properly introduced to yet (even though I have an elaborate interview that needs to be transcribed lying around, any volunteers?) but I couldn't pass up showing you the results of one...

Jeremy Gibbs

UK based photographer Jeremy Gibbs is part of a special breed of people: The tireless. In our first interview in 2009 we've learned he has done all kinds of photography, movie editing and even custom qee making and seems to...

C215 – Wise Words

It must have been a little over a year ago when Chris Guemy, aka C215, drew my attention. It was on the streets of Barcelona where I first laid eyes on his work, and honestly it stopped me dead in...

Unek Francis – Fashion photographer

In 2009 we came across the sexy body art / graffiti on girls pictures created by Unek Francis, aka Mr.Unek. As both his graffiti/ body art work and his photography was stunning we had more than enough reasons for an...

Monokrome Volume 2 – Review

*Sniff*.. Aaaahhh I love the smell of a fresh book, and the book that I have before me might be even fresher than those little pine-trees you hang from your rear-view mirror: Monokrome Volume two – ‘The world’s best graffiti...

Knar Bedian – Armenian Roots

Armenian photographer Knar Bedian took a trip to Nagorno-Karabakh, a once disputed territory in Azerbaijan that has now gained independence. She was able to travel on the Kelbajar route, a road with extremely poor conditions that connects Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh....

MTO in Saratosa, Florida – RUN SRQ

I'm a huge fan of Berlin based graffiti / streetartist MTO. Besides his amazing skills, he always knows how to come up with interesting series of pieces. A little while ago we showed you his wicked 'Berlin Street Fighters' series,...

Inverselive – an ode to polaroid

Inverselive: her photos speak louder than any interview could do because her thoughts are already deeply embedded in the movie-still-like Polaroids. Inverselive shows that the work should be the talking and we couldn't agree more with the photographer from Taipei, Taiwan. The...

Lee Basford – Kushiro

I stumbled across the works of England based photographer (and super multi creative) Lee Basford in our Shuttercrack group on Flickr. With his images shot on the Japanese Island of Hokkaido he tells us the beautiful story of an old...

Fin DAC

Some people catch your eyes quicker than others. I can not recall when I first heard about the in Ireland born Finbarr Notte (aka Finbarr DAC). It was probably via the infamous photo community site called Flickr, where almost every...

Body Language by Dennis Veldman

Dutch photographer Dennis Veldman recently released an amazing series called ‘Body Language’ which is getting quite some airplay in the blog-o-sphere right now and I think the reasons are obvious. In a time where over-lit pictures of models in dirty underwear seem...

Narcélio Grud – Variety on the Rise

If you think street art consists out of nothing more than stencils with a witty punch-line, you should have a look at the works of Brazilian artist Narcélio Grud. His work varies from public sound interventions, sculptures and spray-can spirographs,...

Matteo Bucciol

Inspiring photography is often sparked by thinking about and seeing compositions that other don’t. This is why architecture and photography go together so well; it teaches to see lines, converging points, etc. which work great in photography. A good example...
