In ‘Material’ (2012), Issa’s sculptural works explore the presence and function of ten historic public monuments, all known to the…

Tara Donovan’s Bulbous, Undulating Works Consider The Beauty In Everyday Objects – Fine Art Photography Article

Tara Donovan’s Bulbous, Undulating Works Consider The Beauty In Everyday Objects Massive in scale, Donovan’s sculptural compositions explore themes of accumulation and aggregation. By making use of mass-produced goods that are ubiquitous in society but often overlooked, Donovan’s works force the viewer to reconsider their actions and habits in a world fuelled by consumption.

Spinning Around NY | iPhone Photographer – iPhone Photography Article

You and I are on a special journey together, uncontrollably spinning our way through the universe. We have no idea where we’re going, when we’ll get there, or why we’re going at all. At least, we have each other on this journey, if nothing else. When I forget that, I can feel alone and overwhelmed. Untethered, I drift between stability and chaos. Bouncing aimlessly between the two. Then, you grab me and hold tight. Until I return to solid ground.…

Zatista.com, the premier source for original art online No More Sunsets: Avoiding Clichéd Travel Photography Some of my favorite travel photography was created decades ago when the world still seemed a mystery and far away places were truly exotic.
