Deep in the jungle of Vietnam, inside the world’s largest cave is a mystical world with its own ecosystem, climate, and even clouds. Photographer Nicole Chan was lucky enough to go exploring there, and the images she brought back are stunning.

Photographer Inti St. Clair And Her Friends Head to Cartagena

Even though the trip was planned as a birthday celebration for herself and a friend, photographer Inti St. Clair wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to capture some great imagery. With the colorful street art as a backdrop and themes like “Tropical Fruity Fantasy”,  “Jungle Safari”, and “Overboard Yacht Glamour”, they had all they needed to create some great over-the-top imagery. Needless to say, the group was hard to miss as they island hopped, danced at the Cafe Havana, or explored the ancient walled city of Cartegena.

 

Tom Cocotos And The Fine Art Of Collage

Cocotos1

Tom Cocotos began communicating visually before he could speak, and his primary method even then was collage, an art form that is both simple and sophisticated. Collage is like a visual record of all the creative decisions this artist makes along the way as he deconstructs and reconstructs his imagery. The tools are relatively simple: paper, magazines, pencil, and glue stick, but they nonetheless allow this artist to create  imagery that is sometimes a funny narrative, a probing portrait, or something powerfully iconic. Tom always seems to be working, whether it’s on the subway or in his studio here in New York. Commissioned work has also taken him all over the world, from Buenos Aires to Moscow, and this past year, he held artist residencies in Berlin, Buenos Aires, and Miami, with one-person exhibitions in all three cities.
