“Roman Sakovich is the London-based photographer who conceived, produced, and shot the series ‘Half’ while still a photography student at the Arts University College in Bournemouth. Roman wanted to show the devastating effects of drug abuse and provide a vivid contrast with a clean-cut version of the same person. He had the right side of his models dressed in corporate attire, and the left side dressed as a junkie in dire need of a fix. The difference is startling, to say the least. Kudos to his make-up artist for making the bruises, bags, wrinkles, and needle marks look realistic. His other portraits, while not as dramatic as ‘Half’ are just as thought-provoking.” - via Pondly.com

“Pop Pop Bang Bang is a collaboration between photographer Thomas Brown and creative director Anna Burns. Thomas describes it as a mix of ’film, photography, and pyro.’ Explosions, guns, and girls are all recurring themes on the silver screen. The installation itself is a collage of artfully arranged umbrellas set in three different locations in London.”

I absolutely love Dale Chihuly. His work is amazing and displayed all over the world. I saw this piece of his in London at the Victoria and Albert museum. Beautiful!
"Film Star" by John Latham 1960
Books, plaster and metal on canvas
"This work was titled ‘Film Star’ because it appeared in Latham’s film ‘Unedited Material from the Star.’ It incorporates books whose pages have been painted in twelve colours. Because the books can be opened at different pages, the work can exist in different states. The film consists of static shots of opened books. During production, Latham would stop filming at various points, turn the pages of the books, and start filming again. When the film is shown, the books appear suddenly to open, close and change colour."
Photos by me, taken in London at the Tate Modern. Caption is what was posted next to the piece.
Truly amazing. Googling this piece showed me the different colors the piece can also show.
Painter Tom French just posted a number of new paintings in preparation for his upcoming exhibition titled Don’t Look Back at Zero Cool Gallery in London later this month. French’s acrylic works often depict couples in seemingly amorous relationships that create the optical illusion of a skull, pieces that walk the line between beautiful and unsettling. Just squint or take a few steps back from your monitor for maximum effect. You can see much more of his work on Flickr, and prints are available at Zero Cool. (by Christopher )
