Test Shot with Nikki Howard by Van Styles

van1

It is good to know you have friends looking out for you in life. My case in point is the time Young Corey put me up on a model by the name of Nikki Howard. We had reached out via text to each other after getting linked up by Corey, and both agreed it would be awesome to shoot together. Unfortunately, like most things in my life, scheduling put it off for a bit. I was fortunate enough to reconnect with the brunette beauty and we finally set up a day for a Test Shoot. Since I have a new studio, I thought it would be great to have her come by and see what we could produce. Now if you are already a fan of her work, then you probably might guess we got some pretty good stuff. – Photographer Van Styles

Burning_moments_by_Ari_Fararooy_2015_01

Last year I attended my first Burning Man festival and had the most insane time of my life. I have never been surrounded by so much creativity and enthusiasm, and as a photographer/videographer I was highly inspired to capture the festival from my own unique perspective. Burning Man truly is a one-of-a-kind festival and I really hope to return this year. – Ari Fararooy

The_Last_Book_Photographer_Docmuments_What_People_Are_Reading_on_the_NYC_Subway_2015_01

When Dutch photographer Reinier Gerritsen turned his lens to people reading on the New York City subway system, he launched a project that proves the power of the printed word is alive and well in the midst of public transportation. Gerritsen spent three years collecting the photos for “The Last Book” project, which was exhibited at New York City’s Julie Saul Gallery and turned into a book. With the precision of a librarian, Gerritsen cataloged the 500 photos on his website by author’s last name. Suzanne Collins, James Patterson and J.K. Rowling were among authors who appeared the most on the subway.

“Into The Woods” feat. Tianna Gregory by Photographer Martin Murillo

Into_The_Woods_feat_Tianna_Gregory_by_Photographer_Martin_Murillo_2015_01

A couple months ago, Model Tianna Gregory and I were talking about shooting in Lake Tahoe and having her take me around where she grew up, seeing that it was her hometown. We kinda improvised with wardrobe having her just wear her favorite Jordans, some jeans, one of her old jackets from her days in high school and one of my beanies, but it turned out awesome. It was probably about 30 degrees out during this shoot so Tianna was a trooper. – Photographer Martin Murillo

A Toddler’s View of New York City

A_Toddlers_View_of_New_York_City_2015_01

You can only see so many postcard-esque shots of Times Square and Rockefeller Center before it feels like you have a good idea about what it’s like to be there. But what do these iconic locations look like from a baby’s perspective? With a Go-Pro behind his son’s back as he strolled through New York City, Ecuadorian photographer Diego Acosta López captured New York from an angle that many have experienced, but few can actually remember. The pictures document little Ignacio’s first trip to NYC to visit his daddy, who is studying at SVA (School of Visual Arts).

Famous_People_Lettering_by_Swedish_Illustrator_Patrik_Svensson_2015_01

Swedish illustrator Patrik Svensson has recently produced a series of clever illustrations featuring the names of famous people, subtly inserted with iconic items and trademarks that reflect their distinctive characters. For instance, the letter “S” is replaced with the silhouette image of a smoking-pipe that Sherlock Holmes uses to feed his compulsive smoking habits, while the letter “G” is shaped like an ear that Vincent van Gogh had sliced off.

He invented the concept of Street Art 2.0 with his project, named “Paintings with lights”, and kicked-off in his home city of Marseille in March, 2014. 2 weeks later and his project created the buzz in 44 countries. Philippe’s street art is not leaving any prints on locations he uses to exhibit his art, playing with his favorite tool: light. The beauty of his art is therefore ephemeral.
