We need some time off to write up some top-notch articles and finish building a smooth-looking website, for you fabulous people. So while you wait, here’s our sponge mark. Updates and sporadic visual art posts will be on our Facebook Page.

Davey has a fantastic eye for composition. I love how he beautifully combines shapes and patterns from his immediate surroundings, and the pictures with women are just so delicate.

Cody’s landscape pictures are incredibly transporting. They seem to be taken in the most remote of places. I love how he composes pictures in a way that lets us wonder how vast and infinite the world is. Also, square format landscape photography isn’t something I see everyday, and even less with such diversity in terrain.

“In Between Passengers” is a project by Damien Rayuela involving portraits of people sitting in the bus, taken through the window reflections. Damien places special emphasis on the fact that these people were taken at a moment that we all find ourselves in, at some point in the day. It’s the trip back from work or school. That time of day when we disconnect and let the world hurry by as the bus brings us home. Using the window reflection is a great way to capture the facial expressions of people going through this part of their day. Damien beautifully merges the colors and tones from outside into each portrait.

Hildur has also collaborated with Saga Sig previously featured here.

Ekaterina’s work is completely mesmerizing. She mostly shoots in black and white, and this adds to the beautiful intensity of her portraiture. I would happily live in a monochrome world if Ekaterina was its creator.
Photography isn’t the only thing Ekaterina is excellent at, she also illustrates, draws and paints (and yes, she’s excellent at all of these too). Check her website.

There’s such an intense vibrancy of colors and patterns in Bobby’s work. He seems to know exactly how to compose a picture so the subject is completely isolated from its surroundings, either through the contrasting shapes and lines or by the sheer intensity of the tones.
