A South African Family Album

Alexia Webster, born in Johannesburg, travels throughout the continent documenting both personal and commissioned stories as a freelance photographer. she has an extensive and beautiful portfolio – be sure to look at this emotional farewell to Mandela and this amazing series of Ghanaian modernist architecture. but it’s her Street Portraits series that…

Ian Grose

Ian Grose is an artist who lives in Cape Town whose focus is painting. he has a tumblr called Small Paintings that are, well, small paintings. and extraordinary ones at that. i simply love his portraiture, but also enjoy the tiny (often quite abstract) landscapes. if you live in Cape…

Ari Gabel

it felt like just the other day that i posted about Ari Gabel’s arresting self portraits – but that was more than two years ago now! i had a long browse through his website and flickr recently, and i am very taken by the new projects he’s working on and his…

Alan Reid

Alan Reid is an artist based in NYC who works with colour pencils. reading up about him i discovered, his representational images of heiresses, bored fashionistas and aquiline beauties that have been called provocatively light, with coloring as delicate as his women are elegant.

Thirteen Georgian girls aging 17 to 23 had…

michael wells is a photographer whose portfolio spans from interiors to portraiture to landscapes to cityscapes to other interesting work like the border projects… i got lost in it for quite a while, i tell you. i am particularly drawn to his interior shots that are so richly hued, and…

rainy day special

a series i love so much i actually have to hold myself back from making more. trying to keep these relatively few and far between because i know that if i didn’t they would become boring. it would be like eating pancakes every day. where’s the fun in that? pancakes…

john kelso

i clicked through to john kelso’s website after following his work on flickr for a while, and he opens with: my name is john kelso. i like to take pictures and play with my dog (copernicus) copernicus! if that doesn’t spark INSTANT LIKABILITY … then his photographs surely will.
