Franck Bohbot / Angels

 

French-born, New York-dwelling Franck Bohbot‘s photos all have a touch of the theatrical about them. His past work on film sets lends the formal and aesthetic influences of cinematography to his work, as well as a documentarian feel. The way Bohbot views L.A. in his Angels series isn’t necessarily the way billions of minds across the world imagine the city, but if you’ve ever visited and stepped outside of Hollywood you know it’s the truth.

“Almost everyone has some idea of what Los Angeles is, even if they’ve never been there. Home to Hollywood, the city churns out myth after American myth. Some see the city as a necessary part of a glamorous life — they migrate there to become stars. Others live ordinary lives and work ordinary jobs in this city of spectacle. Here, even the metallic glinting pole of exercise equipment along the shoreline, or a solitary streetlight in neon darkness, or a thrust of power lines cutting across the sky, captures something essential about the so-called “city of angels.” by Sarah V. Schweig

Cards for Perspective

 

Who doesn’t need a little bit of perspective now and again? Cards for Perspective is a collection of twenty cards featuring fresh views on life to help you restore calm and clarity.

We mistake what is manageable for a catastrophe; we despair of ourselves too soon; we alienate others by over-reacting; we don’t notice and appreciate what there is still to be grateful for; we forget we’re going to die and that a lot of today’s headache will soon be forgotten. These cards provide eloquent invitations to recover a wiser, calmer, redemptive perspective on our lives.

Kristen Meyer

 

When my mind feels jumbled up I like to search out things that are all sorted out, that’s how I came upon the work of Kristen Meyer. Her background runs the gamut from floral design to interior decorating to window design and prop styling, and she puts them all to use when creating these organized geometric flat lays out of themed groupings.

Lisa Courtney

 

Massachusetts-based painter Lisa Courtney considers herself an abstract expressionist, meaning her interpretations include things that are recognizable, placing her style somewhere between realism and abstractionism. The colorfully serene scenes she captures are directly from her surroundings – seaside cottages, sunsets, and more.

Nicholas Rougeux

 

Chicago-based self-taught web developer and artist Nicholas Rougeux did something rather remarkable, he took the scores of classical composers and turned them into wonderfully colorful fractal images. In fact, he created the entire process and you can see the visuals take shape as each piece is played here.

Each dot represents a note in the score. Pitch is indicated by the distance from the center of the image, while the time at which the note occurs is given by the angle from the 12 o’clock position. The size of the dot indicates the duration of the note, and the color of the dot is different for each instrument.

Emma-Leone Palmer / Paint Play Series

 

Emma-Leone Palmer paints faces, but what she strives to capture are the deep wells of feeling and emotion that run beneath the surface of their expressions. Her latest work, the Paint Play series, uses paint, lube, glitter, and water, the mediums smeared, dripped, flicked, and splashed onto the subject’s face to trigger reactions and emotions. It’s not premeditated, rather hundreds of photos are taken and the paintings made as a result.
