The modern world – perhaps the produce section alone – has separated us from the origin stories of the very foods we eat daily. Maciek Jasik‘s The Secret Life of Fruits and Vegetables aims to change that and reconnect us with the mythology, symbolism, and culture behind each through his mystical photography.
Lindsay Bottos is a well of creativity, labeling herself as a photographer, fiber artist, writer, and bookmaker. Her embroidered garments in Girl Work, as well as her embroidered hoops with mementos in I Don’t Really Miss You, really strike a chord.
Alma Haser was born into an artistic family in the Black Forest, Germany and is now based in London. Known for her complex and meticulous portraits, she creates striking work that expands the idea of traditional portrait photography. Alma takes her photographs further with paper-folding techniques, collage, and mixed media to blur the distinction between 2D and 3D imagery.
So much of New York-based photographer Sebastiano Arpaia‘s body of work feels like the end of summer. Dry, crispy grass. Hazy sunsets. Washed out landscapes that let you know the end of the season is so very close.
Being an only child, sibling relationships have always been a point of fascination for me. Sophie Harris-Taylor’s book – Sisters – explores the bonds of more than one hundred sisters who she’s spotlighted through photographs and interviews that reveal the heart of each relationship.
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.

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.
Montana-born, New York-based photographer Suzanne Saroff uses everyday foods and botanicals combined with different tools and techniques to create depth, perception, and expression. Who would’ve guessed that a simple grouping of glassware filled with water could create such a dynamic result?
Lifestyle and commercial photographer Camila Gutiérrez‘s stills are flat-out dreamy. The muted pastel tones she seems to favor either lean towards golden hour vibes or a rainy day mood, two of my personal favorites. Don’t you just want to jump into one of her photos and explore?
