Through the Lens

This Week in Photography

Though she’s brand new to the Society6 community, Elizabeth Jacqueline brings a lot to the table from her Savannah, Georgia location. Her photos appear almost as a blend of short stories, suggesting hints of different narratives within each frame. It’s evident that Elizabeth has a trained eye and a solid grasp on craft.

Hazy Days

The atmospheric mood is so tangible in these dreamy scenes. Each moment feels equally distant and yet still palpable. A sense of nostalgia kicks in for me when an artist captures that sentimental, misty vibe.

Artist Spotlight

Madeline Allene | Webster Groves, Missouri

Madeline Allene seems to have a knack for brilliantly and naturally blending the areas of graphic design and illustration. Her work balances color blocked shapes and some other undefinable spark, which I can only describe as the joy of harmonious creativity incarnate.

About the Curator

Hello there art friends. My name is Nathan Spoor, Head of Curation at Society6. I have over 25 years of experience as an art curator for galleries and museums, I’ve written for several prominent art publications and published three books on contemporary art. I’m also a painter and a member of one of the first groups of artists that took the plunge and joined Society6 in 2009. Since 2015, I’ve been the full-time Society6 curator, continuously thrilled to be on the forefront of surfacing so much amazing work, sharing rising artists, trending themes and color stories that spark inspiration and fuel the imagination.

Each day I dive into a sea of new art uploads on Society6, surrounded by a virtual treasure trove of artists from around the world sharing their original works paintings, photographs, illustrations and designs.
