Through the Lens
This Week in Photography
One aspect of JadeApple’s photography that stands out is her special ability to capture the mood in and around Seaford, United Kingdom. In every setting, Jade’s photos touch upon something specific, personal and meaningful.
Blending colors and design elements from the 80s, Vaporwave is a nostalgic, graphic trend that really captures the era’s 3D pop elements and glitch vibes.
You know the shade instantly—it belongs to that distinct, slightly odd looking creature of uncommon beauty: the pink flamingo. (Fun fact, these elegant birds get their vibrant colors from consuming brine shrimp and algae found in their wetlands.)
Ruth Hardy | Houston, Texas
Recent recommendations brought this incredibly talented young Black artist to light. Check out Ruth Hardy Art, a 17-year-old painter from my old hometown of Houston, Texas. She’s super gifted and at the start of her very promising career. She’s definitely an artist to follow!
