Through the Lens
This Week in Photography
Los Angeles based photographer Evan Lane is creating ephemeral, deftly captured memories in a single frame. His work seems to bring out a mysterious air within the subjects while showcasing organic and honest moments. These candid and seemingly effortless images tickle the imagination and draw us in.
Toile De Jouy
These creative artists definitely incorporate some cheeky fun as they point their talents at this age-old fabric print imagery. This trend is based on the French originated technique of decorating fine linens with a repeating pattern featuring major events of the day. And let me say, these artists really do take 18th-century decor and make it current.
Introducing the current face of crisp inspiration: pastel mint. This cool shade of green is renowned for its fresh and vibrant properties as well as its versatility, as it can function as both an accent and a feature color.
WeSCREAM | New York, New York
These new digital works from WesCREAM are a visual thrill to take in. Each object and scene is full of bright, lively color, and the shapes invite our imaginations to roam freely.
