Nichole Yanota’s Brilliant Natural World

Raised in the foothills of the Sonoran Desert, Nichole Yanota was greatly influenced by the brilliance of her natural world; the blossoming cactus a perfect coexistence of the fragile and the fierce.

Aves Artiste: Anne-Julie Aubry

Crows and blackbirds appear often in her paintings, inspired by her personal environment, childhood, and dreams. She is a distant dreamer, a sleepwalker on the lookout, a traveller from the shadows who loves labyrinths and unanswered enigmas, fairy tales and girls with white socks. At night, her heroines...

Obscured by Light – Remains of Winter

"The Remains of Winter" by Polish photographer Obscured By Light documents local corvids killed by the cold weather, hunger or thirst, during one of the most bitter winters in the last twenty years. The birds were everywhere, and among the chilling landscape of frozen playgrounds. This post explores the shadows of our winter past, so that we may shed them in favor of the spring...
