Art of Women
Shocking Black and White Face Illustrations Moscow-based photographer Alexander Khokhlov uses the human face as his canvas for creating graphic, black and white illustrations. From the WiFi icon to the skip of a pulse line across his model's eyes, Khokhlov's vision is extraordinarily unique. Rather than relying on canvas, paper, or any other synthetic material as his foundation, Khokhlov relies on the beauty and lines of the feminine face to form this project, entitled Weird Beauty. The well designed face art, combined with simple and elegant female faces, presents viewers with a complex optical illusion of positive and negative space. Our eye is naturally and initially attracted to the strong black and white graphics painted by artist Valeriya Kutsan.
Images of mythical female beauty—goddesses or Eve—vary greatly across cultures and time, as does what qualifies as "beautiful" among everyday women. In this art gallery, you’ll see wide hips and narrow, breasts large and small, athletic shoulders and sloping ones. Feast your eyes on beauty in all shapes and sizes, seen with loving eyes.

Underwater Photography by Elena Kalis It’s summer and we’d like nothing more but to dive underwater as we’ve seen in the lavish underwater photography by Elena Kalis featured below. For her latest shoot, themed on Alice in Wonderland, the artist selected a young female model, dressed up for the part, and equipped with props especially reminiscent of the book and the myriad stories spawned thereafter. Kalis specializes in underwater photography, and the Alice shoot, which was undertaken in what might be the world’s best location—the Bahamas—possibly benefitted from the world’s most skilled photographer in the field at the moment.

The adverts show the results of genuine searches, highlighting popular opinions across the world wide web.”
