In the first set, a beautiful brunette sheds her old body similar to that of a snake. A dramatic, internal struggle takes place in the second series, while the third features beautiful women hatching from their shells. Taylor James really pushes the technical limits of photo manipulation, turning amazingly creative ideas into a reality. Not only do these sets tell incredible stories, they're executing in a way that's nothing short of phenomenal.

Tape, Pencil and Resin: The Art of Brooks Salzwedel

It’s nice to see work that brings in different non-digital materials to what we’re used to. Using a combination of Staedler Graphite pencils ranging from 6H to 9B, tape and ‘Awful toxic resin‘, Brooks creates images that look like relics of nature and other objects frozen in time. I also love the gloomy and almost real effect that’s created by having elements between semi-transparent layers.
