Mark King creates photographs that document every day life in his hometown of Barbados. What I am particularly drawn to within the works is their overarching sense of point-and-shoot honesty, as well as their glossy/gritty vibe that could almost be high fashion editorial Vice essay- its sort of like a candid, William Eggleston approach meets Terry Richardson. Mark’s work seems to capture the culture around him and highlight them in new, surreal and fascinating ways. Discoered on the Beautiful/Decay Creative Pic Pool- be sure to upload your work there today and it may just end up on the B/D blog!
Earlier last week, 1.5 million people filled the streets of Berlin, Germany to watch a several-day performance by France’s Royal de Luxe street theatre company titled “The Berlin Reunion”. Part of the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Reunion show featured two massive marionettes, the Big Giant, a deep-sea diver, and his niece, the Little Giantess. The storyline of the performance has the two separated by a wall, thrown up by “land and sea monsters”. The Big Giant has just returned from a long and difficult – but successful – expedition to destroy the wall, and now the two are walking the streets of Berlin, seeking each other after many years apart. Go take a look at the pictures on boston.com in all their large-sized glory. There were so many amazing ones I didn’t know which ones to post!

Luca Mainini is an italian visual artist and writer who is not afraid to share his thoughts. Whether it is a bloody love for Zac Efron or lipstick crashing into the World Trade Centers, Luca is willing to push it, and I love it. This guy likes to get wild. I mainly enjoy his paparazzi project were he is shown as a “drunk and fat” mess. Plus his collage work is fun too.
Ward Roberts was born in Australia and currently lives in Hong Kong and Australia. His work of quiet images depicting various lonesome landscapes are impressive. His contemporary eye has caught active locations and made them obsolete. Pretty neat.
