Megan Leonard

Megan Leonard has a nice variety of photographs on her Flickr page but I keep going back to these images of the above model. At first I thought that this was Megan herself but looks like it’s not. Perhaps it’s Megan’s BFF, a favorite model, or even a muse. Either way I was drawn to the blank expression in all the shots.

Tova Mozard’s works elicit the uncanny feeling of cinematic conflation and collapse. They’re like stills straight out of dreams you can’t remember, surrealist, hallucinatory, at times slightly comedic in their implausability. They all, somehow, seem to deal with mortality, what lays behind the curtain, absence, death, the supernatural…there is a haunting Lynch-ian tendency that I like too. In particular I love her photo after the jump of Pappy and Harriet’s restaurant, in Joshua Tree…a cheery bbq joint with country bands I have been to many a time…though I almost didn’t recognize it as Mozard makes it look like an ominous place from a horror movie. Many look like lost out-takes from Twin Peaks (she did name her solo exhibition after the Giant’s message  to Agent Cooper….”the owls are not what they seem.”) I also like her ’cause she’s Swedish. Unsettling and seductive.

There’s all sort of crazy images popping up on the Beautiful/Decay Flickr Pool these days. These photo’s come courtesy of D▲NIEL, a graphic design student from Costa Rica. This is proof of the mystical powers of Beautiful/Decay Book 1. Just look at the coincidences between our cover and these photos. Skulls… check. Candles… check. Mystical crystals…check.
