I’ve been a fan of Stefan Ruiz’s work for a while, I collected most of the issues of COLORS magazine he worked on several years ago. He documents people, places, and objects from around the world that are both strange and familiar. I especially love his portraits; he conveys so much personality and narrative in such concise elegant images.
Paintings by German/Dutch artist Francien Krieg. Her figures are at once delicately ethereal and grotesquely real.
Leif Huron incredibly captures his subjects in awesome vibrancy and beautiful tonality. Huron’s photographs are incredibly detailed and are a treat to the eyes; especially the portrait series. Done in high key, the color contrast of white skin and background to rich colored hair and strikingly deep colored eyes makes for one hell of an image.

Canadian artist Wilford Barrington creates portraits – portraits that will have you appear cracked and fractured & probably far more interesting that what any mirror has to offer.
