Dark Erotic Women Portraits By Ellen Rogers

Norfolk-based analog photographer Ellen Rogers captures vaporous, retro-vintage feminine portraits. Her world combines an oneiric and macabre atmosphere, revealing multiple cultural influences, where women are raised to the rank of muses and mysterious witches. All of her work is analogue, meaning the lady flat out rejects digital in favour of less technically sharp processes. These include shooting inside the dark room and hand-tinting, all to get that Pre-Raphealite thing down pat. Rogers claims that while her technique « is a secret, » it’s « all darkroom based and it isn’t set. It can be a mixture of alternative processes to straight silver gelatine.

My technique is experimentation. » Toying with dark and mysterious iconography, Rogers’s work relays the photographic tradition of abstinents like Julia Margaret Cameron while still seeming essentially modern.

Weird Beauty Face Paintings by Alexander Khokhlov

Alexander Khokhlov is a Russian photographer with specialty to photographic portraits, that also creates stunning Face Paintings.

Russian photographer Alexander Khokhlov in collaboration with the make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan has created this series of modern-art inspired photos of models with their faces painted to appear as two-dimensional…
Using a little post-production trompe l’oeil trickery and crafty make-up techniques, the photographer turns traditional 3D portraits into a living replica of 2D art.
Now turning his attention away from the monochromatic and toward the concept of colorful close-ups, Alexander Khokhlov has transformed traditional portraits into forms we might recognize in art galleries. Along with Kutsan, he’s replicated a pixelated Mona Lisa in the flesh, a punchy pop art design on a modern pin-up and even a take on Obama’s election poster. Originally inspired by Andy Warhol’s portraits, the photos have given birth to a whole new medium of their own.

The forms are in black and white and in colors, the already impressive face paintings become even more theatrical as the photographer plays with the high contrast between light and shadow, creating these unorthodox photographic portraits.

Glowing Dress Turns Claire Danes Into Cinderella At The Met Gala

     More info: Instagram

The theme of this year’s Met Ball, fittingly sponsored by Apple, was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, and Claire Danes’ dress took the cake. Designed by Zac Posen, he “sourced the fiber optic woven organza in this dress from France, and there are 30 mini battery packs sewn into the gown’s understructure,” according to FastCo.

The Met Gala is held annually for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum Of Art’s Costume (Fashion) Institute in New York City, the only department that has to fund itself. The invitation-only black-tie event is held on the first Monday in May, with tickets this year going for 30,000 USD, and tables for 275,000 USD.

Fiber Optic Radiance

However lovely the gown is in the daylight, it’s when the lights go down that the full impact of this gown is visible. Woven fiber optic organza from France adds the sparkle, using 30 mini battery packs sewn into seams of the dress.

A True Show-Stopper

Zac Posen is an awe-inspiring designer, who captivated everyone with his « knock it out of the park », show-stopper Cinderella gown. Mr. Posen’s ingenious concept will probably start a new age in dress design. It’s a work of art worth sharing.

Lovely Handmade Insect-themed Jewelry By Nadezhda Belokon

More info: on Etsy

Some people fear insects, and to be true they really look kinda weird. But these handmade beetles scare me only with the impossible skill that their creator has mastered.

Nadezhda Belokon’ is a craftswoman from Ulyanovsk, Russia. She took her creative path in 2013 and tried herself in different types of art. Some time ago she got interested in creating jewelry with beads and gemstones. The artist uses only high-quality Japanese beads and beautiful rear stones. But look at the precious brooches, pendants and earrings she makes! Even cockroaches look exquisite in this shape. They amaze with the anatomical accuracy and beauty compared to Nature herself.

 Fashion Where Slavic Folklore Reigns of Agnieszka Osipa

Follow her on Facebook, Instagram and Behance

Poland based costume designer Agnieszka Osipa creates a wardrobe for another world. Another time. Her creations turn modern women into mythic royalty — protectors of ancient lands.

She graduated from the Lodz Academy of Fine Arts, with diploma in fashion design.

Agnieszka Osipa rents out her costumes and also takes commissions — if ever you were in the market for a truly breathtaking, spellbound dress or crown for an occasion demanding nothing less than ethereal perfection, this should be your first stop.

Osipa draws inspiration from painting and folklore. As a girl, she was fascinated by folklore and felt inspired by Eastern European traditions. This surreal mythology has helped form her artistic style.

Polish designer Agnieszka Osipa’s creations feel like home to me, embodying a sort of feral holiness I associate with Slavic folklore and imagery. Its grand and decadent but wild, refined yet chaotic — her fashion often inseparable from the moody, atmospheric dreamscapes she creates with her photographers. Each image is uniquely powerful, with intricate beading and delicate lace covering gowns and headdresses like diamond-bright goosebumps: details liable to draw blood.

“I feel that Slavic culture is often regarded as minor compared to other cultures of the world. I try to change that by showing how rich and inspiring it can be, when you really dig into it. I search legends, demonology, and fairy tales from the Eastern region of Europe and try to include the forms and symbols into what I make.”

Art Crush: Helmo – Bêtes de Mode

Art Crush: Helmo – Bêtes de Mode

 

French design team Helmo – Thomas Couderc and Clément Vauchez – put together a pretty crafty series called Bêtes de Mode using an anaglyph 3D technique. The images of the animals in the red hue merged with images of beautiful people in the cyan hue – in a synchronous pose – make you almost want to put your 3D glasses on. But really, it’s not necessary, because the design aesthetic is so striking and haunting, they are meant to be viewed as you see them now. How amazing would they look blown up, right?
