Lady Gaga’s ‘Fame’ fragrance promotional film

Oh Lady Gaga… No matter what you do: I love it. From her music videos to the gorgeous McQueen dresses, from the bad-ass pop-songs to the way she stands up for gay rights in America: Gaga is awesome. So you can imagine I was thrilled to hear that Gaga was planning on releasing her own perfume lats year, one now finally released worldwide. The...

Laura Makabresku

Even though faces are rarely seen in the photos of Laura Marabresku there’s something intimate to be found in her work. The use of the same models (herself and her boyfriend) and repeated elements like the beautiful Polish landscape and dead animals make the photos feel weirdly familiar yet cold and distant. Laura Makabresku...

Tom Bagshaw

I have a little confession to make… Besides my obvious love of dark art I also really like everything cute. Just send me a picture of a baby-sloth and you make my day! No really: baby animals, all things small, a certain Japanese kitty with a big red bow… I just love my daily dose of cute. So you can imagine how excited I was when I...

Liza Corbett

Every now and then you’ll find an artist who seems to combine all different sorts of things you really like into their art. Recently I discovered the work of American illustrator Liza Corbett and was amazed by how much of my favourite things she frequently features in her work: from girls in gorgeous Baroque gowns with beautiful hairdo’s to...

Jürgen Heckel

One of my favourite words in the English language is bleak. Just take a look at the name of this blog and you’ll see just how much I love it ;) The meaning fits my taste in art perfectly: mysterious, desolate, cold and often sad or melancholic. I think German photographer Jürgen Heckel shares my love for bleakness, his nature photography is a...

Miss Van

Feminine, provocative and slightly erotic; just a few word to describe the remarkable style of Miss Van. This Spanish artist started out as one of few female graffiti artists and her dolls are now known and loved all over the world. If you’ve got some money to spend you should definitely check out Miss Van’s webshop Princesas Market, which...

It’s the magazines’ biggest issue of the year, covering all the new and important collections. It’s not unusual for the glossies to have a double amount of pages to...

Alison Scarpulla

The combination of using expired film, drug store processing and using wet or dirty lenses make the photos of Alison Scarpulla quite mysterious, a little bit creepy and yet sometimes a bit romantic. Alison Scarpulla website Alison Scarpulla interview at Lodown...

Paulina Otylie Surys

If six year old me would look at Paulina Otylie Surys’ work she would see the work of a rebel: Paulina seems to do everything to her photos you just can’t do with photos. Touch them with your fingers, write on them, even peel layers off; how dare you! Six year old me would be shocked ;) Fortunately times have changed and instead of a rebel I...
