Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I guess my last semester is getting the best of me! That is no excuse though, since posting about art is way more fun for me than final exams I have to post…

Sara Cwynar: photographer

Sara Cwynar is yet another photographer that I have come to admire.  Her use of color is muted and beautiful. Check out those black and whites in the gallery provided though, the subtle features of the subject are so mysterious.…

Anja Verdugo: Photographer & designer

“Anja Verdugo lives and works in Portland, Oregon. As a photographer she creates film and digital images, working for local and international designers. Her personal work is often rooted in nature and feminine expression.” I wish Anja would bring more of her personal…

Rebecca Cairns: Photographer

Rebecca Cairns is a photographer from Toronto, Canada but now lives and works in Berlin. Her work reminds me a lot of Francesca Woodman’s and I wouldn’t be surprised if she is a inspiration to her. She does a lot…

Francesca Woodman: Photographer

There is too much to say about Francesca Woodman’s life in one simple post on AdLib. But I will say this: I first heard about Francesca last year in my photography class and fell in love with her work. I…

Mary Temple

Mary Temple’s work is extremely consistent. Most of her works have to do with space, and light and how they work with each other. Sounds a lot like photography to me, but most of her works are installations, prints, and…

Dana Tanamachi

Wow, I really respect this woman. Dana Tanamachi is a designer and custom chalk letterer living in Brooklyn. That’s right, custom chalk letterer. I bet that looks really cool on her resume. She does a variety of work including package…

Vivian Maier

As you may have read in my last post, I had the opportunity to view original Vivian Maier Photos at the AIPAD photography show. I learned about Vivan last year, and her story is one of a kind. Of course, she…

AIPAD photo show

This weekend I have the incredible opportunity to attend the AIPAD (The Association of International Art Dealers) Photo show in New York City. The show was held at the Park Ave. Armory and panel discussions were held throughout the day…

Alberto Seveso

To be honest, I am only intrigued by one of Alberto’s series of works. But hey, to each his own, right? I’ve seen this done plenty of times, but these are just stunning. It’s amazing how something so simple can be so…

Scout & Catalogue

I’m not entirely sure how I came across this, but I guess that doesn’t matter. All that matters is that that photography is just my type, and this is a little bit of a selfish post. Honestly, what attracted me…

Brooke Shaden, Photographer

I discovered Brooke Shaden on the evening news in my hometown of Lancaster, PA. Why did they feature her? Because she is a Lancaster native making it big time in the Los Angeles. That rarely happens, besides the taylor kinney/lady…

Cass Bird, continued!

I recently wrote about Cass Bird, but wanted to share her most recent work (that i know of). Cass shot Urban Outfitters entire spring collection catalog, which personally I love. The photosgraphs make you feel like you are right there,…

Edward Burtynsky, Photographer

Let’s talk some more photography, shall we? You may have heard of him, but I think he is just too good to not feature here on AdLib if you haven’t. Thats what I’m all about, introducing great artists (photographers, mostly)…

Faucher Artists

Well, I dont know if I can give you much information about these guys unless I research every single one of the artists on their page. But I thought this was a great way to introduce several artists in one…

Twelve Fluid Ounces

As promised in a recent post, I am now introducing Twelve Fluid Ounces. Twelve Fluid Ounces is a project started by a good friend of mine, Illustrator/designer Brandt Imhoff. Brandt is a recent grad  from Tyler School of Art where he…

Ye Rin Mok

I don’t know much about Ye Rin Mok other than she was born in Seoul and now lives and works in Los Angeles. Oh, and she makes some beautiful images. Her work has been featured in Spin, Nylon, W, among…

Baubauhous

Baubauhaus is a little bit like pinterest but for serious artists that just want to inspire each other. It’s a simple idea, full of great art. I found this site through a friend of mine, whom I will feature here…

Rifle Paper Company

I’m sure you’ve seen her work, but I just wanted to share the latest news for Rifle Paper Company! Rifle is a small stationary boutique based in Winter Park, FL. Started by Anna Bond along with her husband Nathan, Anna is…

Franziska Ebert: Photographer, Designer & Illustrator

Franziska Ebert is a photographer/designer/illustrator out of Hamburg Germany, and I believe is friends with Sarah Bernhard (whom I wrote about a few weeks ago). Looking through her website honestly freaks me out a little because her photographs remind me…
