Trippy collages made with textured rolls of paper

Psychedelic formations of rolled up paper are the beautiful result of artist Amy Eisenfeld Genser's obsession with paper and color.  My Modern Met profiled Amy's work and we're glad they did.  Although her final work appears quite abstract, Genser always starts out with an idea for a piece by using images and sketches and also drawing upon the beautiful imperfections of nature as......read more

OK, we're going to shoot our roommate watching TV to the sounds of Bach,......read more

Benoit Paille: Winter Walk

French-Canadian photographer finds beauty in the cold season

Benoit Paille has a knack for making run-of-the-mill places on earth seem like strange landscapes from some faraway planet.
