Thaw by Tatiana Shvetsova-Yaperova

I again return to the naked body in the series "Thaw". I left from excessive sentimentality, I hope. The body is represented as an object of the environment, material, texture in some photographs. It is hardly comfortable to feel like a continuation of the inanimate line. Further - it comes alive. The body is expressive, it is our shell, it feels pain and changes taking place. Life is priceless and fragile. Human is beautiful without excesses.

Abstracted Circles by Marissa J. Menefee

The seemingly simple circle presents to me endless opportunities and inspiration to create whimsical and abstract compositions. Multiple facets of the circle’s shape and capabilities grab me; a circle contains zero straight lines; a circle cannot be filled with other circles; a line that never ends, circles are often a symbol of infinity. When lost, it feels like we are going in circles. When there is great accomplishment, it feels as if we have come full circle.

Surreal Pastel Colors by Karen Khachaturov

New series by Armenian photographer Karen Khachaturov is full of new colors and a soft light, which combined both surreal ideas and items to make images more abstract. In most of the photos you can see hidden faces that carry an escapism message. The images are from the concepts: the supper, the post office, the maid, the popcorn and the dreamers series.
