Unusual and surrealist images, this is what the protographer Aisha Zeijpvelds, based in Amsterdam presents here with a portrait series. What is particular is the directing, which appears like totally zany. Some of the models have limbs split into two as while some others have the eyes hidden by a mirror or by a smoke heap.
Shae’s photographic practice uses painted photography, a technique employed to
add colour to photographs before colour processing was invented. In a world where images can be digitally manipulated, finding a photographer’s practice that explores alternative methods is rare and really refreshing. Her painted photographs seem mythical, situating models in an eerie and beautiful wilderness.
New school rapper with an old school flow, South African artist Sipho the Gift doesn’t sound like any other hip-hop artist that’s come out of the country’s local scene in a while. That’s what makes him so good.
As this video demonstrates, his music making process is as organic as his sound, and it’s great to see a rapper stripped down and his element.
H/T to Alec Lomami for putting us on!
He gets dressed w/o taking a shower and brushing his teeth tho. Ugh. Did he not have enough budget for that scene?!
