Fashion, live music, vendors, a meet and greet with very special guests, and an awards ceremony to recognize our community’s amazing shining stars – more details will be coming soon!

“UNITY ONE / The Faces of Change was founded to raise awareness for Victims of Racism, Gender Inequality and Bullying. This evening will be bringing together like minded individuals of all nationalities, religions and over all diversity to share in each others creativity and experiences. 21 Altruistic individuals will also be recognized for their ongoing support in enhancing the quality of life for others.”


I had the pleasure to model for Derrick Van Der Kolk today at the DVDK Studio in The Cotton Factory for his series on “People That Are Interesting”. I love how raw and honest these are – Derrick is really amazing at his craft – and has the most incredible ability to bring all your emotions out and throw them on the table for all to see. No retouching, just straight up portraits of people as they are.

Check his work out on his company’s website: Style Group and consider hiring him and his awesome team for your next shoot!


11-ines-kozic-yatzerI am ever enamoured of the beautiful photography of French artist Inez Kozic. She delicately constructs incredible images that both convey a sense of serene beauty and inarticulate horror. Playfully decorating her subjects with hair, bone, and insects, she transforms even the most mundane of domestic chores into scenes of breathtaking exquisiteness and understated passion. The unique dream-like way she portrays her subjects adds to the quality of solitude and quiet reflection that these photographs already inherently possess, creating visual poetry.

I’ve always loved the look and textural feel of pointillist art – it’s such a meticulous process and often extremely time-consuming, but the end result is usually very striking. Prominent international interior and still life photographer Philip Karlberg decided to employ the technique while shooting celebrities that are famously known for wearing sunglasses for Plaza Magazine. Over the course of 6 days, he used around 1200 sticks to “sculpt” the faces and shoot them, creating an intriguing collection of photographs.

Can you guess which celebrities he’s portrayed?

To see more of Phili Karlberg’s pristine portfolio, visit his website.

Answers: Jackie O, Johnny Depp, John Belushi, Karl Lagerfeldt, Lady Gaga, and Steve McQueen.

Philly-born Matt Wisniewski is a young web developer who’s taught himself to create artistic “visual experiments,” as he likes to call them, using beautifully photographed portraits to create airy and ethereal collages infused with natural elements. Currently based in Brooklyn, he is finishing a computer science degree at the Rochester Institute of Technology, and works alongside photographers and artists in his free time.

Visit his website to see more of these simply gorgeous collages.

Taylor Holland’s photographs are so aesthetically pleasing and each series is so diverse, that I wanted to show you another collection – these are comprised of details from European tour bus designs, shot in Paris, circa 2011. I love the modern clean lines and bright colours, and he’s managed to frame them in such a way that they truly become works of geometric abstraction. He’s even published them in a book entitled Eurobus, available now on Matmos Press (Montreal, 2012).

If you liked the past two series, check out some of his other work, such as his collection Public Sleeping.


Hailing from Spokane, Washington, illustrator and photo-manipulator David Waters managed to land some pretty big clients while he was recently at the University of Idaho, studying graphic design. Huge companies like Adidas, Nike, and ESPN feature some of his work in their ads and he has had his work appear in a multitude of publications (on and offline), such as Advanced Photoshop Magazine, Computer Arts Magazine, Abduzeedo, and Digital Arts Magazine. And no wonder – this guy’s work is amazing!

What I love about Waters is that he doesn’t really stick to one formal artistic genre – he bounces around the grid creating a really rich and varied body of work. Inspired by his day-to-day experiences, and mentored by his colleagues and professors, he genuinely embraces creativity and makes a point of keeping his skills sharply-honed by constantly producing imaginative creations.

Okay, I admit it, I am a typography fetishist. There’s just something about being able to express yourself further than just using words. Lately, I’ve been immersed in collecting as many fonts as possible, and thank to my instructors and sites like I’ve learned a lot about typographical manipulation. But typography can go a lot further than just cool font designs. Here’s a few examples of quirky alphabet sets that I’ve recently come across. As a personal goal, I’m hoping to be able to create one of my own this year to add to my portfolio. There are an infinite number of possibilities…all I need to do is start brainstorming.
