Sannah has a weirdly great talent at capturing people standing alone in a landscape. It’s as if each one of these people was having one of those daily moments of complete, melancholic day-dreaming. I tend to have those in the metro personally – but these landscapes seem a lot more pleasurable and Sannah captures the effect of the scenery quite beautifully.
Generation is a photo series by german photographer Frauke Theilking. It shows the differences and similarities between generations, specifically looking at mother/daughter and father/son. It’s really striking set, and I think the plain set up of the shots really works, keeping the focus on the concept whilst also showing that sometimes less really is more.
Barcelona based photographer Pol Bassal has an exceptional eye for composition. I can’t stop imagining every single one of his pictures as a framed piece. It’s definitely something about his ability to emphasize the most interesting details in simple settings.
This is a tiny fraction of Po’s work, he’s got over a thousand pictures on his photostream. All shot in film, unless I’m mistaken; and all fantastic (no mistake there).
I’m one of those people who goes straight to the ‘personal’ or ‘sketchbook’ sections of artist portfolios. I find it gives a nice insight into what really drives the artist, although the general outlook of a portfolio also gives a great impression. In this case, after finding Jordan’s great drawings on our Flickr group, I checked out her skecthbook set and loved it just as much as the rest of her work.
Jordan seems to be inspired by a wide variety of things including typography, objects, people and patterns. She inserts nice subtle tones of color to her sketches and often has a clear message in mind.

After going through so many Flickr photostreams everyday, you start noticing a general progression in people’s work from the creation of their account to the present day. In very general terms, you expect someone’s oldest work to be their most amateur-looking.
In Théo’s case, (and I can say this because I went through the 27 pages of pictures on his flickr) the quality of his pictures went from great to excellent. He has what seems to be an inborn talent to capture beautiful, youthful moments with surreal tones.
