  • NY Through the Lens - New York City Photography - Soho cobblestone street at night. New York City. ...
    More info
    Soho cobblestone street at night. New York City. There is a certain serenity that can found when wandering New York City streets at night. These moments pause the forward motion and flow of city life. Street lights flicker against wet cobblestone and glass windows stare back languidly. Remnants of previous signs of life sit on curbs while bicycles lean against stoops resting briefly in the calm embrace of the night. —- Someone suggested a few months ago that a common theme to my photography was loneliness. I recounted to him how in the earlier days of my website, people would message me asking if I deliberately removed people from my shots. They couldn’t believe that in a city as densely populated as New York City, moments like the ones I am fond of capturing exist in reality. I can definitely say that I have never removed anyone from my shots. The truth is that even in a city of a little over 8 million people, the city often pauses and takes a breath. The in-between moments where life empties from the streets, when the city becomes a private sanctuary are captivating. These moments are fleeting and short-lived but they breathe life into the same streets that boast activity in the moments that tend to define them. — View this photo larger and on black on my Google Plus page — Buy “In-Between Moments - Soho - New York City” Posters and Prints here, View my store, email me, or ask for help.

  • Art And Ecstasy An Interview With Artist Sara Falli AUTRE
    More info
    The artworks of Florence based Sara Falli are both mythic and phantasmagorical. They tell visual stories with simple, but complex devices a chaotic, dark, and beautiful world of strange creatures, women seemingly contorted with desire, and the veins of stained water color that conjure blood and ritual. Falli is telling us secrets with her brushstrokes, but keeps them deeply hidden in a labyrinth of multidimensionality. Falli has also published an autobiography, entitled Vita di Saragaia, which hints at a dysfunctional past which adds yet another layer. PAS UN AUTRE: When did you know you wanted to become an artist? SARA FALLI: I began to think of myself as an artist in a very hazy way when I was 10. I noticed that art made me feel good and this happened before I even started to become aware of things... I really began without making a decision and it has become a need I cannot help but satisfy, otherwise I think I'd be a very sad person. However I started using the word "artist" to definemy status only ten years ago when I owned my first studio, after finishing my studies at the Academy of Fine Arts. AUTRE: When did you start drawing in your current style? FALLI: My style now is really just a stage that I am exploring, I do not know where it will take me, but I love to experiment and give myself new goals. I am very different when I work on canvas than when I work on paper, because as materials and type of paints change, I am very much guided by the impact of color now. AUTRE: How would you describe your artworks? FALLI: My works are anchors of an underground work that is within me. Those that I have been able to do are perhaps a thousandth part of what I would like to do; my job is to keep on trying to make visible to myself and others my underground world. AUTRE: What are some of your inspirations/influences? FALLI: I am inspired by everything that moves me and captures my interest. I place these feelings aside for a long time, then one day the whole or a part reaches out, always transformed by my use of color, for me the mediation through the matter is crucial, the ink pigments mixed with water, the smudge of graphite... I do not know if I would be able to be a conceptual artist and never get my hands dirty, but one day it could be stimulating to try there too. AUTRE: What do you think about when you are making art? FALLI: When I create art I am either intractable or in ecstasy, almost "I can't draw a single line" or "I will do it, I am invincible". It takes me a while to find the right dimension, I need good music, space and time to "lose". FALLI: In 2007 I wrote an autobiographical novel that was published by a major Italian publishing house. I had a very "offbeat" infancy, to use an euphemism, and I wanted to tell it. On the cover of the book there are 4 of my oil paintings; in that period I was painting people's objects, and those were my objects. Now besides painting I'm writing short stories. AUTRE: Whats next? FALLI: Then, for the future, I can only say that I will always be doing, never trying to reach a finality. I am terrified of finding myself at the finish, but the goal is not so much the finish, it is nothing but a mirage, you can see it only while walking. You can find Sara Falli's book Vita di Saragaia here. You can also follow her on flickr to see new works. Text by Oliver Maxwell Kupper for Pas Un Autre.

  • 10 QUESTIONS WITH MODEL ASHLEY SMITH
    More info
    There’s a reason why everyone is talking about Ashley Smith. The Texas-native is not only a timeless beauty with an adorably iconic gap-toothed grin, but her energy and charisma are infectious. We mean, the girl is charming. Check out the interview below and try not to fall in love, we dare you. Can you say, new girl crush? Q & A: F21: Describe a perfect day in NYC. AS: The perfect day in NYC would be on a Sunday. You wake up late and bike to Café Orlin, or someplace like that, to get a late brunch, bike to Central Park, and then - after having a couple of games of soccer - go watch your favorite band play at Webster Hall. F21: How do you get ready for a photoshoot? AS: It’s really all about music for me. Sometimes if I have a long car trip to remote locations for photoshoots, I’ll just put in my headphones and dance to myself and feel out my body. I don’t feel like I’m a big poser, if I hold something for 15 minutes I’m like, “This does not look right, I’ve got to start this over now.” F21: What are your obsessions right now? AS: I’m really, really obsessed with leather gloves. I spend so much time going to all the vintage stores in New York looking for cool leather gloves - like biker gloves! I just think that they can spice up any kind of look. I’m kind of obsessed with leather of all shapes and forms. I’m also obsessed with orangey-red lipstick. I think it’s so fun and so youthful, really cool and spunky. And also I’ve been really obsessed with coconut milk for some reason. It’s kind of a strange obsession, don’t judge me! F21: Who was your style icon growing up? AS: My sister was kind of my style icon actually. She wore band t-shirts, went to concerts, and hung out with boys and that’s who I wanted to be like – I wanted to be just like my sister. She didn’t like many girly things, she liked jeans and Airwalks and Keds and I just thought she was pretty much the coolest person I had ever met. She doesn’t wear perfume either, she only wears cologne. She’s a super boy, so in a way I grew up a total boy – which is interesting with my figure I guess? I don’t know. F21: Tell us a deep dark secret. AS: I don’t know if it’s secret, but I’m a giant nerd. Really big nerd. I love comic books and video games and I read Harry Potter. I’ve read all of them! I went and watched every movie on every opening day. I’m just a big nerd. Don’t tell anybody! F21: Who’s your all-time celebrity crush? AS: Do you know the band The Hives? So there’s this lead singer, his name is Howlin’ Pelle…I’m gonna marry that man one day, it’s gonna happen. It’s just gonna happen. F21: What’s your biggest fear? AS: A cockroach in my bed – that’s freakin’ scary. If you wake up and there’s something crawling on you…not cool. How long has he been there? I’ve been sleeping! F21: What are your pet peeves? AS: When people smack their gum. Is that even necessary? But, how do you say that nicely? F21: If you weren’t modeling, what would you be doing instead? AS: If I wasn’t modeling right now I’d be going to college and I would be probably studying art. I draw pretty much every day, I have this giant sketchbook that stuffed full of pictures from memories that I’ve had within the past couple of years, so I’d probably be doing something like that. I don’t know what I’m going to be when I grow up… and that’s okay. F21: Why do you think the gap in your teeth has become so iconic? AS: My gap really made me because it really is unique. It’s quite a big space and it’s quite weird that it works so well, a lot of people are shocked by that – I’m a little shocked by that too. I grew up with it and all of my best friends were like “promise me that you’ll never get it changed!” and I was like, “Ok fine I won’t ever get it changed!” And I won’t ever get it changed - it’s just part of me and I embrace it.
  • Artistaday.com Ann Marshall
    More info
    About Ann: Ann Marshall grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. She graduated from School of Visual Arts in New York City. She has worked in a gallery, illustrated children’s books and traveled nationally and internationally as an ethnographer and consumer anthropologist. She now works as a portrait and fine artist. The first impression of Ann Marshall’s art is one of startling beauty. Her work is not cheaply sentimental, splashy, nor particularly visceral. You may not notice it in a populated room for some time–and it it would probably be lost in the sea of oversized canvases and booming video installations that characterize most contemporary exhibits. In fact, it’s probably best viewed in a private space, in the solitude of a small and quiet room like the one in which it was created. Marshall’s art whispers rather than shouts, which is somewhat like the artist herself, easygoing and relaxed, if a little reserved. Like her subjects, there’s an elusiveness behind her immediate demeanor. Taller than most, with a mass of curly brown hair, oversized earrings, and an I-got -lost-on-the-way-to-the-Renaissance-Fair sort of look, she stands out in a crowd. But her easy smile reveals an approachable warmth rather than pretension. She admits people who meet her are often surprised when they finally find out what she does, and usually tell her she seems too normal to be an artist (“I never know quite what to make of that comment,” she admits).
