FEATURED ARTIST OF THE WEEK 
Jim Golden (USA) 

We’ve posted the amazing Relics of Technology series by Jim Golden a week ago, and since this is the best thing we’ve seen these days we give the FEATURED ARTIST OF THE WEEK title and our header gallery to Jim. 

Jim Golden is owner and photographer behind Jim Golden Studio in Portland, Oregon. Here is what he had to say about this wicked project: - The seeds for the Relics of Technology project started when I found a brick cell phone at a thrift store in rural Oregon. Since finding it, similar bits and pieces of old technology and media kept grabbing my attention. The fascination was equal parts nostalgia for the forms, and curiosity as to what had become of them. One thing led to another and I was on the hunt for groups of media and key pieces of technology, most of which have now been downsized to fit in the palm of our hand. These photos are reminders that progress has a price and our efforts have an expiration date. 

Make sure to check out his entire portfolio and follow him on his socials!

It’s a wet #BikeToWorkDay in Washington, DC, but luckily J.O. Lose’s patented one-wheeled velocipede is equipped with an umbrella!
Penny-farthing?  Monowheel? Fixie?  How are you biking to work today?

Ysabel LeMay’s work is a series of hyper-realistic digital portraits of nature. Each piece is assembled from hundreds of digitally manipulated photos. 

LeMay on how nature has inspired her work:

It is here, there, all around, living, transforming, and it never ceases to enthrall and inspire me. I let her lead throughout the rhythm of the seasons. By means of my camera, I attempt to capture her subtleties and beauty in its purest form as I interpret to you her divinity as I sense it. A leaf may appear commonplace at first glance, but when our eyes linger over it, the mundane becomes something of wonder. The arrangement of colors, the shapes that define it and the veins that crisscross throughout become the personas. There is so much beauty in this world! We need only to take the time to surrender to the spectacle. My art is a tribute to Nature. It is an offering; A moment of contemplation.
