  • Francis is an amazing artist but so down to earth at the same time. You can really tell he’s this good from hard work. He did some hip hop portraits a few years back that are so sick(Nas, Big Pun and some others)

  • Love his stuff, so relaxed and messy-delicious.
    I was trying to pick a favorite, but it’s all of them.

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
