“Days of Melancholy”, a series of stunning portraits by photographer Tatiana Vinogradova focused on the experience of gay men in Russia. From her site:

“In Russia the level of intolerance toward homosexuality has been rising sharply. A 2013 survey found that 74% of Russians said homosexuality should not be accepted by society. 16% of Russians surveyed said that gay people should be isolated from society, 22% said they should be forced to undergo treatment, and 5% said homosexuals should be “liquidated”.”

Check out more photos below, and see the full series on her site (worth it to read the quotes from each of her subjects as well).

Artist Spotlight: Fantasaraxia

A selection of work by my friend Boldtron, currently creating magnificent stuff in Cinema 4D under the name Fantasaraxia. Also a shoutout to Arnau, who first shared these works over on Artnau (my favourite site for visual inspiration). If you ever visit Barcelona hit these guys up, I had the best time there with them!

Have a look at more images of Boldtron’s work below!
