Artist Jennifer Bolande uses billboards to advertise the very thing they so often distract us from. Set up between the Gene Autry Trail and Vista Chino in California, the installation not only draws drivers’ attention back to the natural landscape, in some instances the photos line up seamlessly with the real-life background. See more images from “Visible Distance / Second Sight” below or on display as part of Desert X until April 30.
“Impossible Balance”, photos created by Swedish Fashion photographer Marcus Palmqvist, with concept and art direction by Gem Fletcher. The models are dancers from the Stockholm dance company, and the movements were all captured in camera. More images below.

Here’s a little (and by little I mean massive) photo recap of this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii arts festival. I was fortunate to meet many artists whose work I’d been admiring for years from a computer screen, and I left feeling extremely inspired and excited to work on creative back at home. Have a look at many many photos below (some from me, some from Brandon Shigeta, some from Jasper Wong).
