Self-Portraits by 87-Year-Old Photographer Kimiko Nishimoto

Nishimoto4

Kimiko Nishimoto learned how to use a camera for the first time at the age of 71 and even furthered her skills by taking courses on digital editing to manipulate her images. While she mostly focuses on still life and nature photography, she has a series of hilarious self-portraits involving random costumes and staged falls. More images below!

Kickstarter of the Day: Stronger Shines the Light Inside

Smith5

While Los Angeles-based photographer Angie Smith has shot for the likes of The New Yorker and New York Times, her latest project is for Boise, Idaho — specifically, the dozens of refugees who have resettled in the area.

The proposed project, Stronger Shines the Light Inside, is a large-scale, outdoor exhibition of the intimate portraits and life stories she’s documented during her time in Boise. Her hope is that the success of the project will allow her to take on other resettlement cities throughout the U.S. and continue to shed light on inspiring stories of integration. Check out more images and a video clip on the project below!

“Paper Cuts” by Artist Winnie Truong

Truong8

New work by our friend Toronto-based artist, Winnie Truong, who we’ve featured many times before (click here for previous posts). “Paper Cuts” was created during her Doris McCarthy artist residency at Fools Paradise this past Winter. Really cool to see her work moving in a new direction introducing the layers of cut paper.

See more images below or, if you happen to be in Toronto, on display at ESP (Erin Stump Projects) 1558 Dupont St. until April 23rd!
