In this new series of ten works photographer David LaChapelle, best known for his wild and elaborate fashion photography, he explores the vanity of life and beauty. With titles such as “Springtime”, “Late Summer”, “Early Fall” and “Deathless Winter” the works refer to the four seasons and allude to the life cycle: from birth to death. A contemporary take on the still life paintings of Flemish and Italian masters, these ornate florals contain references to present day culture and humanity, such as cigarette butts, Barbies, junk food, toys and telephones.

MEAT AMERICA is not just a photo story, art print bonanza and upcoming book by renowned photographer Dominic Episcopo. According to Dominic, it’s a state of mind, an eye-opening and artery-closing tour of America’s spirit of entrepeneurship, rebellion and positivity. It celebrates our appetite for insurmountable odds, limitless aspiration, and immeasurable success. A way for us to combine a few of our favorite things. Meat. Quotes. Facts. Photography. And the indefinable adjective that is “American.”

Bavarian-born photographer Eva Mueller is best known for her projection photography – projected light, shape and texture on nudes. But frankly, I find those are the least inventive and beautiful of her work.
With an enormous portfolio that includes everything from CD and album covers to lipstick ads, her large body of work is quite diverse, despite certain stylistic commonalities. She often acts as the art director for her own shoots, utilizing her knowledge of graphic design for both the concepts and compositions. Minimal and graphic, bold and clean, Mueller says her vision is that of “less is more.”
Once you pour over the following images, you’ll find that whether it’s gritty and black and white or slick and bright, indoors or outdoors, stylized or natural, her work has an undeniable beauty.
She’s shot for American and British record labels, editorials for the New York, Vellum and Zink magazine, ad campaigns for Steve Madden, Panasonic, Master Card and Guinness. her personal work, which consist largely of nudes, has been displayed in galleries and museums in London, Germany and the US.
