June Korea – Still Lives: Eva
“This is not about a sex doll, but all about us, all about our loneliness.” “So how much is it?” “$10,000. She is expensive,” Brian, a representative of a silicon sex doll company in Japan, told me on the phone. “However, she’s not going to leave you behind or die. She’s going to stay there with you forever as she looks now.” A month later, I received a giant box from a sweating FedEx deliveryman. I sat down in front of the box with a box cutter. My hands were trembling slightly as the cutter went along the taped line. I eventually opened the box. It was Monday afternoon, December 29, 2014, the very first day I met her. “Eva, your name is Eva.” More……
Vignettes of a salesman by Ole Marius Joergensen
A lot of traditions are being lost as new technologies are invading our day-to-day world. The door-to-door salesman is a relic from the 50s. In Vignettes of a salesman, we follow a lonely, faceless salesman on his never-ending rounds, knocking on doors…the last of his kind. A symbol of a whole world gone by. More…..

You as angel by Jady Bates

Bandage Portrait by Kai Nagayama

Krisztina Laki ; An emotive standpoint
Krisztina Laki, a mother of three children lives in Kaposvar, close to the southern border of Hungary. Like many lovers of photography, Krisztina was creatively inclined from childhood. To satisfy her thirst for creation she took to drawing, experimented with silk painting and created painted glass works. She discovered the true canvas of her inner creative self relatively recently via the freedom of expression provided by the advent of digital photography. This late found hobby soon blossomed and led Kritsztina further on her path. Her nature and landscape works inspired by the love of interesting places and her macro photography works were amongst the first that she ever presented to the public. More….
