{artist showcase: Fabienne Rivory}

How much do you love these pieces from Paris-based artist Fabienne Rivory? This is her 2013 collection named MiroirThe simplicity of the black & white reflective photos with the perfectly-places yet free flowing pops of watercolour are beautiful. Do you think if I moved to Paris I could make art this lovely? 

You can have one of these beauties in your own home – check out her print shop

Warning! Case of wanderlust may be a symptom of viewing this post. I came across this great Instagram photo series by Russian photographer Murad Osmann. Murad took a picture of himself being led by his girlfriend while traveling around the world. What a unique way to add a human element to travel photos. It doesn’t hurt that his girlfriend happens to be incredibly attractive. Can you tell where they are in each photo?

And finally a snapshot of the couple in action. See the whole photo series hereJust in case your curiosity is getting to you, this is what his glamorous model girlfriend looks like from the unseen angle.

I recently updated and cleaned up my portfolio/website. I work on mostly beauty projects and I realized that I’ve Art Directed so many shoots that I don’t have up on my site which is a shame. Here are some of my favourite beauty shots that didn’t didn’t make it in as whole projects but the photography is lovely standing alone. 

You may recognize this first one that’s part of Shoppers Drug Mart’s current summer beauty campaign. Apparently lots of people have been asking about that fun lip colour.
