SL Artist Profile

I am not a big fan of quotes; mostly because it seems like people are attached to them without actually applying them in their lives, or considering them deeply in terms of their consequences.  Nevertheless, I want to open this piece by a quote from Maya Angelou – not just because her loss is tremendous [...]


Recently, I had the great pleasure of meeting a very special SL photographer, Marcopol Oh.  I have been following his work for a few years, and I have watched his evolution from being a good artist to a great one. If my swiss-cheese memory is cooperating, the very first of his photographs that held my [...]


As many of you know, I spend a fair amount of time on flickr looking at various artists’  work and following their evolution, and their favorite works.  The main reason for this is that our photography series (Meet SL Photographer) started with the mission to introduce artists that make the world look amazing – either [...]


The very first time I heard about Thati Boucher was some time ago, when I saw a photograph of the one and only Caoimhe Lionheart whom I recently interviewed as well.

It is no secret that one of the privileges of writing is that I get a chance to not only write about fashion and life style, but also to meet creative and inspiring artists. One of my recent gems was a chat and photo shoot with the talented Cala Rossini. One thing I have noticed [...]


Welcome to another installation of Meet SL Photographer series. A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Cade Nansen, a young photographer with aspirations of becoming a plastic surgeon. He has a sunny and relaxed disposition, which is nothing like his darker (and on occasion eerie) pictures. As with all of our interviewed [...]


If you have been following our Meet SL Photographer series, you know that I spend a fair amount of time looking at Flickr streams of various photographers.  A long time ago, a picture in a stream caught my attention. At the time, I was drawn to the hair style that was featured because it looked [...]
