Capturing ‘Mermaid 105’


To capture a mermaid is to attain the unattainable.

For visual artist Michael Dweck, it was similar to fishing.

Now on display at New York’s legendary Staley-Wise Gallery in SoHo is the queen of mermaids, a 16-foot by 9-foot aqueous piece, titled Mermaid 105, embodying the allure and mystery of nature’s most beautiful mythical creature. Derived from Dweck’s 2009 collection, Mermaids, the image is the centerpiece of Staley-Wise’s Underwater exhibition. In fact, it is the largest piece the gallery has ever featured.

What makes Mermaid 105 so unique, though, is the irony and symbolism behind it. Dweck explains:

“The dry, mountable image of an aquatic form is the ironic remainder of two dreams: a man’s dream that’s dissolved into the inky sea, and the dream of his muse that’s been dragged to shore, dried and prepped for mounting.”  Read more >>

Floto + Warner Capture Liquid Sculptures

Even the most spectacular vistas of the West can get lost in a sea of bland repetition. Ever wonder what these monotonic landscapes would look like with a splash of color?

For their ‘Colourant’ series, Jeremy Floto and Cassandra Warner have chosen the barren landscape of Northern Nevada as their stage to capture vibrant pigmented liquid, free-flowing in midair. The New York-based husband and wife duo perfected the technique of lobbing the fluid and capturing the vivid colors mid-flight. The high shutter speed of about a 3,200th of a second seemingly froze the created shapes, disguising each as if a sculpture, encapsulating “a momentary graffiti of air and space.” Read more >>

Brooklyn Greenway Initiative’s “New Views 2014″ Celebrated at the Duggal Greenhouse

‘Reflections from Above’ Mirror New York City Streets


The Big Apple is universally known for its towering skyscrapers, breathtaking cityscape and beautiful architecture, making it the #1 photographed city in the world.

In ‘Reflections from Above,’ photographer Donna Dotan captured the streets of New York from a bird’s eye view at the top of many of the city’s glass skyscrapers.

Using the buildings themselves to reflect the images below, the lights and streets of the city are reproduced magnificently, creating mirror images of the bustling metropolis on the other half of the photographs.

Dotan told Mashable that the symmetry created by the reflections makes the photographs more abstract. Read more >>

The Heart Gallery of America: Finding Forever Homes For Foster Children

PRIDE Heart Gallery NYC 2014

According to Children’s Rights, there are roughly 400,000 children in foster care in the United States on any given day. Too often due to abuse or neglect, a child entering foster care will likely remain in a non-permanent environment for nearly two years.

With a core mission of finding “forever families” for foster care children, the Heart Gallery of America uses the power of photography to inspire families nationwide to consider adoption. Striking portraits by celebrity and award-winning photographers capture a smile on each child’s face, along with a sparkle of infinite possibility in their eyes. Through the network of 120+ Heart Gallery chapters, the photographs are exhibited across the country.
