A beautiful floral series by New York/Stockholm-based artist Brandy Kraft. Carefully constructed petal by petal, Kraft’s photo-realistic oil paintings bring together new and dying elements from a variety of flora to create invented hybrids. While touching on cycles of growth and decay, Kraft’s unique flowers can also be seen celebration of a human level. As Kraft notes:
“On a personal level, it’s about finding the beauty in life’s inevitable transitions and on a broader level it touches on themes of identity, diversity, and acceptance.”

Acrylic painting on photographs by artist Donal Murphy. Expanding on the idea of reading the weather, Murphy entertains the thought of what it would be like if our environment not only possessed a collective consciousness but was able to communicate with us by mobilizing matter into its own kind of alphabet. See more from Murphy’s imaginative series below.

Photographer Sam Parkes traveled throughout Cuba documenting the country’s youth and trying to ascertain their visions of and attitude toward the future. As he shared with us:
“The nature of a photograph is limitation. I wanted the images to push those limits, to fill the space both physically and viscerally, to capture in the composition of an image an intensity, a longing, a desire for new possibilities, a forging of a world to come.”
