Luca D’Urbino’s illustrations, a mirror of the present day

Luca D’Urbino’s illustrations, a mirror of the present day

Giulia Guido · 2 years ago · Art

More and more frequently we find ourselves having to admit that, today more than ever, an image can be more powerful than lines and lines of words and that a drawing made up of a few, simple but skilfully calibrated and studied elements can have more strength than an extremely detailed one.

Luca D’Urbino, also known as D’Urbo Design, is an exponent of this current of artists who, through a synthetic and minimalist style, go straight to the point.

Born in 1988, Luca was born in Milan, a city where he has cultivated a passion for drawing since he was very young. Only once he graduated in Industrial Design at the Politecnico did he decide to devote himself exclusively to illustration and focus on his love for pencils, colors and white paper, enrolling at MiMaster.

Today Luca D’Urbino is known internationally thanks to his works that succeed in a brilliant, clear and punctual way to tell what happens around us, dealing with issues ranging from politics to climate change. This ability to bring his art into dialogue with current affairs has attracted several heads such as La Stampa, La Repubblica, the New York Times and, last but not least, The Economist of which he has become a regular illustrator.

Discover a selection of his works in our gallery below and to find out more go to his website!

Female portraits by Marat Safin

Female portraits by Marat Safin

Giulia Guido · 3 days ago · Photography

Women are the protagonists of the shots by Russian self-taught photographer Marat Safin. Lonely women, women in the house, in the kitchen or lying on the bed, women immersed in nature, free among the high grass, women looking in the car or immortalized in spontaneous poses. 

Marat’s female portraits convey a sense of calm, intimacy. 

The warm light that we find in all her shots immediately gives the family atmosphere, giving us an air of home, of familiarity. 

In our gallery you can find a selection of her shots, to find out more go to the Marat Safin’s Instagram profile

The world’s best nature photography of 2021

The world’s best nature photography of 2021

Tommaso Berra · 3 days ago · Photography

After the ranking of the best astronomical and microscope photographs of 2021, these days the best wildlife photos of the last year have also been awarded. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year is a competition organized by the Natural History Museum in London, now in its 57th edition.
There are many aspects that make extraordinary the 100 photos in competition, taken by professional photographers or amateurs and selected from 50 thousand proposals. On the one hand, the technique used and the patience in waiting to take the perfect shot, unrepeatable in many cases. On the other hand, the unusual point of view, which brings viewers closer to unusual natural events or animals that are difficult to approach, such as the shot of the spider as big as a human hand or the “selfie” taken by a grizzly bear in front of the carcass of a deer in the United States.

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest is divided into 19 categories, from which the two winners have been announced. Laurent Ballesta, who specializes in aquatic photography, won the Adult Grand Title Winner with an image capturing some camouflaged groupers in French Polynesia emerging from a cloud of eggs and sperm. It took the French photographer five years of night diving to capture this moment, which occurs only during the July full moon period.
The other winner of the wildlife photo contest was Vidyun R. Hebbar, just ten years old, who was awarded the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year for his image of a spider wrapped in its web, taken in Bangalore, India.

Erotic and sexy photography by Joshua Rhodes

Erotic and sexy photography by Joshua Rhodes

Buddy · 3 days ago · Photography

Joshua Rhodes is a Californian photographer present on Instagram with the accounts @fuzzyaxolotl and @fuzzyanalog.

His images are charged with solar eroticism: pin-up style models, portrayed with irony and sensuality, with a vintage style that seems to echo the editorial taste of Playboy and a certain 70s erotic cinema.

The statuesque bodies of blonde models shine in the sun on perfect beaches, emerge from the water of the ocean or crystalline pools.

Natural shots, delicate and glossy lights.

Check out a selection of his shots here, follow him on Instagram and on his personal website.
