With the Women’s March on Washington rapidly approaching, photographer Clayton Cubitt set about immortalizing some of the organizers and activists involved with the event. On January 21, 2017, women and advocates for women’s rights will march in Washington—as well as in other cities and countries during sister events. Cubitt’s set of powerful portraits gives a voice to the women behind the march, their faces glowing and vital as they explain why they’ve decided to participate.
Lately I’ve been noticing a growing, or should I say sinking, trend. Artists have created fantastic illusions consisting of sculptures that look as if they’re sinking into the ground! Whether it’s Sue and Peter Hill who made the magnificent Mud Maid at the Lost Gardens of Heligan, UK (see above) or Banky who transforms an ordinary row of orange traffic cones into an extraordinary work of art, one thing is certain. These pieces make us do a double-take!
