Mandy Tsung

Mandy Tsung's surreal portraits embody the vulnerability, strength, love, and sexuality that are inherent within human beings. Her work is about capturing the complexity of emotion, and is greatly inspired by editorial fashion photography as well as nature. She draws from her multicultural heritage to blend Ukiyo-e aesthetics with vibrant, pop-culture inspired female characters to create work that is both captivating in its beauty and thought provoking.

Alexey Titarenko - City Of Shadows

Alexey Titarenko received his Master of Fine Arts degree from the Department of Cinematic and Photographic Art at Leningrad's Institute of Culture in 1983. He began taking photographs at the beginning of the 1970s, and in 1978 became a member of the well-known Leningrad photographic club Zerkalo, where he had his first solo exhibition (1978).

Since this was creative activity that had no connection with the official Soviet propaganda, the opportunity to declare himself publicly as an artist came only at the peak of Perestroika in 1989 with his "Nomenclature of Signs" exhibition and the creation of Ligovka 99, a photographers' ex
hibition space that was independent of the Communist ideology

Tattoos & Addiction

I recently just had a new tattoo done, adding to my ever increasing collection. If you haven't got any tattoo you probably won't understand this when I say they are ever so addictive. Not sure whether its the thrill or the fact I simply might just enjoy pain???? At the moment I've got 4 and soon on the 3rd October I'll have another amazing one to add to the collection. To go with my rockabilly style and my love with retro I got a pair of cherries tattooed on my wrist, they are gorgeous and surprisingly it didn't hurt when I got my wrist tattooed. My boyfriend also got tattooed at the same time (how romantic)! Unfortunately for him he got his neck tattooed and that did hurt :)
