Preston Zeller, in association with his agency, Zellerhaus Digital, have just released a unique short film of Alaska that is comprised entirely of animated still photography. The video, featuring approximately 60 photos from the collection, is being released exclusively online and has its own website where viewers have the chance to win a print from the collection.

View now at http://AlaskaInPerspective.com

After nearly 7 years as a collection of photos, artist Preston Zeller is finally realizing the vision he once had for turning his photo collection from a two week trip in Alaska into an animated video. The road to here has been a long one, as over the years Preston also self-published a coffee table book using the same photos, and has promoted the photos through various outlets. The film though was the ultimate goal.

Titled “Alaska in Perspective,” the short film takes viewers through a variety of terrains, experiences, and transportation methods that all lend...

Lucky Cole Is A Fictional Charactor In Tres Buffalo Novel Blue Moon Raining

March 23rd, 2015 - Ochopee, FL

 Lucky Cole Is A Fictional Charactor In Tres Buffalo Novel Blue Moon Raining

He may have be on to something. Having spent more than a few days on the water, I know that you will see , and hear, things that you might not fully grasp. It could be a manatee breathing heavy in the dark water around you boat, or it could be breathless mermaids, tired from fighting the current and resting in the shallows. If you shine the spotlight, they are almost never there, and after the shock of the bright light fades, you can hear them again. So, does knowing something’s there and being unable to get absolute proof mean it doesn’t exist?

The question of the existence of Mermaids is one that has existed since men first went down to the sea in boats, and maybe even before that. The current suggestion is that this question, of existence, is best left to historians, philosophers, and anthropologists. No confirmed of aquatic humanoids has ever been found. Yet they occupy the collective conscious of seafarers, even today. That might be because we have forgotten how to dream...

Woman In The Color Blue. New Insights From Artur Kalinski

March 23rd, 2015 - Warsaw, Ma

Woman In The Color Blue. New Insights From Artur Kalinski

Polish artist, photographer and performer, Artur Kalinski painted, in the collection "BlueMotion", his latest image entitled "She". It is a vision of the female body in a blue tone.

The image size 70/200cm presents the profile of a women in the color blue. This time, the artist known for painting with pure gold, put the precious metal aside for a moment to use other colors and use them to create the form of a woman. As a result, the image has gained the impression of space and three- dimensional shapes as well as plasticity.

Artur Kalinski, creating his masterpiece, used only two colors - blue and white - thus bringing out the subtly feminine model. The fun color, specifically when painting the work "She", emphasizes feminine shapes, which are outlined with intense light.

The image does not contain controversial elements, but makes a subtle statement, giving the impression of mystery and uniqueness. This allows viewers to use their own imagination.

Polish Artist In Defense Of Russian Art And Freedom Of Expression

March 23rd, 2015 - Warsaw, Ma

Polish Artist In Defense Of Russian Art And Freedom Of Expression

In protest against the hypocrisy of the Russian government and the lack of freedom of expression in the Russian environment of art and culture, Polish artist Artur Kaliński painted a picture of the "Angel of Death" and handed him personally to a representative of the Russian Embassy in Poland. In his appeal, he called on the president of Russia to respect freedom of expression.

- I perform on behalf of, and in the defense of these Russian artists, who are unable to speak freely, make objective observations of the world and express them in their works. As an artist who strongly oppose the manipulation and deception of the public by the Russian authorities, I send this picture to the public in order to let not only President Putin, but the rest of the world know how we - the people of culture - perceive such activities, said Artur Kalinski.

In his painting Kalinski presents a vision of the potential effects of imperialist policy, which may affect not only the fate of the...
