Via Highlight of my day.
Lilya Corneli's antiqued and distressed photographs and portraits of women, thickly textured like paintings, are like smoky fragments of another time.
I love Christina Ceppas's work. A commercial photographer with big-name corporate clients, she has a style that's fresh, clean, and beautiful. Her portfolio is divided into conceptual, fashion, lifestyle, and portrait galleries, and it's the first that holds the most gems, at least to my eye.
Desiree Dolron gets more attention for her creative artwork, particularly the evocative "Xteriors" series, than her larger body of documentary work -- in truth, everything she does is great, but those corridors of austere young women, like the sisterhood of some surreal nunnery, are undeniably haunting.
Zena Holloway is a talented underwater photographer who does primarily commercial work, in addition to an underwater portrait studio for babies. Beautiful, fluid shots in a quintessentially alien and challenging environment.
Chris Anthony is a commercial and private photographer whose style is firmly entrenched in the dark, romantic gothic camp. Don't miss his excellent wide-format "Victims and Avengers" series.
Mitya Kushelevich has some nice fashion photography as well as some portraits, divided into a number of series such as "City Jungle" and "Duality".
