with Alex Dvorak
For over two years I’ve had the privilege of watching Alex Dvorak work her ass off, make goals and surpass them, hit road bumps and keep pushing. Most importantly, I’ve had the benefit of watching Alex enjoy the struggle while making something of herself. She makes me proud, and she deserves to be recognized not only when she hits new milestones in her career, but also in her life.
Alex has kept this part of her life quite private, but she now began to open up as a cancer survivor, and share her experience to the world. She is giving her time to work with organizations and to spread love and light. Read More
LA based photographer Christine Bartolucci asked some questions to our iPhone obsessed generation: Do you remember film? Do you remember dropping your film at a lab and waiting for the images to be developed? Do you remember a time without instant gratification?
Yes, might seem like millennial, hipster speak, but it’s actually a lot more than that. It’s seeking a process. It’s seeking a split-second to stop and think about the art behind a shutter click, and it’s actually asking for photo-takers to wait for the right moment and capturing what you see through your lens. With these questions and this progression of realizations, Christine grabbed an Olympus 150 35mm film camera, and sent it away on vacation with a bunch of strangers to see what they could capture as they travel the world with this “new” technology in their hands, and with the hope of capturing their moments and memories in one shot, one moment.

A Student Showcases from R Culture: Mixtape Blue
Photographers in New York City are a-plenty—from tourists aiming at the tall buildings to the inspired-semi-pro who just enjoy shooting up the city. And, of course, there are the true professionals who chose the most beautiful city in the world as their home.
Sometimes, within the 35mm and DSLRs, you find some green gems. It is truly incredible how these gems can be so young in age and in experience, yet blow your mind with their composition and passion. This is the story of four high school students and their journey growing up photographers in their city:
Sydnie L. Hyams, 16 years old, 10th Grade
Canon Rebel T4I & Vivitar 35mm.
“I have been doing photography for fun for about six years, but I’ve been doing it seriously for three. Photography is a way to capture moments. A box of film is full of potential memories, and I like to capture those. Certain songs can bring back memories, and I would like my photos to do the same. Some photographers I like include Petra Collins, Annie Leibovitz circa 1970 and Lauren Greenfield. My favorite thing to photograph is people.”
“I do photography for myself.” – Sydnie
Look to the monsters around you to fuel your creativity.
The monsters can surround you or hide deep inside. They can be the height of the tallest mountain or the little bug that keeps buzzing by your ear, keeping you awake. The monsters can be in your closet at night on just in your head, the wild imagination that keeps you uncomfortable in the dark. At the end of the day, monsters are anywhere and everywhere, they are big and small, they are physical and metaphorical, but what you have to remember is that the monsters are around to keep you in constant fear, to halt you in your tracks, but they should never keep you from doing what you need to do.
I left Los Angeles on January 1, 2014. This was a fearful time, as it was a step away from comfort, but more importantly, it was a step towards a dream I should have been following long ago. Hell, comfort can be the worst monster out there, but that’s a tale for another page. Read More
