Cody Cobb codycobb.com

“Monuments” is an ongoing project documenting the Earth’s surface and atmosphere as it folds, condenses and erodes. These observations were made while roaming the landscapes of the American West in search of seemingly untouched nature.


With careful composition and natural light, these Earthly formations appear to exist in an alternate and mysterious dimension.

Preview: Elsewhere Let’s start with this: it feels good to go. To be moving. I get restless after a time, when everything starts adding up. It feels good to say a dramatic goodbye, one of those “I wish I didn’t have to leave” kinds with passionate kisses and tears choked back, but it feels just as good to say “fuck this” and walk out without looking back. Some people, mostly the ones left behind, think it’s the coward’s way out, because you don’t stick around to see things through. But moving around means two things: you’re leaving one thing behind and you’re going towards something else. When I go to Austin, I’m surrounded by the ashes of people that I’ve left for good or the embers of people that I’m returning to. There’s music and traffic I land for a couple of nights

in the air, and the smell of beer wafts up from the street.

at J’s and replay our history in my head. I lay my head on his chest and say that I love him, because that’s what I know I’m supposed to feel after we sleep together. And I’m supposed to feel it so much that I actually do feel it, even though he’s done nothing but say stupid and angry things, smoke a lot of dope and ask me for a blowjob. The inequality of genders is so obvious these days I have to laugh instead of cry, because I know tomorrow night he’ll have some other girl in his bed, either cooking him dinner and saying Don’t worry, I don’t even want a relationship, I’m not that kind of girl, or lying the same romantic lie

and I know it’s not, but I’m shaking anyway. It’s about a lifetime of disillusionment consummated in twenty minutes of fatigued sex, one dose at a time.

Let me tell you a lesson hard learned: no matter how far you travel, you can’t escape yourself. You can try to forget all the things you’ve done, and all the things that that have been done to you, but it’ll catch up to you eventually… everything does, whether you thought it meant a damn or not. The one thing you take along with you everywhere is yourself. But sometimes, the urge to go is so strong that all those things, those hidden memories and suitcases of sadness you carry around with you -- they’re just irrelevant details. In the movement, you can forget. Yeah, it’s temporary, but so is everything. It just means is that you have to keep moving.

Daniek van Doorn daniekvandoorn.com

Daniek’s goal is to fill people’s hearts with the pride and joy just as a nation’s flag or national anthem would do. This is a collection of protest and battle towards victory and freedom. This goal and all the people who fight to achieve it are very important for her. She hopes that her collection can ignite that passion in the viewers’ hearts! This collection was based on the struggle for independence of the Catalan people. She has translated this into ‘victory’, shown in the prints as pennants and using the colours red and yellow extensively.
