Digdown Gallery

There's a cinematic quality to the photographs by Digdown Gallery that make them feel as if they are stills taken from a film. Looking at the boy at the end of the diving board in The Pool we can't help but wonder what his story is. These photos draw the viewer in and invite them to try to understand more about what they are trying to say.

Futorowoman Fotographie

Polaroid film may be a dying format but there are plenty of photographers doing their bit to keep the art of Polaroid photography alive. Futorowoman is one of those. She combines the faded, vintage feel that Polaroid film gives with subjects such as Blythe dolls, the American Southwest and city life to present a stunning collection that provides a compelling case for the rejuvenation of the Polaroid as a popular film format.

Rocky Top Studio

Today was the first 'proper' day of winter here- I woke up to a thick layer of frost covering every surface and a fine mist in the air. It reminded me of Alison Trentelman's photographs, many of which were taken in the middle of winter when that cold mist fills the air and turns everything pale.

Saturday Selection: The Wizard of Oz

Every Saturday I bring you a selection of photos that are united by a common theme. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the release of The Wizard of Oz and to celebrate I have a collection of photographs that make me think of Dorothy and co.

Tina Crespo

There is a stark quality to Tina Crespo's photographs that gives them the feeling of a crisp, winter morning. Her use of cool shades of blue make the pieces seem fresh and remind me of that wonderful feeling when the cold air hits you and fills your lungs with a clean, full sensation.

Predominantly pastel colours mixed with the occasional flash of bright red or pink make up the majority of JenniPenni's work, creating beautiful portraits and dreamy scenes.
