When I was younger I had a mask of a monkey's face that I loved so much I wore it to bed on more than one occasion. Pamela Klaffke gives that love of animal masks a surreal edge in her portraits of masked people and children. She also shoots exclusively with expired film and analogue film which gives her photos (none of which have been digitally altered) a feeling of something you might find in an old relative's house, their dirty little secret finally revealed.

Etsy seller Lauri is inspired by a love of spring flowers and all things vintage. Her photos evoke a soft, feminine, romantic feel and the muted colours and mellow lighting are reminiscent of lazy spring and summer days spent lounging under a blossoming tree.

Pink Paradise 8x10 Fine Art Polaroid Photograph
I recently got back from a trip to Los Angeles with my husband. While we were there, we took an overnight detour to Las Vegas. We got to see some beautiful landscapes whilst driving through the desert and the contrast between the lushness of the Pacific coast and the dry desert of Nevada was a breathtaking reminder of the variety of surroundings within the USA. NestaUsa (aka Tandie) is based in Phoenix, Arizona and her photos capture the spirit of that geographical diversity.
