The intensely saturated colors with extraordinary compositions, breathtaking sceneries, terrains with all sorts of turns and twists, and with lows and highs, fluffy clouds forming master strokes and magical lighting sending viewers into a fantasyland. Yes, I’m talking about Katarina Stefanović. Her landscape photography even has some sort of surreal effect that I find difficult to explain – it is hard to come out of it though. All her pictures in fact speak for themselves.
An engineer by day – Stefanović’s style is very creative and unique. Unlike most of the photographers these days, she still shoots on films – then scans images to image editing tools to play with shapes and colors.
I remain faithful to my old 35mm SLR
For Stefanović the world is often quite close to home, with many of her photographs taken in the nearby Pannonian Plain in Serbia.
You could live your whole life within a 50-kilometer ring around Belgrade (Serbia) and always find landscapes worth photographing
Here are some selected photographs from her portfolio:

Where did You Go?
You were here a minute ago.
Drinking soda and
Laughing out loud
And loving the wine
And making eyes
There were two of us then.
Now there is one.
We were having so much fun…
I only shut my eyes
For a minute

Some of the best ceramic works I came across lately. With 10 years of experience as ceramics technician at York College and having discovered her love of bone china and porcelain, Beccy Ridsdel is exploring new possibilities in mixed media ceramics.
I asked Beccy for her thoughts behind her work:
My art/craft work is a wry look at the way ceramics is perceived in the art world. Most people see working with mud as craft through and through, and this work is a dissection of the craft object in the form of domestic ware. The dissector is trying to find something else beneath the surface but every time they cut chintz, crochet and needlework spills out. This work was part of an installation, with a pile of uncut ceramics to the left of a large table, dissection in progress in the centre (complete with microscope, forceps, surgical needles and a kidney bowl). To the right was a pile of cut, tortured ceramics, all displaying their crafty interior.
Much of my work is decorative, made in response to my chosen themes. My desire work, the porcelain with knitten wool, is based on the theme of looking closely at the forgotten or ignored to find something magical. Barnacles are largely insignificant but when you look closely at them, you see that their lives revolve around desire – desire for food, procreation and light.
This brilliant piece of work, Syn Emergence, was conceived by Rich Bevan as part of Masters at the Bartlett School of Architecture – examining his associative relationship between sound, form and space.
The project is constructed according to a range of specific sonic and spatial scale rule sets (micro, component, meso and macro) which I designed as part of a cross-disciplinary notation/cartographic system.
For just $2.99, you can see the work of the world’s most brilliant and tortured artists.
