Star Wars characters and superheroes' pictures would look a little bit different if they lived in the Renaissance era, photographer Sacha Goldberger (Facebook) illustrates in an exhibit. Photographer Sacha Goldberger put cosplayers on display at an exhibit in the Grand Palais in Paris from Nov. 13 to 16. Characters have a Renaissance spin in both the clothing and the ambiance in the photos.
Many of the cosplayers wear ruffs, a ruffled neckpiece men, women, and children wore separately during the latter half of the Renaissance. Dresses are floor-length, and each piece of clothing has detail work in embroidery and patterns, along with puffier sleeves, and many layers of fabric.
The work of Anwen Keeling is defined by feminine beauty. It is a world of soft tones, gentle curves and reposed thought. Light plays across a form as a liquid element caressing and defining its own trajectory insensible to pattern and mood. The woman herself: young; beautiful; supple is defined by form.

Few years ago I spotted an awesome photo (Carin Olsson) of Parisian cafe on Tumblr. This year I had a chance to visit Café Saint-Régis on Île Saint-Louis and admire its shabby chick interior designed by famous French decorator Richard Lafond. His studio completed about 50 projects of restaurant interiors in Paris, but still Saint-Regis is my favourite one hence I need to visit them all.
I want to say a little about this photo. It was made by Carin Olsson who spent 4 months in Paris studying language and apparently caught that "l'art de vivre" fever and moved back to the capital of France once she sorted her things in Stockholm on her short return. Today she is working in Paris as a photographer and occasional writer and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. You must check her portfolio online and on Flickr as well as follow her half-million fans Instagram
Added few photos of my own just to compare how Carin's ones are beautiful :)

"When it comes to sculpture, Gaspar Battha thinks big. His artworks address concepts including the limitations of the mind (envisioned as a physics-defying robotic bird), and humankind's relationship with tools (realized through custom-made screws and screwdrivers). Patterns of Harmony, his Master-project at UdK Berlin, takes this line of inquiry one step further, using a projection-mapped light box to explore the geometric nature of the universe." via A series of angled two-way mirrors forms the bulk of the lightbox, which Battha calls a "fractal of cubes." He maps and projects graphics into the back of the hexagonal sculpture, where "the light gets 'trapped inside' the object," bouncing off the reflective surfaces to form the 3D geometric shapes that viewers experience. Where the kaleidoscopic patterns are reminiscent of Kit Webster's Hypercube sculpture, Patterns of Harmony's geometry warps the mind in its efforts to communicate the mysteries of quantum physics.
"How do you make a spot that paints a portrait of the INTERNET? You use every crayon in the box, that's how! Teaming up with POSSIBLE, we also went through a dozen bricks of clay, spray paint, wood, lasers and a sprinkle of LOLcats. Onward Internet!" says animator Alex Mapar
Daliah Ammar is a nineteen-year-old Palestinian-American artist based in Chicago. I personally enjoy her colour palette and an ability to depict deep emotions using dramatic lights and shadows on each portrait. The purpose of Daliah’s work is to transcend the notion of the self and the physicality of paint, resonating from her own vulnerable and personal experiences – as a means of conveying life as it blooms and decays from within. Expressing that awareness of the self and reflecting to the viewer establishes a relationship between themselves and herself. Daliah’s works are confrontational, yet, intimate and personal – using the painted surface as a trope for the physical and psychological presence between the inner self and external viewer.
"Paris & NY, like many large cities, have a lot in common ; transport, infrastructure, national monuments. I wanted to explore not only these comparisons but also the differences, in order to expose the beauty and individuality of each. What you cannot deny is the vibrancy and explosion of character each city has and I thought split-screen with timelapse would be a good way to help convey this." says director Franck Matellini.
"New York-based photographer Gail Albert Halaban first began peering into people's windows many years ago, and her fascination with the public versus the private in urban life inspired a voyeuristic photo project and then a book, Out My Window, in fall 2012. It caught the eye of Cathy Remy, photo editor for Le Monde's M magazine, who invited Halaban to take her show on the road to Paris a few weeks later. The initial process went the same in Europe as it did in New York, with a few exceptions: Remy and Halaban found participants through Facebook, friends of friends, and word of mouth, and all gave permission in advance, though reactions toward the nature of the shoot were a bit polarizing."
