At times, silence means much more than words, and there is much more mood, warmth and emotion in black and white than in a whole palette of bright colors. Georgian artist Guram Dolenjashvili fully felt and understood this truth.

“Life is like a box of chocolates: you never know what filling you will get” - this phrase from the movie “Forest Gump” has become a catch phrase for a long time. And even if we are not talking about a chocolate assortment, but about a completely "understandable" bar of this delicacy, then there is often something to be surprised at. At least advertising posters
Despite the Italian pseudonym, the artist Cornacchia (Cornacci) lives and works very close, in Russia. Her work combines both photography and computer graphics, since most of Kornacci's works are talented collages from her own sources. True, not everyone will be able to determine where is the collage, and where is pure graphics. But is this the main thing?
Black and white photography is good. Interesting graphic solutions are good too. Both together are wonderful. Chinese graphics studio 96k, working with Pepsi, SonyEricsson, Microsoft and many others, allows you to verify this, and not only this
To this day, Bulgakov's beloved novel The Master and Margarita still makes an indelible impression not only on readers, but also on directors, screenwriters and, of course, on - photographers.

"Seven Seas" is the Japanese translation of the name of the artist Nanami Cowdroy, who was born, lives and works in Sydney, Australia. Possessing both Asian and European roots, the girl grew up among the close intertwining of these two cultures, which, according to her, subsequently greatly affected the nature of her work. The black and white graphics, which the young artist creates with inspiration, are filled with the same close interweaving of images, among which in a special place - fish, people, plants and phi
