Postcards for Ants
An ongoing painting project by Cape Town artist Lorraine Loots who has been creating a miniature painting every single day since January 1, 2013.
For his ‘Spring-Autumn' project, photographer Qozop explored the role of clothes in society from different Asian nations through a clever and playful juxtaposition of two generations.
"Basically, this idea for Spring-Autumn came about from a notion that though Asia has become westernized to a large degree, it is still possible to witness its traditions and cultures."
"And as an Asian society, our cultural beliefs are often reflected in our dressing. Fashion (other than wrinkles) is one of the best tell tales of how old a person is, or what generation they hail from."
"Many of us grow up with the vague notion that as we get older, our wardrobe should be changing right there along with us. We’re taught to ‘dress our age,’ without knowing exactly what this even means."
"It was easy to get the kids to agree to be photographed; the older folks required a little coaxing but once they have been photographed, they were often curious and amused to see themselves in their son’s or grandson’s attire - some were so comfortable in their new getup that they joked that they wanted to remain in that attire for the rest of the day!"

Photographer Klaus Pichler takes pictures of Australian Cosplayers in their homes against the backdrop of their everyday lives. He says that the unknown identities and mundane activities give this project a very mysterious vibe.

We had an election yesterday here in Sweden. As a result we will have a new Prime Minister in a couple of weeks. I drew him, Stefan Löfven, taking a selfie outside Riksdagshuset in Stockholm. Wearing a golden shirt and a tiara. Because he’s a winner. And that’s how winners dress.
