The elaborate self portraits of Peruvian artist Cecilia Paredes: her exposed skin painted, wearing robes that mimic the ornamental fabric backdrops into which she blends.

Italian photographer Manuel Cosentino found a tiny house on a featureless hill and returned to capture images of the changing sky and light behind it – shooting from the exact same location over two years.
Currently exhibiting at the Klompching Gallery in New York until August 10th, the photos are mounted on a wall behind a book of reproductions of the white sky image – inviting viewers to draw their own versions of what might appear behind the little house. Cosentino sez:
The first photograph starts the series with a Big-Bang-like explosion and sets everything into motion, the last is a new beginning – it represents that piece of “carte blanche” that we are all given with our lives. By drawing in the book anyone is at the same time breathing life into it, keeping it alive page after page, and is also responsible for his or her contribution within a wider context.
