“Lake” by Kathy Lo for Oyster Magazine

I’ve always been terrified of lakes. I’m not sure if it’s from being scarred the first time I saw “Friday the 13th”, or if it’s the fact that weird creatures live there, but nonetheless it’s there. It seems that as I stumble upon a new source of visual stimuli (this one happens to be from…

“Afternoon Sister” by Caroline Mackintosh for Oyster Magazine

I originally had another post scheduled for today. Then I saw this amazing story by South African based photographer, Caroline Mackintosh that completely rocked my world. It does well to assume that the photographer worships the world of the soft focus 1970s. You may recognize a similar style in Sophia Coppola’s film work, particularly “The…

“Yo Staz Yo” by Gavriel Maynard for Oyster Magazine
