#henryscocepts by Alex Neary and Henry
I am a nanny to the world’s coolest kid, Henry. I have been looking after him for about a year and a half and for that entire time he has had to pose for my camera. One day he turned to me and said, ‘Alec, take a photo of me like this.’ The pose he chose was…interesting. He then declared that he wanted to take a photo of me doing the same pose.
It was right then and there a lightbulb went off and ‘Henry’s Concepts’ was born. Each of these photos is strictly Henry’s idea. He chooses the location and the pose. I take the photo of him and then he takes the photo of me. Henry is two and a half.

My White Trash Family by Kim Alsbrooks
Sparked by a discussion held her women’s history professor friend, My White Trash Family is a series by American artist Kim Alsbrooks portraying the historical biases and fallacies of the infamous people painted on ivory.
The trash is found flat, on the street. One cannot flatten the trash. It just doesn’t work. It must be found so that there are no wrinkles in the middle and the graphic should be well centered. Then the portraits are found that are complimentary to the particular trash. Generally I depict miniature portraits from the watercolor on ivory era (17th-18th century more or less). The trash is gessoed in the oval shape, image drawn in graphite, painted in oils and varnished.
