Happy Halloween

This spooky photo series comes from horror movie stills mostly from the 60s and 70s, drawing inspiration from Dario Argento, Jess Franco, and Jean Rollin among other directors.   “It comes from the idea that good horror stills can often be more satisfying than the movies themselves because they can’t disappoint you with bad dialogue...

These Latinx artists dicuss subject and photographer

Interview between Blair Cannon and two up-and-coming young Latinx artists, lberto Vargas (A) and actor/artist Andrea Granera (B), discussing the roles of photographer and subject.  This improvised shoot is a project about how being a subject can be a performance in itself—it points to a confidence in us that we may not have in our everyday lives and...

La Femme Féroce: Is Copping An Attitude A Bad Thing?

This is an editorial inspired by empowered strong females with attitude. Why does attitude need to be associated with negative connotations?

Sophisticated Pervert

He has exquisitely poor taste. It’s not hard to spot a thinly-veiled affinity for the raunchy and lewd in the very way he carries himself. He’ll agree, subversion has its kicks, but indulgence is his top-priority. He’s probably the bastard son of Dorian Gray and John Waters. I’ve been calling him a “sophisticated pervert” —...

Introducing A New Kind Of Still Life Photography

I carefully arrange things and then capture the scene on film. By using photography, I aim to create an exaggeration of reality and compounding of fears. I ask myself: When does a dream become a nightmare? The still life, as a type of representation, nods toward product and food photography, but I try to complicate the...

India’s Gaze On Women: Priyanka Shah

XXX meaning sexually explicit or provocative content XXX meaning poison “punk” does not have to have a distorted fast pace guitar and angry vocals and pop does not have to be a mainstream thing....

SACROSANCT

I have always found solace in intimate moments alone or with a girlfriend in our rooms, it’s a strong part of what makes up me, and I wanted to display this closeness through my images. Most of my time as a teenager has been spent in scenes like this one. I wanted to portray something...

A Call For Diversity

All photos are self-portraits. I do the whole process by myself. The production, styling, makeup, set up of the space (usually my room), composition, and everything else. I get to learn from different fields and it lets me have more control over what I’m looking for. And then I ask my husband to press the...
