Urban irregularities

There’s always a bit of humor in the work of Robert Rickhoff. What at first seems like normal, even mundane pictures of the world, turn out to be fun juxtapositions of everyday objects – objects he’s digitally moved to places highly impractical for actual use. Urinals hang suspended on toilet walls, only accessible by a climbing wall; suburban streets are built with high speed jumps; and a volleyball court is placed in the center of a divided highway.

Experimental photography by Christoffer Relander

“As a photographer I am captivated to explore the world through a filter. Life can be beautiful, but the imagined always absorbs me.
Photography to me is a way to express and stimulate my imagination. Nature is simply the world. With alternative and experimental camera techniques I am able to create art that otherwise would only be possible through painting or digital manipulation in an external software. My goal as an artist is to be true to who I am, and aim to create art that will stay around for its good cause. (more…)

Depictions of a sexual nature are as old as civilization with depictions such as the Venus figurines existing since prehistoric times. Now days more than 70% of men from 18 to 34 visit one, more or less pornographic site in an average month. According to compiled numbers from respected news and research organizations, every second $3,075.64 is being spent on pornography. Every second 28,258 internet users are viewing pornography.

“Blue is a colour, the perception of which is evoked by light having a spectrum dominated by energy with a wavelength of roughly 440–490 nm and on the frequency ~680–610 THz. It is considered one of the additive primary colours. On the HSV Colour Wheel, the complement of blue is yellow; that is, a colour corresponding to an equal mixture of red and green light. On a colour wheel based on traditional colour theory (RYB) where blue was considered a primary colour, its complementary colour is considered to be orange (based on the Munsell colour wheel).The English language commonly uses “blue” to refer to any colour from navy blue to cyan. The word itself is derived from the Old French word bleu.
In English, blue often represents the human emotion of sadness, for example, “He was feeling blue”. In German, on the other hand, to be “blue” (blau sein) is to be drunk. This derives from the ancient use of urine (which is produced copiously by the human body after drinking alcohol) in dyeing cloth blue with woad or indigo. It may also be in relation to rain, which is usually regarded as a trigger of depressive emotions. (more…)
