Songsforever describes herself as a journalist, creative writer, and fractal freak extraordinaire. She loves knitting, science fiction, steampunk. Anything weird, odd, strange, and random are right up her alley. Her gallery of colorful fractals is quite impressive. Fractals are basically detailed patterns that repeats itself. They’re psychedelic, to say the least and a breath of fresh air from the usual photos and paintings.
Florent Courty is another young, up-and-coming photographer who takes amazing pictures considering she’s only 19 years old and largely self-taught. A few more years down the road she’ll definitely be someone to contend with in the world of photography.

Eddy L. strives to capture the beauty that most people ignore. To some, a rose may just be a thorny bush, but to him, it’s a repository of beauty. He loves taking long walks and she never goes anywhere without his camera. Who knows what magical moment he might capture on those rambling walks? His wonderfully dramatic close-ups of flowers which shows off their delicate hues. Interestingly, having gone through all the trouble of putting his name on his work, he didn’t make it very legible. So Eddy L., he’ll always be to me.
We’re on the list!

Lodz’s art isn’t your garden variety graffiti, its a fine example of the newly emerging species of creative outlet known as street art.
