L enjeu 27x35cm. Oil on Canvas by Dominique Hoffer

At first, I am working as a professional pilot for various swiss and south african airlines (1972-1988). In 1988, I quit cockpits and dedicate myself to painting.

I like to figure strange, unusual, poetic situations and atmospheres, including these four elements, most of the time : Nature, characters, animals and objects. All elements are figured in a realistic manner, but in an unreal collection.

Alexandra Klever Mixed Emotions2 The Faces of Childhood by Alexandra Klever

German photographer Alexandra Klever does something wholly unconventional when she photographs kids who are NOT smiling. These are kids who are on the verge of tears, crying, just finished crying, about to throw a tantrum, and thinking of the pros and cons of throwing a tantrum. To highlight their expressions, she placed her subjects against a blank background and clothed them identically in a sleeveless white undershirt.
