Emotionless

Why I chose this photo: There’s truth in the masked man or woman… War forces the ones affected to wear a mask, hiding what makes them vulnerable–fearful of what they may take from them next. Well depicted here with strong emote. Loved this photo!

war_by_hunterkiller

Why I chose this photo: He claims he only had two hours to sketch this but, man oh man does emotion seep out. If this is a rough draft, I’d love to see what he can do with this after a few revisions! Seriously though, it’s raw and thus perfect. I see the disaster and pain of a war torn city.

prisoner_of_my_own_by_shimoda7

Why I chose this photo: The artist (a drawing of a celebrity’s tattoo) depicts with his image what all authors feel when told to confine their work to a specific standard. Yes, it’s like a ball and chain while you’re attempting to create.

About the Artist:
Ciril

Ciril Jazbec
Artist | Professional | Photography
Slovenia
Ciril Jazbec (1987) was born in Slovenia, which is where he first took up photography and visual storytelling. His desire to expand his horizons led him to London where he studied MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the London College of Communication. He is drawn towards stories that reach out and touch you, making you stop, think and take action in the midst of our ever-changing world.

Moved by the story of the disappearing islands of Kiribati, Ciril had endeavored to capture the essence of the place whilst that remains possible. Through encounters with the locals, activists and the President, Ciril addresses environmental issues and offers a testament to the spirit of the people.

Ciril is currently based in London, UK.

Why I Chose this Photo: His face says it all. A reality crushed, a new existence… No wonder this artist received an honorable mention with Daily Deviation Spot.
Journey Into Warby jevinart

Journey_Into_War_by_jevinart
A Message from the Artist:
The date is December 11, 1969. A young soldier, fresh out of boot camp, takes his first steps down from a chopper and into the jungles of Vietnam. At that very moment, the innocence of youth is stripped away forever, replaced with the life-and-death struggle of instantaneous manhood. Amid the magenta-colored fog of war, our hero assesses his new predicament, and the dangerous journey ahead of him. He pauses for a moment as the true realization hits him with brutal force – and everything familiar he has known throughout his life disappears on the wind; fading like the whir of rotors from the departing choppers, leaving with their cargo of wounded and fallen comrades…

war_paint_by_sugarpoultry-d4m4g45
Why I Chose This Photo: I know it’s not human but this wolf bares his heart just as if he depicted a human getting ready for a battle. He’s here, sitting, fighting within himself to erase his fears and prepare for what needs to get done. There is determination but also acknowledgement. Only a true artist could capture so much in just two small yellow eyes…

Casualties of War by strikenz

Casulties_of_War_by_strikenz
Why I Chose This Photo: Okay, maybe it’s just a chipped chess piece lying on it’s side… It’s not, it’s so much more than that. Don’t you feel the emotion portrayed here? It tells a story. A seriously well captured shot.

Artist of the Month

Why I Chose This Photo: There is such beauty captured here and yet, look closely and you see nothing but suffering and great loss — whether it be life or a way of life or even a reality so broken it’s become a massive pile of broken (rubble).
