SCAD alum and former PDN staffer, Mark Rubenstein, migrated from New York to L.A. in 2009, continuing his series of fine-art photography based on post-adolescent adults. Most recently, his work has gained buzz through art blogs and Marc Jacobs’ Bookmarc (where he collaborated on a post card series). “Each image is unsettling and that’s exactly what I want,” Rubenstein says. “I draw heavily on nostalgia and movies from when I was growing up. Katsuhiro Otomo and Terrence Malick are my biggest influences.” Rubenstein takes his time, only releasing a few images per year when he feels inspired, but his latest work “The Shape of Things to Come,” shows increasing maturity.

Harley Victoria Weir is a 22-year-old fine art graduate of Central Saint Martins, and a regular contributor to Vice Magazine and Citizen K.
This shoot aptly named “Cat Power” is an editorial spread for TEST Magazine. Harley explains, “we ended up using two of the neighbor’s cats who were lovely but very shy and spent the entire shoot hidden under the sofa. So we ended up with very little presence of cats in the shoot but I suppose too much of a good thing is bad anyway.” See more of Weir’s work here and check our more of the spread at TEST Magazine.

These images are part of a larger fine art series which Maybin has made of herself and her daughter combined as one. This particular series is photographed at night while Maybin’s daughter is asleep; these photographs of her daughter’s head and her own body are combined to make a chimera of persons. This discussion surrounds the topic of identity as a woman, mother and daughter.
