The Yellow River series are the first photos by Zhang Kechun we’ve seen, and they’re a pretty good introduction. The photos follow the river from a prosperous water system to a dried up stretch of land. Although the sentiment is sobering, the images somehow manage to be incredibly peaceful.
Nathan Menglesis’s work is terrifying, nightmarish and at times pretty gross. So it goes without saying it’s the most awesome thing we’ve found on the Internet this year. But don’t get too worked up, this isn’t quite the gore-fest we’re letting on, but rather just some pretty interesting mixed media work from a new artist. Get on the fan train early, and tell everyone you liked him before it was cool.

In his words, his Acid Drops project aims to, “psychedelically capture the individual styles of influential skateboarders”. We couldn’t put it better ourselves.
