Christopher Rimmer is a Melbourne-based fine art photographer who’s forthcoming exhibition, Sign of Life, is a visual examination of the tragedy of two abandoned towns slowly being buried by the sands. The images were shot on location in the diamond mining towns of Elizabeth Bay and Kolmanskop in South Western Namibia. Local institutions such as the hospital, ballroom, power station, theatre, casino, ice factory and the first x-ray-station in the Western Hemisphere are all shown in a surreal and almost unrecognisable state.
Hedi Xandt is a Hamburg-based multidisciplinary designer with a fresh perspective on graphic art. He recently deconstructed a series of luxury perfume bottles for TUSH Magazine, reducing them to a single line drawing shown with key ingredients in their natural state.
Italian photographer Chiara Goia travelled to Dong Cheng, a small village in China where artists are responsible for producing imitations of renowned classical sculptures. I ache for the irony, the beauty and the bizarre nature of these images.

Dearest Yellowtracers, Can you believe we’ve almost reached the end of another amazing year together? What more could I possibly say that I haven’t already? You know I totally love you guys, right? By now it should be bleeding obvious. I heard a little saying the other day which made me laugh and I wanted to share it with you guys. “Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes”…
