The Feminine Side of American Football

Football is never usually thought of as a feminine sport, quite the opposite in fact. But German artist Asja Jung has taken these manly athletes and added colorful femininity to their form. With colorful swirls and designs, she tries to show the players as a whole person, not just a rough exterior. Based in NYC, Jung is primarily an artist, with some tour guide and modeling gigs on the side. Her works have been on display in the VIP section of the Jets Stadium and in the National Art Museum of Sports!

New York City From A Toddler’s Point of View

You can only see so many postcard-esque shots of Times Square and Rockefeller Center before it feels like you have a good idea about what it’s like to be there. But what do these iconic locations look like from a baby’s perspective? With a Go-Pro behind his son’s back as he strolled through New York City, Ecuadorian photographer Diego Acosta López captured New York from an angle that many have experienced, but few can actually remember. The pictures document little Ignacio’s first trip to NYC to visit his daddy, who is studying at SVA (School of Visual Arts). Aside from serving to remind Ignacio of a trip he will likely forget, the photo shoot also counted towards a final project for one of his dad’s photography classes.
