I recently attended a party at Project One Gallery in San Francisco where René Garcia Jr.’s art is displayed. I found myself much more captured by his work than the party itself.

After recently featuring Joey L’s work on YM&C, we were able to get an exclusive interview with him about his photographic adventures and his creative process.

I couldn’t think of better time to share Julie de Waroquier’s work. Julie is a young (she’s only 23!) talented photographer, whose story is very inspiring: she is a self taught artist who started “quite randomly”, and has just published her first book: Rêvalités/Dreamalities!

Read what she has to say about photography (and about magic and fairy tales too!), and see her stunning photos! Read More
