Beach Noir: Amanda Friedman’s SoCal Nightscape January 12 2017

Santa Monica #1 by Amanda Friedman
Amanda Friedman’s badass body of work runs the gamut from editorial fashion images, to travel photography, to portraits of A-list celebrities, but it’s her straight-up spellbinding study of night landscapes from which we plucked her debut edition, Santa Monica #1. The series was sparked by an impromptu shoot on a rare foggy evening in upstate NY. Looking over the images that evolved from this spur-of-the-moment photo session, the artist was struck by their eerie magnetism. Her subsequent move to Los Angeles meant a chance to turn an experiment that started with a few rolls of film into an extended project.

Wanna Support the Arts? Peep These Cool Non-Profits + Orgs January 07 2017

Supported by Ky Anderson
Since Day 1, we’ve been art evangelists of the most enthusiastic variety. We’re fierce believers in the transformative power of art, that everyone—no matter their means—should have the opportunity to live with and experience art, and that artists should be able to make a living creating art. Every time you collect a 20x200 edition, a portion of the proceeds goes directly toward supporting our artists and their work. Even our Vintage + Space Editions play a part in allowing us to expand our artist roster and fund future projects.

We turn to the pros to help uphold art and make it more accessible to the public. There’s a lot of work to be done to protect existing arts programs, and to ensure future support for the arts is able to further broaden its reach. As inauguration date closes in on us, we’re eager to get extra involved in the effort to safeguard these organizations—especially those advocating for marginalized groups staring directly down the barrel of bigotry.

Earth to Collectors: New Sci-Fi Space Art Coming ‘Atcha January 05 2017

Cylinder Endcap AC75-1883 1920, a 20x200 Space Edition
We're launching into 2017 with a new Space Edition! To intro this striking sci-fi fantasy we reached out to someone with expertise in atypical (even outright futuristic) urban design: writer and teacher Fred Scharmen. His design research firm, the Working Group on Adaptive Systems, explores the utopian and speculative projects at the fringes of traditional architectural practice—from pillow forts to space colonies like the one envisioned in today's edition.

Valerie Roybal Makes Collage Magic (+ New Art!) January 03 2017

All the Past and Futures by Valerie Roybal
In All the Past and Futures, Valerie Roybal masterfully mixes plant life, honeybees, gemlike shapes, calligraphic script and a myriad of other mysterious objects, half-hidden in her diaphanous layers of collage. Some details in the image are in sharp focus, others a soft blur, but all the bits and pieces form carefully crafted phrases in this edition’s visual poetry.

The Last Days of Disco by Hollis Brown Thornton
Spoiler alert: New Year’s Eve is usually a little disappointing.

Feeling at Sea? Collect The Constellation of Hope December 20 2016

The Constellation of Hope by Alexander Beeching
It’s almost anchors aweigh for 2017, and we’re seeking out art that will sail us into the New Year with a little celestial perspective.

Today’s edition is the latest in Alexander Beeching’s Constellation series, a set of imaginary constellations the artist has dreamed up and drawn into existence. Each constellation is painstakingly rendered in pencil, something Beeching describes as “a test of patience”. We’ve featured three other striking prints from this project, but today’s feels perhaps the most prescient.

Capturing Haute Couture: New Art by Landon Nordeman December 13 2016

Untitled, Haute Couture (from the Out of Fashion series) by Landon Nordeman
Landon Nordeman has shot everything from the Westminster Kennel Club dog show to the RNC, but it’s his work photographing the inner workings of the fashion world—and the eccentric collective encircling it—that he’s perhaps best known for.

Since New York Magazine enlisted him to cover fashion week in 2013, Nordeman has been backstage and behind-the-scenes at an incredible spread of esteemed fashion events around the world. In October of this year, Damiani published Nordeman’s first monograph, Out of Fashion—a collection of some of the most compelling images that have emerged from his work shooting the fashion world. It was subsequently named one of Time’s Best Photobooks of 2016 (we’re not surprised, the book’s a real stunner). It’s from this winning tome we plucked today’s eye-catching edition release: Untitled, Haute Couture (from the Out of Fashion series).
