Incredible Images Show The Bond Between Endangered Gorillas And Their Caretakers

On July 24,2007 five members of the Rugendo family were cold-blooded murder on what to become the darkest hour at the Virunga’s park. This horrible act emphasizes the need to constantly protect Virunga’s gorillas and other wildlife. The park did some significant changes to its security after that event and in the next few years was able to protect the remaining Gorillas on site. The success of recent years is due to a dedicated ranger force that protects the gorillas while risking their own lives. These brave men are doing an amazing job and would not be possible at all if not for the help of individuals and organizations from around the world that have supported the park over the years. We thank these brave rangers by showing you these incredible pictures below and hopefully increasing awareness to this issue. If you want to help out and donate – do it here

“Nuestra niñez” de María Gallardo #Microrrelato

The Last Island

cuentosparasonreir

Nuestra niñez, ¿te acuerdas? El corro, el teje, la comba, los boliches, los cromos.
Nuestra niñez,  que lejos queda ya y que cercana la sientes cuando todavía descubres, en algún rincón de la isla, a otros niños jugando a lo mismo que un día jugaste tú. Nuestra niñez, ¿te acuerdas? Quizá la época más feliz de nuestras vidas y ahora que hemos crecido, aunque la echamos de menos,  nos alegramos de estar donde estamos, de habernos convertido en adultos sin perder la sonrisa.

Leonora Carrington Artist #Art #Surrealism

The Last Island

256ae422fd81515a7ebe2a967d07065e

Leonora Carrington

Born: April 6, 1917 – Clayton Green, Lancashire, England

Died: May 25, 2011 – Mexico City, Mexico

“I didn’t have time to be anyone’s muse… I was too busy rebelling against my family and learning to be an artist.”

Leonora Carrington Signature

Synopsis

Leonora Carrington established herself as both a key figure in the Surrealist movement and an artist of remarkable individuality. Her biography is colorful, including a romance with the older artist Max Ernst, an escape from the Nazis during World War II, mental illness, and expatriate life in Mexico. In her art, her dreamlike, often highly detailed compositions of fantastical creatures in otherworldly settings are based on an intensely personal symbolism. The artist herself preferred not to explain this private visual language to others. However, themes of metamorphosis and magic, as well as frequent whimsy, have given her art an enduring appeal.

Y las Meninas de Velázquez invadieron Madrid

Y las Meninas de Velázquez invadieron Madrid

Después de una larga ausencia sin entradas en mi blog, me gustaría retomar esta andadura con una obra clásica de la pintura española.. Recientemente terminó una brillante y espectacular exposición en Madrid. Las icónicas meninas que Velázquez retrató en el cuadro ‘La familia de Felipe IV’, tomaron las calles de Madrid interpretadas por diversos artistas, diseñadores y actores en lo que ha sido la primera “Meninas Madrid Gallery”, una galería de arte al aire libre. 80 meninas fabricadas en fibra de vidrio de 180 centímetros de alto, 160 de fondo y unos 30 kilos de peso.

Cada menina representa la idea de Madrid que tiene el artista que la ha intervenido. Los músicos Alejandro Sanz y Carlos Baute; los diseñadores Lorenzo Caprile, Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada y Vicky Martín Berrocal y el actor Jordi Mollá son algunas de las firmas que han plasmado su imagen de Madrid en una menina. También han participado en la creación de las meninas entidades sin ánimo de lucro como Fundación Aladina, Fundación Créate y Fundación Alenta. Una vez concluida la muestra, algunas de las meninas se subastarán y los beneficios se destinarán a estas organizaciones.

El Ayuntamiento de la capital ha ubicado 80 meninas en algunos de los lugares públicos más importantes de la ciudad y de mayor afluencia de visitantes.

Benjamin von Wong: “Mermaids hate plastic”

Benjamin von Wong: “Mermaids hate plastic”

Mermaid masterpiece! Photographer captures stunning images of mythical sea creatures to highlight impact plastic bottles have on the ocean

  • Canadian photographer Benjamin Von Wong has created an incredible series of environmental images
  • The artist pictured a mermaid inside a sea of 10,000 plastic bottles for his ‘mermaids hate plastic’ campaign 
  • By 2050 it’s estimated oceans will have more plastic than fish and he hopes to raise awareness for their health
  • By 2050 it’s estimated oceans will have more plastic than fish and he hopes to raise awareness for their health

By the year 2050 it’s estimated there will be more plastic than fish in the sea.

And so, in a determined effort to change that, one international photographer is using a mythical creature of the ocean to lead the fight.

Benjamin Von Wong from Quebec, Canada, hopes mermaids will help teach people about the damage being done to the earth by plastic bottles.

Currently in Australia, the photographer is spruiking a recent shoot showcasing the mythical creature drowning in a sea of plastic – proving how much ‘mermaids hate plastic’.

The end result was an incredible series of pictures, mixing the mermaid’s beauty with the stark reality of the toll plastic bottles are taking on the ocean.

Over three days the team set up a variety of dynamic photoshoots, carefully sorting bottles to create the mermaid masterpiece.
