First Responder Artists: These Designers, Artists and Photographers are Donating 100% of Proceeds to Sandy Recovery

There are so many stories of despair, struggle, hope and survival coming out of New York, New Jersey and the rest of the eastern seaboard impacted by hurricane Sandy it’s almost overwhelming to determine how to help. From what I’m hearing many places are slowly returning to life as normal and yet it’s clear that entire towns and neighborhoods have been completely devastated. Casey Neistat’s video of Staten Island is a sober reminder of this. Luckily there are kabillions of ways to help and in case you need just a little more incentive, these artists are making it easy for you by donating 100% of the proceeds generated from the purchase of prints and shirts to Sandy recovery.


New York Lights Out is a limited edition print of the blackout in lower Manhattan by NYC-based stencil artist Logan Hicks with 100% of proceeds being donated to the Red Cross.


Photographer Joel Zimmer has six great photos for sale over on Etsy with 100% of proceeds going to benefit victims.


Our friends over at 20×200 are offering this stunning, limited edition Blue Marble print shot by NASA’s GOES-13 satellite capturing Hurricane Sandy just off the eastern seaboard.


NYC-artist Molly Dilworth partnered with ArtWeLove to offer this limited edition print of her famous 2010 site-specific poured paint installation in Times Square, Cool Water, Hot Island. All proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross.


New York based artist Sebastian Errazuriz is offering this thoughtfully designed cotton shirt titled I Still Love NY through Grey Area. Photo courtesy Jordan Doner.

Photographer Taufik Sudjatnika’s Incredible Photos of Life in Indonesia

Photographer Taufik Sudjatnika has a wonderful series of photos over on 500px that capture the daily life of people living in rural Indonesia. Perhaps it’s the influence of growing up on farmland with an unreasonable hoard of ducks, chickens, and geese, but this is definitely my favorite.

The Geometric Food Art of Sakir Gökçebag

And I have trouble cutting a sandwich on a perfect diagonal for my son. From watermelons to green beans and apples to pomegranates, Turkish photographer Sakir Gökçebag slices common fruits and veggies to create striking geometric arrangements. To clarify: the photos you see here haven’t been digitally manipulated but are instead the result of meticulously precise cutting worthy of a surgeon. If you want to see more I strongly urge you to check out the installations and photography projects on his website. (via designboom)

From the Edge of Finland: New Photos by Mikko Lagerstedt

Photographer Mikko Lagerstedt first taught himself to use a camera in 2008 and has since fallen in love with the medium, having captured hundreds of dreamlike images of the Finnish landscape he calls home. This latest body of work called Edge was taken exclusively in Finland over the last few weeks and captures perfectly his somewhat unsettling approach to landscape photography that can be equal parts beautiful and just plain eerie, with strange figures lurking just on the horizon. You can follow Mikko’s photography on his blog, via Facebook and on Behance and prints are available on RedBubble.

The Hilarious Costumes of a Dog Named Trotter, Photos by Sonya Yu

The bar for fine art photographs of dogs in goofy costumes was set quite high in the 70s and 80s by photographer William Wegman and his Weimaraner companions Man Ray and Fay Ray, and while I suspect 20% of the entire industry of the internet is spent sharing adorable pet photos, it’s rare to see a single animal transcend the rest. Some worthy contenders recently have been Theron Humphrey and his dog Maddie, and also Seth Casteel’s underwater dogs. But a new pup has thrown down the gauntlet and her name is Trotter, a one-year-old French Bulldog lovingly captured by her owner, San Francisco photographer Sonya Yu who bills herself as a Professional Food Pornographer. You can follow Trotter’s dressy exploits on Yu’s Instagram feed but also check out her personal work which is outstanding. (via the fluffington post, which apparently, is a thing)
