Finding a Creative Complement with @wadejeffree and @letasobierajski

To see more imaginative portraits from Leta and Wade, follow @letasobierajski and @wadejeffree on Instagram.

“Usually we send each other ideas, sketches and imagery throughout the week leading up to our shoot,” says Leta Sobierajski (@letasobierajski), who collaborates with partner Wade Jeffree (@wadejeffree) on Complements, a weekly series of unconventional portraits. “We’re inspired both by hilarious couple photography from the Internet and beautiful imagery from couples in history.”

Wade, a graphic designer, and Leta, an art director, shoot the photos in their Brooklyn apartment. “We wanted to collaborate,” explains Wade, “but the opportunity hadn’t arisen.” So the duo decided to explore their creativity—and relationship—through collaborative portraits. “The portraiture often becomes surreal, funny and romantic,” says Leta, “and it helps depict our personalities and the way we think together.”

Anna Ladd’s Photographs of Things She’s Said Online But Not Outloud

Photographer Anna Ladd’s poignant series, Things I Told the Internet, But Didn’t Tell My Mom, examines the way that blogging has impacted her life. The Philadelphia-based artist has been sharing her thoughts and feelings via this medium for the past six years, and it’s changed her conception of privacy. Intimate and revealing admissions are made to seemingly countless anonymous people on the web, but has never been talked about in person.

Spinning Creatures from Dreams into Felted Reality with @x03

To see more of Zoë’s needle-felted creations come to life, follow @x03 on Instagram.

“I have an extremely vivid dream life,” explains New York artist Zoë Williams (@x03), a New Orleans native who was uprooted by Hurricane Katrina. It was “during this strange rudderless period” following her displacement that a rabbit spirit came to her in a dream. “My first felt sculptures were all of that rabbit,” she says. As her dreams and artistic creations converged, Zoë has come to see her felted creatures, brought to life through Instagram, as “the expression of my unconscious.”

“At first, I made my creatures simply to honor the animals I dreamed about,” says Zoë of her felted creations. “But the dreams changed as my work evolved, and now I think they are one and the same.”

“Needle felting is a slow, laborious process,” explains Zoë. “It’s fun to give people a peek into the stages a piece goes through on its journey to completion.” The ability to cultivate a deeper appreciation for her work, however, is what Zoë values most. “Ultimately, I think artwork is best experienced in person, but it’s a special thrill to meet someone at an opening who follows my work on Instagram and has watched the pieces come to life.”
