One of the most amazing things about instagram is that everyone can have a platform and is not dependent of a gallery, institution or publication to display their work. You can just showcase it to the world on your own, a form of DIY, empowerment on your fingertips.

A few months ago I stumbled upon the simple, yet incredibly striking collages by Barbara Alves, a graphic designer based in Portugal. Her work reminded me a lot of that of the genius that is John Stezaker. I discovered Barbara’s account because she used a couple of Love Aesthetics images (see first and second collages), I was super thrilled to see her point of view and how she transforms something existing into a completely new, strong composition.

    I really love the design and layout of your blog. Feel free to check us out sometime. We just posted a new tutorial on how to recreate Lauren Conrad’s deer costume using google glass.
