Svetlana Valueva
In the artist's own words: “My heroes are women. Some were born from my imagination; others are real persons. Every new face, so unique and so unrepeatable, originates in my imagination and then finds its way to the canvas”. This talented Russian artist creates some very beautiful and sensual art.

Heather Watts

Irene Sheri
I like this Ukrainian artist's use of bold colors, thin outlines and subject matter to create her wonderful paintings.

Natsuko Kogure
Natsuko Kogure's zany imagination shows though on her colorful paper Mache sea creature creations.  I think Alexander Calder were still alive that would like these creatures too.

Performing Arts Poster Collection (PCL)
This huge collection has over 2,000 performance art posters from LOC, including some early burlesque posters  like the one below.  Also, I think I'm in love with Nettie Barton! Who says the government is completely useless?  I know Rush Limbaugh ;-).  Rush should know too because he is about completely useless at they get!

Ground Zero 1945
Before 9/11, ground zero was associated with the nuclear terror that rained down on the cites of Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of WWII.  These images, drawn by the survivors, document the cataclysm that hopefully will never be repeated again.  Can someone please explain to me the difference between these acts of modern total war and acts of terrorism?

Zhang Hai-Er
His B&W Shanghai photos are remarkable.  His subjects seem to real people from China and not fashion models. Here is a set of his color photos, and here is a spread Zhang did for Time Magazine.
