Rimel, born in 1984, Rouen, Francebut currently based in Amsterdam . A self taught artist from France who makes portraits that will draw you straight to a world of circus, pin-ups, skulls and above all, beauty. Rimel started taking photographs at the end of 2008. With her works she proves that black and white can be the perfect ingredient for countless breathtaking works of art.

She started taking pictures just three years ago. The majority of those are self-portrait ones because she finds it easier to express herself this way. She wanted to make her photos look like drawings or paintings and while looking though her work you will see that she made it happen. Black and white pictures characterize her style and attitude. She gets inspired by history, souvenirs and childhood.



Born in 1986, Aleah Chapin grew up on an island north of Seattle. After receiving her BFA from Cornish College of the Arts in 2009 she moved to NYC to complete her MFA. Since then, Aleah attended a residency at the Leipzig International Art Programme in Germany and in the fall of 2013 she will be a Fellow at the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire. Aleah has been the recipient of several awards including the Posey Foundation Scholarship and the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant. Most recently she won first place in the BP Portrait Award Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London. She has exhibited her work in the US, the Netherlands, Germany and the UK. Though Aleah currently lives and works in New York City, the place and people of her childhood are the subjects of her work. It is through this personal lens that she aims to discover stories that are beyond her own experience
