Ricky Woodside and Rhys Ellis

The White Horses collection by Rhys Ellis seen on these pages emerged from the inescapable environmental issue concerning our planet’s oceans and aims to stimulate an empowering movement for change.
Inspired by the rapid deterioration and bleaching of the coral reefs caused by climate change, White Horses studies the journey in which the natural vibrancy of the underwater world becomes depleted by our own hands.
The irresponsible destruction of the oceans makes a huge impact on the many species that rely on the coral reefs’ eco systems, inevitably leading to the demise of our precious marine life.

Rhys Ellis donates a portion of his income from his design wear to support the Big Blue Ocean Clean Up and he is also a member of the Fair Wear Foundation.

Q: Tell us about your art and what inspired you to produce imagery about futuristic, science fiction or fantasy themes.

Q: Is there anyone who has strongly influenced your style or direction in art? Or is there any artist past or present who inspires your art in any way whom you wish to mention?

Interview with the Artist R.L. Marlett


Q: Tell us about your art and what inspired you to photograph a dystopian future?

A: I am a fan of the Mad Max / Post Apocalyptic / Dystopian genre. The series of images displayed here were taken at the Wasteland Weekend 2018 event in the Mojave Desert. What inspired me to shoot this event is the resourcefulness, creativity, and originality on display. What I found, that I was not looking for, was some hidden humanity in the candids I shot.

Q: Tell us about Wasteland Weekend, is this an annual event?

A: Wasteland Weekend started as an informal gathering of fans, in the desert, of the Mad Max series of films.

Interview with the Artist Ashley Joncas

Q: Tell us about your art and what inspired you to produce imagery about futuristic, science fiction or fantasy themes.

A: Much of my art is inspired by my constant need to visually escape reality, so I use a lot of futuristic elements that don’t exist to infiltrate the images I create. I’m constantly fascinated by technology, it’s relationship with us, and how to use it in alternative ways.

Nina Pak Talks About The Future

Title: Utopia
Photography and post editing by Nina Pak

I don’t like to think of our future in terms of entropy, of course everything comes to an end eventually, I’d just like to see it thrive first, truly blossom into something wonderful, a tangible utopia, not just a figment of our hopeful dreams.
Although I have explored the genre of the dystopian Steampunk fashion for several editorials in the past, for this FUTURISTE theme in Miroir I wanted something with more of a flavor of optimism rather than ruin.
I grew up with the Jetsons, and then Star Trek and Star Wars, I had a different idea in my mind for what my future would be and it looks nothing like what we’ve got.
