These are images from Private Moon, an ongoing series created by physician-turned-artist Leonid Tishkov. The series, which has been growing for almost a decade, depicts a glowing crescent moon that wanders the surface of the earth forming relationships with people.

I was walking down a cobblestone street in New York City one night when a strange ghostly sculpture in a shop window caught my eye. I ambled over and stood in front of the glass beholding a giant creature made of cords and a gaping mouth. It was an arresting image, one that humored as much as terrified. Later, I found out it was the work of artist Doug Johnston, and this eerily beautiful sculpture barely scratched his polymathic, multi-hyphenate artistic surface.
What do you get when you mix teenage starlets and pop sensations with America’s most enigmatic independent filmmaker? The answer is Spring Breakers, the neon-blazing, experiential, psychedelic pastiche that is Harmony Korine’s most commercially successful film yet. Comprised as a symphony of character, narrative, and social-political layers, Spring Breakers is a maze through an ultra-fun then frenzied trip for four freshmen that will stop at nothing to get to Daytona Beach in time for spring break.
