The Project ISM Artist prize
SILKE Date: 01/02/2015
Artist: SILKE
Folio: HALLUCINOGENE
A landslide vote this month makes Silke's pop-bam-wow folio, "Hallucinogene", our February Art Prize winner! Her intoxicatingly hot mess of color splashed onto our screens and made our hearts go "rawr", and her use of light, imagery and framing did the rest. Congratulations Silke!
LILLA_C Date: 01/02/2015
Artist: LILLA_C
Folio: MARJARIASANA
Lilla_C has been on top of the hit list since she debuted this past month, and there's a reason - the clean lines of her body not only inspire a peaceful atmosphere, but also, much like our own favorite yoga teachers, inspire us to excel in our own practices, whatever they may be. Congratulations, Lilla, on winning January's Art Prize!
DORIS_N Date: 01/01/2015
Artist: DORIS_N
Folio: TAKO_TOUCH
Doris_N blew us away at ISM this month with “Tako_Touch” – a tribute to the seductive power of the octopus. Her sultry glances betray her enjoyment as puckered tentacles wrap and slide over every part of her bare skin. Each photo offers a new perspective on this sensual experience - for this we say thank you and congratulations for winning December’s Art Prize!
LILA_S Date: 01/12/2014 LILA_S ||
Folio: MIDSUMMER_NIGHTS
A landslide vote at HQ this month for Lila_S' "Midsummer Nights", a folio which takes us from the sweet sun-drenched tiles of Lila's flower strewn patio, to beneath the foaming of the aquamarine waves at the beach. Lila's true beauty shines from within, but it's her skills with her camera that allow her to share it so eloquently, regardless of the physical distance between us. Congratulations, Lila_S, for winning November's Art Prize!

MAGGIE_A Date: 01/11/2014 MAGGIE_A ||
Folio: RHIZINE
A thread outlined in light, a tiny golden filament, the pupil of her eye, widening oh so slightly. Maggie_A strips down and breaks down: the world into its component parts, her feelings into colors, her naked body into the grass. Art, emotion, nudity and light collide in Rhizine, resulting in a splendid example of self-portraiture which goes well beyond the stretch-and-snap. Congratulations, Maggie A! You've won October's Art Prize!
SAMSARA_H Date: 01/10/2014
Artist: SAMSARA_H
Folio: TRIBAL_FUSION
Samsara H is a breath of fresh air, filling our screens with a joyful mood and rich, dynamic color palettes which put us in mind of long days shooting 35mm film, when the experience mattered just as much as the final product. Samsara's simple day at the beach, underlined with evocative moments of contemplation and abstract plays at shape and form, have us feeling all touched and nostalgic. So congratulations, Samsara H, for winning September's Art Prize!
LILA_J Date: 01/09/2014 LILA_J ||
Folio: VIBRANT_FLESH
It was a landslide this month as we lined up at HQ to cast our votes, overwhelmingly in favor of Lila_J's oh-so "Vibrant Flesh". We can't help but respond to the wild, joyful spill of color which winds out from Lila's paintbrush, in stark contrast with the seductive mystery in her eyes. Congratulations, Lila J, on winning August's Art Prize!
AINSLEY_C Date: 01/08/2014
Artist: AINSLEY_C
Folio: FIRST_MORNING
It takes great courage to post naked photos of oneself here at ISM, and Ainsley C's folio, "First Morning", takes the exposure one step further. Baring her scars for the first time, Ainsley takes on the whole world at once - daring us to look, and to love her as much as she loves herself. Along with the emotional depth of this exposure comes an elegantly enacted theme of emergence, deep vivid colors, and beautifully framed closeups, making Ainsley_C's debut folio a shoo-in for July's Art Prize. Congratulations!

PIXIE_P Date: 01/07/2014
Artist: PIXIE_P
Folio: COTTON_TAIL
Pixie_P embraces the audience from the start, introducing the details of her body in intimate close up shots. As she takes the camera to arm's length, she allows us wider look into her world: hand drawn pictures on the wall, her pet rabbit. For her artful use of field size and composition, we are proud to award June's Art Prize to Pixie_P, for her primary folio, "Cotton_Tail". Congratulations!
AZUMI Date: 01/06/2014
Artist: AZUMI
Folio: ECHOING
It wasn't easy for Azumi's folio to sneak up on us - her feet on the bare floorboards, echoing, the snap of a twig - but what alerted us to her presence most of all was the sound of her heart beating. Alive and vital, Azumi came echoing in through empty aesthetic spaces, filling them instead with her light and thought and body. Congratulations, Azumi, for winning May's Art Prize!
KAWA Date: 01/05/2014
Artist: KAWA
Folio: AKIBARE
When Kawa turns her gaze on herself, a strange beauty is magnified. 'Akibare' reflects the quiet brightness of the cusp between seasons, waxing and waning, a folio of shrewd curiosity as Kawa casts auto-erotic glances into her own in-between spaces. Congratulations, Kawa, for winning April's Art Prize!
GRACIE_LEE Date: 01/04/2014 GRACIE_LEE ||
Folio: GRACIES_WEB
One day, Gracie_Lee walked out, naked as a sparrow, her footfalls delicate on the bending grasses and her camera taptapping against her hip. The world through Gracie's eyes is a soft and quiet place, rich with light refracting. Gracie Lee, fascinated by brilliance of her suncaught hair, the bokeh beauty of the day's colors brought back into focus by a sharp, clean twist of her efficient lens, the rippled creases and long taut planes of her own skin. Congratulations, Gracie Lee.

VIVIANA Date: 01/03/2014
Artist: VIVIANA
Folio: LAUGH_RIOT
Going through Viviana's folio "Laugh Riot" is like pulling a scarf out of a hat filled with emotions, each picture capturing a pure expression of mood. It's important to remember that beauty isn't always sunshine and laughter, but also moments of stark reality and calm contemplation. For reminding us of this, Viviana, thank you - and congratulations, for winning February's Art Prize!
JAY_D Date: 01/02/2014
Artist: JAY_D
Folio: SUSPEND
Jay D's "Suspend" took big risks this month, combining flawless photography, thrilling public nudity, and fearless performance art as she perched on the balcony of her apartment tower, proudly displaying her naked body for the world to see. Jay_D ought to be proud - her risks paid off, nabbing January's Art Prize and our ardent admiration. Cheers, and congratulations to you, Jay D!
MADITA Date: 01/01/2014
Artist: MADITA
Folio: GOLDENESTUNDE
We're so pleased to wrap up 2013 and usher in the new year by offering up December's Art Prize to the curly-haired nyphette Madita, who has us alternately soothed and swooning with her white flowers and long bluegrass, that cheeky smile and elegant framing. Well done Madita, Glückliches neues Jahr, and congratulations!
