The Friday Feature

Feature Friday is a weekly promotion of some the great work on deviantART that comes to my attention in the week leading up to each issue. While the majority of my features will be abstract or surreal photography, expect to see some variations on a theme and in media as I browse beyond my allocated genre.

The Saturday Spotlight

Spotlight feature articles are a weekly promotion of a talented artist within the abstract/surreal community, whether that be as a photographer or practitioner of another medium. Usually these will take the form of features, but will sometimes be text-based interviews asking their ideas about and inspirations behind the genre.
