Justin vanGenderen

@justinvangenderen
We're incredibly proud to announce our collaboration with Justin vanGenderen, Justin’s work was first pointed out to us by one of his followers, which shows how incredibly engaged his still relatively small audience really is.
The young Chicago native continues to surprise us with his breatktaking art. There just is something about Justin’s work that really speaks to a deep, untapped part of the soul. He describes his art as being ‘fueled’ by nostalgia, and that somehow really manages to come across. When you see it, you will get this. Being able to communicate these kinds of feelings without having to articulate them is what art is about, and it’s a rarity that you should look for when purchasing a piece of your own.
Inspired by Retro, Space, and Sustainability
From looking at Justin’s work, you can just tell that he has a strong passion for the primary themes in his art. When I asked him if we could license his ‘renewable energy’ artworks, he responded: “the more people that can see those the better!” And that really showed us how genuinely passionate he was for these incredibly important topics.
In his own words:
“My work continues to move through outer space, the quantum realm and into new and interesting scientific theories about the world we live in. The future seems full of new discoveries and I look forward to learning about them by exploring them through my work.
-
For example, when I began work on my series of space art, I wanted to provide a beautiful and accessible approach towards subjects and theories that were so much bigger than myself and provide a way to celebrate the science that created them.”

Rannvá Joensen

@rannvajoensen
I was first introduced to Rannvá a couple months ago through her imposing landscape photography work but soon learned that there was more to her story than met the eye. Most people dream of doing something that their heart truly desires but not all will act on it. For that, Rannva's story is an incredibly inspiring one, and she’s an example to us all. Born and raised in the Faroe Islands but moving away to the big city at a young age, Rannva quickly got into filmmaking and acting. However, she always felt like something was missing in her life.
Her story is best told in her own words:

“One day it hit me! I remember it so well, I had just arrived at Copenhagen Airport, and as I entered the metro, I thought to myself. This is NOT what I want! I don’t want to be standing in a packed metro, I don’t want to be living in some small apartment anymore feeling like a chicken in a cage, I don’t want to constantly be looking at my clock and be running for every second, I don’t wanna wake up to see a grey concrete wall first thing in the morning. I realized at that moment I wanted the feeling of an open space, a place where nature sets the pace, a place where I wake up seeing the ocean and nature first thing in the morning, a place I can be totally alone if I want to. For me, that meant true freedom. It was the Faroese nature that was drawing me back. Born, raised, and surrounded by it, it was my playground, a place where I would explore and express myself, a place that felt safe and where I could find comfort. I had lost my entire identity by being in a city and needed to go back to find myself again.
It is easy living here, as some would call it. There is no pressure from society to be this perfect person who’s good at everything. Here, you’re accepted the way you are! And that’s what I need right now. I’ve come to a point in my life where doing what I love and what I’m passionate about, is more important than fitting in. I’ll spend almost every day out in the Faroese nature. It nourishes my soul in so many ways. It grounds me, let’s me find my inner self and allows me to think without being disturbed. It gives me the right energy to be creative, express myself and develop as a person. It reminds me who I am and what I stand for.
Photography has played a major role in expressing myself here, and as a landscape photographer, I think winter has the most stunning seasonal color pallet. It’s an exciting time to go out and capture landscapes that were once so familiar and see them in entirely different perspectives. Especially the storms, when everything turns from being calm to chaotic when the earth seems widely alive and we lose all control. That’s when I feel most alive. I’ll be fully present and my mind will only focus on that and nothing else. I can feel all my senses getting stronger, the adrenaline rushing through my body, my heart will beat faster and I’ll get all excited. For me, it’s a reminder of nature being the supreme ruler and that it’s okay for us to not be in control of everything in life and just live in the moment. Also, there isn’t a better season to cuddle up in a warm blanket with a nice warm cup of hot chocolate.

I love to show travelers what the Faroe Islands is all about, what makes this place so unique compared to others both through my photography, and my guided tours. Right now I am getting my new tour operation company up and running smoothly and then I have a big wish to get into filmmaking again.

Living on the edge

by Rannvá Joensen

"Been a dream of mine to visit this remote islands called Fugloy. Not easy getting here. My first attempt failed, when the helicopter cancelled because of a storm rolling in. My second attempt flying out went a bit better even though I knew I could get stuck here because of bad weather conditions. Got rewarded with the most mind-blowing view of how harsh this environment is, living in such a place. Snapped this image from the helicopter window and crossed my fingers for getting the shot." Rannvá Joensen
