For The Communitarians, photographer Aaron Cohen documents life in Twin Oaks, a Virginian commune established in 1967 as part of the emerging back-to-the-land movement. Modeled in part from the ideals expressed in the mid-century utopian text Walden Two by novelist and psychologist B.F. Skinner, Twin Oaks has adhered to this day to its core principles of shared labor and environmentally sustainable living. Tracing the growth of Twin Oaks through its young residents, Cohen paints a captivating portrait of civilization as it exists at the periphery of mainstream society.
With a passion for all things surf, New Jersey-based photographer Ryan Struck strives to find beauty in a single instant of sport, from the tumbling of a wave to a splashing dive beneath the surface. Traveling the beaches of New Jersey to the base of the towering waves of Teahupo’o, Tahiti, Struck captures one-of-a-kind breaking waves bathed in natural sunlight.
