Second Renaissance – Adding modern perspective to classical themes
Renaissance art is new again with Second Renaissance, where artists with iPhones are creating pictures that evoke a feeling of classic art. Portraiture harks back to imagery from bygone eras, paying homage with subdued palettes and luxurious fabrics that resemble paintings.
This Renaissance, however, is also about providing new perspectives and championing diversity.

• Stand out by featuring repurposed classic visual themes to tell your story
• Excite your audience by pairing the familiar with the unexpected
• Drive positive change through images that have gravity and credibility
Conceptual Realism – Showcasing reality in unexpected ways
Conceptual Realism was born out of evolving long-term visual trends, new technology, and the public’s current skepticism to take things at face value. Consumers are craving imagery that looks real, even if the idea behind the imagery is farfetched. In response, photographers are creating more conceptual images executed in a realist style. The key is to bring a sense of attainability and relatability to the images, while maintaining a level of absurdity that adds intrigue.
Evolving long-term visual trends, new technology, and the public’s current skepticism to take things at face value has spawned a new visual expression.

Masculinity Undone – Repicturing what it means to be a man
Men, much like women, are often portrayed as stereotypes in the media—from the jock to the TV dad to the lazy man. With Masculinity Undone, the antiquated concept of masculinity is fading away. We see a movement toward a complex, gentle, and emotional side of men—breaking away from the standard-issue male visual identity in advertising and communications.
As conversations around toxic masculinity dominate the press, we track the trend that may liberate men from long-established visual stereotypes.
Boys Boys Boys – Behind the trend Masculinity Undone. Photographer Rosie Matheson captures the true essence of men around the world.
Masculinity Undone
• Go beyond expectations of how men and women are portrayed in visual storytelling
