With Mixed Emotions


Featured Curator: Ali // ctrl-glitch

Joshua Malik is a 19 year old photographer from the United States. He got his start with surreal photography around two and half years ago, and quickly mastered the craft of digital manipulation. When asked what inspired him to start making his dark, earthy, and subdued pieces, he said:

“It was so interesting to me that the weirdest nightmares I had could be turned into a photograph.  I am not really the best at drawing or other forms of art, and something clicked between photography, digital manipulation, and my brain.”

Some of Joshua’s favorite artists are Jenna Martin, Rob Woodcox, and Kyle Thompson.

This. Literally the first thing you learn when you begin to handle a gun is to only point the gun at something you are willing to shoot.

This is natural art.


Are you a writer or artist? Want a chance to see your work published? Then submit it to Welter, the University of Baltimore’s literary magazine. 

Submissions are open to anyone, but they’re due by October 1, so get on it. Get the full details.

P.S. I’m teaching the class that publishes the journal (one of my several jobs in addition to bookbinding), and I’d love it if you submit your work or help me get the word out about the opportunity. We start class in a couple weeks, and it would be awesome if we had some submissions by then. :)
