Today’s Edge Gallery spotlights are on Tiviyah REsident and Ramsa Luv:
Tivi Inglewood (Tiviyah Resident) has been taking photos since she had a decent enough graphics card to not crash trying to go above a “Low” setting. While her earlier pictures are quite cringe-worthy to her now, she’d like to think that with time and determination, she’s improved to the point that she’s been humbled by this Exhibition in The Edge Gallery, her first forray into photography as more than just “blog photos”. Her blog photos have always been more artistic than just basic style cards, and she is incredibly appreciative of what John, Eles, and Windlight have built here, to bring fashion imagery closer to the art side of the world, and to let us dip our toes in.

Today’s Edge Gallery spotlight is on Tempest Rosca! You can read about Tempest below:
I came to the amazing world that is SL in the summer of 2008 after being asked by SKY news whether I would provide feedback on using SL as a social news media resource and, like many, I caught the bug and haven’t left apart from a few months here and there !
I started modeling in SL during the winter of 2008 and enjoyed pushing the boundaries of my unique fashion style and I have made some fabulous friends whilst appreciating the amazing talent of creators out there who still, to this day, amaze me!
Whilst I’ve now taken a step back from front line fashion and much prefer working behind the scenes and mentoring, it’s still very much in my blood and that will never change – my richest and most reward experience has been working alongside my wonderful friends at FEROSH- who embrace and recognize the creative bond between Fashion and Photography .
Photography is a huge part of fashion industry in both lives – whether you are in front or behind of the camera and it was an easy transition to move into this world. I had no Photoshop skills at all so I asked friends who were kind enough to provide tuition and, of course, look towards YouTube and Deviant-art to dip in to the huge pool of tutorials out there. I still have so much to learn and the talent of other photographers out there just completely blows me away every single day. I am extremely humble when I am asked to take pictures of either individuals or for publications and sometimes think ‘They can’t mean me, surely!’
I want to take this opportunity to thank my family, friends and especially to The Edge and Windlight Magazine and Gallery, who have continued to support my passion for all things pictorial!!
Today’s Edge Gallery Spotlight is on Wicca Merlin. Wicca is also the Select Windlight Artist and is a previous Windlight Artist in Residence. In addition to art and photography, Wicca is the owner of Wicca’s Wardrobe! You can read about Wicca below:
Wicca Merlin came to Second Life 2007 when a friend told her she could experience music from other countries as her home country of Germany did not afford her the same exposure to music from around the globe. Presently Wicca is a designer and has her own brand, Wicca’s Wardrobe. Wicca’s Wardrobe is a team of 4 people – Veovis, Redclaw and Wicca – who design and create together and Prisilla, who is the good soul and GM.
She is a well known, experienced and respected model and blogger who enjoys mentoring others. In her blogging and photography, she always strives to be different, bringing in her love of fantasy and Avant Garde, her photography always takes on a bit of an edge. Wicca was surprised that her photography would be considered art and was flattered to be invited to create an exhibit.
Today’s Edge Gallery Artist Spotlight is on Danity Mynx:
Danity Mynx is inspired by fashion for most of her artistic work. Being a model has really helped to grown the hidden side of her artistic eye.
