Scott Scheidly's Pink II series is on the wall until Oct. 24, 2014.

Each of Scheidly’s subjects have been noted for their bravado and manliness, and in many cases their public images were once highly monitored to only exude such characteristics. By experimenting with our preconceptions of color within popular imagery, Scheidly challenges his viewers to react and contemplate about the tension he has manifested.

Kitezh, Russia by Pieter Ten Hoopen

The year 1200 the city Kitezh in Russia got attack by the Mogul army. Under the attack the city became invisible. From this day no one knows where the city and its people went. Once a year people from all over Russia come to visit this place. Today there is a lake on the place the city once was. The lake is situated just beside the small town of Vladimirskoe. Some people from this small town say they have seen the City of Kitezh coming up from the water around midsummer. Other people have seen an armed guard walking around the town.

An outpouring of Russian patriotism has accompanied antagonism towards the West. Journalist Anna Ratafyeva was travelling on the Moscow metro when she was slapped in the face by an elderly woman who didn’t like the picture of cartoon character Snoopy waving a Union Jack on the front of her sweatshirt.  "(The woman) approached me, called me ‘an American whore’ and slapped me in the face. 
"I have a polo [shirt] with US symbols and a shop assistant in a pharmacy told me it was unpatriotic," Andrey Albekov wrote on BBC Russian’s Facebook page.
Among the insults that could be heard was “national traitors”, a term used by Russian President Vladimir Putin when he gave a speech in Crimea after it was annexed by Russia in March.
