American multidisciplinary artist Tasya van Ree is known for her striking black-and-white portraits, which evoke a timeless glamour inspired by the work of famed 20th-century photographers Henri Cartier-Bresson and Weegee. With an intuitive eye for form and composition, Tasya captures the internal dialogue of her subjects through her seductive photographs. She reveals her own identity through her distinctive fashion choices. “There’s a fine line between the masculine and the feminine and I think I ride that really fine line between the two,” she says.

Tasya van Ree is an American photographer, painter, and designer. She is best known for her black-and-white photographs of celebrities. Originally from Hawaii, Tasya moved to Los Angeles later and started her career as a photographer. Tasya has held many solo exhibitions. She has also been part of many collaborations, with artists such as Amy Arbus, Jessica Lange, Gus Van Sant, and David Lynch. Tasya has also been in the news for her “domestic partnership” with actor Amber Heard. Tasya and Amber were involved in a bitter domestic violence incident in 2009, which was highlighted by the media. They split later. Tasya has also designed T-shirts, painted, and made pencil drawings. She specializes in dream-drawing. Tasya is often seen in her signature cowboy hat. She incorporates the art and culture of Los Angeles in her creations. (Source: www.thefamouspeople.com)


We're not sure if you've noticed, but people have the tendency (and that's putting it lightly) to compare New York and Los Angeles. For us, NYC is the equivalent of ground control: it’s where we like to make things happen, so to speak. You know, #killingitinthegame and such (that's what the kids are saying these days, right?). L.A., on the other hand, has kind of become our hometown-away-from-home (um, make that one of many). Hear us out: not to get totally sentimental or anything (and, like, completely cliché), but we just feel so, well, chill when we're on the West Coast. Who knew that a five hour flight could be the equivalent of a Xanax, right? And when your job entails entering people’s homes on the regular, in Los Angeles, more often than not it feels more like hanging out with the subject at hand than, you know, actually working. If you’re following our train of thought here, you might imagine that spending time in the West Hollywood abode of photographer and artist Tasya Van Ree, was, well, pretty ideal. Enter into the equation the fact that Van Ree is a transplant to California and grew up in what might possibly be the only place on Earth that’s even more chill—that would be Hawaii (it’s okay to be jealous)—and you can pretty much jump to the conclusion that her home was a straight-up sanctuary. And yes, Van Ree is as totally low key, creative and ineffably cool as her origins and current living situation would suggest. Like any Los Angelo worth her green juice, the photographer is a die hard raw foodie, frequenting places like Moon Juice and Erewhon (seriously though, hit both of those places up next time you’re in town and thank us—and Van Ree—later). The woman even carries around a glass gallon jug of water—because you can never be too hydrated, you guys. And West Coast style? Van Ree could write the book. Forget OTT Hollywood; think easy going, never-try-too-hard vintage, androgynous jackets, a seriously great hat collection, piles of archival Helmut Lang and Rick Owens and an endless array of footwear—spiky Nicholas Kirkwood and Fendi included. That’s not to say, though, that Van Ree hasn’t seen her fair share of—how should we put it?—City of Angels glamour. Her photography subjects, for one thing, include one-time Cara Delevingne GF Michelle Rodriguez, and she counts the future Mrs. Johnny Depp (that would be Amber Heard) as an ex. We like to think of it as the best of both worlds, you guys. (Source: coveteur.com)

American actress Amber Heard smiles at the media as she arrives at the High Court in London, Thursday, July 23, 2020. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham)LONDON Amber Heard is wrapping up her evidence in Johnny Depps libel case against a British tabloid over allegations of domestic violence, further accusing her ex-husband of abusing her when he was high on drugs or was drunk. Depp denies abusing Heard and claims she was the aggressor during their tempestuous relationship. During the first two weeks of case testimony at the High Court, judge Andrew Nicol heard from Depp and from several current or former employees who backed his version of events. In his testimony, Depp said he was the one being abused by Heard and that she had a history of being violent against him. (Source: www.clickorlando.com)
