There's an unsurprising but interesting rise in young artists and photographers using the internet both as a source of inspiration but also as a canvas for their craft. 

We recently told you about Sandro Kopp, the German artist who paints his subjects via Skype. Now meet 24 year-old photography student Petra Stenvall and her ongoing project, The Americans.

Once again via the medium of Skype, London-based Petra travels the breath of the USA from the comfort of her home, directing and shooting her subjects from across the pond through her webcam. Each girl featured in the series was recruited after replying to a casting call and is completely unknown to Stenvall. The computer screen truly becomes the canvas.
