Sir | Mario Testino

“The way men are seen in photography, in fashion, and the way that men look at pictures of themselves has changed in recent years. It is a subject that has come into focus: The masculine image, a man’s personal style, changing attitudes to the male face and body.” — Mario Testino It definitely has, hasn't it? Masculinity, in all its forms is a fascinating subject. I feel like the line between masculine and feminine is ever blurring and these captures are intimate in a way that feels feminine or delicate, but with men as subjects. Does that make sense? It's lovely to see the male form be … [Read more...]

The Prada archives x Lucia Giacani.

prada-archive-by-lucia-giacani-1

Prada is master of the "ugly/pretty" aesthetic. They recently opened their archives to fashion photographer Lucia Giacani, who shot them in a mannequin factory outside of Milan. The editorial entitled Morphosis was produced for ODDA magazine’s current Unrealism issue. I love seeing old and new favorites - like that fish scale dress, and the espadrille flat forms, colorful fur coat - brought to life again, damn, these clothes are ART, aren't they? And the eerie disembodied limbs are kind of creepy/fab.   Cool? Have a great day peeps! Photos via styledo.se … [Read more...]

INSTALOVIN’ @NOSURFINGNYC

I love this instagram account @nosurfingnyc. It's an account that documents a 35 mm film project featuring the words "No Surfing" written on found sofas across NYC and beyond. Friends and followers clue the @nosurfingnyc in to the locations of trashed sofas and he hunts em down. He's shot over 200 couches so far, mostly on film. He posts all his shots in a pattern: Sofa, Gorgeous Wave shot, and graphic "NO ____" signage. I bet this will turn out to be a book one day. Follow now, cause it's cool and delightful! I want the book! Or at least a print, amarite? … [Read more...]

The Vanderpump Rules Grease Lightening Shoot.

vanderpump-rules-season-3-pink-motel-30

I've been hate watching Vanderpump Rules for the past 3 seasons, and only half paying attention. Hate watching and half watching- because a seething intense loathing for Stassi made it hard for me to focus on anything else. But the other night on WWHL, the night after the Oscars, Andy Cohen said that Vanderpump Rules was the best show on TV and he enjoyed it more than The Oscars. And I just thought, you know what? So did I. How could people be less self aware? How is this real? But how could it be fake? Unlike all the Housewife shows, with fake vacations and staged scavenger hunts, the SUR … [Read more...]

DESIGN | HOUSE SAINT-FORGET.

140130_orig_saint-forget114462bw

Photographer Frederik Vercruysse shot this 1950's modernist house in Saint-Forget, France. It was designed by André Wogenscky, a noted architect who worked with Le Corbusier for 20 years. I LOVE how this photographer shoots interiors, in general, and this shoot is so nicely done. I've mentally filed this away for future use. In fact, I actually shot a house after seeing this, and I definitely called upon these images when shooting ;) … [Read more...]
