PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of the Human Form
German artist Claudia Rogge digitally transforms her photography to create patterned and rapturous images of masses of people.
Often the subject matter of her work appears bleak or apocalyptic, but ultimately portrays the vulnerable beauty of these deliberately arranged human figures.

Gabriel Moginot for Horst’s Second Issue. Remember him from Kate Moss’s April 2012 ed on American Vogue? This corsetier finally had an olympiad all his own in an editorial aptly called ‘55cm’ for Horst’s second issue. Featuring pieces from the menswear collections with his creations, he is the true-blue gender-bending, haute S&M poster child of the century.
Photography by Armin Morbach and styling by Ingo Nahrwold. For more about Gabriel Moginot, click here.

Every once in a while, I buy old magazines, books, and various knick-knacks with pictures of maiko and geiko on them, then scan them and upload to Flickr to share with you all. I like to think that I’m helping keep the memories of these ladies alive. Plus, it’s always fun to admire their hikizuri kimono! [The Sun Magazine, June 1972 Issue] – – Read more…

Chris Birch appears to have a dead skunk on his head. This was my opening thought to the much-hyped BBC Three documentary
which hit UK screens this last week. The programme received a huge amount of attention in the media and on social media, following earlier such media feasts when the story was covered in the tabloids
. The documentary, I Woke Up Gay, featuring ‘Kris’ (he creatively changed his name) and his boyfriend Jak (the Telegraph noted this odd aversion to the letter ‘C’
) as he tries to prove that it was a stroke that turned him from a heterosexual into the homosexual media seeking performer he is today. Most reactions seemed divided between whether Continue reading
Just want to share some images that I shot a loooooooong time ago, maybe about a year and a half ago to be a little more precise. Anyway, I never publicly shared this series (with the exception of one photo}. I was a little insecure about putting it out there because:
Late Night with Bill Eddins Last night was spent at Late Night Symphony at the Winspear Centre. Probably one of the best Friday night’s spent in Edmonton. I had the pleasure of listening to conductor Bill Eddins work the audience throughout the night. His humour, suave and talent kept the crowd on their toes. The music featured in last nights performance was inspired! Hollywood was the theme, so you can image the talent it takes to score a film. The orchestra played songs from the classic James Bond … – – Read more:
by ©VANDIELANDNational Geographic that arrived today (or more like looking at the pictures), when I arrived on their PHOTO JOURNAL section. They featured Traer Scott and more specifically her Natural History portfolio. It is such an amazing set! The photographer in me just wants to steal her idea and go out and do the exact same thing, although I know that the range of photos she captured (candidly, many props to her), is worth many, many hours waiting in front of dioramas. So instead I – – Read more:
Often playfully macabre, theatrical, and possessing an impressive and creative dedication to all the possibilities of black light, I first met James “Zirco” Fisher at the Bazaar of the Bizarre where he was promoting a number of his diverse projects. Aside from being a part of the dark ambient group “Squid Lid”, Zirco Fisher also does an array of illustrations including his “Disfigures of Speech” series, one of which is shown below: Whether DJing or performing their own … Read more

The Jonathan Levine always has great art shows. Currently, Natalia Fabia – Punk Rock Rainbow Sparkle is up. Loving the subject! “In the artist’s words: “Punk rock is one of my true loves. Punk to me is an attitude, a lifestyle. Punk is a middle finger, punk is do-it-yourself, do what you want. It’s a kind of freedom. I’m attracted to my subjects for having that quality. This attitude is what I wanted to convey in this series. My models (many of which are friends) are all to – – Read more:
