Photographer Meg Wachter Dumps SpaghettiOs On Her Pal

In her series “Dumped!,” Brooklyn-based photographer Meg Wachter pours everything from Pepto-Bismol to cottage cheese to Fruit Loops on her friends’ heads and snaps their reactions. Is it wrong that I find these pics strangely erotic? [Meg Wachter Photo] Keep reading »

Looking For A T-Shirt Not Everyone Has?

Rather than going for the seen-everywhere J.Crew or Urban Outfitters T-shirts this season, think about expanding your cotton-horizons: L.A. photographer Max Wanger (he’s ah-mazing!) has turned some of his most beloved photos into adorable T-shirts. Every month he creates another design in very limited quantities and when you order, you get a postcard of the actual photo it was based on too! Daily Candy loved last month’s “Love” (in sign language) shirt, but I’m all about this month’s tee, “Wish.” (That’s it, above…) All shirts cost $35 and are available here.

Lady Gaga Shakes Up Things At Polaroid

Polaroid has joined forces with Lady Gaga to revamp its brand, which is popular with hipsters but not most people in the digital age. The entities will develop a line of “imaging products.” We really have no idea what that means, and Gaga is remaining vague on the subject.

Here’s what she said in a press release: Keep reading »

Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Beautiful

New York magazine proclaimed this “Crustiest Face” in their roundup of the best and worst from the November style glossies, but the look is the result of hours of work by renowned makeup artist Alex Box. According to Trend.Land: “The woman uses the visage as a canvas to which she applies layers of non-conforming techniques which result in mind blowing avant-garde face paintings.” Box has worked closely with fashion photographer Rankin, who shot Box’s new photography book of extreme faces, Alex Box. After the jump, more of their fantastical collaborations. Keep reading »

CameraBag App Turns Crappy iPhone Photos Into Works Of Art

This weekend I became a kick-ass photographer. Well, at least it looks like I did. I downloaded this super awesome app for my iPhone called CameraBag for $1.99 and it turns even the most dull iPhone photos into gallery-quality awesomeness (well, almost). Simply upload one of the images and then change the way it looks using different “lenses” and filters. I brightened and heightened the contrast on this photo of my dog Lucca looking miserable in the snow using the Colorcross filter. After the jump, check out a photo of the dinner that my BF and I prepared last night (butternut squash soup and seared scallops!) looking like it was ripped from the pages of Bon Appetit.

Women’s Magazines Shocked By Bald Women Photos

Milan/Paris-based photographer Enzo dal Verme (he’s shot for Vanity Fair, l’Uomo Vogue, Marie Claire, Grazia, Elle, etc.) has shot a series of bald women in a new gallery called “Bald is Beautiful.” All of the subjects have alopecia, have gone through chemo or are just happier without hair, says Verme, who interestingly goes on to remark: “A group of American bald women got together with the idea to redefine the concept of beauty. Men can be blond, brown, red, white and … bald. Every single magazine (about 20) that saw the story refused to publish it with the very same motivation: those pictures might clash with the feminine ideal supported by the advertisers.” Certainly the magazines’ loss—these women are truly beautiful hairless and as they are. Check out more of his photos, after the jump! Keep reading »

Photos Of Girls Twirling Their Hair

Around seven years ago, photographer Jeff Mermelstein started taking photographs of women twirling their hair. Walking the city streets with camera in hand, Mermelstein found he wasn’t lacking for subjects. Over the years, he became an “expert” in female hair twirlers. Reportedly, women twirl their hair more in the summer, and women of all races and nationalities do it. Some women twirl a thin strand; other women twirl bigger chunks. So, why do women twirl their hair? “There’s an easy interpretation: reflective of anxiety and tension,” says Mermelstein. “And nervousness.” Now, he’s turned his preoccupation into a book, Twirl / Run, which also features his other preoccupation, photographs of people running.

Bad Barbie! Bad, Bad!

Hey, the economy is hard for everyone, and if anyone knows anything about making career switches, it’s Barbie. Her latest gig is as a dominatrix, or at least it is according to photographer Nancy Farmer, who created these set-ups with the dolls. We always knew Ken had to be into bondage. Click through to see some more hilarious pics after the jump! [Trend de la Creme] Keep reading »

Nail Art As Real Art

Finally, someone looks beyond the superficial value of manicures. Photographer Molly Sorno focuses her work on nail art, salons, and manicure culture. Her pictures make you realize that your nails say a lot about you—concentrate solely on them, and you start imagining the person neon airbrushed tips belong to. Sorno’s work is now on display at the Brooklyn, NY gallery Nefer/NFR along with other artists’ works that explore the concept of adornment. If you’re in the area, check it out! Otherwise, look to Sorno’s vision as proof that what you wear on the outside resonates culturally. (Just don’t go so far as to call yourself an artist when you’re getting dressed in the morning.)
