Time Capsule: Color Film From 1922

This clip from a 1922 Kodak color film test is one of the earlier color films in existence. Watching it, I can’t help wondering about the actresses shown. What were their lives like on the heels of women’s suffrage and the cusp of the flipper era? Were they married? Did they go on to… More »

Go Snapshot-Happy With A Retro Fish-Eye Camera

We love a cute camera as much as the next girl, but we’re particularly infatuated with cameras that are as functional as they are adorable. Cue Lomography’s Fisheye 2 Camera. It’s tiny and cute as hell, but also packs the punch of multiple and longtime exposure buttons, extra flash, and a fish-eye viewfinder. Bonus points… More »

Jumping Through The Ages

As far as editorials go, few things are more fun than a good jump shot. And while Caroline Trentini’s Vogue leap (pictured) has epitomized the jump shot for the past several seasons, she owes her inspiration to photographer Phillipe Hallsman, the man who more or less invented the technique. Hallsman captured everyone from Marilyn Monroe… More »


Today’s Lady News: Photographer Says Facebook Removed Her Breast Photos

Australian photographer Gemma Rose-Turnbull says a Facebook administrator removed two of her photographs from the site’s “Photos” section because they depicted exposed breasts.

Photographer Mom Dressed Baby Up Like Hitler And Other Dictators

I like art a whole lot. And I love living in a country where people can create any kind of artwork they want without fear of being thrown in prison or killed. I’m guessing Nina Maria Kleivan, a Danish-Norwegian photographer, feels the same way. Eleven years ago, Kleivan created a series of photos of her… More »


Karl Lagerfeld Styles Designer Doppelgangers For Harper’s Bazaar

Karl Lagerfeld is the self-proclaimed king of the snooty, self-centered fashion world. At times, it seems like he lives to make aspiring fashionistas feel inadequate. (Maybe he does? Who knows.) But then there are those awesome moments when Uncle K pokes fun at himself. To wit: the Kaiser’s spread for the March issue of Harper’sMore »


When The Mirror Does Lie

This striking image by photographer Ross Brown explores the scary world inside the head of those with body dysmorphia.

Cute Alert: Inside Out Teddy Bears!

Adorable! Boing Boing points us to photographer Kent Rogowski’s weirdly cute portraits of teddy bears that have been turned inside out. According to Rogowski, “These bears, which have lived and loved and lost as much as their owners, have suffered and endured through it all.” In other words, they’re just like us, “revealing their inner… More »


Artist Katie Sokoler Keeps The Kid Inside Alive

In-flight magazines almost never hold my attention—more often than not, I lose interest in them once I figure out the crossword puzzle is already completed. After this, I usually find myself flipping through Sky Mall and picking out all the outrageous things I could buy for my cat if I had all the… More »


Wedding Photos: Kites Are The New Balloons

So, yeah, I’m getting married this year, but you knew that. As I’m trying to figure out what the hell to do for my wedding, I’ve been pouring over loads and loads of wedding photographer blogs for inspiration, ideas and a reprieve from the machine that is the got-to-have-the-most-expensive-everything wedding industry. Mostly, I’m not sweating… More »

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… More »
