Polaroid Film Is Back!

Polaroid film, which disappeared from the market when the company stopped producing it a couple years ago, will be for sale once again on Thursday. After the sad news about Polaroid’s disappearance surfaced, The Impossible Project bought an old Polaroid plant and vowed to make the film once again and better than ever. That they seem to have succeeded may sound like a mere moment in whimsical kitsch, but it’s actually awesome news for anyone who likes to look really good in pictures. We don’t know exactly what it is about Polaroid film, but it’s basically the most flattering medium ever conceived. Think back on the Polaroids of you that are floating around and we think you’ll realize there’s nary a bad one in the bunch. Recapture your photogenic side at the-impossible-project.com this Thursday. [NYLON] Keep reading »

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 infant daughter dressed as the world’s cruelest dictators, like Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Idi Amin, Benito Mussolini and Saddam Hussein.

It begs the question: why, oh why, would a mother dress her baby up like Hitler? Keep reading »

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’s Bazaar. In it, he takes model Iris Strubegger and transforms her into designer lookalikes—including Lagerfeld himself. Strubegger switches genders seamlessly in convincing portrayals of Donatella Versace, Rei Kawakubo, John Galliano, Carolina Herrera, Sonia Rykiel, and Vivienne Westwood. More images after the jump.

When The Mirror Does Lie

This striking image by photographer Ross Brown explores the scary world inside the head of those with body dysmorphia. Do you believe (or know) that anorexics see such a drastic difference when looking at themselves? Is this the altering lens through with the fashion industry sees its models?

Reality Ad Campaign: Agyness And Orlando Couple Up

Leave it to Terry Richardson to create the most uncomfortable and awkward scenarios, only to capture them in a way that’s grossly entertaining. That’s what he’s brilliantly done with a campaign for a Chinese clothing label called Me & City. In the shoot, he sets up Agyness Deyn and Orlando Bloom as a couple, catching their most realistic moments on film—a mundane conversation at a cafe, being goofy in the kitchen, or playing around in Orlando’s dressing room. OK, so maybe the shots of Aggy with a chainsaw or surrounded by dozens of balloons aren’t quite everyday happenings (well, who knows what you do with your boyfriend). Keep reading »

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 core [so we] might we better understand our own.” I wonder what happened to my Pooh?

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 money in the world. But on my most recent trip, I found myself not only intrigued by an article but emotionally affected as well. The piece was on Brooklyn-based photographer/street artist Katie Sokoler whose recent work is about capturing the child in everyone. Keep reading »

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 much of the planning—the day is going to be perfect, more because I’m marrying the guy I l-o-v-e, not because the flowers are the exact right shade of coral or peach, but that hasn’t stopped me from becoming completely obsessed with wedding and engagement photo blogs. Seriously, they’re like crack—my Google reader is infested with them! So, seeing as though I scroll through enough photos to make my eyes water up and glaze over each week, there’s been one hilarious trend I’ve noticed … Keep reading »
