I am much too obsessed with Paris for my own good, especially considering that I’ve never been there. I’m enamored of the idea of it, so when I do eventually go (and, by God, I will), there is a decent chance that I will be hideously disappointed. With that in mind, I’m significantly less interested in purchasing tickets to Paris than I am in purchasing photography books that portray it as idealistically as I do in my head. Why go all the way there just to be let down when I can sit right here and just pretend that I’m there and it’s awesome? Paris, Portrait of a City, “the true family album of all Parisians,” is just the glossy 544-page photo book I need to sustain my delusions, and with its chronological layout spanning photographers from Daguerre to Cartier-Bresson, it’s a solid lesson in European history, too. We’ll always have Paris, after all. [$69.99, Taschen]

A Picture Of James Dean Pissing Can Be Yours

We’ve seen many photos of James Dean looking sexy and stoic. But we’ve never seen any like this. I didn’t know he was such a multi-tasker. Talking on the phone while taking a wizz is no easy feat. Most remarkable was that he left the door open so celebrity photographer Frank Worth could snap a pic of it. You can hang this print in your bathroom for inspiration. It will run you $899. If pissing photos are not quite your style there are more Frank Worth photographs of James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and others for sale on Fab.com. [WOW]

Project Unbreakable Sheds A Different Light On Sexual Assault

I don’t think I’ve ever been so moved, and yet so disturbed, by a series of photographs than I am by Grace Brown’s “Project Unbreakable.” Totally enveloped by each and every image and accompanying text, I could not hold back a few tears, or the goose bumps. “Project Unbreakable,” a photography project created in October 2011, explores the raw truth of sexual assault, as it’s experienced by both men and women. Each victim is asked to write down quotes that were said before, during, or after the assault. Then, Brown photographs each victim and displays them on her website. Some victims are willing to show their face in the photographs, while others use the poster to shield themselves. Keep reading »

I’m drawn to art that evokes a strong emotional reaction, and when I look at this beautifully simple picture, a feeling of calmness and freedom washes over me. I’d love to hang this in my office and look into those endless ripples of water whenever I get stressed out. [$60 for 11" x 14" print, 20x200]

Photographer Dina Goldstein Imagines Barbie’s Life If Ken Liked Men

Back in the day, Ken was always a hot commodity whenever my friends and I fought over whose Barbie would be the lucky lady that day. Turns out, Ken might not even be into plastic boobs, anyway. In a four-room set she built in an art gallery for a piece called “In The Dollhouse,” photographer Dina Goldstein captures Barbie and Ken’s failing marriage as Ken tries to sort out his own sexuality in an unseen lifestyle within the Dream House walls.
