American photographer (& Artist) Jill Greenberg is a talented photographer who specialises in some seriously awesome re-touching skills. She's photographed celebrities, politicians, monkeys and had a pretty interesting career in photography and general trouble making.
The below shots are from her 2006 exhibition titled 'End Times' which copped quite a lot of controversy for photographing children after she had taken away lollipops that they had just been given, to provoke outbursts.
The lollies were returned after 30 seconds and the kids were fine, but that didnt stop the uproar from the crazies stating that it was "child abuse".
Greenberg said she had wanted to depict what reminded her of the "helplessness and anger I feel about our current political and social situation."
Forgetting the drama, how AMAZING are the images?
I've only listed a few here but you can easily google the rest.
French Photographer (not to forget- film maker and painter also) Mark Maggiori brings to life some awesome images.
Shooting on an analog camera (pentax 35mm) and sometimes using polaroids, he brings us some images that look aged, whimsical, edgy and keep me wondering why the fuck anybody bothers with digital cameras when analog looks SO DAMN GOOD.
Thanks Mark x
I haven't done a 'fashion babes not fashion slaves' post in a while, so I thought i'd do one and feature ONE stylish boo, germany's finest model (Sorry Heidi!) Miss Julia Stegner.
Always looking like a babe and not a slave, relaxed and stylish in her own threads and not looking like she's dripping in head to toe designer (snooze) She wears labels with her own unique twist and never looks like she's being WORN instead of being the WEARER.
