Mandy Nash. Self portrait
All to often personality is overlooked as the defining aspect of ones style. Mandy is one my dear friends and from the moment i saw her and heard her voice i was instantly hooked! She is the meaning of fun, cause she makes it where ever she goes. She is loud, honest, loyal, and wilder than shit! If you have a muse like this in your life, hold on to them tight and pay close attention, cause they will better you.
In the early morning of July 1st 1908 in Siberia, there was a great explosion. Eyewitnesses close to the explosion reported the loud thundering sound moving east to north. The sounds were accompanied by a shock-wave that knocked people to the ground and broke windows hundreds of miles away. The explosion knocked over an estimated 80 million trees over 830 square miles. Estimates of the energy of the blast to be about 1000 times as powerful as the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. It is estimated that the earthquake from the blast would have measured 5.0 on the Richter scale, which was not yet developed at the time. Since there was no discernible impact zone, meteor impact was ruled out, theories for the cause range from black holes, anti-matter, to a UFO crash. Today the more popular theory is whether it was a comet or meteor, it exploded 8 or 9 km over the earth’s surface, from immense built up pressure from traveling over 21,000mph into our atmosphere. Later in 1966 Guiness book of world records calculated that if it were to hit earth 4 hours and 47 min later it would have completly destroyed St. Petersburg, Russia! They say the earth gets these mid-sized hits once every 300 years or so. 100 down 200 more to go!
This German photographer currently lives in Paris and Berlin. She holds a degree in photography from the HGBLVA of Vienna. These shots create much room for the imagination…she doesn’t have much of an online presence but you can contact her through her website. She is part of the 23rd annual International festival of Fashion and Photography.
Lets face it, weddings are straight up cheese! You gather your family in their horrible outfits and stand in the middle of the tackiest church you can find in a desperate attempt to “make memories”. The photographers Annabel + Dorothee have what it takes to change (at least) the way these memories are documented.
Sneakers, and spray paint, graffiti, and sweaters, girls getting clean minus the string…these are a few of my favorite things. A collage by Mass Appeal shows some amazing old photos, dead stock Nike trainers, Playboy sneakers, matching pimp teddy bear sweaters, and a sweet tan line. Here is a little bit of heaven for you!
I’m pretty much blown away by this mans work. I am usually very skeptical about the photographers that think just because they can make a shot of a beautiful naked woman look good they are skilled! i mean really? how hard is it to make a gorgeous girl look good? But dare i say it, this mans an artist!
