Leo Caillard & Alexis Persani - Street Stone (2012)
“Caillard photographed the statues in the buff and then used his friends as models for the flannels, cuff jeans, and Ray Bans that the statues would wear. Persani then combined them to create a startlingly natural-looking series.”
they look so hipster
I love this image so much.
I’ve seen some women who are offended by this and say it’s ridiculous that her cleavage is showing and things of that sort.
Personally, I think it’s great.
Why should we have an image of a women with her hair tied up and flexing her muscles like she’s a man? (not that that isn’t great too!) In a way it suggests that when our hair is down, our breasts are visible and we wear (GASP) lipstick, we’re somehow lesser than men? We can do it! We can be feminine and successful.
You see what I’m saying here, ladies?
You don’t have to lose your femininity. Being feminine is great. Being masculine is great. Strength is not limited to one way of being.
Art vs. Nature by Valerie Hegarty
Valerie’s art is the result of tortured toiling with oil paintings and wooden frames which are then chucked outside and left exposed to the cruel claw of Nature, her work rotted and overgrown from neglect, the result of the Earth reclaiming the materials we have temporarily hijacked.
