Photographing Nudes with Sam Haskins

Erotica // Wednesday, February 04, 2015

Some of his most notable and influential work was seen in a 1962 book called Five Girls, a study in black and white of the nude female form, and a 1965 book Cowboy Kate which was an adventures photo essay of a model, her hat, and the Wild West. Both captured "the era's sexual freedom and independence," launching his career as a commercial and fashion photographer.

How to Stick Out Like a Severed Thumb

Design // Wednesday, February 04, 2015
Justin Poulsen knows how to make sure his promotional materials get noticed. For his 2015 mailing, the Toronto-based photographer included an incredibly realistic and painfully (in a good way) literal interpretation of a thumb drive. Using silicon, the artist created a series of severed fingers, each handcrafted and painted. Kudos Justin, kudos.
