When it comes to the big leagues of socio-political photojournalism, there are a select handful of artists whose photographs have sparked a revolution. Although you may not have heard of Nick Ut and Dorothea Lange by name, their photographs of children fleeing a napalm attack and a mother living during the great depression respectively have stayed with our society for decades. An up-and-coming photographer, Yana Mazurkevich, has the same passion for capturing the trauma of human destruction. This college junior is the creative mastermind behind...
Six weeks ago, I came across LUST— a posh, immersive fetish event that is hosted at the House of Yes. This unique party invites guests to eat dinner off nude models and features shibari rope tying performances and an interactive wax pouring installation. The party is so inviting that a journalist covering the latest event ended up in a hot tub- naked! Curious, I researched it further and I came across Abby Hertz, the young woman behind LUST. I was interested to learn more about the...
You may have seen Gillian Dreher’s drawings of feminist heroes around the interwebs this year. Dreher, an artist based in Oakland, California, pledged to draw a portrait of a badass lady every day for 100 days. Here’s what she tells us: I started the #100DaysofBadassLadies project in April as part of Elle Luna's #The100DayProject, during which participants do one thing every day for 100 days. I lost my mom to cancer late in 2015 and had been thinking a lot about how strong she was and...
When was the last time you asked someone if they were okay? If you could do something to help them? Did you mean it? As a white woman, it’s too easy to let my life be, well, too easy. I have to push myself to do uncomfortable work and not cower from vulnerable and difficult situations. We all have our own work to do. I sat down with two stunningly fierce black poets from the Bowery Slam Team, Lauren Whitehead and Ashley August, to learn more about...

Even if you aren't familiar with her name, chances are you've encountered artist Signe Pierce's work. Characterized by its use of stunningly saturated neon and lavish, unabashedly feminine color palettes, it’s beautifully provocative and mesmerizing work that’s hard to look away from—whether it be in the form of photography, video art, or performance art, it's work that leaves you aching for a more colorful and aesthetically-pleasing world. After recently seeing (and adoring) the multimedia artist perform here in New York, I had so many questions...
Etheldreda Laing first began taking photos of her daughters when she was 38 years old, using Autochrome, an early color photography process. She processed the photos in a darkroom in her Oxford home and later became known for photos she took of her daughters, Janet and Iris, ages 12 and 7 respectively.  Check out these photos of her daughters Laing took in the garden of her Oxford home in 1908.   More from BUST 20 Beautiful Vintage Photos Of Lady Loving Ladies Christine Osinski's Photographs Show 1980s New York In...
Audrey Hansa is here with her "Bad Girls," a refreshing set of paintings and prints that put to paper actions that are seen as negative when done by a female-identifying person. Drawn from images like those on old matchboxes and vintage ads, Audrey creates her own squad of transgressive women who "are fully aware of what they are doing or have done, and they brandish it." From smoking to heartbreaking to shredding on a guitar, the portrait series hits home with its concepts and the bold,...

I have to just come out and admit it: I’m a cowboy/girl at heart. I grew up in rural Nebraska, in a large family, and each summer we kids were given the choice of a pair of sandals or sneakers. I chose cowboy boots. Inconvenient, yes. Especially running to keep up with the older kids or chase the golden retriever that escaped her pen or make my own escape from the vicious black rooster who patrolled the orchard and acre of vegetables my father grew...
