It seems like worldwide ideals of beauty have been all over the news lately. Ester Honig, for example, asked 40 Photoshop techs in 25 different countries to edit her according their culture's standard to prove that there isn't one standard of beauty that extends around the world.
Now, Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc has taken Honig's project to the next level by traveling the world to capture women of all creeds in a series called The Atlas of Beauty. ... Read More

Surprises come in all sizes—some as small as a box full of archived negatives, recounting a female sub-culture in London that was almost forgotten. Meet Ken Russell, who originally wanted to be a ballerina but turned to another kind of art when his father squashed his dream—photography. The freelance photographer-turned-film director soon became known for breaking the rules in his craft, producing some of post-war London's most expressive ... Read More

“Adipose: Of or relating to fat. / Positivity: Characterized by or displaying acceptance or affirmation.”
This is the inspiration for photographer Substantia Jones's incredible photo series, The Adipositivity Project. When Jones first began her project, she knew she wanted to create change, but she didn’t fully grasp what that change would be. It was only once she began photographing women and hearing their stories of body shaming that her goal ... Read More

In 2011, Audra Mulkern was not a photographer. She was not a blogger, not a writer, and definitely not a self-published author—not yet that is. “I always joke that the whole thing kind of developed organically,” she told BUST in a phone interview. What started with a pre-Instagram era iPhone 3G photo series and strange looks from farmers as she snapped shots of their produce has since turned into a successful self-published book, a blog, and an ...

Goo, guts, and bloody insides bare themselves in total messy terror in Jaimie Warren’s latest photo exhibition, Jaimie Warren’s Horrorfest 2015. Definitely accustomed to the wow factor that is her work, we’ve seen (and love) all things Warren especially her series, Celebrities As Food & Food’lebrities, Totally Looks Like, and Whoop Dee Doo—just some of the epic moments of this photographer and performance artist.

Street style blogs are everywhere (The Sartorialist, Street Peeper, and Stil in Berlin are some our personal faves.) They may seem like a modern meme, but actually, street fashion photography has been around much longer—maybe even as long as photography itself. Mashable recently curated some photos by Edward Linley Sambourne, all taken during the Edwardian era in and around Kensington, London, featuring ladies in their amazing #ootd. Anything for ...

Lena Dunham's mother, Laurie Simmons, is an artist known for her work with tiny models (hence Lena's movie Tiny Furniture), and dolls. Her work has evolved over the years from miniatures to life size, and now, real life (modeling a doll's life). You may remember her recent photography set, The Love Doll where a sex doll was posed in normal everyday scenes. This is fairly different.
This set is called Kigurumi, Dollers and How We See.

My first encounter with the work of Chloe Fay Worth Smith came in the form of large mounted color print of a mattress stained with menstrual blood. In a group show at Sarah Lawrence College, the work was magnetic and alluring, its uncomfortable subject matter elevated by its aesthetic beauty. The vision, so ordinary in the context of girlhood humiliations, became unfamiliar through her lens, emerging like the mysterious remains of some remarkable event. The ... Read More

This year has been a landmark one for the band Blondie. Not only have they celebrated their 40th anniversary, released a greatest hits album, Ghosts of Download, and went on a world tour, but now cofounder and guitarist, Chris Stein, has a new photo book out, Me, Blondie And The Advent Of Punk, published by Rizzoli and containing fab photos of the band’s adventures in it’s early days (some never published before!).
There ... Read More

New York Fashion Week kicks off in two days (!!!), but it is not only for the elite, style-forward mavens of Vogue as one may think. Fashion Week is for the creative and the curious as well.
“HA!” you might be thinking. “This girl clearly has never attempted to attend a fashion week show, ever.”
And you’d be right, which is exactly why I’m not going wax poetic about the genius that is Proenza Schouler or Miu Miu ... Read More
