In her newest Craigslist advertisement, July searches for portrait subjects living in the Los Angeles area. The photo series will explore “why women dress the way they do” and will feature women of various races, ages, and ... Read More

Meena Chaudhary - elephant rider Beginning in 2011, photojournalist Arantxa Cedillo spent several years in Nepal. During her time in the Southeast Asian country, Cedillo heard countless stories about the discrimination women in the country faced. This sparked a project entitled “Broken Rules”, which focuses on the women of Nepal who overcame the oppression and inherent sexism of the country. Set against the beautifully hand-painted backdrops of ... Read More
Amelia Earhart Although I'm only 22-years-old, I've always wondered what lessons I would teach my daughter if I one day choose to have children. The top three fall along the lines of love yourself unconditionally, be kind, and don't take shit from anyone (it's a work in progress). During my daily internet trolling, I came across another amazing lesson that I could teach my imaginary daughter some day: be inspired - not by Disney princesses or super models - ... Read More
Between 1908 and 1924, a photographer named Lewis Hine worked for the National Child Labor Committee, documenting the lives of child workers across the country. Now, the Library of Congress has collected more than 5,000 of these photographs, along with the story behind each one. Though your mind may be stuck in "Newsies" mode right now, the collection actually reveals a forgotten gamut of young women and girls in the strangest and most shocking of ... Read More
Have you ever noticed how, in classic portrait photography, people of different genders are shot differently? A quick google image search of mainstream women’s magazine titles will reveal cover girls, mostly shot from above, looking down coyly. Do the same for a popular men’s magazine, and come up with images of men shot from below and looking at the world straight ahead. Part of what I love about BUST’s photographers is that they subvert this ... Read More

Victims write quotes or stories from their assault on white poster board, and Brown photographs them holding the signs. The project has gained media and Internet attention; Brown herself has taken over 300 ... Read More
Remember that time you were punk? Like, really, really into the idea: rejecting every established norm, living at the bar, and just doing things to do them. Although I came into the world two years before the Berlin Wall was destroyed, when I discovered punk culture in the late 90s, almost every idea I encountered stuck with me—the rejection of the majority, the music industry, the establishment,  utopian fantasies and, primarily, just being myself, ...

Heidi Holmberg by Ashlee Wells Jackson   We all know that pregnant women are beautiful. Many mothers-to-be sit for professional portrait photographs so that they can remember their glowing, fertile bodies as time goes by. These are images that they will one day show their children. My mother is not one of these mothers; we never took a traditional family photograph. Photographs of my mother that I’ve found over the years have all been post-pregnancy ... Read More
  Growing up, Jane Goodall was my absolute heroine. Listening to her speak about her experiences with chimpanzees was so incredibly moving to me as a little girl; I felt that the creatures she had lived with were the embodiments of pure generosity, emotional truth, and tenderness. Luckily, a few rare and special photographs can capture the depth of the humanity of species like the chimpanzee and others who share so much of our DNA.    Photographer ... Read More
