The Taliban shooting of 14-year-old girls’ education rights activist Malala Yousafzai has united Pakistanis in their condemnation of the attack and their support for Malala. Protests and vigils have been held around the country, with some protestors declaring, “I am Malala,” and others carrying a banner reading, “We want our daughters to be like Malala.” Pakistan’s president, prime minster, and political leaders joined ...

  We rarely think about how our mindless consumption affects the lives of creatures without a voice. On Midway Island, a remote cluster of islands miles from mainland human interface, albatrosses have taken a serious hit. Chris Jordan began photographing the thousands of birds that were dying on the islands, a result of their innocent feeding on lethal plastic waste in the Pacific Ocean. Jordan blurs the line between memorial ceremony and abstract art with his ... Read More
It’s come to my attention that the BUST blog is in serious need of some cat lovin’! Here to fix that urgent dilemma is Etsy user Kate Funk and her kitschy kitty greeting cards. Every card features Kate’s feline friend, AC, impersonating dozens of icons in a variety of scenarios that are ten thousand times cuter (yes, that’s absolutely a real statistic) when a cat is the star. You’ll find AC looking fierce as Dracula, Jaws, the Loch Ness Monster, a ... Read More
Masked under hair and everyday objects, is Mitsuko Nagone. But Nagone isn’t just playing hide-and-seek for fun (although it might appear that way). Her self-portrait series, “I Am More Than My Face,” seeks to underscore the dysmorphia of the media generating our identities.  "With this project, I intend to create myself, instead of finding my identity," Nagone states. "People often ask themselves, 'Who am I?' However...the definition of ... Read More
New York photographer Leland Bobbé's project “Half Drag” has sprung into full fruition. Just this past March, he photographed drag queen Sabel Scities with drag makeup on half of his face and au natural on the other. Bobbé posted the stunning portrait online, stating that he had four more different photos in the same style and that his goal was to try and see where these might take him. Only a few months later, the project ... Read More
Have you ever heard anyone sneer the annoying phrase “Take a picture, it’ll last longer?" Well, we’re pretty glad the ladies in the films featured in the exhibition “Women and Their Cameras” listened! Starting tomorrow, August 3rd, the Rubin Museum of Art in New York will be screening a series of iconic films that all feature various cool gals taking snapshots. The series kicks off with the 1978 thriller Eyes of Laura Mars, starring ... Read More
Some novels are so enthralling you can become completely engrossed in the world the author has created, and for graphic designer and photographer Dinah Fried, this holds true right down to what the characters ate for dinner. In her series “Fictious Dishes,” Fried recreates iconic meals eaten by main characters from The Catcher in the Rye, Oliver Twist, The Girl With a Dragon Tattoo, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and Moby Dick. How many of them do ... Read More
What a breathtaking view: The sky, lightly coated with dollops of clouds, the setting sun creating pretty shadowy streaks across the sandy landscape, and that nice gigantic pair of…legs? This was basically my reaction upon seeing the above collage from Carl E. Smith’s National Parks collection. Using snippets straight out of high fashion magazines, the artist and graphic designer incorporates a taste of glitzy fashion into a variety of gorgeous, ... Read More
If you’re into fashion blogs, you may be familiar with Rhiannon Leifheit of the wonderful, vintage-inspired "Liebemarlene." Blogging for years, she’s been featured on multiple websites and graced the pages of many magazines, including our very own back in 2008. Liebemarlene is one of the first fashion blogs I've read, and I’ve been a follower ever since. While she does post wonderful collections, outfits, and photo shoots, Leifheit also writes ... Read More
  From women on birth control being publicly referred to as “sluts,” to Michigan representative Lisa Brown being silenced on the House floor after referencing her vagina during an abortion debate, I think it’s safe to say the 2012 election season has been confusing, if not downright disturbing, for many women (and like-minded men). Yet, while comment boxes across the internet are blowing up about these issues and everyone tries to toss ... Read More
