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 ever-growing look into the lives of female farmers.

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.
Check out some of the photos below (and freaky Pennywise look-a-like above) and get the full on, horror filled experience here. Read More

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. Read More

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.
The above photo is from the How We See section of the series. Read More
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 image remained emblazoned in my memory, alternately unnerving and liberating me from the abashment that stirred within. Read More

This year has been a landmark one for the band Blondie.

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 — but instead, focus on the fashion that is so very you. Read More

Zayn Malik’s Instagram is no longer private and my heart has burst into a thousand pieces.
I’m a 21-year-old woman. I am also the biggest Directioner in existence. And while I’m a Directioner across the board, I have a very VERY special place in my heart for Zayn Malik.
I’ve been basically betrothed to Zayn Malik since I first witnessed him and his buddies in their “What Makes You Beautiful” music video in 2011. I fell head over heels with his tight white t-shirt, drop crotch khaki pants and faux-hawk. Read More
