For women everywhere who grew up with Disney princesses, at one time or another have been disappointed to find out that “happily ever after” is a very rare occurrence, and even then life cannot be consistently easy or good without a few hardships. I feel that a small part of me is avenged through Dina Goldstein’s harshly realistic series “Fallen Princesses.” In this series, Disney’s version of princesses find themselves introduced to the real world, and battling a world their previous audience live in. Everything from a stressful married life, obesity, depression, illness, etc. Just like everyone else they must address their conflict, and confront whatever the outcome may be.
Meet Issei Sagawa, a 4 foot 9″, Japanese, college educated, and self professed pornographer, cannibal, and necrophiliac. This insane nut killed a young girl, ate her flesh for 48 hours, was caught red handed, fully confessed, and then was set free. Now he’s making money off of his story. Crazy right? Watch this mind blowing documentary and find out how he did it!
I am really enjoying Marcel van Eeden’s work. I am particularly amused by his A Cutlet Vauderville Show in which he depicts two pieces of meat performing song. Marcel van Eeden was born in 1956 in The Hague, Netherlands.
Using only white pencil and black paper, Bette Burgoyne creates nature inspired illustrations in the form of whispy white lines. Although dark and mysterious, her work is really beautiful.
I’m the last person to be a huge fan of airbrushed shirts, but Kerry D’Noit’s shirts have something to them. I’d gladly rock a cyclops pizza shirt any day!
Swiss photographer Matthieu Lavanchy likes to create his own subject matter. Everything from still lives, to installations, collaborations and costumes so that a room just can’t be a room anymore, but becomes an area of performance.
