Scout Paré-Phillips is an artist and musician based out of Chelsea, New York, and Baltimore, Maryland. In this fabulous and rather erotic series of photographs, the artist removes the model’s clothing leaving us with fleshy tones and only impressions. The imagination is allowed to run wild with the before and the after. (via)
Yoko Ono needs no introduction. She is a well established art superstar and one of my personal favorites. Ono has a new video called “Make-Up Tips for Men” (made as part of her clothing line for Opening Ceremony). Over “uh-huh”s and a club beat, men are given commands like, “When you see a rainbow in the sky. Breathe it in,” or “Let everything in your room shine and sparkle.” Grooming be damned! (via)

Ryan Schude is an advertising, editorial, and fine-art photographer from Los Angeles. According to the artist, his current hobbies appear to revolve around arbitrary vacations, stand-up comedy, dining out, and Future Islands.

Similar to a movie still, each photo is full of vivid characters, humor, action, and story.
