Painted Ladies by Barbara Cole

Barbara Cole's Painted Ladies series blurs the line between paintings and photographs. Influenced by a painting by Lucien Freud, she began experimenting with an SX-70 Polaroid camera to perfect her technique. She created these photos by playing with studio lighting and manipulating the surface image to add dimension and the painterly quality.

Sleep Elevations by Maia Flore

There's a magical quality to this series by Maia Flore. The women in these shots peacefully sleep while a different object keeps them floating in the sky. If these women were awake, they would probably be freaking out. Instead, they are in a peaceful state where dreams come to life.

By the Sea by Remi Rebillard

Remi Rebillard mixes sexuality and the sea with this provocative series. Each shot incorporates a shot of the sea blended with a provocative, often mysterious, shot of a woman. I can't help but feel there's a deeper meaning behind these shots.

Ziegfeld Follies Girls by Alfred Cheney Johnston

Ziegfeld Girls were the showgirls from Florenz Ziegfeld's theater shows known as the Ziegfeld Follies, which were based on the Folies Bergère of Paris.

This set features the portraits of Alfred Cheney Johnston, who is known for taking portraits of the Ziegfield girls as well as other actors/actresses of the 1920s/1930s. If you are interested in the stories of these girls or want to see more portraits of Ziegfield girls, you should get Jazz Age Beauties: The Lost Collection of Ziegfeld Photographer Alfred Cheney Johnston from Amazon.

You should also check out First Decade of Decadence by Esteban Palazuelos and Vanity Fair 1953 Photography by Mark Shaw. You can definitely see the inspiration they drew from Johnston's photos.

Crinoline Flower by Daryl Banks

This series by Daryl Banks is beautiful in both its style and simplicity. Each photo is simply a shot of a woman wearing a crinoline dress made to look like a flower in bloom. The photos are both sharp in contrast and detail and have great lighting. The black background helps to keep your focus on the subject. Each shot a truly a thing of beauty.
