A wonderful set of vintage postcards of Paris.There's something different about vintage postcards that make them feel more authentic than modern day postcards.
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.
A lot of the light art you see consists of creating fun shapes or patterns. Julien Breton's light art, however, consists of very intricately drawn calligraphy. Julien draws the fantastic calligraphy pieces, and they are captured with the help of G.J. Plisson, who takes the photos.
I am absolutely loving this humorous series by father and photographer Dave Engledow. With the help of his wife and adorable daughter Alice Bee, Dave portrays a clueless, sleep-deprived and unsafe father. Each photo features a "World's Best Father" mug, which adds another great element to the project. If you like this series, you can help back the upcoming World's Best Father 2013 Calendar on Kickstarter.
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.
There's something strangely fascinating about these Renaissance costume photographs by Christian Tagliavini. They are odd, intriguing and beautiful all at the same time. I think the abnormally long necks and interesting hats both make the costumes seem odd, but also help draw your attention. If you like these, I also recommend checking out his Dame di Cartone series.
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.
