Dang. It’s 11:26 pm and now I can’t sleep.  I wish I saw these photos by Eolo Perfido in the morning. They would’ve totally cheered me up.

Artist Stephan Zirwes photographed the world from 10,000 feet in the air and put the images to a soundtrack. The result is gorgeous.

They’re just like us!

These photographs from German artist Anna Skladmann’s LITTLE ADULTS series capture the children of Russia’s richest oligarchs. They make for a fascinating, creepy, voyeuristic look at childhoods gone very wrong. And you have to wonder. If this is how the kids look, how much worse are the parents?

During WWII, the French fashion industry staged an exhibition featuring the works of the major French designers of the day. The purpose of the exhibit was to show the world that the French spirit battled on.

The exhibit featured 230 dolls clothed in couture works of designers such as Lanvin, Schiaparelli, and Balmain. A resounding success, the exhibit travelled around the world, but the dolls disappeared shortly after.

Until 1990. When the dolls were rediscovered and returned to Paris.

Photographer David Seidner captured the amazing creativity of French fashion with a fresh nudge, nudge, wink, wink. His photographs are currently on display at the International Center of Photography in NYC.
