Sandro Giordano creates and photographs bizarre falls and accidents. “Everything started last summer after a bad accident with my bike, after that a friend of mine ended up in hospital with a broken leg. We both held on tight to an object as we hurt ourselves. I thought there was something very dangerous in our behavior relatively to our accidents.” Keep reading at DIYPhotography…

A Girl named Elastika by Guillaume Blanchet

She’s young, dreamy and fearless, she drives cars way too fast, she’s also a yamakasi. She likes adventure, fireworks and unrelenting seas. From the day I conceived her, I’ve been a worried father. And a proud one too.

‘Ô les mains’ by Babak Hosseiny & Jeffrey Vanhoutte

Jeffrey-Vanhoutte-photography-1

Multi-media artist Babak Hosseiny has collaborated with photographer Jeffrey Vanhoutte in a provocative photo manipulation series entitled ‘Ô les mains’. “The original idea for this project was conceived around a decade ago after reading this philosophical statement by Wittgenstein. From this point onwards Babak Hosseiny imagined a series of drawings of situations where hands are no longer only hands, but become the physical embodiments of the obstacles, wishes or fears of the individual. A few years later Babak met Jeffrey with whom he shared his ambition to bring this project to life using photography to reinforce the impact of the images created. Jeffrey was won over by the idea and brought his sensitivity and mastery of photography to the project, which lead to the creation of a series of around
ten images. “Ô les mains” is the first exhibition produced together by Babak Hosseinyand
Jeffrey Vanhoutte.”

Anyway, Simpsons fans, prepare to be thrilled, shocked or profoundly embarrassed. Because for all you Moes out there, here’s a flamin’ Marge. Italian comic artist Alexsandro Palombo, who is well known in the fashion world, apparently, for his satirical depictions of haute couture, has created a 2014 calendar full of extravagant images of Marge – and Homer – posing in sadomasochist gear in the high-fashion style of the photographer Helmut Newton. So you always wanted to see Springfield’s suburban icon in a black leather number slit to the thigh? Or naked with big bazoomas? Get a loada this, playdudes.

Little People Project by Slinkachu

All-Star+Nobody+-+blog+1a

The ‘Little People Project’ started in 2006. It involves the remodelling and painting of miniature model train set characters, which I then place, photograph and leave on the street. It is both a street art installation project and a photography project. The street-based side of my work plays with the notion of surprise and I aim to encourage city-dwellers to be more aware of their surroundings. The scenes I set up, more evident through the photography and the titles I give these scenes aim to reflect the loneliness and melancholy of living in a big city, almost being lost and overwhelmed. But underneath this, there is always some humour. I want people to be able to empathise with the tiny people in my works. Slinkachu
