Artist Travels To Beautiful Locations To Paint The Pattern of His Own Shirt

Art is a difficult topic to dicsuss because it's all a matter of taste; what one person finds beautiful, another person finds vulgur. It's all relative. But you know what isn't as relative? Humor. OK, it is, but what you're about to see is objectivally funny. Artist Hank Schmidt in der Beek and photographer Fabian Schubert have started a project where they travel to beautifully scenic locations, set up an easel and begin to paint. But Hank doesn't paint what he sees. No, he paints the design of the shirt he is wearing, while Fabiamn photographs him doing it. This hysterical take on classic outdoor painting gave us a laugh, so we thought we'd share it with you. Enjoy!

Scantily-Clad Lumberjack Poses For Charity Photo-Shoot

When photographer Chad Castigliano took some photos of his wildland firefighter friend Tim Wilson wielding an ax, wearing nothing but boxer shorts, suspenders, an orange hard hat, he didn't know just how much it would take off. Known as The Whimsical Woodsman, the scantily-clad lumberjack posed for his friend to create a calendar to raise money for charity. The public quickly fell in love with his pursed lips, sultry eyes, and luscious beard. Clearly, it was not caring what people think that helped him pose for this unusual photo shoot, and he certainly proved that confidence is the key to capturing an audience.  Check out his poses below - I know I'd have his calendar on my desk, just for the laughs, of course.

Photographer With Vitiligo Takes Stunning Pictures Of Women With Same Condition

Unfortunately, people tend to stare when they come across anyone who appears to be physically distinctive in some way. It's just human nature, but we unknowingly perpetuate stigmatization of being 'different'. It's not a good thing! Photographer Elisabeth Van Aalderen is trying to create beauty out of our differences, by capturing pictures of women who have Vitiligo (a skin condition that causes patches of skin to lose its pigment cells (melanocytes), resulting in the discoloration of patches in different areas of the body). Seeing the positivity in all types of physical appearances spreads the message to these women and the general public, that everyone is beautiful, no matter what they look like on the outside.

Here are some photographs people took where timing was on their side and allowed them to take the perfectly timed moment.

Bright And Colorful Pictures Of New Yorkers From Behind

New York From Behind is the Instagram account documenting all of the quirky and creatively dressed fashionistas of NYC but from behind. No faces, only heads, backs, and butts. Cast your minds back to less than a month ago when New Yorkers (and the rest of the world) were able to roam around freely, where people had the opportunity to show off their somewhat questionable fashion taste to the world. This account reminds of happier days, where we were able to get close enough to each other to take pictures of such things. Here is a selection of some of NYC's most fashionable and boldly dressed individuals.

Celebrity Photographer Accused of Asking Model for Nude Pics in Exchange for Free Photo Shoot

Yuck. However, this story just gets more muddy when you find out the details. 

Marcus Hyde, is photographer who got his big break after shooting Kim Kardashian. Since then, he's worked with a number of stars, including Ariana Grande, who has since spoken out about this incident. 

The light that lit the fuse comes from Instagram model, Sunnaya, who revealed some disturbing screenshots of her conversation with the photographer. In the screenshots (which you can see here via Sunnaya's Twitter), Marcus is offering Sunnaya a free photo shoot, ONLY if she sends him nudes. And if she wants the photo shoot without sending him nudes? It costs 2k. 

She refused and tried to call Hyde out on Instagram, but Instagram has reportedly flagged the screenshots as 'bullying' with each upload.

Frustrated, Sunnaya has taken to Twitter to share the screenshots, along with other dm's of various models who are sharing their stories about Marcus Hyde. 

Read their stories below:

Vintage Photos Show Victorian Women Proudly Nursing Their Babies

In recent years, mothers have tried to break the wall of nursing publicly.  Sharing breastfeeding selfies and stories all over social media. Yet, they actually are not the first. 

If you scroll down, you'll see photos taken in America in the late 19th and early 20th century. What do they display? Proud new mothers breastfeeding their children in front of the camera. Let's not forget that cameras were no joke back in the day. It was not so easy to just snap a in the moment pic and up load it to social media. It was planned, it was posed and it sparked a fad Victorian mothers using the new technology to pose for portraits while nursing their newborns. 

While wealthy families in the UK and the rest of Europe hired wet nurses, American mothers at the time were proponents of the 'breast is best' approach, it seems. Breastfeeding was a trend that died out in the 1940s with the invention of formula, which doctors encouraged.
