What it’s like to be a part of the world’s richest 1 percent, in 15 incredible photos

(Paolo Woods and Gabriele Galimberti/Institute 2013) How much do we really know about the world's wealthiest people? We often think we understand the rich because we read tabloids and watch celebrities on TV, says Myles Little, a New York City-based photo editor who has put together a new collection of photographs on the richest 1 percent. But actually, most people know surprisingly little about the world's wealthiest. For example, many people assume the world's top earners are movie stars or athletes — like boxer Floyd Mayweather, who ranked as the top-paid athlete with a respectable $300 million in 2015.

This was just one scene at Anthrocon, the world's largest convention for anthropomorphics, the humanlike animal characters more commonly referred to as "furries. " Anthrocon is the latest stop on Drooker's Conventional Wisdom tour, during which the photographer has brought his lens—and his audience—into the weird and wonderful world of eccentric conventions, from Santas to sexual explorers. We've been following him for a year now, as he accrues imagery for a book-in-progress, and Anthrocon is most certainly one of the highlights. During the 4 July holiday weekend, furries made their way from around the globe to Pittsburgh's David L. Lawrence Convention Center and, according to Drooker, turned it "into a wild kingdom.

Spine-Chilling Photos of Grotesque Clowns (NSFW)

Here, the whimsical facade of funny business is stripped away to reveal the monstrous manifestations of human fear, heartache, and prurience. The project, explains Perfido was influenced in large part by silent film stars like Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, who used their bodies to exaggerate emotional truths that could not be conveyed through speech. For the artist, clowns embody the universal yearning both to entertain and to be entertained, to conceal our insecurities beneath a disguise of wit and merriment.

Ultimately, the clowns’ menace lies in their vulnerability, their depravity in their humanity. All images © Eolo Perfido. Meet The Family: A Series Of Altered Cabinet Cards From 1900s. Cabinet cards are early photos from 1900 or so.

These surreal wood sculptures by Japanese sculptor Yoshitoshi Kanemaki will become so much more impressive once you see how much work it took to make them! For one of his latest sculptures, an otherwise-ordinary girl with 12 faces, Kanemaki created a series of progress photos that show the sculpture’s progress from crude log to finished work of art.
