"Auto-Complete Truth" Campaign from UN Women. Here's a simple and powerful campaign idea from UN Women using real suggested search terms from Google's autocomplete feature.

"Auto-Complete Truth" Campaign from UN Women

Campaign creator Christopher Hunt, head of art for Ogilvy & Mather Dubai, offers this summary: “This campaign uses the world's most popular search engine (Google) to show how gender inequality is a worldwide problem. The adverts show the results of genuine searches, highlighting popular opinions across the world wide web.” Each ad's fine print says "actual Google search on 09/03/13. " While Google users in different countries are likely to get different results, a quick test shows that several of these suggested terms definitely come up in U.S. searches.

Since its creation, autocomplete has become a popular device for social debate and even inspired a recent epic visual from xkcd, but these ads do a stellar job driving home the daunting fact that enough people around the world share these vile opinions that Google has come to expect them.

"Domestic Bliss" By Susan Copich

Después de pasar años como una abnegada madre, prestando constantemente y casi de forma exclusiva atención a sus niñas, haciendo infinidad de fotografías en las que nunca jamás aparecía ella misma, a la ex bailarina Susan Copich se le ocurrió la idea de este proyecto fotográfico único, pensó que podía girar la cámara hacia sí misma, de recuperar su identidad, y de "mostrar una serie de honestidad emocional".

Cada una de las imágenes de la serie Felicidad Doméstica tiene lo que Susan llama una "vuelta de tuerca de las tinieblas". El toque tenebroso es su elemento más audaz, que desafía nuestra percepción normal de la felicidad familiar. (1937) "Our Lily, Arum Lily" by Stefan Lorant.

Deddeh Howard, who grew up in Liberia and now lives in Los Angeles, didn't have an easy start when she tried to break into the modeling business. Several agencies told her 'thanks but no thanks', explaining that they already had enough black models on their rosters. To draw more attention to the need for diversity in the modeling and fashion industries, and call for visibility of black models, Deddeh recreated some of today's biggest designer campaigns, taking the place of stars like Gisele Bundchen, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Kate Moss.

National Geographic's Antique Autochromes of Women. In 1907, brothers Auguste and Louis Lumière developed the first commercially viable form of color photography.

National Geographic's Antique Autochromes of Women

Their process, called autochrome, used glass plates coated with millions of microscopic color filters, each one consisting of—believe it or not—a dyed, powdered grain of potato starch. The starch grains essentially transformed the plate into a stained-glass window made of red, green, and blue dots, which filtered the light shining onto a light-sensitive emulsion. Up close, the resulting photographs looked like dots of various shades of red, blue, and green. But from a distance, viewers’ eyes blended the colors into muted, dreamlike tones—making autochromes look like pointillist paintings. "That's one thing that's unique about the autochromes that you don't see with modern photos—that beautiful painterly look," says Bill Bonner, image collection archivist at National Geographic.

Photographers of the time gushed over autochromes. (1949) Audrey Hepburn with chorus girls from the show "Sauce Tartare" on the roof of London's Cambridge Theatre. Untitled by Sofia Ajram.
