Anna Ósk Erlingsdóttir | Onlineportfolio Claire Mallett: Bodies and Shadows More and more are women shooting nudes these days which is a refreshing perspective on an age old subject matter. I’m not sure how the interpretation of the female form differs when shot from a female perspective, but perhaps less sexual and more based on beauty. Los Angeles photographer, Claire Mallet has been exploring the female form for many years, and will open an exhibition of her work tonight at the Duncan Miller Projects Gallery in Los Angeles as part of the Verge Collective. Claire was born and raised in the English countryside and fell in love in photography as a teenager after receiving an Olympus camera for Christmas. Shameless Shameless is a collection of photographs that pay homage to a golden time of movie making in Hollywood known as “Pre-code”. During the pre-code era females in particular were portrayed in a magnificent manner. Posts on Lenscratch may not be reproduced without the permission of the Lenscratch staff and the photographer.
Helen Lyon - Stephanie Hoppen Fine Art Gallery Helen Lyon’s photographs of women are both beautiful and arresting at once. Their small scale, muted colours and incongruous focus enables Lyon to portray a glimpsed intimacy. They are ethereal and glamorous works, the image of pared down antiqued luxury. Lyon has worked as a fashion photographer for many leading style magazines including Harper’s Bazaar and her work has appeared in titles such as Vanity Fair. Lyon’s Mixed Media works are hand printed onto watercolour paper in editions of only five.

Traditional Pinup Photos with Splashes of Milk as Clothes Captured with High-Speed Photography Inspired by the classic pin-ups of the 1940’s and 1950’s, photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz came up with a current version of those iconic posters. The twist introduced by the London based lensman was to use a highly unusual substance to cloth his models. Wieczorkiewicz used milk, (yes the kind you get from cows) along with high speed photography to capture the drink while being poured over his scantily clad (or near naked) models. He snapped hundreds of photos of every pose while pouring actual milk over the ladies, producing some unbelievable shots. All of the images of milk splashing on these women are real, with each of the milk ‘dresses” worn by the pretty models produced thru a layering process using dozens of different photographs. Wieczorkiewicz shares some of the action behind the scenes on his blog: Milky Pinups, aims at replicating those popular pin-ups of that bygone era, and does so quite convincingly, adding an original element through milk in place of clothes.

Trained and dressed as humans to ask for money to passersby, as is an old Asian tradition, these monkeys have now become real objects, even wearing doll heads to accent mimicry, turning them into real living toys… A cruel phenomenon that leaves a strong sense of unease… Images © Perttu Saska / via annette pehrsson / blog
