"Toy Stories" by Gabriele Galimberti

"Toy Stories" by Gabriele Galimberti
Chiwa – Mchinji, Malawi Shot over a period of 18 months, Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti‘s project Toy Stories compiles photos of children from around the world with their prized possesions—their toys. Galimberti explores the universality of being a kid amidst the diversity of the countless corners of the world, saying, “at their age, they are pretty all much the same; they just want to play.” But it’s how they play that seemed to differ from country to country. Galimberti found that children in richer countries were more possessive with their toys and that it took time before they allowed him to play with them (which is what he would do pre-shoot before arranging the toys), whereas in poorer countries he found it much easier to quickly interact, even if there were just two or three toys between them. There were similarites too, especially in the functional and protective powers the toys represented for their proud owners. Stella – Montecchio, Italy Pavel – Kiev, Ukraine

THE ROCKETEER: Riddle Saves the Day in this Betty Page Cosplay For fans of The Rocketeer, it seems the character has been getting a lot more love these past few years. As a result, we get this wonderful cosplay by Riddle, which owes its roots to the Bettie Page version (drawn by Darwyn Cooke for IDW's tribute series). The photo itself was taken by Dru Phillips, with makeup and hair by Thomas Gaddis & Jaiden Gabbana, respectively. A lot of work went into this costume, especially the rocket pack, which you can't see here but is based on the version from the comics. As a big fan of the property and the time period in general, I eat up things like this.

“Spring-Autumn” by Qozop For a series titled “Spring-Autumn,” photographer Qozop, snapped photos of hip, twenty-somethings with their elders, either a parent or a grandparent.
