petrina hicks – gently subverts the pervasive language of photography as it is used in advertising and publicity, creating edgy images that intrigue and disturb. while she primarily works with people, her works transcend the boundaries of portraiture as she finds beauty in perceived imperfections and renders idealized beauty strange.
i caught an old jonathon ross interview of ewan mcgregor this weekend (swoon), but was astounded to see that he had attached his name to a manly man fragrance – and actually went as far as making this ridiculously cheesy advert for it:
now, i love ewan mcgregor and i love bikers & people who go on adventures AND i love men who smell nice and wear leather jackets, but…. come on! super cheese. though i must admit i watched the ad a couple of times (i’m only a woman)
he does look pretty cool though, eh? yes the scarf is a bit gay… plus, what kind of biker wears cologne?
anyway, invariably i found this, which made me feel better:
the scent of adventure in the air…. haha.
