i was taking in this seemingly picturesque scene of a nice house with a winding driveway surrounded by rolling lawns, and as my eyes scanned the image only then did i notice the ominous clouds of pollution from a factory in the distance. this is the dark undercurrent that runs through daniel shea‘s ongoing photographic series called plume:
plume is a photographic exploration of southeast ohio and its unusually dense concentration of coal-fired power plants. the project serves as a follow-up to the work i made in 2007 in appalachia, removing mountains, which focused on mountaintop removal, a particularly pervasive form of coal mining. plume follows this coal up river to ohio, where it is being burned to generate electricity.
oh man, i am in love with these chairs that heather aka skinny laminx had reupholstered in her amazing new orla fabric. flip, what i would give to have an entire couch done in the black & white print… you can purchase at her etsy
all images skinny laminx
it is not often that you see street style photos of a model wearing something other than skin tight jeans or teeny tiny shorts (why shouldn’t they, i suppose?) that’s why i love these shots of frida gustavsson wearing a classic vintage dress that actually goes past her knees… and has long sleeves to boot. demure can be sexy, ladies.
these are oil paintings. p-a-i-n-t-i-n-g-s. by new york based israeli artist yigal ozieri
i know perving over stuff at net-a-porter is just about as pointless as walking into a stella mccartney or chloé store and pretending i’m going to buy something, but i simply can’t help myself.
