The 2015 Pirelli Calendar ~ By Steven Meisel (NSFW)

 It's out! The 2015 Pirelli Caendar ~ In the 42 years since its inception, the Italian tire company’s marketing tool goes far beyond its time-keeping duties — its a fusion of provocative imagery from major photographers, top models, and yes, plenty of sex appeal. (Taking a cue from Pirelli’s key material, the models are all decked out in some seriously NSFW rubber outfits.) My new Pirelli winter tires are fantastic btw!

1000 Poses by model Coco Rocha and Photographer Steven Sebring

In a new book, “Study of Pose,” which includes an introduction by Jean Paul Gaultier, Sebring has shot the adroit Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha, known as the “Queen of Pose,” in 1,000 different positions. Sebring captured each of Rocha’s postures — from the sultry stance of a rock star to the pointed pirouette of a prima ballerina — using a setup he calls "the Rig", which consists of 100 cameras arranged in a circle that allows for a 360-degree view of each moment.

Two of My Favourite Cities ~ Paris and NYC ~ DiptychTimelapse by Happy Parisian MATEL

"Paris & NYC, like many large cities, have a lot in common; transport, infrastructure, national monuments. I wanted to explore not only these comparisons but also the differences, in order to expose the beauty and individuality of each. What you cannot deny is the vibrancy and explosion of character each city has and I thought split-screen with time-lapse would be a good way to help convey this." MATEL Shot with canon 5D mark III

Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich.~ Iconic Portraits with John Malkovich subbed in.


At the age of sixteen, upon seeing the work of Irving Penn, Sandro Miller knew he wanted to become a photographer. (I totally get it, Penn is my favourite photographer) Mostly self-taught, Sandro relied on books published by many of the great artists canonized in photographic history.  Through their pictures, he learned the art of composition, lighting and portraiture. More than 30 years later, with clients ranging from Forbes, GQ and Esquire, to American Express, Coca-Cola and BMW, Sandro has secured his place as one of the top advertising photographers worldwide. 

 In 2013, Sandro decided to do a project honoring the men and women whose photographs helped shape his career. After selecting thirty-five images to emulate, Sandro contacted Malkovich, who instantly agreed to participate. When speaking about Malkovich, Sandro states: “John is the most brilliant, prolific person I know. His genius is unparalleled. I can suggest a mood or an idea and within moments, he literally morphs into the character right in front of my eyes. He is so trusting of my work and our process… I’m truly blessed to have him as my friend and collaborator.” (via edelman gallery)
