Centenarians by Anastasia Pottinger

After a 101 year old woman offered to sit for a nude portrait session with photographer Anastasia Pottinger, Pottinger conceived of a project called Centenarians, through which she is photographing models who are at least 100 years old.

“This body of work was born out of the opportunity I had to photograph a 101 year old woman who volunteered, on her own accord, to model nude for me. It was merely an exercise in documenting her form in a beautiful way. My only instructions from her were to make sure she was not identifiable in the images. She was willing to do anything I asked of her. 

When I later reviewed the images on my computer, I knew I was looking at something very special. It was when I began exhibiting the work that the idea to continue the series was born. The response to the images has been remarkable. Viewers are visibly moved by what they are looking at. Whether it’s wondering, “is this what I’m going to look like?” or remembering a loved one – the response seems to be universally emotional on some level. 

The first question I get from everyone seems to be, “How did you get these models?” The first one came to me. The others have certainly been more difficult, although all of them have come to me through a known resource like a granddaughter or family friend”, Anastasia Pottinger says.

Eleven Years by Jen Davis

A photographer’s exploration of her own insecurities, ideals of beauty and love and intimacy in the form of a series of self-portraits taken over 11 years eventually inspired her to lose 110 lb.

The photographs Jen Davis began taking of herself in 2002 have been gathered in a new book, 11 Years, which shows her journey in the form of deeply intimate self-portraits.

It was after her series had received critical acclaim and had been showcased around the world in 2011 that Davis realized that her body had not really changed over the years – and neither had she.

Meet Alex – the “Stalker Photographer”.

“I was introduced to Alex about a year ago through a mutual friend. I had heard about a “stalker photographer” from a couple people and was pretty intrigued. After about a two month process of trying to get her to sit down with me she finally agreed to tell her story. I was pretty blown away. Seeing the world through her eyes has been a unique experience to say the least. Her photos are unreal. Can’t say I completely agree with her craft but its very beautiful in its own way. If you’d like to see more of her work, go here, director MP Cunningham says.

It’s so hard to understand why some Americans buy weapons for private use. Let alone for their kids!

Dutch photographer An-Sofie Kesteleyn went to America with this very wonder, after seeing the tragic story of a 5-year old boy in Kentucky who killed his 2-year old sister with a practice rifle.

“I really wanted to know what parents and kids thought about having the guns,” she tells Wired. “For me it was hard to understand because we don’t have a gun culture at all. The only people with guns [in the Netherlands] are the police.”

An-Sofie Kesteleyn approached the American families at gun ranges and asked to photograph their kids. Not surprisingly, in the three weeks she spent traveling the country, only 15 families said yes.

In this series “My First Rifle” An-Sofie Kesteleyn shows young children holding their child-sized and often brightly colored practice rifles in their bedrooms – a place Kesteleyn thought would remind us of their youth. She also had each child write down what they were most afraid of, something that they could use the gun to defend themselves against.

Celebrity by Chunlong Sun: Dictators with Plush Animals

Celebrity by Chunlong Sun_dictators with plushies

Chunlong Sun is specialized in retouching. He is based in Beijing, China – and he’s created this series, he calls “Celebrity“. Here we see 5 dictators; Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Muammar Khadafi aka Muammar al-Gaddafi, Mobutu Sesé Seko, and Saddam Hussein – with plush animals.

To create the images, Chunlong Sun had Zhou Yulong take photographs of some friends wearing uniforms and holding the plush animals. He then took the faces of the leaders from other photos and fairly seamlessly made composites through his retouching skills.

In Malaysia they breed a bird called the Ayam Seramas, an ornate chicken raised not for its meat but purely for its appearance. These chickens not only have decorative plumage. They possess the ability to strike quite extraordinary – and funny looking – poses.

Photographer and visual artist Ernest Goh photographs animals and wildlife. He made a whole books about the strange whole of chicken beauty pageants in Malaysia. Yes, beauty pageants.
