I like this photo spread of model Brian Shimansky for the most recent issue of OUT magazine. [Click to enlarge.]
Brian was photographed by David Roemer and styled by Christopher Campbell.
Yeah, like half of the rest of America, I’m in love with this photo for several reasons. You know what I’ll be watching tonight!
For about six years I’ve referred to Jensen Ackles as my “TV husband.” I like him, in part, because he’s such a dork.
In the spirit of tonight’s Opening Ceremonies, here is a photo shoot called The Olympians. It was shot for Papercut Magazine by Joanna Kustra.
All photos in this spread by Joanna Kustra. You can see more of the series here.
Here’s one more naked athlete for ESPN magazine’s, The Body Issue (rounding out my trilogy of posts and joining pro football player Rob Gronkowski and Olympic gymnast Danell Leyva). This time, it’s ice hockey player Brad Richards getting naked.
This shot is by photographer Richard Phibbs, who I’ve also featured on this blog. [Click to enlarge]
I installed an app on my new phone called Flipboard that lets me flip through stories related to art, photography, news and design. Yesterday at lunch, I was “flipping” and I found a link to this photo series, which completely blows me away.
From the source story:
The mind can create all kinds of strange scenarios when we are asleep. In this series entitled Surreal-ity, photographer Kylie Woon brings those mind-bending stories and dreamy scenes to life. Conveying all kinds of dramatic emotions, including loss, fear, anger, and restlessness, Woon creates self-portraits where she floats, flips, and flies across each frame in seemingly impossible arrangements.

Here’s a link to a Tumblr page “dedicated to photographers that feel that it’s okay to steal other’s work and post it as their own.”
I only hope the offending photographers are all made aware of their inclusion. If I were a sheriff in the Wild West, I’d run people out of town for doing this!
