Problems can be big in a small world

Posted in Art, Fashion, Fun, Photography by stylecouch on November 30, 2009

But a small world can be also more funny and  cosy as you can see in the art work of the French artist and photographer Vincent Bousserez called “Plastic Life” and shows in the meanwhile 80 photographs. Inspired by the world of miniature trains, he always carries the mini characters around with him so he can take a when an idea springs to mind. Trust me it is very difficult to give you an appetizer of 4 photographs, because they are so wonderful therefore visit his flickr set and take your on view.

With a little bit of creativity you can create wonderful things with long cables.

CARTOPHILY FROM A NON-POLITICALLY CORRECT TIME

Posted in Uncategorized by stylecouch on November 25, 2009

There was a time where cigerette packages were not full of horribel warnings but beautiful cards for collectors with the passion for cartophily – the hobby of collecting cigarette cards! Sport and cigarettes might not be the perfect combination, however these cards from the 1930s are gorgeous – I would buy the cigarettes just to get the cards… but I guess it would not work in these politiacally correct times?

Accessoires as a model

Posted in Art, Fashion, Photography by stylecouch on November 24, 2009

This three photos can just be an appetizer for the wonder work of Bela Borsordi. He studied fine art and graphic design with a great interest in psychology but often incorporated photography in his projects. When his friends started working at magazines and asked him to take photographs for them, Borsodi became more interested in photography. Thanks Bela for this decision! Many more great things you will find on his website

Should that tell us something? Is the world crying?

Posted in Art, Photography by stylecouch on November 24, 2009

Marine photographer and environmental lecturer Michael Nolan captured the pictures while on an annual voyage to observe the largest icecap in Norway Austfonna on July 16. He said the image looked just like mother nature in tears, “as if she was crying about our inability to reduce global warming”. So whatever you can imagine to wipe away the tear drops – do it!

STYLISH PETS

Posted in Fashion by stylecouch on November 23, 2009

Imagine that Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler and Viktor+Rolf would use animals instead of models on the catwalks…or that your cat would put a Marni necklace on its wishing list for Christmas.  At least it looks cool in the fashion illustrations made by the Selby

After I had posted about Simon Evans ‘Everything I have‘ I was stumbling now on quite similar artwork, which is also very impressive! In this case we are talking about the Swedish artist Helga Steppan, which has organized all the things that belongs to her into colours and created her artwork which is called ‘See Through’, which ends up by 11 amazing monochrome still life photographies.
