“It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia”: Stunning Mid-Century Mugshots From The City Of Brotherly Love

Sometimes mugshots look like portraits. In this gallery of faces from 1950 and 1960s Philadelphia, photo collector Mark Michaelson picks mugshots that make us stop, look and keep looking.

“In Boston they ask, how much does he know? In New York, how much is he worth? In Philadelphia, who were his parents?” – Mark Twain

Punks, sneaks, mooks and miscreants. Hookers, stooges, grifters and goons. Men and women, elderly and adolescent, rich and poor, but mostly poor. These are the Least Wanted. Their portraits make up a small part of Mark Michaelson’s collection of over 10,000 American mugshots from the 1870s to the 1960s.

Created as utilitarian instruments, and meant to be destroyed when obsolete, they survive as remnants of a bygone era of hard-copy originals, extraordinary visual windows on the past, and riveting physical artifacts, often accompanied by municipal ephemera. They are glued to cards and manuscripts, typed on and rubber stamped. Each suspect has been measured and fingerprinted, documented and classified.

Bored, sheepish, proud, coy, tough, defiant, bounced, bloodied, bruised, broken and innocent faces–innocent until proven guilty–stare back at the camera with unmistakable individuality. This is central casting for the Late Late Show of unvarnished reality, and the lineup is full of small-timers, those who have fallen through the cracks.

Each subject, each image, is a person, a portrait, a trace, a crime, a clue, a moment, an expression, a frame, a mustache, a mother, a father, a son or a daughter. Each image is evidence, documentation. A record of people and of stories dismissed by history and rescued here. A century of American souls, filed and forgotten, until now.

Athletes From Around The World Strip Off For A Saucy Charity Calendar

Cross-fit champions, ballerinas and horse riders are among the 18 sportsmen and women who showed off their toned physiques for the project, which was photographed at locations around Warsaw, Poland.

The 300-page diary and personal planner for 2018 is packed with stunning photos alongside daily training schedules and tables to record goals, achievements and results. It benefits the One Year Fund, which raises money for footware, clothing and equipment for underfunded young athletes.

London photographer and founder of the project Dominika Cuda (previously featured), who is a former Biathlonist, added:

“We reach out to the best and brightest, help them stay on their chosen path and motivate them in achieving their goals.”

Fabulous Vintage Photos Showing The Amazing Women’s Street Style From The 1920s

The 1920s also known as the roaring twenties is the year of explosive creativity and innovative fashion styles. The economic prosperity after the First World War brought about widespread availability of high fashion items to almost all walks of life.

April 21, 1927. “Do ducks swim? Misses Eugenia Dunbar and Mary Moose.” The main focus here is of course the horse trough, once a common item of street furniture in many big cities.

It was the decade where people became bold and daring about their fashion styles, abandoning the formal and restricted fashions of the past years. If it weren’t for fashion designers from the 1920s, we wouldn’t have laid our hands on timeless fashion items like cloche hats, flapper dresses, and high heeled shoes. As a remembrance of the era’s flourishing fashion game, here are photos showing the amazing women’s street style from the 1920s.

Vibrant Photos Of Chicago In 1941 Through The Lens Of Photographer John Vachon


John Vachon/Library Of Congress

In the depths of the Great Depression, the United States government created the Resettlement Administration to help provide relief for drought-stricken and impoverished farmers. The RA was restructured and renamed the Farm Security Administration in 1937.

One of the FSA’s most notable efforts was its small team of documentary photographers, who traveled the country recording the living conditions of Americans. Directed by Roy Stryker, the photographers included now-legendary documentarians Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, Gordon Parks and Russell Lee, among others.

In 1936, 21-year-old Minnesotan John Felix Vachon got a job with the FSA as an assistant messenger while attending the Catholic University of America. He had no previous interest in photography, but his constant immersion in the work of the FSA photographers motivated him to try his own hand at shooting.

He started out by wandering around Washington with a Leica camera, and soon received training, equipment and encouragement from Stryker, Evans and other FSA photographers. By 1938, he was shooting solo assignments.

Here, the still-green photographer explores the streets of Chicago in 1941, capturing images of city life in photos that are sometimes distant and unobtrusive, but often sharply observant and quietly funny.

Provocative NSFW Fashion Photography By Nikola Tamindzic

Nikola Tamindzic is a talented fashion, editorial and portrait photographer from Serbia, who currently based in New York. He first established himself as a New York art and fashion photographer while working for Gawker in 2004.

He continued with assignments for Vogue, NYLON, Harper’s Bazaar and was named Photographer of the Year by The Village Voice. Possessing an uncanny ability to disarm both subjects and viewers alike with his alluringly powerful portraits, he seeks to capture the beautiful contradictions of human experience. In the vein of predecessors who have sought to capture the uncanny in the extreme – Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, and Terry Richardson – Nikola’s distinctively surreal photographs portray a world that is beyond our gaze.

For his latest project “F*cking New York”, Nikola Tamindzic wrangled up models, actors, writers, political activists, and others interested in the subject to showcase exactly how these people, who are so in love with New York, would essentially f*ck it. Tamindzic captured the absurd relationship between New Yorkers and their city. Often shocking, funny and intimate, the work straddles a fine line between pornography and art.

Sexy Pin-Up Models Dressed In Only Milk Splashes Grace This NSFW 2018 Calendar


Miss January – Monika Syntycz

Photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz is no stranger to using milk splashes. In his previous project, Wieczorkiewicz turned nude models into characters from superhero movies using this ingredient.

The photographer recently got together with his team from Aurum Light, seven models, and three makeup artists plus hair stylists, to create arresting visuals for the “Milky Pinups 2018” calendar.

“As an avid cinemagoer I had more titles in my head than I could fit in the 12 page calendar… The selection was really hard, but finally we locked down to the ones you can see below. Some of the titles or characters are really popular and therefore quite obvious but others have just a hint of the title,” Jaroslav wrote. “As usual all the costumes were made out of milk – in many cases colourised by the food colourisers… We threw on our models a lot of milk and they were amazing during this demanding process!”
