these are by Dutch photographer Rineke Dijkstra from the series “Beach Portraits” from the 1990’s. She works in both photography and video to create her portraits.

I heard her speak at my school last night. She has a way of beautifully portraying the awkwardness, self-consciousness, and frustrations of adolescence somehow in her formal, painterly portraiture. You should all look up her work and if you live in New York, see her retrospective at the Guggenheim (I know I’m going to go).

“Member” features photos of naked men, some trans, some not, to highlight the differences and similarities of all men’s bodies and dispel the notion of one particular “trans body.”

Echolilia

All parents love their children. But what do you do when you can’t connect with them? In my case, I started making photographs of, and with, my son Elijah, who has autism spectrum disorder. This series—the title is from “echolalia,” a clinical term for the mimicking aspect of his condition—shows the bridges we’ve built on our shared journey of wonder, discovery, and understanding.

We began this project when Eli was five. He was doing well at school but fixating on odd things, lashing out, speaking repetitively. My wife and I couldn’t figure him out. Then I started taking pictures of him around the house. It was an instinctive act for a photographer: Point your camera at something in order to make sense of it. But a curious thing happened. As I documented what Eli was doing and creating, he became interested in the images I was making. I was learning how he thinks; he was learning what I like and value.

We soon had a system. Eli would do something unusual, one of us would notice, and we’d make a photo of it together. The pictures we took over three years were more raw and feral than anything I’d done as an editorial or advertising photographer. And more personal. This is, after all, the story of a father and his son.

Timothy Archibald’s book, Echolilia: Sometimes I Wonder, was published last year by Echo Press. See more of his work at timothyarchibald.com.

I signed up for Flickr again…having cancelled my previous account last year in an attempt to appear more “professional” and keep my selected photos on an online portfolio without the clutter of personal albums, snapshots, etc. And also because of creepers. I don’t take a lot of nude or…

i am way into your flickr. (…and not in a sexual way)

so i tried to submit this picture to cuteboyswithcats forever ago but they never posted it to my knowledge. the caption i wrote for it is way out of date anyways because now i am no longer dating daniel and actually the cat featured died. (but don’t worry she was a very very old cat) 
anyways, i still think it is a very dreamy picture. it is potentially one of the best polaroids i have taken.

so like, my polaroid camera has been acting really weird/not working ever since the pains show and i figured it was just because it was jammed (it was) so i loaded a new roll of film in it to maybe take to dc but then i decided i had to test it. but cause polaroid film is so pricey and whatnot i had to test it in a “ooh look at my ~~PHOTO PROJECT~~” way so as to not feel like a bad person for wasting polaroid film. i think this came out pretty! 
sorry for shitty webcam picture of it. the scanner was olivia’s, and thus is gone forever.

Here’s Marcel’s formula: Ask models what kind of food they like, then pour it ALL OVER THEIR FACES.
This model likes honey!
“I like…” by Marcel van der Vlugt

that’s kind of an adorable idea which is weird cause the pictures all like pretty sinister

This is an amazing set of photos showing a woman’s beauty being magnified as her pregnancy progresses. Just beautiful.

I don’t normally post things like this, but I think this is an amazing series of photographs. I love seeing her body change. The way her face and neck and arms and legs round out, besides just her breasts and stomach. I think this is a unique way to look at pregnancy that we don’t normally get to see.

this is really interesting!
