40s Pin-Ups Models Re-imagined And ‘Dressed’ In Only Milk

Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz

London-based photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz has come up with quite the new fashion in his reimagined tribute to 1940s pin-up models, Milky Pin-Ups. Referencing vintage pin-up paintings from the late calendar artist Gil Elvgren, Wieczorkiewicz dressed the models in real milk, orchestrating splash after splash. The final ensembles are incredibly impressive and a product of meticulous layering of hundreds of photos of the milk in its various flight patterns. There’s no denying it this time—milk, it does a body good.

Classic Statues Photographed as Everyday Hipsters


This series asks the question “What is the importance of clothing in our modern society?” How you dress is who you are. When you dress statues, suddenly no longer are they simply reclining figures from the distant past, they now look to be figures from modern and hip cities of today. Because they are made relevant to our current styles, we can see the realism and humanity in each figure.
Leo Caillard

After spending a day at the Louvre in Paris, photographer Leo Caillard had the genius idea to dress classic statues in what he calls “hipster” clothing. These nude statues represent an ideal iconic figure, a concept of perfection. By clothing them, Caillard is addressing the power of representation.

Portraits of Tokyo Lolitas


The clubgoers’ fake eyelashes, their hair extensions, the tattoos and character goods that cover their bodies seem almost to infinitely breed and multiply in a motley riot of colors. Since ancient times, wearing bright colors and ornaments has been considered an effective way to call down luck from the spirits, who are said to be attracted to such brilliance.

Clever Homage-to-Picasso Fashion Story Photographed by Eugenio Recuenco


As always, whilst you’re hunting for something, you inevitably stumble across something else that’s really great. I love this clever homage-to-Picasso fashion story by Eugenio Recuenco. The Spanish photographer is something of a renaissance man; besides photography, he is well versed in film and has even collaborated on an opera. He describes himself as a “pain in the ass who always insists on doing what he wants.” Fair play to you, Eugenio!

New York-based editorial and advertising photographer Bela Borsodi delights and dazzles with his provocative fusions of art and fashion in Unconscious Affair. He combines real life models with handpainted art “stand-ins”, blurring the line between reality and fantasy—fantasy being the operative word here.

Images Rich with Mood and Myth Evoke David Lynch Films

Photographer Logan White transports us to places re-imagined, enticing us with magic and mystery. Her images feel psychically charged and are rich with mood and myth, appearing almost like visions foreseen.

‘African Queens’ Photographed by Namsa Leuba

New York Magazine’s The Cut sent Swiss photographer Namsa Leuba a trunk of designer clothes and let her run free with them. Leuba did just that, and then some. African Queens is the magnificently ornate and creative result—a high fashion representation of African statuettes.

Gritty Fashion Story Inspired by the Downtrodden


“Trashed” is a series that came together when Christopher Klettermayer combines elements of fashion with the grunge of a homeless lifestyle. Through the careful styling of Felix Leblhuber and Klettermayer’s well though out shots, this series created for Bambi Magazine exemplifies the contradiction of a downtrodden yet radiantly defiant spirit.
