Helmut Newton, Monte Carlo, 1994



Chip Willis

February 18, 2010

Chip Willis’ photographs make me think of dreamy stills from some dark, subtitled movie about despair and explorations of one’s Self through mindless wanderings and moody anonymous sex. Otherwise known as the entire cinematic output of any given European country between 1950 and the present, discounting a couple comedies about soccer.  Or the complete contents of my DVD collection when I was 18 and pretentious. Still, I love films like that, and I’d love to see one that contained the images below– I’m thinking something along the lines of L’Avventura?

See more of his pictures on his website and his blog (VERY NSFW… I made the mistake of looking at it to get these pictures, and had to keep on frantically scrolling down, looking over my shoulder in case the office manager walked by. Eek. )

Duchess of Seville Apple and Horse, by Norman Parkinson, 1981.

Love the contrast of her classic look with the ridiculous shot. I want a necklace just like this one.

I promise I will stop with the punny titles. I just couldn’t resist here.

Wonderful day, isn’t it?



Catch the Stars

catch the stars

This illustration is the epitome of perfection for me right at this moment: folkloristic in style and subject, with a vague hint of scifi. The image is simple and romantic, and leaves open an inifite possibility of stories. I’m itching to write it now.
