Well, I guess you could call this titillating. Photographer Lucy Hilmer has kept up a tradition for 40 years of taking a self-portrait on her birthday wearing nothing other than her ‘white Lollipop underpants, shoes and socks’.

Kenny Ong Contributor

By Kenny Ong in New Photography on Thursday 7 August 2014

Photographer Christina De Middel is an odd ball when it comes to spam emails that try to cheat you of your hard earned pennies.

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Photography on Thursday 7 August 2014

From the ‘you can’t script it’ category comes this somewhat bizarre story about a pending legal entanglement between a clever monkey, a photographer, and Wikipedia.

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Photography on Tuesday 5 August 2014
