By Feature Shoot in New Photography on Thursday 11 September 2014

When all that remains from a relationship is the dingy t-shirt, what happens to the memories, the stories and the sentiment?

Who do you want to be? Or, more accurately, who could you have been? Czech photographer Dita Pepe takes these musings quite literally, re-imaging her life in a hundred different scenarios in her series Self Portraits with Men. Pepe’s photographs are disarming in their nonchalant subtly, the artist possessing an uncanny ability to become a seamless member of each family. [This post originally ran on Feature Shoot]

By Feature Shoot in New Photography on Friday 15 August 2014

Dutch photographer and art director Patrick Van Dam grants us ultimate voyeur access in Playboy Behind The Scenes, his first photo book published in 2011. Van Dam pulls back the curtain just long enough to capture intimate moments on Playmate photo shoots in snapshots that as the photographer says, record “unexpected, undirected and natural responses—humor, disillusionment, absurdism and vulnerability in an erotic setting.” [This post first ran on Feature Shoot]

Photographer takes a self-portrait in her underwear on her birthday every year for 40 years!

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Photography on Saturday 9 August 2014

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’. Not quite a birthday suit, but close enough. Her first Birthday Suit self-portrait was taken in Death Valley, California, in 1974.

Sketch artist’s crazily accurate portraits of crooks she’s never seen

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Tuesday 17 June 2014

In this revealing photo series, people reveal their hidden tattoos

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Photography on Wednesday 21 May 2014
