Woman Photographs Herself Receiving Strange Looks in Public
“I now reverse the gaze and record their reactions to me while I perform mundane tasks in public spaces. I seek out spaces that are visually interesting and geographically diverse. I try to place myself in compositions that contain feminine icons or advertisements. Otherwise, I position myself and the camera in a pool of people…and wait.
The images capture the gazer in a microsecond moment where they, for unknowable reasons, have a look on their face that questions my presence. Whether they are questioning my position in front of the lens or questioning my body size, the gazer appears to be visually troubled that I am in front of them.”

Thought this was actually really cool and I’d share it with you guys! Takes a lot to get up there and do something like this. Love it!
This is why I limit my interactions with humans.
Whether they are questioning my position in front of the lens or questioning my body size, the gazer appears to be visually troubled that I am in front of them.
Introducing the New $100 Bill
Ben Franklin’s $100 bill is getting a makeover this coming October with some brand new security features to help deter counterfeiters, including a 3D security ribbon that is woven into the paper with animated and color-shifting watermarks. For instance, if you were to examine an authentic, new $100 banknote, you’ll notice a color-changing bell hidden inside the inkwell (located to Franklin’s right side) that turns from copper to green as the bill shifts. Want to see the bill in action? Head over to NewMoney.gov for an interactive look at this high-tech bill.
Jardin fleuris is a series representing the different ages of a woman. The first picture is called Virgin Soil, the second is called Mûres which means both “blackberries” and “mature” representing puberty and first periods, the third picture is called Broken Eggs. Broken eggs represent the loss of virginity in arts. The fourth photo is called Blossom in the Garden and represents a mother with her inner fertile garden.
