Burnt Telephone Pole

This isn’t a photoshop trick. It’s a picture of a telephone pole near Linevo in Russia’s Volvograd region, which was hard-hit by wildfires.

Photorealism is a genre of art that emerged from pop art in the 60s and 70s as a counter to abstract expressionism, and aims to create pictures that are as true-to-life as possible. Usually, photographs are used in making the pictures, but they aren’t photos themselves. The pictures above are by Juan Francisco Casas and they’re made with ball-point pen. I’m really amazed by the picture below, by Dru Blair, because it isn’t a photo of a real person, but was made entirely using computer applications like Illustrator and Photoshop.

Germany’s Top Fashion Magazine Bans Models Over ‘Anorexia’


The top women’s magazine in Germany, ‘Brigitte’, has officially stopped working with professional models, saying “the entire modelling industry is anorexic.” The average professional model weighs 23% less than the average woman. In the past, Brigitte has had to photoshop added weight onto models to make them resemble their readers.

Lebert said the magazine would call on German women to put themselves forward as models for fashion and makeup articles.

“We’re looking for women who have their own identity, whether it be the 18-year-old A-level student, the company chairwoman, the musician, or the footballer,” he said, adding that he wanted a mix between prominent and completely unknown women and would look out for politicians and actresses interested in modelling.
