Speaking of unsettling things- I watched Perfume: The Story of a Murderer tonight. It was gorgeous and fantastic and gory and horrifying all at the same time. I was both shocked by the overall beauty of the film, yet disturbed by the imagery. Personally, I'd call it a fairy tale. An extreme, yet beautiful, Boogie Man story. Did I mention this movie was gorgeous? Yeah, just see it.

I recently worked my way through the first two seasons of Dexter and I loved it. What I loved a little bit more than the show, though, was the awesome opening sequence. The first time I saw it, I wasn't sure weather to be enthralled or nauseous... gotta love things like that.

These My Little Ponies were modified by artist Mari Kasurinen. They're pretty awesome :D She takes commission jobs, so check out more on her website and check into writing her an email. I'd totally do it, but I have no idea what I'd want.

Vik Muniz is a photographer. His work is made from diamonds, dust, caviar, thread, wire, dirt, chocolate, and garbage, but he is a photographer. He shapes portraits from the materials listed above only to photograph them, then they're destroyed. Everything was done for the photograph and it only exists as a photograph. I like that. And his work is fucking sweet.
These are his Caviar Monsters
This is a portrait of an Army Soldier shaped by toy soldiers. The picture directly below is a detail.
To see a lot more of his work, visit his website.

Last week my Large Format Photography class went to Geppi's Entertainment Museum at Camden Yards. The place was amazing!! Geppi's is definitely one of Baltimore's best spots that little to nobody knows about. I fell in love immediately and snapped a few hundred digital images and these were my favorites. For more on Geppi's, visit their website as well as their Twitter.
