Gloriously faded and sometimes overgrown old Tokyo shopfronts

On my Instagram account, the majority of photos are of faded and dilapidated old shopfronts — images that are taken on my phone and shot exclusively in square format.

Where to Instagram in Vegas

Between the Bellagio fountains , the replica Eiffel Tower, and the faux Venice canals, Las Vegas is an Instagrammer’s paradise — not to mention the iconic “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign and the Elvises on every corner happy to snap a selfie with you for a few bucks. There are so many other wonderfully weird spots that might as well have been designed just for social media. If you’re at the top of your ‘gram game, get deep into the city that locals know and love to see and snap: the lesser-known s...

Shifting Gears

    I thought this vacation going to see Yann's family I would create a travel log of our road trip, add photos, tips, and places to see... addresses. I thought of the delightful fodder for my blog.

Turning her camera on her customers, the sex worker and photojournalist exposed the male gaze to itself – and opened up a world of shame and desire“As a rebellious preteen, I sat down and made a list of my life goals,” writes Cammie Toloui in her photobook 5 Dollars for 3 Minutes. “It was pretty simple: 1. Sex. 2. Drugs. 3. Rock’n’roll.”Born in the San Francisco Bay Area in the Summer of Love, Toloui was in the right place to hit these targets, and by 1990 was a member of a feminist punk band, ...
