This Week in Photography Books: Luciana Pampalone

Proper civilizations depend upon the rule of law, in my opinion. It might not work as a general rule, though, because China is an impressive civilization, for sure. (I guess Russia is too, if for Dostoevsky alone.) But since the times of Hammurabi’s code, the idea of a system of justice has long been at the heart of most idealistic, successful societies. (I’d include America on that list, though our justice system is heavily imperfect.) Even when they’re functioning, laws re...

This North Hollywood woman beat the odds to walk the runway at London Fashion Week

As far back as Sayda Hartoonian can remember, she has always wanted to be runway fashion model. The North Hollywood woman is getting that chance on Friday when she makes her international debut at London Fashion Week in England. Hartoonian, whose professional name is Sayda Word, isn’t any ordinary fashion model. She doesn’t meet “industry standards” and is quite possibly the shortest model to walk the London runway. First of all, she’s only 5’ 3,” and even though she’s only 25 years old, it coul...

teach yourself

Michael Starghill. Earlier this week, a photographer showed up at my house to photograph me for a project with an organization I’m really proud to be a part of (more on that soon). This talented photographer’s name is Michael Starghill, and he arrived with an assistant, Sherman McCain (also a really amazing photographer in his own right). As they began setting up, I asked them a...

The WPA's horseback librarians

During the 1930s, the WPA sponsored horseback librarians -- all women -- to visit rural Americans, bringing them books; the librarians were only allowed to make deliveries in counties that had existing libraries, so schools and other institutions donated materials to establish libraries that would make their counties eligible. The program ran until 1943, and, as with many WPA programs, it was lavishly documented by talented photographers, as a reminder to all of us in their future that Amer...

The Game Drags Tomi Lahren All Over the Internet With Photo “B4 Plastic Surgery”

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj aren’t the only rappers who have a problem with Tomi Lahren.In response to Lahren tweet mocking 21 Savage’s ICE arrest—”I got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight ICE agents ready to deport ya,” she tweeted—the West Coast rapper took to Instagram, calling her a “cum gargling, microwaved, carrot skinned, 90 year old white man body havin slut” and telling her to “stay out the tanning salon” because she’s “starting to look like a sick tangerine.”Read his full post ...

How I Went From A Bullied Teen To The First Male Cheerleader At The Super Bowl

The following interview was told to Thatiana Diaz and has been edited for length and clarity.I've been dancing since I was little. It took some getting used to for my dad, because I'm the youngest of two older brothers and they both competed in sports. They're black belts, so dancing with a whole squad of girls was a little bit harder for my dad to understand. I remember one day he asked me, "Are you sure you don't want to finish karate or anything like that?" But he eventually came around.I wa...

Tyra Mail: Ariana Grande Just Got America's Next Top Model-Style Hair Advice

When Tyra Banks presents you with Tyra mail, you listen, even if you're Ariana Grande. The America's Next Top Model host posted a photo of Grande on Instagram and Twitter with the caption "What a pony. What a "tail" @ArianaGrande is telling with this shot to get lost in. #GrandeFierceness". Grande fierceness indeed, and the shout-out immediately caught the singer's attention. She replied in the best way possible with zero chill (relateable) and asked what Banks would do to her hair in an imagin...

The Reproductive Health Act of Horror: The Lies Behind Abortion Without Limits

New York has legalized abortion up to birth, and beyond. It is now legal to neglect, choke, or smother a baby that somehow survived the lethal injection and knife cuts designed to kill during the abortion procedure. To put a fine point on it, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the Reproductive Health Act (RHA) on January 22, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. This law legalizes abortion in New York throughout all nine months of pregnancy, even up to dilation. It repeals the safeguard requiring all ...

We Scoured Instagram & Found 10 Of 2019's Buzziest New Jewelry Brands

Nowadays, the rule of thumb for jewelry is pretty clear: the more the merrier. We layer so many necklaces on top of each other that waking up without a tangled mess around our necks is impossible, our hands are stacked with a ring (if not multiple) on every finger and we're on a first-name basis with the local piercing dude. Needless to say, the days of taking a minimalist stance in this department are officially a thing of the past. So naturally, we're always on the hunt for new brands to add ...

Most Instagrammed places in the US

The more jaded travelers among us might say nobody travels anymore; they just go places to collect content for their Instagrams. Which, for a large segment of the population, is probably true. Such is travel in 2019, where the popularity of both people and places is largely gauged on the ‘gram. While we’re not going to pass judgment on any national park, sandy beach, or mouse-eared theme park based on the number of hashtags it got in 2018, Play Picks is happy to do so.

Is $3,000 Too Much For a Camera?

I really wonder about this. On the one hand, I've been "cash strapped" most of my life and I think $3k is a huge amount of money to spend for a camera, verging on "outrageous." On the other hand, I've done it. Never actually $3k+ on a single body exclusively I guess, but close, and I've bought a $3k camera and lens, or one body plus a second backup body, or an outfit. Not once but several times. I regret almost all of those purchases—all but one that I can think of—and I wish I had most of that ...

Art and Fear (the Ceramics Lesson)

A plug for an old fave, Bayles' and Orland's Art & Fear. The famous anecdote from Art & Fear about the ceramics class: The ceramics teacher announced on opening day that he was dividing the class into two groups. All those on the left side of the studio, he said, would be graded solely on the quantity of work they produced, all those on the right solely on its quality. His procedure was simple: on the final day of class he would bring in his bathroom scales and weigh the work of the "quantity"...

I attended Instagram influencer Caroline Calloway's 5-hour, $165 creativity workshop that people have called a 'scam.' Here's what it was like inside. (FB)

Instagram influencer Caroline Calloway has made headlines for holding "creativity workshops" for her followers that were poorly run and derided as "scams."  When Calloway decided to relaunch her tour, I was able to attend her five-hour-long workshop this past weekend in New York. Calloway first rose to prominence in 2015, when she started posting personal stories about college life and heartbreak. Since then, she has amassed more than 800,000 Instagram followers. Many of Calloway's fans say ...

The Best Work I Saw at the Medium Festival of Photography: Part 2

  I never set out to be an opinion columnist. It’s true. Hell, before 2008, if you’d told me I’d become a professional blogger, much less do the job for nearly 9 years, I’d have taken you for a crazy person. But everything realigned 10 years ago, in the eye-teeth of The Great Recession, and frankly, I don’t think the world has been the same since. It’s funny, reading the papers, following the discussions about whether the 10 year bull market has finally turned bear. Will the stock market’s tumbl...

Muslim-American Journalist Noor Tagouri Says Vogue Misrepresented Her

It's no secret that the fashion industry, and the fashion media, have a lot of work to do when it comes to true diversity and inclusivity. Vogue magazine, in particular, has come under fire in recent months for cultural missteps and mistakes.It look the title 126 years to work with a Black photographer on a cover, so it's no wonder that one of its writers could refer to Beyoncé’s hair as a “hip-length afro,” or suddenly name Timberland boots a “fresh idea” because a supermodel wore them. But fo...

Squad is the new screensharing chat app everyone will copy

Squad could be the next teen sensation because it makes it easy to do nothing… together. Spending time with friends in the modern age often means just being on your phones next to each other, occasionally showing off something funny you found. Squad lets you do this even while apart, and that way of punctuating video chat might make it the teen girl “third place” like Fortnite is for adolescent boys. With Squad, you fire up a video chat with up to six people, but at any time you can screensha...
