Striking Photos Aim To Redefine ‘Natural’ Female Beauty

“In 2007, London-based photographer Ben Hopper started “Natural Beauty,” a photo series designed to challenge what he described as the societal “brainwashing” done by the beauty industry.

Now, nearly seven years later, Hopper released his first official set of these photographs to The Huffington Post. Using an eclectic group of models, actresses, designers and friends, Hopper’s pictures highlight a woman’s beauty, her armpit hair, and the timely reminder that those two things are in no way mutually exclusive.”

“Although the viewpoint from filmmakers is that festival programming is as opaque as midnight fog, it is assuredly not the case when you speak to the festivals. They may be gatekeepers but they definitely do not want to lock you out of the process. To build a bridge between programmers & filmmakers, I offer some insights that I have gleaned from years of managing film festivals, programming the International Film Festival Summit and speaking to hundreds of programmers and festival directors.”

This French Ad Has the Most Unbelievably Gorgeous Food Shots Ever Proximity BBDO bakes perfection

“If you like to cook, eat or look at pretty things, enjoy this gorgeously hypnotic bit of food porn from French coffee brand Carte Noir.

 

Created by Proximity BBDO and two directors from Le Potager, the visual craft is on par with Wieden + Kennedy’s bar-setting 2012 paean to vegetables for British butter brand Lurpak. Someone more savvy to kitchens than I will have to parse exactly what’s happening when, but basically it’s about baking delicious little pastries filled with coffee-flavored cream to eat with your coffee (“Chou” also means cabbage in French, but don’t be confused).”

Most Americans Think Comcast-Time Warner Cable Merger Is Bad News

“A majority of Americans are skeptical about the proposed merger of Comcast Corp and Time Warner Cable Inc, and they are not convinced the U.S. government is doing enough to prevent monopolies generally, according to a Reuters/Ipsos online poll released on Wednesday.

The poll found that 52 percent of those surveyed believed that mergers such as the Comcast-Time Warner Cable deal result in less competition and are bad for consumers, while 22 percent believe they allow cable and internet providers to be more efficient and provide better service to consumers.”
