Posted in inspiration, photography, travel by benperdue on 22/12/2010

Love these pictures of Britain’s growing legions of young nudists by photographer Laura Pannack. Naturism isn’t so sexy – it’s a miserable summer holiday just minus the clothes.

Posted in inspiration, magazine, model, newspaper by benperdue on 10/12/2010

‘Not since the glam era of the 1970s has gender-bending so saturated the news media. The difference now is that mystery has been replaced with empowerment, even pride.’ Article about the influence of Candy, transsexual model Lea T (above), and gender non-conformity from the New York Times.

Posted in hero, inspiration, music by benperdue on 06/12/2010

Getting hyped by Hanna Hanra at The Beat and with good reason. This is the same Frenchman that did the music for Kenneth Anger’s film for Missoni earlier this year. Scares me in a Gaspar Noé way.
