Art’s great nudes have gone skinny
Italian artist Anna Utopia Giordano has created a visual re-imagination of historic nude paintings, had the subjects conformed their bodies to what the 21st century considers an ideal of beauty. The results are revealing—and quite shocking in what they say about the modern attitude toward women’s bodies.
Brazilian photographer Cassio Vasconcellos creates virtually impossible aerial views of giant parking lots that extend indefinitely. His pictures are made up of thousands of individual photos. Rows of cars are photographed from above and then reassembled into a single seamless composite image, creating entire walls of them to great effect. Seen from a distance, the huge panels resemble large mosaics composed of thousands of individual colored tiles. On closer examination, however they reveal the intricacy and complexity of Vasconcellos’ masterful compositions.

"Gay marriage is still illegal. Can we get a ‘boo’ for that? It’s crazy to outlaw marriage. Marriage is a happy thing. You shouldn’t be able to vote on someone else’s happiness. These people don’t know these gay people, they’re not going to know them, they’re not gonna be their friends…they have control over their lives. That’s not fair.”
