An Adorable–And Slightly Wet–Pet Portrait Series
The damp dogs featured in Sophie Gamand’s portrait series convey the annoyance, inconvenience and occasionally unpleasant sides of grooming and hygiene–perhaps even better than we do. Highlighting the ways in which we alter the appearance of our pets to be more in line with anthropocentric standards of hygiene and beauty, Gamand paints a surprisingly adorable picture of general discomfort. We’re not sure Gamand would achieve the same effect if she used people as her subjects, though. To see the entire series, be sure to visit the spread at DeMilked.

Taking weeks and months to prepare, Lee’s works center on Korean fables and her own memory, with each work unearthing the intimate within walls that are meant to conceal.

Looking Back At Malls In The 1980s
1989 marked a critical turning point in world history. Ushering in a new wave of international “openness” with the fall of the Berlin Wall, certainty as to what awaited the world was hard to come by. Thankfully, though, anxious Americans had their homogenous shopping malls. In Michael Galinsky’s series of photographs on the subject, it is not the teased hair or abuse of leather that we notice most; it’s the sameness of all malls. You wouldn’t believe it based on the images featured at Time, but Galinsky’s study took place in malls across the country. At such a dynamic moment in history, the mall in all of its glass-filled, placeless glory provided a consistent thread to a vulnerable public.
