Histagrams 1

“If something isn’t on the internet, it didn’t happen.” At least that’s what a lot of people seem to think in our modern age, when every birthday party, natural disaster or new creative pursuit has to show up on Facebook or Instagram. But what if the major historical events of the past happened today with our current social media obsession? What if DaVinci had posted instagram teasers showing his nearly completed Mona Lisa? What if someone posted a photo of the Trojan horse before its secret contents were revealed? That’s what MTV designers Gusto NYC and Gavin Alaoen set out to do on their hilarious new blog, Histagrams. [Read more...]

In our modern society, the elderly are often perceived as having lost their independence, and though they built much of what we see now, they are even seen as having little to contribute. There is a part of our population who never think that: grandchildren. Yoni Lefevre is out to set the record straight, showing the elderly as kids see them – people full of life, ready to juggle many things at once and ready to share copious amounts of love. She recruited four children, ages 10-11, and asked them to draw their grandparents as they imagined them. She then teamed up with photographer Nick Bookelaar, who captured the real-life grandparents dressed just like their grandkids vision. The series is called Grey Power. [Read more...]
