VICE-Garbage-Girls

Photographer Maya Fuhr was commissioned by VICE to embark on a photographic exploration. This trek was aimed to show us that female bedrooms are not all neat and tidy domiciles. With preconceived notions, humans believe the female species to be the cleanlier of the two. The photos Maya created will most certainly shock many, and garner nodding heads of approval from those who “understand” – all too well – the perils of a messy female room. These photos will squash any remnants of doubt that all females object to living under a mountain of filth. It will also show that some of their rooms more closely resemble discombobulated landfills than the pristine oasis retreats we’re duped into believing. [Read more...]

Instead we are treated to a bold field of color, almost giving us the feeling it’s floating in space. [Read more...]

A teenage girl’s bedroom often reveals more about who she is and what’s important to her than a conversation with her. For a privileged girl in the United States, molding her living space is the ultimate form of self-expression. Not only do these bedrooms show the values of the girls that live in them, but they also disclose the values of the culture that she is a part of. Photographer Rania Matar captured the dichotomy between the living quarters of girls in United States and Lebanon. [Read more...]

From Below: Room Photographs From a Floors View

Thursday 08.30.2012 , Posted by

The unusual photographic work of German photographer Michael H. Rohde gives us a highly unique perspective of the indoor world… from the floor up. As if you’d laid down on the floor of a home and slowly sunk into the floor, his images capture rooms “From Below,” as the series is titled. His images are disorientating in their unusual viewpoint, making our eyes struggle to make sense of a rarely seen perspective. [Read more...]
