Marc Jacobs: Illustration to Photograph

marc jacobs andy warhol marc jacobs andy warhol interview

Designer Marc Jacobs covers the June/July 08 issue of Interview magazine (celebrating what would have been Andy Warhol‘s 80th birthday on August 6), donning false eyelashes and a classic white Warhol wig for a series of portraits that seem to shift from illustration to photograph. A very Andy Warhol drag homage.

In the interview, Marc Jacobs says; “Warhol is Warhol. He’s practically a god. I thought, ‘I’m going to get a lot of hell for this.”

Photographers Bitter Over Polaroid’s Demise

Several weeks ago, the Polaroid Corporation announced it will quit the instant-film business in 2009 (not surprising given the rising of digital photography.)  However, photographers and artists are not happy about this at all.

New York Magazine reports; “Now what the hell am I supposed to do?” asks John Waters, who’s shot a Polaroid of each person who’s come into his apartment since 1992—friends, interviewers, delivery men, everyone. “Digital isn’t instant gratification, and those cameras don’t make that sexy sound.”

I sense a Save Polaroid campaign coming. Save polaroids, save the world?

Photography: An excuse for splashing water over a hot guy

Just came across these today and it would be a crime if I don’t share them. Not only the colour contrast and lighting is amazing, we get a hot guy getting wet wearing nothing but his swim suit. Is there a better way to get ready for Spring/Summer 08?

Vibrant Blossoms for Beijing Olympics

This year over a half a million people filled Victoria Park for the Hong Kong Flower Show 2008. The major theme was of course, “Vibrant Blossoms for Beijing Olympics. Participants from around the world created fantastical floral worlds. The spectacular event was accented with drawing, dancing, music and photography competitions. The best part of all is the reward at the end. All of the healthy plants are given to local agencies to keep the beauty alive all year long.

Just when I thought it’s over….

I admit I was surprised when I saw Edison Chen’s name on the headlines today. The Standard has reported an article which said “Chen sex scandal spawns copycat”. It’s basically about a university student’s sex tape was leaked and being circulated just like Chen’s case.

From how I see it, if Chen’s scandal was a prime time television show, these other sex-tapes/photos circulation stories are the spin-offs. Though the scandal is pretty much over and has reached its finale, the audience are left wanting some more. Thus these stories being able to make headlines. Seriously, these stories wouldn’t have made it if it weren’t for Mr. Chen.
