Millions of people live here and, to each, millions of stories. But not all stories are good. Not all people are […]

'Spinster' Photographer Poses With Mannequin Family to Depict the American Dream - Feature Shoot

'Spinster' Photographer Poses With Mannequin Family to Depict the American Dream - Feature Shoot | The Art of Photography | Scoop.it
Denver-based photographer and art director Suzanne Heintz was fed up with people asking her when she was going to get married. From her mother's direct plea, "Just pick somebody!" to others' woeful sighs of pity, Heintz lived half her life wondering where she had gone wrong. After years of struggling to politely answer the question, she decided to procure the house, husband, and offspring everyone so desperately felt was the pathway to happiness. Purchasing a pair of second-hand mannequins, Heintz set about playing house to achieve the American Dream. From a Parisian holiday to Christmas cards of wildly escalating happiness, Life Once Removed is a sharp, witty critique on the archaic expectations of domestic bliss and fulfillment.
C.O.'s insight:

Again, another creative project.  More importantly, the project is a statement of the photographer's life.  Isn't that a function of photography?

Fifty shades of gay

Fifty shades of gay | The Art of Photography | Scoop.it
Artist iO Tillett Wright has photographed 2,000 people who consider themselves somewhere on the LGBTQ spectrum and asked many of them: Can you assign a percentage to how gay or straight you are? Most people, it turns out, consider themselves to exist in the gray areas of sexuality, not 100% gay or straight. Which presents a real problem when it comes to discrimination: Where do you draw the line? (Filmed at TEDxWomen.)
C.O.'s insight:

A special photographic project AND a very powerful TED Talks too.  Enjoy.
