the design for this film was just like no other it is absolutely stunning
Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays the only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.
Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.
Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.

Close-Up Portraits of Rare Bengal Tigers
As founder of The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S.), exotic animal trainer Dr. Bhagavan Antle has a unique opportunity to come face-to-face with a number of Bengal tigers on a daily basis. As a result of this direct contact, he has developed an extensive portrait series of the incredibly powerful animals extremely up-close.
The members of the “Buchstabenmuseum” society have made it their business to keep those old signs, which formerly have given public space its determined appearance, as pieces of an exhibition “alive”. At the moment the museum is moving to a new location. On 12/6/2013 at 7pm the new home for the letters will be inaugurated near the Alexanderplatz. Regular exhibition starts on 12/7/2013. The signs have been partly donated but have also very often been saved from scrapping etc. by the society members, after negotiating with the respective owners. New members, donated money and photos of signs, independent of languages and scripts, along with contacts to the owners are welcome. Further on the museum still is in need of a final location.
