What first comes to mind when you see an American flag? Freedom, the Statue of Liberty, or maybe a big juicy burger? This last association has been used by French photographer Jonathan Icher in his “Fat Flag” photo series. With the help of make-up artist Anastasia Parquet, Icher picked five different nationalities and put their iconic foods into his models’ mouths.

Have you ever had difficulties trying to get a baby to sit down and pose for a picture? It’s a huge headache now, but it was even harder for mothers in the Victorian era, when camera technology made posing for photographs difficult. These weird photos will show you how these mothers got their kids to calm down to get their pictures taken.

French photographer Sophie Gamand decided to create a natural and very cute photo series of dogs getting wet during their grooming procedures. What makes the fittingly-titled Wet Dog photo series so funny is how realistically these little fellows react to water and shampoo. Some fur balls remain stoic and pretend that everything’s OK, but others don’t even try to hide their emotions, and you can see the misery, surprise and even anger in their eyes. Don’t worry, though – not a single doggy was harmed during this photoshoot.
History can be a heavy subject, but it doesn’t have to be. Here’s an awesome collection of photographs from the 1920s-1940s covering something a little bit more light-hearted and everyday – women’s beauty products and procedures. People had regular everyday lives back then as well. They worried about many of the same things then that we worry about now. However, curling your hair or smoothing your wrinkles 60-70 years ago looked a lot different than it does now.
Almost everybody knows the Addams family – their creepy monochrome antics are a TV classic. Which makes these pictures all the more surprising, then – they indicate that the Addams family’s living room set was covered in pink, red, turquoise, and other decidedly non-Addams-family-ish colors. In black-and-white films, characters often had to wear strange shades of lipstick (like brown or green) to get the right shades to appear on black-and-white film.
Winter is coming! These beautiful pictures of ice-covered lighthouses by U.S.-based photographer Thomas Zakowski might make you feel colder just by looking at them. The lighthouses are so completely frozen over that they look like fantastic icy fairy-tale towers out of “The Chronicles of Narnia. The beautiful icicles are a testament both to nature’s creative wonder and its destructive force.
