Fashimals is a mysterious group of photoshop wizards who combine our friends from the animal kingdom with the hippest fashion statements from the streets of Williamsburgh, NY to the runways in Milan, Italy. How about a Terry Richardson weasel like creature (pictured above) or slick looking lizard in a three piece suit (pictured after the jump?) Fashimals brings all these looks to you and more with a great sense of humor and impeccable style. What else can we ask for?
I found Julio B Esq’sBouduoir series during my weekly stroll through the B/D Creative Pic Pool. Julio’s photos walk a fine line and could quickly be dismissed as shocking snapshots of drunk/high people taking part in bizarre acts.However I think there is something that sets his work apart from all the shock and awe Terry Richardson wannabes that deserves a closer look. When I first saw these photos I immediately thought about the infamous Calvin Klein ads that were scrutinized for their basement kiddie porn appeal. I can see Julio’s photos taking place in the same old basement as the CK shoots complete with cheap wood paneling and 30 year old shag carpet. Creepy or not Julio’s photos have an erie calmness to them that separates them from the pack. I liked the series even more once I read his text about the inspiration for the set:
“Historically, the boudoir formed part of the private suite of rooms of a lady, for bathing and dressing, adjacent to her bedchamber, being the female equivalent of the male cabinet. In later periods, the boudoir was used as a private drawing room, and was used for other activities, such as embroidery or entertaining intimate acquaintances.”
