LABSN Editor’s Note: Paul makes some excellent points with this post on his Zjuzdme.org blog. What do you think?
One-finger selfies. You’ve probably heard about it, seen plenty of examples of it. The one-finger selfie. Apparently it started though an Anime character that demonstrated how to do it: I had…
LABSN Editor’s Note: I ran across Nick and Lin’s blog and found what they had to say very informative and interesting. Check them out.

LABSN Editor’s Note: Someday I’ll participate in one of Spencer Tunick’s events.
LANSN Editor’s Note: This looks like a fun event for all involved. What a great way to introduce the public to the beauty of the nude body.

LABSN Editor’s Note: I’ve always had this thing for Betty Page and Bunny Yeager, so I thought I’d share this article with an interview of Betty by Bunny on selvedgeyard.com.
For me, Bettie Page & Bunny Yeager epitomize iconic American pinup photography. Not just of the 1950s… Ever. In 1954, Bettie Page was working with Irving Klaw in NYC and decided a break w…
