Put some “teeth” into it…

Fantich & Young, London based artist duo Mariana Fantich and Dominic Young, created a series of conceptual sculptures – “Apex Predator“,  set to address parallels between social evolution and evolution in the natural world. The original Apex Predator—described as predators with no predators of their own, residing at the top of the food chain.

“Nudes/Experimental” by Philippe Halsman

Philippe Halsman was an American portrait photographer who photographed some of the most celebrated figures of the mid-20th century—from artists to movies stars to intellectuals to politicians. His dynamic and surreal photography challenged the rules of the day by going against the soft focus and static style of the time and giving sharp focus to his subjects.
