Laurence Philomene describes her photos as a “pre-teen sleepover gone wrong,” but I still kind of wish I went to this party. The 20-year-old freelance photographer from Montreal explores gender and femininity in many of her groups of photographs, but “Sugar High” takes the cake!The photographer was also inspired by fine artist Wolfgang Tillmans, particularly this quote: "As soon as you represent something, it’s always a mediated, ...

This is Patterson's second solo release and it couldn't be coming out at a better time. Patterson's newest musical ... Read More
If you’re as done with this week as we are, the moody, experimental sounds of Jihae are a perfect fit right about now. Not only is the South Korean singer crafting a weird-wave, synth-meets-rock-then-says-hey-to-soul genre of her own, but as a multimedia artist she incorporates her artistic vision into all aspects of her music. Take, for example, her latest work, the video for “Illusion of You,” the single off her fourth album of the same name. ... Read More
I’m an illustration student – which is basically just an excuse to go see animated movies as an adult without children and not look creepy. So yes, that’s why I as a 21- year-old woman have intense opinions on todays animated features – especially when it comes to gender and race representation.

The past few years have seen an explosion of retro-leaning, surf-y bands with style for days. But our favorites, bar none, are the Dum Dum Girls. Led by frontwoman Dee Dee Penny, the band is known for its updated girl-group sound and goth-princess stagewear. Think the Shangri-Las (if they smoked a lot more weed) or the Ronettes (if they traded their beehives for black leather jackets.) Their third LP Too True finds the band departing from its ’60s ...

Looks like Orange Is the New...back. (Sorry.) Despite the onslaught of other binge-able TV shows in the interim months (True Detective, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, etc.) the absense of Jenji Kohan's sleeper hit Netflix series has been felt. Much has already been written about how thrilling it is to see an unflinching depiction of women – almost exclusively women – moving through the annals of prison. So many former taboos in a single show! In ... Read More

The photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko spent much of his childhood in nature; following his father on mushroom hunting expeditions, he often crouched to the ground in rapt fascination with the tiny, slimy, and colorful wonderland of bugs. As an adult, he returns to this kingdom of imagination, cataloguing the daily lives of snails.Breaking from the objectivity of traditional nature photography, Mishchenko’s soulful images read like a children’s ...

I have never been so jealous of another girl in my life, and the reason why I feel this way is so incredibly spectacular, I’m shocked that I’m not making this up. 13-year-old Ashol-Pan of  Western Mongolia is currently being trained in the art of falconry: hunting foxes and small prey from the Altai mountains using an eagle as your weapon of choice. As a child, this is the sort of career I would fantasize about for hours with glazed eyes, ... Read More
