At the time of her death in 2009, Vivian Maier was known only as a lifelong nanny and secretive loner. Today, she is hailed as one of the most important photographers of the 20th century.
It's a miracle that street photographer Vivian Maier’s remarkable work ever saw the light of day. A career nanny who worked primarily in the affluent suburbs of Chicago for 40 years, starting in the 1950s, Maier took hundreds of thousands of pictures with her ... Read More

Skin: we're all wrapped up in it. But some of us have to consider it more often, and more seriously, than others. How would you feel if your skin bubbled and swelled wherever it was touched? Photographer Ariana Page Russell decided to make art out of it.

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!

"As soon as you represent something, it’s always a mediated, ... Read More

The distinct experience of being a young woman is one of the most difficult things to capture. Petra Collins, in collaboration with Arvida Bystrom, has come pretty close to making the melancholy of those formative years tangible. (Perhaps you remember Petra Collins as the artist behind the controversial menstruating vulva t-shirt sold at American Apparel?)
Collins' photo series "Lines and Curves" wraps up the awkwardness we all experienced in a pastel ... Read More

I don’t know where you are, but here at BUST HQ, it’s a really poopy day: it’s rainy, windy and way colder than it should be for the first day of August. But even if it's sunny and 70 with a light breeze coming off the beach, these photos of quokkas will brighten up your day x 1,000:
The quokka, aka the world’s squee-inducing animal, is possibly the first Australian mammal glimpsed by Europeans. They were originally ... Read More

Here’s one unusual animal pairing that’ll get your heart warming in no time. Little remains known about the story’s background, but the adorable photos tell it all: a mastiff adopted a baby chimpanzee as one of its own. Cue endless baby talk.
It’s unclear whether the baby chimp’s mother passed away or abandoned the newborn, but after a zoo caretaker took the chimp home and introduced it to the mastiff and her puppies, the ... Read More

Last week's parties were an absolute blast! Our sexy V-Day crafting party at Babeland Soho was packed to the gills, and over 75 people danced, drank, crafted, and snacked the night away at our Love & Sex Issue release party at Bar Matchless.
