men should take advantage of the lack of dress code rules set for guys and wear mini skirts and tank tops to school every day
OH MY GOD LAST YEAR THE DUDES ON MY CLASS HAVE DONE IT
AND THEY GOT ALL CALLED IN THE PRINCIPAL’S ROOM
BUT THEY DIDNT GOT IN TROUBLE BECAUSE
THEY SAID EXACTLY IT “BUT THOSE RULES ARE ONLY FOR GIRLS”
I’M NOT EVEN JOKING
Now THIS is subversive. And says a lot.
Rules for Freelancers
I enjoy the liberating quality of digital, the 400 plus slots open on the chip vs. the 38 on the roll; and also the ability to work in such low light … but I tend to overshoot … and I also feel like so much of what I learned about timing by working in the street gets thrown out the window. Rather than waiting for that one moment when things will come together and taking a single frame … I will tap the button four times and end up missing the moment. My favorite thing is when I come off of a few days of shooting digital for a job and return to film and do my own work. I am more willing to try and make a picture than I normally am with film and at the same time more careful than I normally am with digital. —

So here’s another photo from my latest shoot with Callan Tham in Singapore! I was trying to “think curvy” ;) (You might have already seen it on Tumblr) and I also posted it in this little drama unfolding on Tiny Nibbles about my so-called “weight”… again.
This time it…
I’m not sure why it’s acceptable to make comments like that about videos or photographs. All that matters is, “did you like the video/photograph?” Anything else is superfluous.
But in this case, it is much more insidious. It is a judgment of a person’s worth based on their outward appearance, and even though some men get treated the same way, we don’t nearly get hit as hard as women. Even women seem to see fit to judge who is too skinny and who is too fat. There is almost no one in between.
And that pisses me off.
Whatever the reason, this exhibition reaffirms Mr. Winogrand’s process and importance and brings us to an interesting moment in visual culture. Mr. Winogrand, we’re told, was preoccupied with taking pictures. But so, increasingly, are many of us, as we use our phones to photograph whatever we think is weird or noteworthy and then rush to post it online. So are those who compulsively photograph every meal they eat and everything they wear, or take a self-portrait every day. New devices like the tiny, clip-on Memoto camera, which automatically snaps a photograph every 30 seconds, make it easy to take more than a thousand shots a day. Apps under development for Google Glass will encourage us to take pictures not only more often, but in and, literally, with the blink of an eye. — Garry Winogrand, Who Retreated from Editing - NYTimes.com (via photographsonthebrain)
