Josef Hoflehner

Another cracking photograph from the Jet Airliner series by Josef Hoflehner.

Taken in 2011 and captioned “Air France Airbus A340-300, arriving from Paris-Charles de Gaulle,” the photograph, like all in the series, is completely unstaged and captured spontaneously.

Nipple Light

Nipple Light

“These lamps are turned on when you pull their nipples.”

Designed by Naama Arbel, these felt lamps have silicon covers over an LED light source and a switch mechanism, which must be pulled outwards to turn the lamps on and pushed inwards to turn them off.

In 1976, Shiro Kuramata took advantage of a newly-invented adhesive to create this glass chair, which is perfectly functional despite its appearance of unreliable fragility and weightlessness.

Made by Mihoya Glass in glass and Photobond 100 adhesive.

Naked Hollywood: Weegee in Los Angeles

In 1946, the tabloid photographer known as Weegee relocated from New York City to Los Angeles. Abandoning the grisly crime scenes for which he was best known, Weegee trained his camera instead on Hollywood celebrities, starlets, autograph seekers, and shop-window mannequins, sometimes distorted through trick lenses and multiple exposures.

Naked Hollywood: Weegee in Los Angeles reproduces Weegee’s pulp-paperback, originally released in 1955, documenting the lurid, irresistible undersides of stardom, fandom, commerce, and self-promotion in mid-century Los Angeles. In addition to presenting approximately 200 photographs, many of which have never before been shown, the book explores Weegee’s related work as an author, filmmaker, and photo-essayist.
