    I love that you are highlighting these photographers and all their amazing work, but I wonder if you might touch on some instagram users that have less than say 200k followers. Like someone who has just a couple hundred. I want to get in on the ground floor, not jump on a band wagon! All i’m saying is that most of the photogs you push here don’t really need the exposure. Anyway, I love this blog and all you do, this is just a humble suggestion. Thanks!

    • hi seth, thanks for the suggestion – if you look at the previous features most of the photographers do not have the following that some of these have. this is actually the first time i’ve featured a group with followings this large.

    Recently I was extremely low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this! – aln7

Not only are the paint pigments made from the soils where Brazier lives, her paintings emerge through stacking and weaving, processes meant to resemble the physical structures and textures of the home.

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
