Will someone just make a movie with Don Cheadle as a ruthless king who flies falcons and wins every duel and whose whim decides who lives and dies already?
that sounds pretty neat
Abby Wambach for the ESPN Body Issue.
I love these photos. I love these photos because it’s the first time I can think of when I haven’t had to see a female athlete be overly sexualized and objectified. She’s naked, yes that’s the point of the issue (and the men are just as nude), but she’s powerful. She’s athletic and strong in both of these photos.
They just make me happy, okay?
This is like, Classical Greek Olympian style. Less, “Hurrrrr, she’s nekkid” and more “HOLY SHIT LOOK AT HOW AWESOMELY BADASS HER BODY IS GODDAMN”.
I like it.
I had to have a closer look to realize the photos were of a female athlete, because of how non-sexual they are.

Daniel Kukla - Captive Landscapes
"We as humans go to great lengths to satisfy our desire for a connection with the natural world, especially in our interactions with wild and exotic animals. Zoos are the primary site for this relationship, but they often obscure the conflicts inherent in maintaining and displaying captive wild animals. In this series, I photographed the interiors of animal enclosures at 12 different zoos across the US and Europe. These images invite the viewer to question the role of these constructed habitats, and explore the motivations behind collecting, preserving and controlling the natural world."

Are you sick of art history’s obsession with the gentle beauty of a female muse? Enough of these beautiful women with coy glances, flowing locks and milky soft skin — we’re ready for the men.
Nir Arieli's portrait series “Men” places men in traditionally feminine spaces and postures, illuminating the human characteristics that have, over time, become decidedly feminine traits. The following male muses are making us wish men felt free to explore their feminine sides more often. Behold, 11 reasons men should get in touch with a softer self.
