Interesting photos from his work for Look Magazine during his late teen years in the mid-forties.
As evidenced by last night’s Wheel, Vanna White is still a babe. We’ll take any excuse though to look through some early pictures of the most beautiful letter turner ever.
Until the Friday before Christmas, we’ll be posting one product a day to help make the holiday the most gifted one yet
GUCCI: The Making Of is 384-pages of decadence. Published by Rizzoli ($53 – $85)
A nice wall in LA to dedicate the blu-ray release of Rise of The Planet of the Apes on Twentienth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

When TWBE asked me to put together a holiday kids’ gift guide I was a little bit torn, after all the idea of me having to let you know what kinds of gifts to buy a kid is kind of defeating. But then I thought about all of those of you out there who know kids, but don’t have kids and maybe aren’t sure what to get for kids that will make them happy but also not freak their parents out. How do you climb that slippery slope? Answer: Books. Any time you can give a parent books they will be happy. Sure the kid would probably rather have a remote controlled helicopter but that’s what Santa is for. Besides, chances are that helicopter will be broken within the month, a good book can inspire kids forever. So, here are ten books that I think make great gifts for the holidays or any time.
Martha Cooper has a new book out with Dokument Press and a corresponding show opening Friday night (12/9) at Urban Folk Art in Brooklyn. Featuring previously unpublished photographs from her early days in Japan, the works document Japanese tattooing (irezumi) and the artist Horibun I at work.

Last night saw the photography show and concurrent auction of model Behati Prinsloo’s photographs documenting a journey in Haiti. The proceeds went to LakayPAM, a charity based in Haiti that provides health care, education and shelter to poor children and orphans. Her model friends were in attendance, as was Julia Chesky who took the pictures you see above.
Todd James, Devin Flynn, Billy Grant, Joe Grillo, and Ian Flynn. On view at Cooper Cole until January 22, 2012.
I am going to give you my opinion and my opinion says that holidays are not that cool unless it’s Halloween over and over again. But Dave who runs this site thinks you dear readers want some new fresh gift ideas. So in no order at all I give you a bunch of crap to waste your money on for your ungrateful friends – BOOO!
Mario Sorrenti is pretty much the man. How could you not be when you get tapped to shoot the most coveted calendar in the world? He’s the first Italian photographer in the 39 issue history to photograph the Pirelli Calendar, which is actually pretty strange considering the tyre manufacturer has its roots in the country. Featuring models Isabeli Fontana, Kate Moss, Lara Stone, Natasha Poly, Joan Small, Edita Vilkeviciute, Malgosia, Saskia de Brauw, and Guinevere Van Seenus, as well as actresses Milla Jovovich, Rinko Kikuchi, and Margareth Madé, the cult calendar fittingly named ‘Swoon’ is an object of desire. Also for the first time ever, the calendar’s presentation has changed: the photographs are now contained in a sleek canvas portfolio, with the viewer having to change the pictures to whichever month they desire.
Women in the Art World know how to hustle and look good doing it.
Here is a series of photos from Art Basel Miami Beach shot for us by Ruediger Glatz at BHP.com.de.
Signs of success surrounded the opening of 2011’s installation of Art Basel Miami Beach. We saw a convention center full of collectors rushing to their favorite galleries for a chance to buy works from a stock of blue-chip artists.
Here we present pretty much every piece worth seeing.
