47 Stunning photographs of people around the world.

this is one of the most beautiful things i’ve ever seen

I empathize with the girl second from the bottom. That’s EXACTLY what happens to me in black and white film; freckles turn black and I look like I’ve been imitating Jackson Pollock in my garage all day. Or possibly painting the ceiling a lovely shade of charcoal.

Lovely photography though.

Wait, like, that’s something to empathize with in a NEGATIVE way? Cause I have spent my life wishing my freckles from childhood would have gotten darker and not lighter. I have spotted splotchy arms and shoulders, and this hideous light raccoon veneer of freckles across my face. I’ve always felt like I was not for real “freckled” because I wasn’t like her. I love that look.

My catwoman cosplay!! All my plans to take professional pictures in my Catwoman costume have fallen through so I just took a few in my bedroom. It was pretty fun. I freaking love wearing this costume. 

Oh and I made a facebook page!

Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg's nonprofit organization, LeanIn.org, has partnered with Getty Images to “to create a line of stock photos that depict mature, professional businesswomen, rather than ones who appear dumb, subservient, sexualized, or sometimes all three at once.” 

One recent study found that only 3% of creative directors are women. In journalism, men continue to fill the majority of top editor roles — and this likely extends to photo editor roles as well. We’ve all seen Mad Men. This isn’t the 1950s, but the advertising industry is not exactly a model for gender equality. None of this is to say that men can’t accurately depict women in visual imagery, but if we’ve learned anything from the research, it’s that gender equality in every industry leads to better and more representative outcomes.”

"The new library of photos shows professional women as surgeons, painters, bakers, soldiers and hunters. There are girls riding skateboards, women lifting weights and fathers changing babies’ diapers.”

how is this even a headline outside of buzzfeed?

I mean, I’m 100% in favor of this. I hope they continue to select both WoC and modern women who aren’t in the 1950 fashion ideal. And I think this is a great first step! But seriously, headlines. Don’t be a hyperbolic idjit. Of course it’s the nature of the business. But don’t go above and beyond the current dumb standards.
