On the hunt for what it means to be human.
Basically, I love music and although I'm not too much of a hipster myself, I dig the trend and I think the creative stuff people come up with are just awe-inspiring. The items I post I hope instill in you the sense of belief that you are just fine where you are in life. Everything you want will come and everything you already have and done has been accomplished because you are supposed to be here. You matter to the world, and I think that by showcasing the ideas, images, songs, and words from people of all different shapes, sizes, and backgrounds, we will grow together and shape the world to be a better place than it was when we had found it.
Please, don’t worry so much. Because in the end, none of us have very long on this earth. Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the Summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day… make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular. I know I did. — Robin Williams.
Crying Men is a series of photographic portraits of famous film actors that explores the relationship between society’s perception of what is masculine and attractive. Artist Sam Taylor-Wood took portraits of her subjects, well known leading men, as if they were in character. Engaging in the emotional connections, each image is a portrait not only of the man, but of the stereotype that “real men don’t cry”.
“Some of the men cried before I even finished loading the camera, but others found it really difficult, said Taylor-Wood. “People can decide for themselves which they think are the authentic tears and which they think are fake.”
