Click here for a collection of some of the work of slain Charlie Hebdo illustrator Cabu, who at age 75 was executed by Islamic terrorists. As the post indicated, the work of Cabu and of the publication in general was and is very liberal, anti-racist, anti-Islamophobic, anti-fascist.
Fascinating read on a perverted artist of the past—always wondered what ever became of people like this, who made their livings creating things that at the time were against the law.
In order, the images are entitled: “Femme”, “Leaving the Darkness”, “Artist”, “Becoming a Virgin”, “Modern Medusa”, “Painting Love”, “Rebirth”, “She Wolf”, “Sacrifice of Media” & “Redemption”.
I wanted to call attention to the work of Seyed Mohsen Pourmohseni Shakib, an artist in Iran whose imagery is in defiance of his country's take on art and self-expression. They remind me of '70s experimental photography, in particular (though stripped down) of Steven Arnold. Thematically, there's definitely a Kahlo try in there. My favorites are “Painting Love” and “Modern Medusa”.
The artist says:
“This photo collection is not only a bunch of pictures which try to escape from reality. Each picture is a part of reality that we try to ignore and bury them in the deepest place that we can find at our unconscious. First, I've faced with each frame when I was traveling in my unconscious and focused on them to found what they wanted to say. Next, I've tried to make a visual connection between mind and eyes via photography.”
More about the artist:
Seyed Mohsen Pourmohseni Shakib was born in 1988 in Rasht, Iran. At age 17, he started his art work as screenwriter and editor. At the same time, he went to university to study civil engineering. He became a member of “Rasht Young Cinema Society” and made his first and second animated shorts—White Paper (2010) and Game Over (2013—which have been shown at 35 national and international film festivals.

The new Michael Stokes book—Bare Strength—is out now, just in time for holiday gift-giving. The project, which is packed like roe in a mama salmon with eye-popping images of beautiful men, is more than just another coffee-table book—it's also a Kickstarter phenomenon (it reached its funding within 48 hours) and a charitable endeavor.
Stokes created a limited edition of 100 books signed by all three amputee vets pictured in his work, which raised $10K for the Semper Fi fund—an amount matched by the founder of GoDaddy.
Artistry, charity...this has to be the most guilt-free photo book of naked dudes ever.
