Friday Photos: Sketchy Swedes, bodybuilders, and more December 5, 2008Photographyjnack Things one presumably doesn’t see every day: Martin Schoeller has captured a series of portraits of women bodybuilders. (From Kottke: “If you cover up the faces with your hands, they look like men in bikini tops and if you cover up the bodies, meth addicts.”) [Via] Fancy a round-up of Swedish 1970s dance band photos? [Via Jeff Tranberry, who says, “The real challenge is how to fit it into a relevant post! It’d be a good one for rickrolling some readers.”] Moments in time: Barbara Probst’s Split Second project captures the same moment from multiple perspectives. Game face: Robbie Cooper’s Immersion project aims to photograph facial expressions of people as they play video games, surf the web, and watch TV. The corresponding video isn’t super flattering. [Via] Fans of mid-century design/photography goodness should peep a visual remembrance of Lou Dorfsman.

Thanks for the reminder that it’s friday. Cool stuff too. p
[At least I got the day right for once. 😉 –J.]
Careful with those female bodybuilders. There are things that cannot be un-seen.

Nice way to finish the day Jack with a Nack.
As the song goes, “goodness gracious great balls of fire”

Okay kids … remember – nobody messes with those Teddy Boys!
Of the woman in Thor Silwéns, my wife remarked, “She’s the only one who got out free.” “Yeah,” I said, “but she looks like she’s part of some Texas polygamist cult…”
And I can’t believe there’s a band called the “Schytts.” Talk about truth in advertising! –J.]
I also liked the band below The Schytts [IIRC], who have one band member covering his ears whilst another plays his instrument.
