This is a fashion photograph I picked up from Nick Faust’s facebook feed. If you like art, you must follow him. I love how indiscriminate he is about genres, categories and eras. He shifts easily from impressionism to glamor shots of muscled men from the 80s. It’s also a welcome change if your feed is cluttered with people complaining about getting stuck on the tarmac.
If you watch a film with animal performers, consider that the animals have no fucking idea that they are in a movie. Hahaha that’s messed up. Those dogs and orcas are living life, playing honest games within the frame of multi-million dollar lies. Watch films, TV programs, and other videos your sober lens understands concretely and re-see the seams, the borders, the impossibilities.
Here, the photograph beautifully clashes a model’s legs with a dog’s performance, which isn’t a performance at all: the dog isn’t acting or posing. It’s a wonderfully jarring moment of instinct that’s hard to make sense of. However they managed to get a dog to bite a leg without hurting the model is beyond me. Can we even trust that it is real? As Dr. Teens says, the dog is playing an “honest game” with the fashion world’s lies.

The spinning vortex of Saturn’s north polar storm resembles a deep red rose of giant proportions surrounded by green foliage in this false-color image from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. Measurements have sized the eye at a staggering 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) across with cloud speeds as fast as 330 miles per hour (150 meters per second).
