Gentlemen Prefer Buttercreams


I came across this picture while doing a bit of blog trolling on the way to work this morning (Houston traffic is rife with opportunities to get off a quick text or sneak a peak at websites like Fark, where this comes from).  Terry Border’s Bent Objects is a collection of complex vignettes made from everyday items that range from humorous to dark, parody to social commentary.



Unsurprisingly, I was immediately reminded of George Zimble’s iconic photographs from the famous Marilyn Monroe “white dress” shoot in 1954.
