Fantomatick is a slightly surrealistic often disturbing French photographic blogspot often NSFW.
Just...keep...on... clicking ... away

A lot of WTF in that one small webspace...

Artists and models (NSFW, but superb).

OH THANK YOU SO MUCH. Since amature d'art stopped updating I've really missed a daily dose of sexy wtf. This goes right in my RSS feed.

Magnificent, compelling and appalling.

Product of Whatthefuckistan. Imported by Huh?

Also, beardcat is what you get when you cross Dalí with the internet and a handbag full of drugs. Badarse, but I'm still not sure which one is the boss.

I don't think anyone will ever know.

This one is my favourite, followed by this one.

Whenever I see something like this labeled 'NSFW', I become re-grateful that where I W, this is perfectly S. Thank you, oh non-corporate job. And adamvasco for the link.

This is my kinda photoblog. Thanks!

The images behind "away" are by Shirin Neshat, a great Iranian photographer working in NYC. I have enjoyed shows and speaking occasions she's been involved with over the years.

ha! i love it that under the 'freaks' category i find images from one of my favorite books from childhood ("Freaks"), boris karloff, and the man who gave me my first professional piercing, fakir musafar.

joy!

I love that the sideshow people are credited. I've been reading their wikipedia bios, such as the remarkable life of Baltimorean Johnny Eck.

Slightly absurd that under each photo is a '© photographer' considering they are all published without permission.

ALL RIGHTS FOR PHOTOGRAPHS PRESENTED ON THIS BLOG BELONG TO THE ARTISTS AND YET I'M GOING TO JUST FLAUNT THEM ANYWAY.

What is this guy doing? Is the stick and columns some kind of drawing technique?
posted by Mitheral at 7:45 AM on June 8, 2010


This is highly awesome, thanks!

Does anyone have any info on the beard guy? I've also got a couple pics of him, possibly from the same shoot but in different poses, sitting in a massive throne and holding beard out everywhere. No idea where they came from, tho...

There is likely a grid of strings in the frame that matches the number of squares on his drawing paper. It is a trick to accurately draw a foreshortened subject.

I was pleased that at least he provided attribution. Most "these are cool images" blogs don't bother with that much.

This wonderful picture of Dali in his studio was taken by Yul Brynner?

I think the Bald One just posthumously broke my Cool-O-Meter.

This is fantastic. Thanks.

That Dali au Travail...wow. The artist himself is far more exotic than the model in that one.

These are just luscious and thought-provoking. Thank you!

Brilliant post, adamvasco! There's no limit to the human imagination and the photographer's art.

These are great. Thanks!

I am haunted by this set (FYI - disturbing) especially the 10th photo down. What is happening there?!
posted by pinky at 11:30 AM on June 8, 2010


Pinky: It's from a photo series called "María Lionza. La diosa de los ojos de agua" by Cristina García Rodero, about an indigenous religion in Venezuela. Other pics on Google.

from the Rodero pics: so good.

Maybe I'm just a big softy, but I find this an incredibly moving photo.:

In fact, page after page of that blog is full of beauty and wonder.

Yeah, its a step in the right direction, I just thought it kind of funny that he used © in a case where it was clearly a violation of ©.

This image is supposedly from the set of Star Trek. I haven't seen them all, but did Spock really spin records or is this 'shopped?
posted by sanko at 10:11 PM on June 9, 2010


mega ultra super 'shopped
