DIY: USE YOUR MASCARA AS EYELINER

I saw these amazing shots by Benjamin Zank via my Flipboard. He’s a young Fine Art Photographer based in New York City. According to PetaPixel;

He caught the photography bug a few years ago, at the age of 18, after picking up a Pentax ME Super 35mm film SLR from the attic of his grandmother’s house, and has been creating incredible concept images ever since.

Zank graduated recently from the SUNY Purchase with a degree in journalism. In recent years, he has been working on a 365 Project through his Flickr account, where he regularly posts surreal images with simple ideas. Many of the images are self portraits, and they’re often inspired by the work of photographer Rodney Smith.

‘A Man About Town’

“A well-suited man is a sure way to a woman’s pants heart”  - Anonymous. I’m not one to dispute this, at least not while staring at the vibrant, eclectic collection by Nigerian design label, McMeka!

As was intended, my eyes are drawn to the bright red and blue, the aesthetic of that briefcase. I love the deliberate over-sized lapels and that asymmetrically cut deep-green piece. If you ask me, I…
