Faceless Portraits, Ewa Juszkiewicz

The vintage women of Ewa Juszkiewicz‘s hypnotizing portraits have experienced a decapitation of an unusual sort: their heads are all replaced by a series of inanimate object from plants to mollusks.

“In my paintings I take critical view on the way women have been pictured in history of painting and other visual media up to today,” Juszkiewicz explains in her artist’s statement. “I work mostly in the field of portrait, which I intend to approach from a different angle that avoids focusing on the appearance.”

Design: Aston Martin Lagonda Photographed by Tomek Olszowski

Cult cars don’t come much less conventional than the Aston Martin Lagonda. Only 645 were ever made, and they’re like no other car before or since. 

The wedge-shaped body is the height of a Porsche 911 but over five meters long, with an outrageously space-age dashboard. In this shoot by photographer Tomek Olszowski, a touch of seventies noir accents the car’s angular forms, introducing it’s beauty to a new general of design and car lovers alike.
