This picture makes me so happy. (I follow a blog outside of tumblr about two acrobats who are also lovers. This photo is overwhelmingly beautiful.)

matchbook-stories:


In 1934 the MPAA voluntarily passed the Motion Picture Production Code, more generally known as the Hays Code, largely to avoid governmental regulation. The code prohibited certain plotlines and imagery from films and in publicity materials produced by the MPAA. Among others, there was to be no cleavage, no lace underthings, no drugs or drinking, no corpses, and no one shown getting away with a crime.
A.L. Shafer, the head of photography at Columbia, took a photo that intentionally incorporated all of the 10 banned items into one image.
The photograph was clandestinely passed around among photographers and publicists in Hollywood as a method of symbolic protest to the Hays Code.

By Brooks Shane Salzwedel, carefully layered mixed media and drawing to make these really unique landscapes. It adds so much depth to each piece just by having several layers of images built up on one another.
