Was This Miley Cyrus Nude Photo Meant For Liam’s Eyes Only?

Miley Cyrus‘s friend Vijat Mohindra recently posted some very steamy pics of the newly-engaged singer/actress on his photography website, and there is some talk that this was not the agreement. Allegedly, the photos– especially one in particular which showcases a nude Miley in the bathtub– were meant for Miley‘s fiancé Liam Hemsworth, and no one else was to see them. Well, they’re online now, so here’s hoping this is just a rumor. I’m not trying to break up a happy home, if ya know what I mean :) Check out the pics inside!

This Mom Was Banned From Facebook Over A Controversial Photo

The Breastfeeding Debate Rages On
Cute, Creepy, Or Stupid?

Oh boy. I really thought that post on attachment parenting and pop culture was gonna put an end to all conversations about breastfeeding and motherhood and children; so much for having the final say, lol. And truthfully, this may not really be a breastfeeding issue. Lauren Ferrari is a mother of two and she shared what I think is a kind of private picture on Facebook. For some reason, she wanted everyone to see her younger daughter ‘play breastfeeding’ from her older daughter. But Facebook didn’t think it was cute (nor did many others) at all and they temporarily banned her. Check out the video to see what Lauren, and others have to say on the matter.

This Austrian Photographer’s Underwater Exhibit Is Breathtaking

"Life Below The Surface"

Oh my gosh. Haven’t you always wanted to go scuba diving and enjoy brilliant photography at the same time? Of course you have; because you’re all artsy and weird and wonderful just like me. And you think an underwater photography exhibit is the most brilliant idea since… well, probably ever. Andreas Franke is an Austrian photographer. He lives in Vienna with his family, and he  recently created his own parallel universe on Vandenberg, where a shipwrecked boat was sunken to create an artificial Reef off Key West. In his exhibit (titled Life Below The Surface), art collides with nature, and ballerinas dance on the ocean floor. It’s fancy, and fantasy, and it’s all in the gallery. Because we have photo galleries now. Because we’re Pink Is The Newer Blog.

A Photographer Shares Amazing, But Controversial Photos Of Children’s Rooms

Americans Versus Other?

The Huffington Post has a fantastic online series of photography projects with a cultural bend. This week they’re introducing James Mollison‘s book, Where Children Sleep, which was published a while back (as PITNBrs Becca and Missy pointed out). Mollison has taken amazing, powerful photos of children and their rooms from around the world. I enjoyed the pictures immensely, but a lot of readers are accusing Mollison of bias and really, lack of creativity. The difference between the rooms of the kids in America and the kids in say, Palestine is vast (for obvious reasons). But did the artists portray American kids as the spoiled, rich brats that many of them aren’t? Checkie out inside.

Are Jenny Saville’s Paintings Feminist, Misogynist Or Just Grotesque?

Art And The Femme

Jenny Saville is a world-renowned contemporary painter with a new solo exhibit at the Modern Art Oxford in the UK. Saville is known for painting the human body– usually that of a woman’s– with little desire to evoke traditional ideas of beauty, let alone femininity. In fact many of her nudes are of morbidly obese women, or depict women who appear to be battered and bruised. Still, she’s described as “kind of a feminist” and I’d like to take a closer look with the PITNBrs to see if that’s how this art should be classified. And I warned you– they’re either feminist, misogynist, or grotesque (or something else), so be prepared. And if your bosses don’t appreciate nudes, some of these are also NSFW.
