These Family Photo Recreations Are The Best Things You’ll See All Day. What is Going On In #20??

Culture
No one knows exactly where it started, but the internet is now teeming with pictures of people recreating their childhood photos as adults. There's even an entire subreddit for it. While these recreations are usually funny and make great gifts for parents (hint hint), they can also sometimes be a bit creepy. Here are 30 childhood photo recreations showing the best of both worlds. 1.) Dad still looks good in this picture. 2.) Welp, that is certainly some family togetherness. 3.) First best friend. 4.) One for the Xmas cards. 5.) Brothers and sister. Those are some hairy legs. ...

Looking Inside People’s Fridges May Be The Weirdest, Most Intimate Art Ever.

If you want someone to know what kind of person you are, you can open up your mouth and chat with them for hours about your interests, your family, and what you do for a living--or, as made evident by Mark Menjivar's photography project "Refrigerators," you could just open up your fridge and let them take a peak. It might not tell them what your favorite movie is or where you went to college, but, in a way, it will say even more. They say you are what you eat, but according to these photos, you are what you eat... and totally forget about until it smells so bad that you have to throw it in the garbage can. Take a look at these eye-opening and hunger-causing pictures! "Journalist/Designer/School Teacher | Austin, TX | 3-Person Household | Writes the obituaries for the loca...

This Father Took Photos Of All The Places His Little Boy Fell Asleep. And It’s Hilarious.

When reddit user Scevans09 posted a gallery of his son sleeping, I expected it to be boring. We've all seen kids sleeping. But I'm pretty sure you've never seen a kid fall asleep in this many awkward, crazy positions. His naps are basically an artform - and one I'm jealous of. I want to fall asleep literally anywhere. Just like him: Sitting up in a chair. Laying awkwardly. On the kitchen chairs. In the car, thinking. Under his brother. Mostly on the bed. In a Jean Claude Van Damme split. ...

Getting Your Car Vandalized Is No Fun — Unless This Guy Does It

Funny
If you came outside one morning to discover that someone had used your car as a canvas for their personal expression, you'd probably be rightfully ticked off. Destroying someone else's property is a crappy thing to do. But as with anything, there are exceptions. The exception in this case is artist and photographer Max Siedentopf, who prowls the night and gives people's cars some awesome makeovers. And it's all done without harming the vehicles. Siedentopf calls the project Slapdash Supercars. Max Siedentopf He uses cardboard and masking tape to add spoilers and other zippy accessories to ordinary cars. Since these additions can be peeled off, the "vandalism" is temporary and harmless. Max Siedentopf ...

This Shadow Has Been Showing Up In Photos For Years, And Now It Has A Name

Funny
While poring over dozens of vintage snapshots, art collector Jean-Marie Donat noticed a pattern. This perceived commonality had nothing to do with scenes, subjects, or backgrounds. It had nothing to do with how the images were staged or why they were captured in the first place. It had to do with someone behind the lens making his way to the fore.He's merely a shadow. He's a thousand people and a single man all at once. He's the missing link between otherwise dissonant, unrelated images. In Donat's mind, he's the predator. In a limited-edition book called Predator, Donat weaves his way through an imagined story -- one that takes an innocuous figure and turns it into something sinister. Innocences Bookmaker Inno...

Marc Da Cunha Lopes is a French artist who loves biology and science fiction. In his series of photographs entitled, 'Vertebrata' the artist explores both in the coolest fashion. These skeletons, which appear to be creatures from some unexplored moon in the Guardians of The Galaxy universe, are actually just blown up skeletons of birds, monkeys, cats and other critters. He set them in abandoned households and other locations so that in Da Cunha's mind it appears as though "they are looking for those who made them." This is way creepier than I thought it'd be... ...

This Old-Style Funeral Home Is Abandoned And It Looks Incredibly Freaky

Funny
In the realm of urban exploration, an abandoned, well-preserved funeral home is pretty much the holy grail of creepy locales. While that might sound like something difficult for the average person to find, Freaktography is no ordinary explorer.
