Photographer Michael Pharaoh is only 22 years old. Yet already, he possesses the uncanny ability to capture the story written on a stranger’s face.

New Zealand-based Pharaoh created the gripping series “The Homeless of L.A.” while on vacation in California. The photographs evoke, in tremendous detail, the identity of Hollywood’s homeless population in a series of muted yet stylistically gorgeous up-close portraits.

“[The project] was fascinating to me because we don’t have the same plethora of homeless people as L.A,” Pharaoh explained in a statement for the series. “It was interesting to hear all of their stories and how they came to live on the streets. This project was both a sad yet humbling one.”

While the homeless population is all too often treated as invisible, Pharaoh’s high definition portraits explore every facet of their visages to capture a striking and honest portrait of a complete stranger.

We’ve spoken to many tiny home dwellers who think a small house is a happy house. And in an attempt to spread the word that small is beautiful, Jeremy Beasley is visiting unique and teeny homes and documenting the visits on film.

In the video above, Beasley visits one woman who lives in one of the shipping container houses, which are used as student housing in Amsterdam. Although, the home is a mere 215 square feet, the young woman says she has all the room she needs, including enough space for her cat. In fact, she loves her place so much, she cant ever see herself living in a big home.

Hilda, 1950s Pinup Girl, Makes Us Very Happy

The phrase “pinup girl” often conjures up images of hourglass figures and vintage fashion. But how often are the pin-ups we see actually plus-size women?

Not often enough. That’s why we’re so excited that Hilda, originally drawn in the 1950s by illustrator Duane Bryers, resurfaced on the Internet this week.

According to the blog Messy Nessy Chic, Hilda is a vintage icon who was “one of history’s longest running calendar queens” alongside Marilyn Monroe and others.

“She’s a creation out of my head. I had various models over the years, but some of my best Hilda paintings I’ve ever done were done without a model,” Bryers said in an interview with illustrator Les Toil.

Mini Mona Lisa Painted On World’s Smallest ‘Canvas’ Using Nanotechnology (PHOTOS)

The enigmatic image is perhaps the most reproduced in art history, but it’s never before been painted on such a small canvas.

Using a novel nanotechnique, researchers have made a miniature Mona Lisa that stretches 30 microns across, just a third of the width of a human hair.

A team from Georgia Tech created the molecular masterpiece using an atomic force microscope and a process dubbed ThermoChemical NanoLithography, or TCNL for short.

Each 125-nanometer pixel of the “Mini Lisa” represents a confined set of chemical reactions. The technique allowed the researchers to control the amount of heat applied over each pixel to vary the number of new molecules created in each spot. More heat resulted in more molecules and lighter shades of gray. In this way, the team made the tiny copy of Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous work, pixel by pixel.
