Tumblr Thread: Dude Actually Having Fun In an Old Picture

As ridiculously out of place as it seems, this picture is actually confirmed by the American Museum of Natural History as being totally legit. In a world where every single photo of old-timey people is dour as hell, it makes sense to actually have fun with it. The saddest thing is that, with the photo being about 120 years old, we don't get to talk to this guy. For more interesting history stuff, here's a Tumblr Thread that makes history fun.

Awkward and Amazing Glamour Shots

Some of these are definitely ironic, but it's never the one's you want. You can never be too sure what old school fashion will stay fresh, but you can be pretty sure that thousand yard stares and painfully cheesy photo editing was never really that popular to begin with. These make us want to book our own photo shoot.

Weird and Awkward Band Photos

Before all the stylists, art direction and good lighting, a band is just a bunch of people who are trying to convince everyone that they're a band. Sometimes the pieces fit together, and sometimes they don't. This can lead to some incredibly weird and awkward album covers. Everyone has growing pains, and with that said, there's actually some legit bands in here.

The story goes like this: over 70 years ago a World War II soldier filled 31 rolls of film with pictures, and in 2014, The Rescued Film Project, recovered all 31 of those rolls. What follows, is a video showing what went into the development of these photos, and then as an audience, we even get to see some of them! Pretty neat.

Photographer Takes Photos of Everyday People Doing Tasks With and Without Clothes and Her Reason is Heartwarming

Sophia Vogel is a German photographer who aims to reduce the shame and bashfulness we all feel when we are without our clothes. 


"I want to point out that being naked should feel just as natural as being clothed," she said."If you think of it right, we are all naked underneath our clothes."

"The pressure of being a sexual being is omnipresent for every human being. We are observed and judged every day, and the fashion industry lavishes beauty ideals and criticism on us. We set high standards for ourselves. I want to speak up against these ridiculous standards."

"By presenting all kinds of different body shapes and natural postures I would love to show that everybody is beautiful in their own way. I love to present nudity in an aesthetic manner without any sexual context. Not every single nude photograph should be linked to sexuality."
