Video Interview with Brandon Stanton of 'Humans of New York'

Over a year ago we wrote about Brandon Stanton's project named 'Humans of New York' where he photographs random people in NYC and post the results on his blog (and Facebook). Back then his project was still small and not-so-known, but today he has millions of followers and each one of his photos go viral within seconds of posting.

Jaime Moore 's daughter, Emma, turned 5 recently. As a photographer, Jaime wanted to do a special photo shoot to mark that day. Having no ideas or inspiration, she turned to Google to search for ideas fitting the young age of 5 and get some direction, but the only ideas she could find are how to shoot young girls as Disney Princesses.

Terry Richardson and Miley Cyrus, at it Again (NSFW)

Terry Richardson and Miley Cyrus are completely, as you'd say in middle school terms, MFEO. Or made for each other if you can't remember that far back.
