Wilson Bentley was the first photographer to develop an effective way of capturing individual snowflakes. Through this method, Bentley was able to effectively document the unique structure of flakes.
His work is all in the public domain now (and was always, apparently, as he never claimed copyright on his photographs—one of the early champions of Creative Commons, sounds like), and as such, I thought he deserves a shout-out.
The final picture is a photograph of Bentley at work.
On the left we have the lyrics from Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines. On the right we rape survivors participating in Project Unbreakable, showing the various things that were said to them by their rapist.
i think this is the most powerful photoset i’ve ever seen on tumblr.
Reblogging until you understand why this song is so vile
Wow i’m REALLY glad I saw this because I couldn’t really understand how the lyrics were related to rape until I saw this post. Forever reblog
Helen Friel - “Here’s Looking at Euclid” (paper sculptures of mathematician Oliver Byrne’s illustrations of Euclid’s Elements, 2012)
