    The studio I'm a partner at, Mauve Bovine, just finished compiling a series of photo and video shoots, and made a book out of them. The subject started with the "Trash the Dress" wedding dress tradition, which started in the 70's I believe. Basically after the wedding, the bride would go on a photo shoot and fuck up her dress.

    There was a lot of work put into this over the last few months, 21 models, as well as large amounts of paint and fireworks and mud and whatever else we could use. Here's our video showing some of the shit we did:



    With this video we've also released three books, a small 7x7 one with ~40 pages, A 10x8 with ~60 pages and an identical 11x13, which isn't online yet. Click those links if you're interested in flipping through a few pictures, or maybe even buying one.

    And of course, it wouldn't be fair for the photographer to ask all these girls to fuck up their dresses without destroying his own suit.


    So enjoy. There will be more cool shit to come as soon as construction of my studio is complete.

    I don't really understand why it would be weird. It's not anything gross or violent. It's just girls not afraid to fuck shit up.

    Also your avatar is a cartoon man bleeding from empty eye sockets. You're probably not an authority on what veers from the norm.

    It's a good concept but the picture is ruined by sloppy editing and ridiculously fucked colours.

    It wasn't edited to look realistic. It's not at all a sloppy edit; it's just not disguising itself. It's a painting on the picture. It's exaggerate completely. But it tells a visual story.

    I feel like you're just talking shit without basis, just to talk shit. And no I didn't edit the pictures, I just know when something is good and when it isn't, and you're just wrong.

    Reminds me of those creepy vids on youtube that aren't "porn" but really are porn. You know like vids of girls smashing pies in their face or pouring hotsauce all over their feet.

    You are one of those creeps that want to drop loads on those hot sauce feet

    I've always been here. Haven't frequented General Discussion as much lately so didn't see you around.

    Glad you're back - awesome project you got there!

    Even so, it's still really sloppy, and if you didn't make it, please forward this to whoever did.

    This is pretty damn cool, man. I often find myself saying, "Man, I wish attractive women would pay me to take pictures of them ripping apart their clothes."

    You're living the dream, CB.

    Matter of preference, or different schools of thought? I think the pictures look quite nice as they are, but I suppose there are plenty who would argue that "less is more" when it comes to photo editing.

    Dude it's not sloppy if it's intentional. You're being very rude.

    You're completely looking at the image thinking "I would have done it this way," not, "Look what you've done."
    Understand that I know what I'm talking about because I live off of this line of work and am very good at what I do. This composition is correct. It isn't sloppy because it's not realistic. You don't know what you are talking about.

    Of course.

    Jokes aside, real nice work. Seems like a lot of fun. I would love to put on a dress, and get myself dirty, but since I'm a guy, thats a little unlikely.

    Also, mind if I ask what music was used in the video? I liked it.
