If there was ever a photo series that could capture the strange occurrences that take place under the cover of night, it would be the Benoit Paille ‘UnderNight’ portfolio.

Using chairs as coat hangers is not a new concept, but I just love how cleverly these half IKEA ‘Bertil’ chair hangers came about. Posted on IKEAhacker, seattastic slings add an interior design element to small space storage solutions.

The designer was inspired to make these half IKEA ‘Bertil’ chair hangers after seeing a similar conception from ‘Laphoeff.’ Using two second-hand dining chairs, the resourceful and design-minded decorator cut the seat edges off and mounted the functional furnishings on his wall so that they now fulfill another use.Severed Seat StorageSevered Seat Storage8.

Fashion campaigns rarely reveal the work put into the styling and shooting, but these ‘Eram Shoes’ feature the perils of production in the place of the model.

Succeeding to showcase the footwear, these ‘Eram Shoes’ ads publicize the promiscuity and personal problems of the photographer, director, the model and even the client.Promiscuous Promotional PrintsPromiscuous Promotional Prints

4. Bubble-Head Photography

Although the Romain Laurent ‘Something Real’ photo series claims to be “real,” I think we can safely assume that it was brought about through the magic of impeccable post production. A creative soul if I ever saw one, this French photographer is quickly becoming one of my top favorites.Bubble-Head PhotographyBubble-Head Photography3. Schizophrenic Editorials

Pulp Magazine Issue 2 is a bold beginning for the publication, particularly due to this Tara Gill spread. This shoot shows the many faces of the fabulous model, from pouty, haute avant-garde to wacky tribal couture.
