This striking and beautiful series was shot by Polish photographer Madame Peripetie. Dream Sequence explores the beauty of unconventional fashion photography as well as takes a dive into the strange realm of surrealism.

The series consist of 69 images, all of which were composed and refined in-camera; prosthetics, body painting, wigs, flowers, and 3D make-up techniques were all used in order to enhance and distort the bodies of the models.

You can see more images from Dream Sequence on Madame Peripetie’s website, as well as more information about the book and where to purchase it, here. (Via Beautiful/Decay)

Mark Barone is a painter who knows the pain of losing a dear pet. When his partner Marina began researching to adopt a new dog she came across loads of information on how many dogs die each day at kill shelters across America. 5,500 shelter dogs are killed every day in the United States. When Marina shared this information with Barone he didn’t want to see it,  “Two days later, he said, ‘I have a really clear vision of what I want to do to solve the problem.'” Barone set out to give those animals a face by committing to paint 5,500 portraits of shelter dogs, using photos of the animals from shelter websites from around the country.

Over two years into the project now, Barone has more than 3,500 portraits complete. Most of the dogs are painted on 12″x12″ wood panels. To find out more about Mark Barone’s ultimate goal for these paintings please visit his website “An Act of Dog”.
