Omnia Magdy began her portrait project out of disappointment with the decline of Egyptian cinema from its once celebrated golden era. She created a series of what has come to be called “sleeveface” portraits – mixing images of musicians from old LP (long playing) record covers with pictures of ordinary people. She chose to use images of stars from the history of Egyptian cinema, combining their well-known faces with the body of a model. The vintage photos she used are well-known and she chose to arrange each portrait to “match” the original in location, clothing, and props in order to create a provocative illusion of the past in the present and vice versa.

Am I the only one disturbed by America “helping” Iraq? Like, as soon as it got out of there, it went back in. Let’s not forget that America is directly and indirectly supporting ISIS and the like. Let’s not forget that America, Israel and Saudi Arabia are in this together, along with the support of Qatar, Turkey and others. This is NOT a good thing.
Honest Brand Slogans By Clif Dickens
Branding is all about good company image and great customer feedback. However, even the biggest brands have some qualities, which do not exactly enhance their brand’s value. That’s why Clif Dickens thought of a unique way how to make fun of global brands, replacing their original slogans with something a little bit more honest.
The brilliancy of his work is in its simplicity: by putting things that people already know about these brands next to their logos, they seem even more true. Nonetheless, the brands remain at the top and we get a good laugh at them, a win-win situation for everyone!
