Denver-based photographer and art director Suzanne Heintz was fed up with people asking her when she was going to get married. From her mother’s direct plea, “Just pick somebody!” to others’ woeful sighs of pity, Heintz lived half her life wondering where she had gone wrong. After years of struggling to politely answer the question, she decided to procure the house, husband, and offspring everyone so desperately felt was the pathway to happiness. Purchasing a pair of second-hand mannequins, Heintz set about playing house to achieve the American Dream. From a Parisian holiday to Christmas cards of wildly escalating happiness, Life Once Removed is a sharp, witty critique on the archaic expectations of domestic bliss and fulfillment.
What the city is missing:Thierry Cohen photographs cityscapes and then photographs deserts at night, combing the two to show us what our cities would look like with the lights off. The stars are not enhanced, they are actual photos from relative latitudes that would expose the same starry sky view if it weren’t for light pollution. Click on each photo to see which city it is.
What’s better than long exposure weddings pics? Absolutely nothing. Photography duo Robert Paetz and Felicia Wong set up the special shoot in Joshua Tree, California.

Glowing wedding photos by Samm Blake. Blake traveled to Tokyo to document Takako and Steve’s traditional Shinto-style wedding (followed by a western style reception). I love the attention to details.
Thanks to Shoko for sharing!
