Got a Girl Crush On: Giving zero f*cks
We tend to rag on rude subway riders, but the truth is that underneath every stylish, well-heeled New York woman is this lady, who frankly sees no reason to wait until she gets home to start enjoying some shoeless quality time with a cold one.
There’s a lot to admire about this woman—her “don’t give a fuck” attitude and the impressive pile-up of filth blanketing her feet. The lanyard around her neck and dead-eyed gaze indicate that she probably just got off of work, and who doesn’t need a tall can of Becks after doing that for 8 or 9 or possibly 10 hours per day, amirite?
Don’t let haters get you down, girl. You’re a beer-guzzling, dirty-footed inspiration to all of us.
Got a Girl Crush on photographer Haley Morris-Cafiero project "Wait Watchers" depicting herself receiving strange looks in public
“I now reverse the gaze and record their reactions to me while I perform mundane tasks in public spaces. I seek out spaces that are visually interesting and geographically diverse. I try to place myself in compositions that contain feminine icons or advertisements. Otherwise, I position myself and the camera in a pool of people…and wait.
The images capture the gazer in a microsecond moment where they, for unknowable reasons, have a look on their face that questions my presence. Whether they are questioning my position in front of the lens or questioning my body size, the gazer appears to be visually troubled that I am in front of them.”
Got a Girl Crush On: Cait Oppermann & Yael Malka's photo projects
“My girlfriend and I went on a 2+ month long backpacking trip across Morocco, Turkey and several European countries. We are both artists and are making a book of photographs from the photos we collected on our trip. We created a few series throughout the trip and one of them is called “twenty one beds”, in which we took self portraits in every bed, couch or floor we slept on throughout the trip.” - Yaek Malka
They’ll also be launching their book Sea Blues at Molasses Books in Brooklyn tonight Friday, May 17th!

Got a Girl Crush On: Bessie Stringfield the Motorcycle Queen of Miami
“Known as the Motorcycle Queen of Miami, Bessie Stringfield started riding when she was 16. She was the first African-American woman to travel cross-country solo, and she did it at age 19 in 1929, riding a 1928 Indian Scout. Bessie traveled through all of the lower 48 states during the ’30s and ’40s at a time when the country was rife with prejudice and hatred. She later rode in Europe, Brazil, and Haiti and during World War II she served as one of the few motorcycle dispatch riders for the United States military.”
