Photographer Captures Decades Of “Dangerous” Women

For a quarter of a century, art collector Peter J. Cohen has been collecting photos of women from the 1930s to 50s engaging in then-“dangerous” activities: drinking in public, boxing, playing football and shooting guns, among other things. After combing through 60,000 photos like this, Cohen chose 150 images to appear in his photography book, Snapshots of Dangerous Women. But to Cohen, the danger isn’t so much what the women are doing, but their attitude toward them–one that was likely frowned upon when these photos were taken. See more at Vintage Every Day.

For decades, car ownership was considered to be a sign that one had really “made it” in life. But as car ownership (at least in the United States) is on the decline, and some commentators have begun to posit that car culture is on its last limbs, what comes next for these automobiles? When we dispose of cars, they are usually impounded or recycled, but sometimes they’re left to crumble and return to the Earth. It’s not exactly environmentally friendly, but photographer Dieter Klein finds this process to be magical. Check out his other-worldly shots of car cemeteries in Cologne, Germany at Slate.
