found image


This picture is by photographer Dana Lauren Goldstein, whose works clearly owe a debt of gratitude to Ryan McGinley, but are addictive to look at in the same manner as Vice Magazine’s (where she interned) Dos & Don’ts.

I especially like this image because of the combination of sweetness and gross-outness.

I agree. Interesting image in a "holy crap what is that guy doing with that rat" kind of way.

I like it because it is full of contradictions:

Obviously it was posed/staged for shock effect, yet I like how gentle and tame the rat looks, almost more compassionate than the furry-necked fellow whose tongue he is touching...plus, there is some trust in that pic...I'm pretty sure even tame rats bite....
