  • Glad I'm not in Chicago (though New York ain't a whole lot better). Above is a photo by E. Jason Wambsgans for the Chicago Tribune of all the abandoned cars on Lake Shore Drive.

  • Since we're on the subject of the current "snowpocalypse" here's a real winner from Tim Jean at the Eagle Tribune. Honestly, how on earth does that happen to one's car? You can see video of that pileup and more snowpocalypse photos at Gizmodo.

  • Meet Yann Arthus-Bertrand:

    Yann Arthus-Bertrand has sold more than 3 million copies of his book of photography "Earth From Above." His latest Paris exhibition featured videos of 5,600 people photographed in 78 countries, and it attracted 150,000 visitors in just one month. And his $16 million movie from 2009, "Home," has been screened all over the world, including Bangladesh and the headquarters of the United Nations.


    But in the United States, Mr. Arthus-Bertrand is a perfect stranger.

    That's Yann below. Photo via.

  • Michael Musto has party photos from the bacchanal Calvin Klein threw for his 21 year old ex-porn star boyfriend.

  • JPG News favorite Bill Cunningham gets profiled in The Telegraph:

    His big break came in 1978, when he was struck by the sight of a beautiful fur coat being worn by a woman - although the woman interested him less than the coat. "I thought: 'Look at the cut of that shoulder. It's so beautiful,'" he later wrote in the Times. "And it was a plain coat, too. You'd look at it and think: 'Oh, are you crazy? It's nothing.' "


    It was only after he noticed the wearer was causing a stir, that he realised it was Greta Garbo.

    His first photo spread, which featured Garbo, is below. She's the one in the knit cap. You can click to enlarge
