Callum Wilson + Candy Magazine
Callum Wilson. What a prospect. This dude looks non-chalant wherever I see him. It must be his signature look. His blue steel. You may have never heard of Candy before. Wait, that’s because this is issue one! Kind of an interesting concept: CANDY is the first fashion magazine ever completely dedicated to celebrating transvestism, transexuality, cross dressing and androgyny, in all its...
I know I don’t regularly do this but in this case it seems fitting. This is probably the best documentary I have ever seen, and not just for entertainment purposes. It really shows how quick we are to place our trust in governments and institutions to make our decisions, and how we are abused by greed. It’s really sickening, and although this may not be the number one problem in the...
Jonathan Waiter + Yulia
Patrick T. Kuhre
Stumbled upon the work of Patrick T. Kuhre from Salt Lake City the other day. Just a nineteen year old who takes simple, yet gorgeous photos. Looks like this kid travels a lot too. I wish that were I. That’s proper grammar, by the way. I’m bringing it back. Or I wouldn’t mind being that cat observing Athens from a shade-covered perch in the shade. I wonder what he’s...
Show Me + Mariano Vivanco
No, I didn’t forget. Yes, it’s true. See Like Me’s Rare Issue is fast approaching. In fact, I’m finished. It just needs to be proofread for spelling etc. before I drop that fat bomb on your poor little eyes, which won’t be ready to take in such a sight, might I remark. It’s seriously a work of wonder and I’m so thankful there are so many willing people out...
Please Don't Go
This is one of the best short films I’ve ever seen. If it doesn’t affect you like it did me, then you must be made of stone. I think a lot of messages can be interpreted from this, but it’s really up to you to decide what to take away from it. And if you like this video, please have a look at this post.
Anja Rubik + Viva!
Anja Rubik has grown on me like a moomoo on an anorexic. She seems pretty versatile, and this editorial for Viva! magazine only shows a small portion of what she can do. Whenever I think Anja Rubik, I think versatile. For serious. Look here, here, here, and here. I don’t know what it is about them Poles, but she’s definitely got some sort of marketable factor. Plus she’s a bit...

Jonathan Waiter + Ieva
Jonathan Waiter hasn’t gone anywhere, and with this new test of model Ieva @ Marilyn, I have to say I’ve fallen back in love with his work. All the crazy expressions and pulling off of clothing turns my crank. It’s so provocative. Did you check out my interview with Jonathan Waiter? Let’s dance naked.
Brooke Candy + Bloody Guts
This is exactly how I want to document my life. Brooke Candy style. So imperfect, but so raw. With blood and guts and McDonald’s. I guess this would be the definition of raw. The fact that it’s so American is really cool. America has to win back the world somehow. Brooke Candy is making a start. Just her and her friends — smoking, getting tatties, going out, bleeding, and just doing,...
Daul Kim + Russh
What a Daul. Too bad she left us so soon. The videos below show her sense of humour and these photos may just be one of her last editorials. These are for November’s Russh Magazine. As many of you now know, Daul Kim was recently found dead in her Paris apartment. The cause of death has been determined to be suicide, and oddly enough, her last blog post was titled, “Say Hi to...
Nicole Maria Winkler
Nicole Maria Winkler may not be bad luck, but beware, she brings a crazy black cat to set from time to time. This London based photographer has a gorgeous portfolio. Plus she liked the movie Annie Hall, which we share in common. Model is Justine @ Elite.
Bell Soto + Insomnia
Daul Kim Found Dead
Beautiful, amazing, multi-talented Korean model Daul Kim was found dead this morning. Rumour has it that she committed suicide. She will be greatly missed. “This morning, Korean super model Daul Kim was mysteriously found dead in her apartment in Paris reported her agents at Next. 20-year-old model Daul Kim death can be a possible suicide claims The Cut. “She was a top model and a great...
I Tolu so. For a long while it was the Russians. Then it switched to the Swedes. Could we be back in Romania soon? These scouts just keep robbing every country of it’s good-looking people. Which is why I tell you to watch for the Romanians, especially Silviu Tolu. Maybe it’s this whole vampire craze we’re experiencing. That’s where they came from, right?
Erez Tom High + Artificial Nature
Artificial Nature = Natural High. Erez Tom High, that is. This Israelite just keeps impressing, especially with this innovative shoot for BMM ZONE magazine. Once one person gets word, these things spread like a craigslist post trading sex for World of Warcraft coins so I’m trying to help the guy out. I know you read this Calvin Klein. These aren’t so dissimilar from the Calvin Klein...
Behind the Scenes + Annie Leibovitz
White Shirt + Jens Herrndorff
Dear Jens Herrndorff, you’re really impressive. A bit Daniel Sannwald-esque, maybe. This editorial takes a white shirt and makes it everything but plain. Kudos to Tatiana Calasans, who manipulated the plain white tee in every way possible. Hair & make-up by Melek Acar. Model is Sebastien Schmitt @ Cream. Makes me really wanna rip-off my shirt à la Hulk. I doubt I could make it look this...
Edita Vilkeviciute + Solve Sundsbo
Sølve Sundsbo snaps the ever gorgeous Edita Vilkeviciute in a stunning editorial. Just look at those clothes! I can’t say I object. I can even recall when I was introduced to Edita last summer in an editorial by Josh Olins. Ever since I’ve been obsessed. And for good reason. These photos for who-knows-what are thrilling and a bit of a change from the regular “here’s what I...
Steeve Beckouet / About A Boy
Does anybody else like the movie About a Boy? I think it’s totally underrated. Single Parents Alone Together! Classic. Steeve Beckouet, (whom I profiled earlier) shot another editorial called About a Boy for Ones2Watch. I think this guy has finally got the ball rolling and hopefully we’ll be bumping into more of him. Look at the whole thing here. Like I mentioned previously, most of my...
I’m still trying to understand why this photographer has failed to receive more attention. His work is basically phenomenal and based on the photos I posted below I would say he has a pretty versatile style. Brian Keith has even shot for Harper’s Bazaar, Surface, Oyster, GQ & Trace magazines to give a brief rundown. He’s one of those few photographers who actually was born in...
My Brother, My Father & I + Jarbas Agnelli
Paper One Year Preview
Okay, so no lie, I’m literally a week or so away from finally treating your eyes to what I’ve been working on for these past three months. Even if this doesn’t work out at all I’ve learned quite a bit from the experience. Sometimes you gotta say “what the fuck”, right? That was an allusion to Risky Business by the way. The following photos are for promotional...
The Prince of Wales & the Duchess of Cornwall arrived in Vancouver a couple of days ago to “bless” our Olympic village, trance around grabbing seeds from our seed bank and look at ponds under the shelter of royal umbrellas. I thought that would be a nice segway into Prince Harry look-alike Alex Loomans. Except he’s Canadian (yeah!). Alex Loomans was born in Burlington,...
Erez Tom High
Discovered the work of Erez Tom High via Jolijn Snijders. It’s outrageous how good this guy is. Twenty-four years old and from Tel Aviv, I haven’t yet met or heard of an Israelite in the fashion industry, not saying there aren’t any, it’s just not something you see frequently. His website is currently under construction (know how that feels) but I found a short interview...
Reed + Rader / Fashion Images
I’ve decided this week is going to be cool fashion photo week in lieu of the millions of photos I’ve uploaded in the last 12 months… I’ve found a better way to upload photos but I’m really hoping this bug sorts itself out. Server issues. It’s all greek to me. I’m still anticipating my super cool Paper One Year project but I can safely say it’s going to...
Dearly Beloved, ironically foreseen by me as mentioned in the last post, the internet (or a decent subsection) has forever disappeared and taken all of my website’s content with it. This couldn’t come at a more opportune time. With that being said, we are not going to panic. I am patiently waiting for my content to either reappear, or this means an entirely new direction for See Like...
Paper One Year + Contributors
It has been exactly one year since the invention of See Like Me online. I’ve been dedicating my time for 365 days (give or take a few). And for what? I’ve decided I need something to show for all my hard work. Therefore, I’ve decided to undertake a bit of a project. I need something physical that I can hold on to once the internet blows up (and who knows when that could be?!)....
Tom Ford + A Single Man
Tom Ford is a man to be admired. His campaigns are provocative. His design is immaculate. And his soon to be released feature film should be something to see. A Single Man is about a gay man coping with the loss of his dead gay partner. Well Tom Ford is gay, so this could potentially be going in a very good direction. He is probably the king of the sexual advertisement. Just another example of...
Behati Prinsloo + Nuovo Barroco
I believed they named her Behati (Be-HOT-ty) for a reason. Not to harp on the creativity of her poses, but they do seem a little repetitive, don’t they? Obviously, poses come and go like garments, but these just look a bit lazy. I feel sleepy just looking at these pictures. Which reminds me I have to set my clock back an hour so I get an extra hour of sleep. Keep watching for the list of...
