The recent opening of Copenhagen gourmet Hot Dog restaurant, Foderbrættet sends our saliva tripping. We arrange with the friendly owner Michael that we’ll swing by and stuff our faces, kind of like our first ever food review. Why not? We like food and this sounds perfect – they have cocktails.
Hot dog enthusiast/photographer Steffen Wendt and long serving Bitchslap photographer Abdellah took a night at Foderbrætter to see what pork all the fuss was about. Read more →

With the sun out today it’s easy for thoughts to drift past April and into July when the harbour is warm and we’re drinking beer outside instead of inside.
Photographer Esben Zøllner Olsen has been photographing wakeboarding at Copenhagen Cable Park (CCP) for the last couple of years and has captured some amazing results including a short series of fresh LED long exposures.
Take a look for yourself.

Starting as an experiment with friends to explore how faces change under different light settings, and as you get to know them, Tue Blichfeldt invited some of his contacts to his Copenhagen apartment where he shot this interesting series with filtered flashes.
“The idea was to explore the way faces change as you get to know them. The first time you see someone, they don’t look the same as after you really get to know them. And with time, some faces get harder to recall. At least I think it’s like that sometimes. A blurry mess.” Read more →
Pretty much everything Poler Stuff make is rad. Just the other day I found myself putting their infamous ‘Napsack’ in my cart and heading to the checkout, only to find the shipping was twice the cost of the product. Cancelled. Bummer. Still want one. Photographer Kealan Shilling was fortunate enough to shoot a ‘Farewell to Summer’ series with Poler, and we’ve got the full set of imagery here to share. Good stuff, and definitely captures the mood and vibe of the brand, at least from where I’m standing – and I’m actually sitting down, sounded by invoiced and a camera with no charger, a couple of hats and hundreds of children’s toys. True story. Read more →

I can’t even touch my toes, so yoga pretty much freaks me out from the get go. But it’s obvious why this photo series by Peter Hegre of his stunning wife (who just happens to be naked) in a number of positions I couldn’t dream of putting my body in caught my eye. Once I got over the initial tits! tits! tits! and started to have a better look at the imagery it struck me Read more →
Tired of foodgrams? This series may whet your appetite. Since 2002 French food photographers Pierre Javelle and Akiko Ida have been creating this incredible series of miniature worlds depicting people going about their everyday life entitled Minimiam. Using 1/87 figures normally seen on model railroad scenes, the couple – who happen to be married – manage to bring a range of humorous ideas into play which is what makes these images so unique for me.

Canadian photographer Francois Brunelle is on a mission to shoot 200 couples of nearly identical strangers. In his series I’m Not A Look Alike he captures absolute strangers who happen to closely resemble each other.
Francois has spent the last 12 years dedicated to this project, whose goal is a 200-couples book publication. He is approximately halfway. Read more →

Photographer Alastair Wiper, featured in Bitchslap 19, has added Copenhagen’s city-center theme park Tivoli Gardens to his impressive list of graphically striking sites. Tivoli is fondly seen as one of the most special theme parks in the world, not something easily captured – but in this rare series of a Tivol-minus-crowds, we get a glimpse of the magic that lies beyond the regular bells and whistles of the ordinarily highly energetic park.

This trip was an idea that came about whilst talking to my friends from Sweden. We wanted to try and find unseen spots off the beaten track and decided to head to the Balkans in search of this.

Who doesn’t love ridiculous laws? Like how it is illegal to serve apple pie in Wisconsin without cheese. Or that in Arizona you can not have more than two dildos in the house. How about the one about keeping ice-cream in your back pocket in Alabama. Nope, sorry bro, against the law. American photographer Olivia Locher has created a great photography series called “I fought the law” breaking down boundaries and challenging these laws (or mostly just having a sense of humour about some outdated nonsense laws).
