Highlighting last year's catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the calendar shows scantily clad models wearing nothing but oil. It was designed to help recruit new volunteers to the Surfrider Foundation.…

Last summer, Sacha Goldberger decided he would take on a very interesting project. He assembled a team who helped him create an outdoor studio at Bois de Boulogne, a park located near Paris that's 2 1/2 times the size of New York's Central Park. He stopped joggers, asking them for a favor - would they sprint for him and then pose right after for his camera? Many obliged. Out of breath, these… Continue
