Story Behind My Son Making it to the Front Page of Reddit

Though it may be hard to believe, it's been almost five years since we started My Modern Met. (We launched in May 2008.) Though I'm not a photographer by trade, you've trusted in me and my team to deliver some of the best art and photography out there today. For the most part, we've kept our personal lives private but if you do a quick search, you could find us on any number of social networks.

These Golden Books Are Not For Children

We've all read a Golden Book when we were kids. They're a line of illustrated children's books.

These Golden Books here though, are not exactly suitable for children.

Chivalry is Undead Series by Kira Shaimanova (8 pics)

Sweet Talk

"While chivalry is dead in the present day, it is very much alive for the “undead”. Zombie gentlemen demonstrate chivalrous acts and behaviors in contemporary settings using unconventional methods." - Kira S.

When Shadows Come Alive (15 pics)

Shadow Dance

Though there's a plethora of amazing shadow photography out there, my favorite ones are where the shadows tell a story. They're the ones where the line is blurred between art and photography where you're not quite sure if the photo has been doctored up. These are the photos where our imaginations run wild, where we believe, for a brief moment, that the shadows come…

Finding the Story in Faceless Photos (20 pics)

As it has been said many times over, a picture can tell a thousand words. Just by the body language or background of these photos, you can imagine a sweet or sorrowful story. Arms crossed or looking into the vast space, these people are remembering a tragic memory or a long lost love. The beauty of it all, of course, is that it is up to you to decide what that story…

Inspirational Story: How JibJab Turned Passion Into Profit

A few days ago, I read this article about how the brothers behind the online political parodies, JibJab, are turning their passion into profit. Recently they switched their strategy to focus on e-cards, asking their audience to pay $12 per year for an annual subscription.

Movie on the Radar - Capitalism: A Love Story

Love him or hate him, all Michael Moore really wants to do is expose the truth. Sure, his films can be a little (ok, very) one-sided but that doesn't mean we can't appreciate them for what they are.

The reviews are already starting to pour in on his newest film, Capitalism: A Love Story.

Variety says, "By returning to his roots,… Continue
