I struggle with the work of Markus Hofmann, especially as it pertains to his work with BMW. Maybe it is the awkward intersection where high-fashion meets avant garde photography meets German motorcycles that just leaves me wondering what I am looking at with each photo. His work is impressive, don’t get me wrong…I just don’t “get” it…and today is no different.

I dunno, maybe the whole Twilight & True Blood thing is just now taking off in Germany, and this is the product of the world getting just a little bit flatter. Maybe there is a commentary about society lurking underneath the glossy exterior of these fanged photos. Or, maybe…just maybe, vampires are just waaay cooler than I think they are (werewolves baby, werewolves).

We’re getting a weird Children of the Corn meets Blair With Project vibe from this advertisement from Kawasaki that promotes the 2011 Kawasaki Z1000 street bike. Presumably debuting at Intermot, and just in time for Halloween, it’s actually a pretty well-shot and engaging clip, but damn is it creepy (we prefer slasher flicks). Pardon us while we go bathe in vinegar, and cry in the corner of the A&R office. Source: Kawasaki
