In photography from one of my favorite blogs, Le Zèbre bleu.

Jenny Saville & Glen Luchford: Self-portraiture. Makes perfect sense that the artists use such thick frames for more than 2D canvases/photographs. Take that, Egon Schiele.

William Eugene Smith

Francesco Giusti: Portraiture. From Marie-Hélène Sirois: "The Société des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Élégantes (Society of Entertainers and Elegant People, SAPE), in Congo-Brazzaville, dates back to the 1920s and 1930s when privileged Congolese returned stylishly dressed from visits to Paris. Members of the SAPE, known as Sapeurs, see themselves as artists and often have nicknames and distinguishing gestures or poses. Some have celebrity status."
