Retro Glamour Photos and Headshots Styled in Ridiculous ’70s and ’80s Fashions

From one of the makers of the Original Video Pizza — featuring an hour-long montage of saucy, spinning pie with sizzling sound effects — comes the Glamour & Headshots series. Portland photographer Robbie Augspurger, who we first discovered on Ignant, takes a page from the Sears, yearbook, and Glamour Shots portraits of yore, styled in the best-worst of the 1970s and ‘80s. Random firewood? Check. Creepy double-exposure portraits with pets? Check. Lightsaber and brown knitwear? Check, check. “This photo series started when I purchased an old light kit. Its power settings put limits on what I could do in a studio portraiture context, having only ‘on’ and ‘off’ as my main controls,” writes Augspurger on the project website. Vintage Instagram filters are fun and all, but we can’t get enough of Augspurger’s hilarious and frequently convincing photos. See more in our gallery.
