Newspaper Reporting Once Again Ranks Below Pest Control as “Worst Job”: Links You Need to See

By

Today is many things. It’s both #TaxDay and the day in history that the Titanic sank after hitting an iceberg in the North Atlantic. It’s the day when CareerCast’s new rankings are making the rounds, and “newspaper reporter” yet again edges out everyone else for first place on the Worst Jobs Ever list.

Forty years after his death, Pablo Picasso’s influence still looms large — especially in his home country, Spain. So it’s no wonder that Madrid-based fashion photographer Eugenio Recuenco feels like he owes the painter a little tribute. Taking some of Picasso’s best-known portraits of women, Recuenco dressed his models in stylized clothing and added angular lines and fake eyeballs to their faces to match the paintings as closely as possible.
