2. Damien Blottière

Damien Blottière studied Fashion at the parisian Art School Duperre. Always interested in images and photography, he worked first as fashion editor for Mixte, Purple Fashion and Dazed & Confused until he decided to devote himself entirely to photography. 

He plays with images and creates a universe for the models or the objects by building "hand made" set or collages looking like animals, flowers or surrealistic sculptures which are an open window to the childhood and his own world of magic fantasy.

He collaborates closely with Bernhard Willheim and also worked for different brands such as Pierre Hardy, Paule Ka, Stella McCartney, Carven and international magazines.

10. MTV - Sex Is No Accident

You should always use a condom, unless you've got a really good excuse not to—like you were roller-skating down the street, tripped on the curb, fell into the back of a woman who was bent over packing her car, and accidentally had intercourse with her! That's the message of some amusing new pro-condom cartoons from Grey in Germany for MTV in Switzerland. See three full ads here. Such scenarios, of course, are unlikely—thus, the tagline: "Sex is not an accident. Always use a condom." The campaign is pretty airtight, logically speaking. However, in researching the topic, it becomes clear that many people have asked, in public Internet forums, whether a person can, in fact, have sex accidentally. Usually these questions come from a) young couples who have pledged to be celibate before marriage; and b) male friends who regret that their wrestling in the bathroom went a little too far. In both cases, condoms wouldn't be the worst idea. Via Ads of the World.
