“Icy Blondes” is a series by Norwegian photographer Ole Marius Joergensen… yes, photographer. Did you think these were paintings? Me too. In this series, his bizarre, narrative, painterly photographs capture what appear to be some very intense cinematic moments inspired by Hitchcock’s femme fatales:

“The well-know US film critic Roger Ebert observed that Alfred Hitchcock’s leading ladies, ‘reflected the same qualities over and over again. They were blonde. They were icy and remote. They were imprisoned in costumes that subtly combined fashion and fetishism. They mesmerized the men, who often had physical or psychological handicaps.”

Well, beware the icy blonde, I guess. Happy Monday.
