Dennis Hopper: Drugstore Camera

Photography // Friday, May 08, 2015
From Artbook, where Dennis Hopper's new "Drugstore Camera" book is being sold: "Drugstore Camera feels like a stumbled-upon treasure, a disposable camera you forgot about and only just remembered to develop. Yet in this case the photographer is Dennis Hopper and the photographs, remarkably, are never before published. Shot in Taos, New Mexico, where Hopper was based following the production of Easy Rider in the late 60s, the series was taken with disposable cameras and developed in drugstore photo labs..."

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 08, 2015
Using the software Arnold, Lee Griggs created facial blockheads and bubbleheads for his new project Deformations. Taking normal faces and digitally transforming them into some of the most bizarre and interestingly disturbed faces we’ve seen in a long while, Griggs never knows what he’ll get.

ONO'U TAHITI GRAFFITI FESTIVAL 2015 - Part 1

Graffiti // Thursday, May 07, 2015
How we made it to the Tahitian paradise for a second time is still a mystery. Of all the events we attend through the year, none are quite like the Ono’u Tahiti Graffiti Festival. We say this based on how tropical and remote the location is, and also because the event focuses almost entirely on graffiti which is rare.

Music // Thursday, May 07, 2015
Last Friday night, our Juxtapoz editor was one of the few lucky people to get into the very special (and free) Blur concert at the Music Hall of Williamsburg as part of Converse Rubber Tracks. The show, which was brilliant, fun, and loose, featured the band playing almost the entirety of their new LP, The Magic Whip, with a few classics in the encore. Today, we have an exclusive of the new tracks, "Lonesome Street," "New World Towers," "Ghost Ship," and the encore of "Song 2" for you to watch today. Enjoy! (And today, Thursday, May 7, we have added a special interview, the new track "Go Out," and a classic from Parklife, "Trouble in the Messenger Centre.")
