A look inside Larry Clark's "Wacko Maria"

Photography // Tuesday, July 22, 2014
The text included on the first pages of Larry Clark’s newest book Wacko Maria is written by the prolific photographer himself and in short conveys his distaste for fashion photography, “hollyfuckingwood” producers and distributors, and his relationship to the kids from South Central, Los Angeles (his cast for his movie Wassup Rockers) who appear throughout the book. 

Creamlapse

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Ice cream is tasty, sweet, decadent, and delightful, but unfortunately it melts. Mateo Cabeza captures this temporal and gravitational thaw with an understanding of the emotional heartbreak that happens if you wait too long to eat it.

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 21, 2014
For the last 20 years, Juxtapoz Art and Culture Magazine has stood for the outsiders, to create a place and dialogue for artists who stood outside of the museum programming of the time but were creating substantial and amazing work that needed its own historical context.
