What Artists Do When They Are Not Being Artists

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 14, 2015
"Tucked away among the letters, diaries, and other ephemera in the Smithsonian's archives lies a trove of rarely seen snapshots of some of the twentieth century's most celebrated artists. Unlike the familiar official portraits and genius-at-work shots, these humble snaps capture creative giants with their guard down, in the moment, living life." Sounds romnatic, doesn't it? Well, this is the summary that Princeton Architectural Press has put together for their new book, "Artists Unframed," featuring Warhol, Picasso, Hockney and others relaxing and doing things that artists do when they aren't painting.

The Body and Soul of Choi Xooang

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 14, 2015
South Korean artist Choi Xooang shows us the realism of the human emotion frozen in an instant. The flow of life through polymer clay figures breathes the difficult reality we face today if Man does not confront the outer world.

The Photography of the legendary Leroy Grannis

Photography // Sunday, September 13, 2015
Dubbed as the “The godfather of surf photography” by The New York Times, Leroy Grannis made a profound impact on surfing culture with his classic photographs from the ‘60s and ‘70s.
