Rodeo Drive, 1984 is a series of 41 images of shoppers on Beverly Hills’ infamous shopping highway. The subjects appear caught unaware, glancing up as they walk, or daydreaming as they wait to be served in its commercial landscape of shops and restaurants. Anthony Hernandez poses as a dispassionate observer, recording the big hair, wide shoulders and cinched waists of the 1980’s in sunlit photographs.

One of Juxtapoz' favorite artists, Suzannah Sinclair, just opened a new series of works at Samsøñ in Boston, Mass, "Nature Nudes and Interiors."
