Best of 2014: "Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich" by Sandro Miller

Photography // Thursday, December 25, 2014
“John is the most brilliant, prolific person I know. His genius is unparalleled. I can suggest a mood or an idea and within moments, he literally morphs into the character right in front of my eyes. He is so trusting of my work and our process… I’m truly blessed to have him as my friend and collaborator.” Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich honors photographs that have impacted Sandro. Pieces include Irving Penn’s photograph of Truman Capote in a corner; Bert Stern’s photographs of Marilyn Monroe...

Best of 2014: 1972 Rothschild Illuminati Ball

Photography // Thursday, December 25, 2014
In December of 1972, Marie-Hélène de Rothschild threw a “Surrealist Ball”at the Château de Ferrières, one of the large mansions owned by her family. The invitations were written backwards, forcing the guests to use the assistance of a mirror to read them. The attire required was “black tie, long dresses and surrealists heads.” Upon arrival, the facade of the chateau was lit in red with the effect of making it appear to be on fire. 

Self-Portraits and Nature by Lina Scheynius

Photography // Wednesday, December 24, 2014
We have been following the career of Lina Scheynius for a few years, and there were a few updates recently that made us want to share with the Juxtapoz audience. We know we post a lot of nudes and self-portraits on the site, but few do it with the detail, connection to nature, and use of light quite like Lina. This work is only going to get better and better.

Best of 2014: These Fruits and Veggies All Faker Than Potato Head

Music // Wednesday, December 24, 2014
Butter Ya'Self is a new track featuring a banana (Nana Splits) and bread roll (ButterKrust) letting us know how much tastier they are. "We on a roll. Bitch, I am a roll. Getting hot and heavy in the oven like a casserole. Making bread. Shit, I'm made of bread. And these fruits and veggies all faker than Potato Head." You need to watch it.

Best of 2014: Lucy Hilmer's 40 Years of Birthday Suits

Photography // Wednesday, December 24, 2014
Every year on her birthday photographer Lucy Hilmer takes a self-portrait defiantly wearing only socks, boots, and a pair of white underpants. She documented forty years of her life in this way, starting in 1974 as a twenty-nine year old photography student...

Best of 2014: Jenny Morgan, September Cover Artist

Vault // Wednesday, December 24, 2014
Adding something fresh and necessary to the genre of portraiture may seem impossible, but in that realm, Jenny Morgan is crushing it. Don't label her paintings figurative or photoreal. Her extraordinary skills for rendering the human figure are beside the point. Layers of the unconscious are revealed in the reductive abstraction of her portraits.
