Somewhere in an underworld, the Who riders battle the Lizard overlords, and David Jien is the grand puppeteer pulling the strings.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 11, 2015
We had never really thought of it before.... but having a BBQ underwater? That's right, when Bruce Mozert starting taking underwater photos in 1938, he was a pioneer, so don't mind some of these more goofball scenes he set up here. BBQ, gossip phone calls, guitar playing, hey, its all possible underwater in Bruce's world.

The Absurd and the Nude: Giuseppe Palmisano Gathers Stories

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 10, 2015
We ran across the work of Italian photographer Giuseppe Palmisano this morning, and love the absurdity and overall fun he seems to be having with his subjects. We did a little Google translate on his site to see what he was all about, and he notes "it is as if I have lived and I returned from a time to gather the stories of people living today." Okay, maybe Google translate needs to work on it a little bit?
