Sam Haskins' Levis Shoot

Erotica // Thursday, February 05, 2015
Yesterday, while looking through the work of legendary South African photographer Sam Haskins we came across this shoot he did for Levis in the 1970s. At the time, Levis had a traveling exhibition of denim decorated by their customers and a competition along with it. Unfortunately (but not surprisingly) Levis executives got cold feet over the nudes and the photographs were never used commercially. (via)

Joram Roukes @ Masters Projects, Brooklyn, NYC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 04, 2015
We have long been fans of Dutch painter, Joram Roukes, in our offices, and have featured him both in the magazine and on our site. He currently has a new body of work up at Masters Projects in Brooklyn, which will have a reception on February 5 and on view through March 14, 2015. The gallery says of Roukes works that, "Roukes’ collage-like paintings of anthropomorphic-hipsteresque-hybrids set within dystopian landscapes visually invoke cultural tensions through realist and expressionistic painting styles."

Photographing Nudes with Sam Haskins

Erotica // Wednesday, February 04, 2015
South African photographer Sam Haskins, who passed away in 2009, left behind a defining legacy as a key player in mainstream 20th century photography and the sexual liberation of the 1960s. Some of his most notable and influential work was seen in a 1962 book called Five Girls, a study in black and white of the nude female form, and a 1965 book Cowboy Kate which was an adventures photo essay of a model, her hat, and the Wild West. Both captured "the era's sexual freedom and independence," launching his career as a commercial and fashion photographer.
