Perhaps because it is Friday during a holiday week, and we are slightly hungry, that these photographs of food as everyday objects have us hungry and happy.

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 06, 2012
This is a bit of older news, but its really good so who cares? Last year, we showed you that photographer/filmmaker Alex Prager shot leading Hollywood stars for the NY Times Magazine, stars who represented the year that was in 2011. That meant Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst, and, of course, Rooney Mara. The photographs were, of course, stunning, but the short conceptual films that Prager shot with each actor/actress are quite brilliant as well....

Erotica // Friday, July 06, 2012
For the past 70 years, comic books have often been considered one of the lower forms of popular art, and their erotic counterpart?? Pulp covers.
