String Installations by Sebastien Preschoux

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 31, 2012
Not only are these geometric string installations well-constructed by French artist Sebastien Preschoux, but the way they are lit and photographed makes them seem even more profound. The thread installations transform otherwise dark locations into spaces that appear ready to jump through for optimal time travel.

Bearded Ladies by Arvida Bystrom (NSFW)

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 31, 2012
The work of young photographer (like 20 years old-young) Arvida Bystrom consistently catches my eye. Whether its the dark erotic GIF's, or series of sexy bearded nudes- (hey, there's something for everyone) the appeal of her work is unavoidable. She's young and talented, and uses topics confronting gender, love, age and beauty stereotypes in her work. She has a couple editorials for Vice under her belt and with work like this, she will continue to stop me dead in my tracks.
