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.

Patience is a virtue. According to Beautiful/Decay, it took "Baptiste Debombourg 1200 chairs, 300 meters of steel tubes and 11 months to set up the installation in the middle of plaza du Bouffay in Nantes, France."

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?

We’ve had our eye on Larassa Kabel for a while now, and were first intrigued by her elegant, Photoreal pencil drawings of free-falling horses. She covers a range of heavy topics, from death to sexuality, and her investigations result in some of the most stunningly-rendered work we’ve seen in a while, including both her pencil drawings and oil paintings.
