Christopher Morris's 1980s NYC Subway Photos

Photography // Friday, January 24, 2014
Award winning photojournalist Christopher Morris, well-known for his documentation of the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Somalia, began his career documenting the NYC subway for six months as an intern for the photo agency Black Star. TIME, who Morris is a contract photographer for, recently released some rare photos from this period of his career. "Morris' work provides a window on a long-gone New York, a metropolis that once pulsed with a very different energy - a frenetic, dangerous tone - than one feels in most of the city's neighborhoods today. But even back then, as Morris' pictures attest, Gotham remained an always fascinating and, at times, disarmingly beautiful place."

Drawings by Jessica Stewart

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 24, 2014
'The works under When You Escape are artist Jessica Stewart’s musings on dreams and those who wander lost in their imagined worlds. Dreams are vast, beautiful, consuming, unstable places built from secrets and fears, desires and damages. They are completely of our own individual constructions, but they are not safe.'

LA Art Show: Tom Dash

Erotica // Thursday, January 23, 2014
Last weekend we took a trip to the LA Art Show to browse the array of galleries, both local and international, and to see what the world had to offer this time. After a near mind melting trip to both Art Basel in Miami and Israel to experience their creative scene, I'd thought that my level of visual inbut had been exhausted- but not quite. The most exciting erotic installation I found at the LA Art Show was by the talents of Tom Dash, with Michael Borgni Fine Art- a rich a provocative collection of acrylic collages on canvas from 2013.

The Surreal Works of Jorge Santos

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 23, 2014
Looking through our archives this week, we remembered how much we liked the cover story from June 2006 with Portuguese painter, Jorge Santos. We love the way his work is described on his website: "They are not pre-assembled sets such as that of the Realist painter, and any 'photo realist' instances are purely the result of the artist’s skill to portray a likeness."

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 23, 2014
In our current February 2014 issue of our print edition, Juxtapoz traveled to Seattle to visit the new headquarters and studio of Ebbets Field Flannels. A little background: Ebbets has spent the past 25 plus years authentically reproduced some of the great sports apparel that long ceased to exist in America. In recent years, through headwear, jerseys, jackets, and a new found wave of collaboration with brands like J. Crew and PF Flyers, Ebbets Field Flannels is the definition of Made in USA craftsmanship and community.
