Best of 2014: Christopher Morris's 1980s NYC Subway Photos

Photography // Thursday, December 11, 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."

Ewa Doroszenko: Simulated Tortures

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 10, 2014
The installation comprises photographs of a woman’s body and several common office tools – a stapler, a pair of scissors, a punch, etc. The form of the photographs has been disturbed with physical stimuli, like piercing the paper, burning or sewing it with a thread. It is not a real body, but its photographic representation that undergoes tortures in the project. However, the stimuli that act on the (photographed) body are authentic and painful, indeed. Piercing, injuring and cutting the photographs serve as a simulation for real “pain test” - a deliberate act of inflicting physical suffering.

Juxtapoz Presents: Neil Young "Special Deluxe"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 10, 2014
Sometimes “special” is the only word that will do, and in the case of Neil Young’s “Special Deluxe” by Penguin Books , let’s agree that it is, starting with the artist’s observation that “being obsessive is not such a bad thing for creativity.” The book is an enchanting portrayal of the roots of Young’s appreciation for the ability to travel country roads and landscapes of the imagination.
