The Photographs of Viktoria Sorochinski http://www.juxtapoz.com/photography/the-photographs-of-viktoria-sorochinski http://www.juxtapoz.com/photography/the-photographs-of-viktoria-sorochinski The Photographs of Viktoria Sorochinski
Photographer Viktoria Sorochinski’s work gracefully combines documentary and fantasy. Her work examines relationships, particularly family dynamics. Much of her work also includes children and encompasses themes of morality, personal growth, and innocence. Sorochinski’s photographs are full of both intimacy and imagination. According to the artist: “My work process is very intuitive and my aim as an artist is to create the conditions that will allow these moments of revelation to occur in front of my camera.”

Scott Albrecht "Here and Now" @ Andenken Gallery, Amsterdam http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/scott-albrecht-here-and-now-andenken-gallery-amsterdam http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/scott-albrecht-here-and-now-andenken-gallery-amsterdam Scott Albrecht
Here and Now showcases Scott’s latest work which plays off of his graphic style of intricate typographic woodworks, colorful patterning and found object re-appropriation. In this collection the artist takes inspiration from recent events in his life that have resulted in larger shifts or change happening around him. The work is aimed to highlight these situations in varying degrees – from coping with the unforeseen, to recognizing the opportunities from what is available.

Oil Paintings by Ridley Howard http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/oil-paintings-by-ridley-howard http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/oil-paintings-by-ridley-howard Oil Paintings by Ridley Howard
Inspired in part by the visual tension of mid-20th century Italian cinematography, Ridley Howard balances optical design and two-dimensional arrangement with elusive narrative. Occasional graphic overtures—large spiraling swaths of pale green, off-kilter skyscrapers, monochromatic playground structures—imbue banal architectural spaces with intrigue, encouraging the viewer to identify the point where fact ends and fiction begins.

Graphite Drawings by Michael Schall http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/graphite-drawings-by-michael-schall http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/graphite-drawings-by-michael-schall Graphite Drawings by Michael Schall
Brooklyn-based artist Michael Shall does not draw from photographs but uses images to "gain an understanding of how certain things are structured." He then uses these s structural understandings to create his imagined worlds where those forms can do whatever he wants them to. "...these forms can do whatever I want them to, and it all looks believable, or almost believable."

Alberto del Pozo's Deities http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/alberto-del-pozos-deities http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/alberto-del-pozos-deities Alberto del Pozo's Deities
The Orichas Collection consists of the series of drawings by Cuban-born artist Alberto del Pozo of the deities of Afro-Cuban Santería. There are approximately 25 orichas in the Santería pantheon, 17 of which were depicted by del Pozo in this series. Santería refers to the Afro-Cuban practice of Lucumí or Regla de Ocha, a religious system originating with the African Yoruba people. The Orichas Collection includes the original pen, ink, and crayon illustrations.

Summer according to Anne Constance Frenoy http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/summer-according-to-anne-constance-frenoy http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/summer-according-to-anne-constance-frenoy Summer according to Anne Constance Frenoy
We were looking through the great New Erotic Photography book by Prestel this morning, and came across the works of Anne Constance Frenoy. Seeing that it is summer, and that Frenoy has a series of works of nudes in summer, and that she is based in Paris where we just came back from, and that she seems to capture a little 1970's nostalgia, we wanted to share them today.

Cliffside Living on the Aegean Sea http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/cliffside-living-on-the-aegean-sea http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/cliffside-living-on-the-aegean-sea Cliffside Living on the Aegean Sea
Or perhaps we should say "conceptual" cliffside living on the Aegean Sea by OPA. "Casa Brutale" by OPA (Open Platform for Architecture)is an insane concept of how to build a living space on a cliff, with amazing staircase ideas, swimming pool, glazed facade and other just fantastic details and minimal looks that would make the dude from Ex Machina jealous.

Maybe the Best Hand Painter You Will See http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/maybe-the-best-hand-painter-you-will-see http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/maybe-the-best-hand-painter-you-will-see Maybe the Best Hand Painter You Will See
Artist Russell Powell has an interesting process: he creates realistic portraits on his hand. I don't think I have ever heard of anything like that before. After he creates this insanely interesting process, he applies his palm to paper to create a "hand-stamping" effect. And as MyModernMet notes, "the stamping showcases Powell’s unique fingerprints and will always remind us from where his beautiful images originated." Sweet stuff.
