Raised in the California’s farmland and culturally vapid Central Valley, Dustin Aksland made his escape after high school to pursue a life of the opposite, rich with adventure, travel and lots of photography. After attending the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Aksland moved to New York and has since been been filling his relentless appetite for shooting a wide range of subjects.

Nature As Art by Andreco http://www.juxtapoz.com/street-art/nature-as-art-by-andreco http://www.juxtapoz.com/street-art/nature-as-art-by-andreco Nature As Art by Andreco
From Italian artist, Andreco, who we featured in Juxtapoz' print edition in the past: "In the climate change era the environment needs new symbols to withstand. 
We are in the century of the environmental crisis and my artwork is affected by it. 
My research is focused on the relation between humans and nature and between the built environment and the natural landscape."

Nikolay Bakharev's Amateurs and Lovers http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/nikolay-bakharev-s-amateurs-and-lovers http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/nikolay-bakharev-s-amateurs-and-lovers Nikolay Bakharev's Amateurs and Lovers
Photographer Nikolay Bakharev was an orphan (his parents died when he was four) who worked as a mechanic until he developed his profession as a self-trained photographer. He grew up in East Russia near Mongolia, and still lives in Siberia. His work was featured in the "Ostalgia" exhibition in the summer of 2011 at the New Museum in New York which gathered art from Eastern European countries with a curious nostalgia for a painful past. As a critic in the Economist said: "All of this art is political, by the simple act of its creation."

Everything is Fucked: The Work of Paul Yore http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/everything-is-fucked-the-work-of-paul-yore http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/everything-is-fucked-the-work-of-paul-yore Everything is Fucked: The Work of Paul Yore
Australian artist Paul Yore is familiar with controversy. His work over the years has been met with intense discussions about censorship and artistic freedom. His art has been seized by police and he has had to defend himself against criminal charges. His work has been described as a "dystopian, fastidiously constructed world drenched in psychedelic color and engaging provactively with issues of gay politics, gender, environmental destructions and capitalist critique."

Jim Phillips: The Screaming Hand Is Still Making Noise http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/jim-phillips-the-screaming-hand-is-still-making-noise http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/jim-phillips-the-screaming-hand-is-still-making-noise Jim Phillips: The Screaming Hand Is Still Making Noise
I’m often asked where I got the idea for the Screaming Hand… like I had a store where I could get images. Sometimes an idea just pops in my mind, and I’ve trained myself to be receptive. Screaming Hand dates back to high school where I liked to spend my time drawing epic surfing and skateboard pictures and give them to my friends...
