Ten years ago, my perception of the potential of a retail shopping experience was forever skewed when I strolled into the newly opened Mollusk Surf Shop, located in the Outer Sunset neighborhood of San Francisco. Well-curated products, art adorning the walls, navigable layout, basically the whole package was thoughtfully executed. However, the undeniable jewel in the space was the stylish treehouse occupying an entire corner of the store. Unlike your stereotypical treehouse, this particular montage was fabricated with attitude and stylish funk.

In The U.S. the invasive vine Kudzu (originally from Japan) is spreading at 150, 00 acres annually and kills trees and shrubs by heavy shading. Their presence is most prominent in the Southeastern region of the U.S., where they are highly visible from freeways and just about anywhere. Stockholm-based photographer, Helen Schmitz has been documenting this aggressive vine in her beautiful back and white photographs in a project simply called Kudzu Project.

“O” by Ward Robert (NSFW) http://www.juxtapoz.com/photography/o-by-ward-robert-nsfw http://www.juxtapoz.com/photography/o-by-ward-robert-nsfw “O” by Ward Robert (NSFW)
In the series “O,” photographer Ward Roberts creates nude portraits along with the gradients of sunsets. Similarly to much of the artist’s work, specifically his documentation of courts, this series explores pastel-hues. The images appear washed out and evoke feelings of bleakness and serenity.
