For their forthcoming album “Free Your Mind,” the Australian electronic band, Cut Copy, enlisted Asger Carlsen to work some of his mutation magic for the bands press photos. The Danish-born, New York-based photographer/sculptor, altered the four band members faces to become one interconnected face and in the other image two of the members can be seen with double-sided faces.

We like the way V1 Gallery wrote their press release, so we are just going to go with it: Hester is not easy to explain. It has to be viewed and experienced. Hester is not easily understood. Sculptures of amorphous human figures photographed in non descript spaces. A cross between a David Lynch dream, a Henry Moore sculpture and a Francis Bacon painting, mixed by Dr. Jekyll in Frankenstein’s lab. Surreal cubistic tableaus in black and white.

From now until the end of the year, Juxtapoz will be showcasing some of our favorite features from our print edition, from the January—December 2013. We had many highlights this year, from Matthew Barney, Ralph Steadman, ADRock, David Choe in Afghanistan, Tom Waits, David Copperfield, and Alex Prager, and today we look at our January 2013 feature with photographer, surrealist, and alternate-universe creator in Asger Carlsen.

We are big fans of Asger Carlsen who we interviewed in the January 2013 issue of the magazine and Roger Ballen, who you are probably familiar with if you are fans of Die Antwoord. He's directed videos for them and took a series of photographs of the South African group as well. The idea of the two working together seems like such a natural fit that we were not even surprised to see the collaboration. But that doesn't mean we were any less excited to see it!

We love Asger Carlsen, and the universal "What the f@!&" moment everyone has when they first see an Asger Carlsen creation. Interviewed in our January 2013 issue, NYC-based Carlsen has taken his increasingly abstract Hester series to Berlin for an exhibition at Dittrich & Schlechtriem (formerly Pool Gallery). As everything with these works, things are not as they seem, or everything they seem. You decide.

January 2013 sees Juxtapoz announcing two special features: First, we announce our redesigned layout, a refresh to kickstart the new 2013 year. Second, we asked Spanish muralist and fine artist, ARYZ, to create cover artwork for us to launch the new year with. And here it is...
Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 05, 2012
We welcome the calendar year that is 2012 with the February 2012 issue of Juxtapoz, n133 on the record books. On the cover is Australian fine artist and painter, Jeremy Geddes, an artist that we feel needs no introduction from his brilliant work capturing both astronauts and everyday people in wonderful states of floatation in urban spaces. Geddes' friend, Ashley Wood (featured in November 2011), handles the interview.

Asger Carlsen remains one of the most fascinating of contemporary photographers, creating a parallel, yet oddly familiar, universe where the world is slightly off. Currently, Asger is showing at Primary Photographic Gallery in NYC, in an exhibition curated by Tim Barber.
