Enjoy some more summer bliss with stunning Sophie in this gorgeous black and white series by Fran Dominguez for C-Heads. Dominguez is a Spanish-born fashion photographer based in Aarhaus, Denmark, and her steady lens captures model Sophie bathed in the most heavenly light by the glimmering, sunlit sea. If only all beach vacations could be so glamorous.
Fran Dominguez's photoseries entitled "Days of Being Young" captures just that--ephemeral, motion-filled portraits of women who are nothing if not young and beautiful. The low-contrast black-and-white gives the sensation of nostalgia. The photos are arranged in diptychs or triptychs, capturing the model's movement moment-to-moment, amplifying the sensation of fleeting time. The series is young and sexy, laced with the ache of nostalgia.

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.
