The Photography of Robert Doisneau

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 15, 2013
We thought we'd take a look through the work of one of our favorite photographers this morning, Robert Doisneau. Together with Henri Cartier-Bresson, Doisneau was a pioneer of photojournalism and one of France's best known photographers. Known for his modest, playful, ironic images, and juxtapositions (ha!), he has left behind an almost overwhelmingly extensive and broad legacy of images that continue to inspire us every time we revisit them.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Congo-born, France-based artist Olivier de Sagazan integrates painting, photography, sculpture and performance into a very unique hybrid practice! His existential performance series, "Transfiguration," involves the artist building layers of clay and paint onto his face and body and then shedding them to reveal "an animalistic human who is seeking to break away from the physical world."

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 15, 2013
French artist Carine Brancowitz immortalizes her daily life on paper, creating a series of works 'combining the purity and passion of adolescent anxiety, an obsessive attention to detail, the uncluttered elegance of lines,' and the severity of the compositions.

Update: Intricate Illustrations by Nicolas Delort

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 10, 2013
Nicolas Delort is a freelance illustrator based in Paris, France. His monochrome pen and ink drawings show a taste for the fantastical, as evidenced by his numerous Harry Potter-themed pieces. The line quality in Delort's  work is astounding, and we're more than a little reminded of another French great by the name of Gustave Doré.

Photographs by Adeline Mai

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 04, 2013
Photographs of people taken underwater naturally have an otherworldy feel to them and it can be easy to twist and maneuver the body into unique and visually interesting positions. The photographs in Adeline Mai's series, "Weighlessness" series are distinctively different than most, utilizing warm colors rather than the usual blues and greens that we are used to seeing water as.

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 20, 2013
Capitalizing on the expansive possibilities of digital techniques, French photographer Thomas Devaux's series of work "Attrition," is a "double articulation between what is borrowed and that which is a reinterpretation on one hand and an ax in art history on the other hand...The portrait becomes a division of a face created by itself and see-through."

Design Works from Stéphane Massa-Bidal

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
One of the best bio descriptions we have read in a while: "Artist, hair icon, art director, cook, graphic designer, frenchie, Illustrator, dad, genius brain owner, tech digest, curator, co-owner The Contrepétographes." And then graphic designer Stéphane Massa-Bidal throws in this great quote from Larry Niven to complete the feeling: "The Dinosaurs Became extinct Because They Did not Have a space program." Well, then, that makes sense.
