In the Magazine: Guy Bourdin's Son Sets the Record Straight

Fashion // Thursday, March 12, 2015
Guy Bourdin was a painter and legendary fashion photographer whose style has been pervasively appropriated in pop culture. Mentored by Man Ray, he avoided the limelight, focusing strictly on the creation of arresting pictures. Despite staging surreal mise en scènes for high-end brands like Vogue, fashion was the last thing on his mind. On the occasion of a current retrospective of Bourdin’s work, his son, Samuel, revealed the truth about his father, an artist who is legitimately known as one of the twentieth century’s best fashion photographers.

Sieben on Life: Stop and Smell the Sharpies

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 05, 2015
Working as a commercial illustrator for the past decade plus, I've designed hundreds of T-shirts for numerous companies, bands and individuals. But if I had to pick my very favorite shirt that I've ever designed, it would be the one you're looking at above these words. I drew this at my kitchen table when I was 12 years old.

Some Verbal Expressions Concerning the Painting

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 05, 2015
The painting considers this question: Where was the universe made? Fireworks: they are objects like ourselves. They have their existence in the shapes and colors they contain. But they are going to change when lit, as we will change at some moment in our lives, when we change from life to whatever comes next...

Paul Wackers: A Studio with Lots of Plants, Naturally

Studio Time // Wednesday, March 04, 2015
This is my studio in what is now called East Williamsburg, where I have been for about two and a half years. I really like the studio, and before this spot, I was in a space shared with about five other people. It was always hard to tell that so many people were in there since we were so crammed in, and I had no windows in and around my 10’ x 10’ nook...

As a young girl in Turkey, Eda Kaban immersed herself in French children’s fantasies ranging from Tintin and Asterix to The Little Prince. And so, despite years devoted to other pursuits, it’s not surprising she’s returned to her first love: the magical, whimsical visuals that frame stories for kids...

In the Magazine: Tomoo Gokita

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 25, 2015
I’m not gonna lie and say I was prepared for the overwhelming visual barrage I experienced stopping by Mary Boone Gallery on a frigid New York winter day early last year to see the work of Tomoo Gokita. For the past week leading up to my gallery visit, unfamiliar images of electrifyingly monochromatic and faceless characters infiltrated my daily social media feed. I recall a bewildering sensation, comparable to being left out of a secret—how was I not familiar with this artist’s work?  

"Ponte City" by Mikhael Subotzky & Patrick Waterhouse

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Juxtapoz was lucky enough to visit the Ponte City construction site in Johannesburg, South Africa with Magnum photographer Mikhael Subotzky back in 2008 as he began what would become this book collection—scratch that, this is so much more than a book: it’s an immersive archival box set of found documents, photography, essays, truly a visual history of what publishing house Steidl calls both a “ dreamland and dystopia.”
