Yesterday, while looking through the work of legendary South African photographer Sam Haskins we came across this shoot he did for Levis in the 1970s. At the time, Levis had a traveling exhibition of denim decorated by their customers and a competition along with it. Unfortunately (but not surprisingly) Levis executives got cold feet over the nudes and the photographs were never used commercially. (via)

Organized by artist Doug Aitken, the Station to Station project brought together the creative worlds of art, music, literature, film, and food during a series of performances, happenings, and interventions on and around a moving, kinetic light sculpture. As the train made its last stop here in the Bay Area, Juxtapoz attended the grand finale of festivities held at Oakland’s historic 16th Street Station.

We always love looking at old advertisements, it's always fascinating to see what audience they were aiming for and what was cool in that particular period. These Levi's ads from the 70s reflect some pretty interesting social changes in going on in as the 60s was ending and the strangeness of the 70s were beginning in America.

Last week, we attended the Levi's Vintage Clothing exhibition called "The Biker with Oil and Leather & The Bikeriders" at the flashship store in downtown San Francisco. Featuring 21 painted motorcycle jackets from 13 international artists--many of whom are tattoo artists as well--and documents and photographs from Danny Lyon's "The Bikeriders," the show pays homage to the American biker legacy. We've got info (and pictures!) after the jump.

From our brothers at Thrasher Magazine: Omar Salazar and videographer Benny Maglinao are two incredibly talented dudes. Levi's and Nike gave them the opportunity to take this video short into their own hands, and the result is something Hollywood production companies with million dollar budgets could only dream of making. Chalk another one up for the skaters.
