The Sutro Baths has been a San Franciscan destination since the 19th Century, so Juxtapoz is familiar with how arresting decaying pools can really be. When we came across Gigi Cifali's series "Absence of Water" we were excited to see that we're not the only ones who find beauty in old pools. "Absence of Water" was Cifali's first solo show at the Ritrovo di Shazar which opened 16th May 2011, in Benevento, Italy.

Yesterday, we showed you a preview of Stanley Donwood's new show, Far Away is Close at Hand in Images of Elsewhere, opening that London's The Outsiders gallery on September 20, 2013. When we were looking at the new work, we started seeing a theme... a theme that has entered Donwood's work with Radiohead and the King Of Limbs LP: trees! Lots of lonely, ghostly, reaching, bare trees. So we asked Mr Donwood... what's up with the trees?

Lazarides Rathbone welcomes Brooklyn based artist Oliver Jeffers for his first London exhibition, Nothing To See Here. This September Jeffers will present a new series of works, which both question and observe modern life and its many conundrums. Referencing familiar 18th and 19th century European landscape and still-life painting, the artist investigates, via themes of censorship and ignorance, the notion that knowledge is power.
