The National Pyrotechnic Festival Photographed by Thomas Prior

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 20, 2013
We are pretty sure, from these photos, that the National Pyrotechnic Festival in Tultepec, Mexico does not have any safety standards. The nine day festival features rides, food, music, and of course fireworks. New York-based photographer Thomas Prior travelled down to the festival to document the chaos, excitement, explosions, and fun?

Installations by Jacob Hashimoto

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 29, 2013
Jacob Hashimoto likes kites. We assume. Many of his installations involve thousands of white kite-like circular and hanging parts handmade from fabric glued to bamboo frames. Often suspended from the ceiling, the thousands of fans form a collective cloud throughout the room (one of the installations even features clouds painted on the fabric).

Paintings by Eric White

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 21, 2013
We last took a look at the paintings of New York-based artist Eric White back in 2011. We feel the time has come to take another look through his past and more recent work! Eric's work is realism tinged with the surreal and occasional eroticism. His palette and imagery seems to come straight from somewhere between a Hitchcock film, the Twilight Zone, and a 1980s living room. Many of his paintings are also titled and based off scenes from old movies...  

Photographs by Ivan Forde

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 21, 2013
This series of photographs by Ivan Forde represent the process that the reader's mind goes through when reading Milton's Paradise Lost. While attending SUNY Purchase College for literature, Ivan merged literature and photography to critique poetry. The result is this fascinating series of 8 photos titled Transformation. "The act of reading the poem invites readers to put themselves under the cold eyes of self-examination...The sight of our imperfections stimulates Transformation, resulting in a non-duelist view of all our parts - accepting the process between good and evil."
