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."

Bernhard Handick is a young German artist and art-director of Shoutout-Magazine who is currently studying at The Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, Germany. With a German father and a mother from Sri-Lanka, Handick grew up in a multi-cultural environment, which heavily influenced the breadth of his artistic interests.

Photographs by Ren Hang

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 17, 2013
Beijing-based photographer Ren Hang's images are uncensored, erotic, dirty, raw, somewhat deranged... you get the point. His work is censored in China but he has a growling list of international shows. He's pretty badass and doesn't seem to have a limit, and the images we chose are even toned down a bit compared to some of the others on his website which you should check out. They cast light on an otherwise shadowy Chinese underground youth culture, where lust and indulgence run as rampant as anywhere else in the world

Underwater Photographs by Hengki Koentjoro

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 17, 2013
Indonesian photographer Hengki Koentjoro has been hooked on taking photos since he received a pocket camera for his birthday when he was a kid. He went on to study at the Brooks Institute of Photography and heavily influenced by Ansel Adams, Hengki went on to document the oceans surrounding Indonesia’s 13,000 islands in a dark, mysterious black and white. He says, "With the Zone System by Ansel Adams, you are in the practice of seeing things around you in monochrome or learning to see in black and white."

The Effects of Oil: The Photography of Peter Hoffman

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 15, 2013
As part of the Chicago Project, and using film that was shot at the Fox River in Illinois, photographer Peter Hoffman created an interesting process in developing his work. "Fox River Derivatives is a series that questions our relationship with our natural resources. Using the theme "Water and Oil", with consideration to the large BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, the images are part of a larger experiment that utilizes water and fossil fuels in the actual image-making process, letting these substances become an important variable in the visual representation..."
