Sea Diamonds

Erotica // Thursday, May 10, 2012
What could possibly be more exhilarating than covering your nude body in sparkling silver glitter and running up and down the beach with your best friend, splashing in the waves while the sun reflects off millions of tiny sparkles covering your glistening, gorgeous figures? Nothing. There is nothing that could possibly define a better afternoon, except however, if you were the photographer. Great set by Mandy-Lyn Antoniou of Kristy and Siouxsie, sirens in a sea of diamonds from Iona Beach, Richmond.

Sumo by Paolo Patrizi

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 10, 2012
This series starts with a great description: It’s the only sport where being obese is encouraged. That is probably pretty close to the case, but Japan-based photographer Paolo Patrizi's series is so much more than just documenting Sumo wrestling. It uncovers a bit of the myth, and puts a face to the behind-the-scenes life of a sumo wrestler, and their odd place in popular culture.

Boogie: In and Around Katowice, Poland

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 09, 2012
Former Brookyln-based photographer, Boogie, was in Katowice, Poland recently for the Katowice Street Art Festival, and while there, he did what a good photographer does; he took stunning black and white portraits and photos around the city. This one in particular, in a cafe, looks like something shot in 1920's Paris.

Ofra Lapid's Broken Houses

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 08, 2012
Process in art has always been a discussion, whether or not its an interesting discussion is a different story. Ofra Lapid has a fascinating process behind her series Broken Houses. The series focuses on structures that have been neglected by their human counterparts and have fallen victim to weather and decay. See more after the jump...

Opening: Ryan McGinley "Animals" & "Grids" @ Team Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 07, 2012
Ryan McGinley opened two simultaneous exhibitions at Team Gallery's two locations in SOHO, NYC this past week, Animals and Grids (Atlas Sound playing the roof for the openings... good touch). We stopped by to see both shows this weekend, and while Grids has a incredibly clean presentation, Animals was one of our favorite, most memorable shows of the entire weekend of Frieze activities.

Photographs by Brittney Meyer

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 07, 2012
Brittney Meyer photographs food, and from what we've seen it's not exactly in the mode of Sunset Magazine. Instead, she captures food in odd moments of movement, frozen, collaged, misplaced, the fruit and sweets seem to be animated, personified, and almost giddy.

We Eat Our Young

Erotica // Friday, April 27, 2012
Its pretty incredible how many outlets and online sources there are for creatives these days, allowing their work to get spread to the masses and shared with minimal effort in no time. I frequently come across amazing work with little or no information or credit given that I can't help but share, like these raw, painted erotic photographs- which are just overflowing with a tangled 80's appeal and desire...
