600 Mount Fuji Sunrises by Yu Yamauchi

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 31, 2013
Yu Yamauchi spent five months a year, for four years living in a hut near the summit of Mt. Fuji. Everyday for those five months he would get up at the crack of dawn to photograph the sunrise from the same location. The result is a stunning series of photographs, aptly titled Dawn, of the Earth waking up. What is most incredible about the series is how different one photo looks from the next. "This space, 'above the clouds,' exists far from the ground where we live our daily lives. It is also a space between the earth and the universe." We may have to watch the sunrise this weekend...

Photographs by Lieko Shiga

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 28, 2013
Japanese photographer Lieko Shiga's Canary series combines personal stories from local myths with his own personal memories, feelings and experiences. His process involves floating the printed image in the darkroom just as it is appearing and before it settles, generating not easily recognizable, but incredibly fantastical and meaningful photographs. As FOAM magazine puts it, Shiga's "belief in the transcendent power of the photograph verges on the religious."

Kesler Tran is back with another sublime photoshoot, this time with leggy and uninhibited model Jennifer Mc Manis. Based out of Los Angeles and New York, Tran is a professional fashion photographer who primarily shoots fashion, editorial, and beauty pieces, but we especially love it when he cuts loose and shows some skin, bringing out the sexual magnetism of his models and never failing to keep it classy.

By the time Gavin Watson was 14, he was fully immersed as a skinhead in the world of 2 Tone and documenting his friends and brother with his camera. The book, Skins, based on these early pictures has been widely popular and considered by many as the 'most important photographic record of this unique subculture.' Another series of photos, Neville, follows his brother through his teens into adulthood. This morning we look through some of these pictures and their raw and honest youthful energy.
