The Bird's-Eye View World of Katrine Korfmann

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 18, 2013
Katrin Korfmann's photographs impressively stand at over 5ft high and are taken from a bird's-eye view from a tremendous height, with the camera often elevated by a crane or operated using a helicam. The shooting can take anywhere from 10 minutes to several hours and she will spend two or three months editing and blending together the 500-2000 shots that make up the final image!

Leica M Camera for (RED) by Apple's Jonathan Ive x Marc Newson

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 11, 2013
Like 3 heavyweights in one project. Apple's Senior VP of Design Jonathan Ive and legendary designer Marc Newson teamed up to create this special Leica digital viewfinder camera for (RED), joining more than "40 other rare and diverse items in the (RED)Sotheby’s auction on November 23rd 2013." (via DesignBoom). From the looks of it, the camera is quite a stunning digital camera, and we wonder how much it will be auctioned for? The cause is great, with all proceeds going to raise money for the global fund to fight aids, tuberculosis and malaria.

Shrink-wrapped People by 'Photographer Hal'

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 11, 2013
In Tokyo-based photographer Hal's "Flesh Love" series, couples are blanketed in a plastic sheet to create a vacuum-sealed pack of love. As the result of probably seeing too many Law & Order episodes where victims are either discovered in plastic bags or murdered using one, these photographs are making us feel a bit uncomfortable...or maybe we just have a deep fear of suffocating.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
This morning we take a look at Hungarian photographer Bence Bakonyi's "Dignity" series, a reflection on the artists' view of himself. "I cannot escape from the fact that I struggle with myself. It has always been a difficult question for me: do I know him? Who is he anyway" It's so alluring, sometimes as if the will of the body would want to swallow me, leaving my thoughts behind...

Photographs by Lee Materazzi

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
The sculptural quality in the make-up of Lee Materazzi's photographs can likely be attributed to her degree in sculptures. Based on everyday life, the photographs transcend the documentation quality of life to elevated concepts about living. "The photographs take the mundane tasks and chores of our existence and express the way in which they affect our consciousness."
