Photos of a 1946 Nuclear Test

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 14, 2013
  Some new photos have surfaced of the United States nuclear weapons Operation Crossroads, conducted in 1946 off the coast of Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands. Two bombs were detonated underwater that resulted in a 900ft vertical column of water. These images were taken 3.5 miles away from the island's beach, still uninhabitable due to the radiation.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 13, 2013
Photographer Martin Rietze's trip to the Sakurajima Volcano in Japan happened to coincide with a lightning show (caused by the volcano) that lasted only 20 seconds. In that time, Rietze was able to capture these amazing, hellish shots of smoke, fire, lave bombs, and...lightning.  

Kata's Provocative Polaroids

Erotica // Friday, March 08, 2013
It was dark time for me the day Polaroid film went off the market. I always felt this classic form of instant film produced such beautiful results, in a format that yielded so much satisfaction. Its warming to know that there are artists like Kata out there that are still appreciating and using it as their medium of choice.  

The Street Photography of Nils Jorgensen

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 07, 2013
We are really enjoying the street photography of London-based Nils Jorgensen this morning. Nils is a member of 'In-Public,' a group of photographers working in the streets who have a unique ability to see the unusual in everyday and to capture the moment. Like many of his peers, he was heavily influenced by the work of the legendary Paul Strand, Diane Arbus, Andre Kertesz, and Elliott Erwitt.  

Dietmar Busse’s "Fauna and Flora"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 07, 2013
German photographer Dietmar Busse's series Fauna and Flora are unique combination of photography and painting. Busse moved to New York in the 90's, beginning his career as a fashion photographer before becoming disillusioned with the constraints of working for others. For Busse, making art 'is like being on the road, except that the [artistic] journey is an inward one.'  

The light in the tunnel...

Graffiti // Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Cindy Sherman Masked Photoshoot by Patrick Demarchelier

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 05, 2013
  Garage Magazine and French fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier had a great idea. Using masks of Cindy Sherman's face created by thatsmyface.com, Demarchelier had his models wear the super-realistic facemasks for his photo-shoot.   

Sasha Larina From Every Angle

Erotica // Monday, March 04, 2013
Superbly seductive from both sides of the camera, Sasha Larina has it all. As a 25 year old model and photographer based out of Moscow, Russia, she brings her provocative gaze to all aspects of her work. This series is a selection of both images she has shot, and of her modeling as well. I just couldn't help myself...
