Bodybuilder's World: Photos by Kurt Stallaert

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Perhaps we have a weak stomach, but there is something about these photos that makes our belly turn a bit. First, Belgian photographer Kurt Stallaert's series, Bodybuilder's World, started innocent enough; a family that looked a little too buff for their own good. Then the surreal, doctored photos of children who hit the gym with a steroid rage started to make us feel... intrigued and disturbed all at once. But, we love it, too.

The Work of Russ Mills

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 10, 2012
We have shown you the work of UK illustrator Russ Mills on the site before, but the artist just posted some new works on his site, our favorites to date. We love how the artist combines photography, illustration, and fine art. Mills say of his work: its a "collision of real and digital media it is primarily illustration based with a firm foundation in drawing, I focus mainly on the human form particularly the face, interweaving elements from the animal kingdom often reflecting the absurdity of human nature."

Film Stills from Le Monde du Silence

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 10, 2012
If you are a fan of Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic, you probably should watch Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Louis Malle's Le Monde du Silence. Here we offer you some stills from the film (as provided by i like this blog). It's soaked in beautiful, nautical imagery and Cousteau-ian investigations of marine life. Feeling inspired to watch it yet? Good. Go do it.

Food as Everyday Objects by Dan Cretu

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 06, 2012
Perhaps because it is Friday during a holiday week, and we are slightly hungry, that these photographs of food as everyday objects have us hungry and happy. Dan Cretu has turned a piece of salami, and cucumber, an orange, and a view other fruits and vegetables into things that you would use at a picnic; cameras, boomboxes, and bicycles.

Alex Prager "Touch of Evil: Rooney Mara"

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 06, 2012
This is a bit of older news, but its really good so who cares? Last year, we showed you that photographer/filmmaker Alex Prager shot leading Hollywood stars for the NY Times Magazine, stars who represented the year that was in 2011. That meant Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst, and, of course, Rooney Mara. The photographs were, of course, stunning, but the short conceptual films that Prager shot with each actor/actress are quite brilliant as well....

Christoph SIllem's "A World Around Disney"

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 06, 2012
Wandering through Christoph Sillem's photographic series A World Around Disney is like wandering through a Disney cartoon. However, SIllem's photographs are not representing any kind of stage set. Sillem has discovered the community of Val d'Europe. This surreal housing complex is the one that surrounds Disneyland, Paris, a large scale neighborhood erected to accommodate the employees of the nearby destination.

Recreating Famous Photographs via Star Wars

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 05, 2012
Perhaps because this author spent most of his Fourth of July holiday in a county that is shared with Lucas' Skywalker Ranch, but when we saw these fantastic famous photographs recreated with Star Wars characters, we felt a bit if kinship. Of course, I would expect to see two Stormtroopers kiss after the end of a great galactic war.  

Steamy Snapshots by Nick Farrell

Erotica // Thursday, July 05, 2012
'Known for his no holds barred ability to capture the essence of his subjects, Nick Farrell's vision is often high-gloss, beautiful and always provocative... Regardless the medium, Farrell continually exposes life's dramas showing sexual tension in a youthful and liberated way that documents rather then exploits his subjects.'

The Photography of Elizaveta Porodina

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
This isn't the first time we have showcased the fine art and fashion photography of Munich's Elizaveta Porodina; it was when we came across this photo, King Volcano, that reminded us how much we are enthralled by the young photographer's work.

Faces 5 by Ashkan Honarvar

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 25, 2012
If you have a light stomach, maybe this isn't for you? Utrecht photographer Ashkan Honarvar (Utrecht is a really nice town, by the way), has created this series called "Faces 5", where he has created a mutilated face and replaced the blood and injury with frosting, candy sprinkles, and what appears to be candy canes.
