Keeping it Classy with Kesler Tran

Erotica // Monday, May 27, 2013
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.

Photographs by Gavin Watson

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 24, 2013
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.

Photographs by Ivan Forde

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 21, 2013
This series of photographs by Ivan Forde represent the process that the reader's mind goes through when reading Milton's Paradise Lost. While attending SUNY Purchase College for literature, Ivan merged literature and photography to critique poetry. The result is this fascinating series of 8 photos titled Transformation. "The act of reading the poem invites readers to put themselves under the cold eyes of self-examination...The sight of our imperfections stimulates Transformation, resulting in a non-duelist view of all our parts - accepting the process between good and evil."

Photography by Bernhard Handick

Erotica // Monday, May 20, 2013
Bernhard Handick is a young German artist and art-director of Shoutout-Magazine who is currently studying at The Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, Germany. With a German father and a mother from Sri-Lanka, Handick grew up in a multi-cultural environment, which heavily influenced the breadth of his artistic interests. He approaches his photography in a sculptural manner, looking at the three-dimensionality of his images in terms of their compositional resonance, visual musicality, and tactile appeal.

Photographs by Ren Hang

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 17, 2013
Beijing-based photographer Ren Hang's images are uncensored, erotic, dirty, raw, somewhat deranged... you get the point. His work is censored in China but he has a growling list of international shows. He's pretty badass and doesn't seem to have a limit, and the images we chose are even toned down a bit compared to some of the others on his website which you should check out. They cast light on an otherwise shadowy Chinese underground youth culture, where lust and indulgence run as rampant as anywhere else in the world
