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.

Works by Melanie Bonajo

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 25, 2012
Photo montage and collage have the inherent power to juxtapose and arrange strange and foreign subjects creating new associations from unlikely pairings, a re-occuring motivation and end goal for artist's working in this medium. The result from this process is usually a variety of relationships that are telling of particular aspects of the given subjects.

"Quantum Blink” by Isabel M. Martínez

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 21, 2012
From Isabel M. Martinez, creator of the photography series, Quantum Blink: "The photographs in Quantum Blink are composed of two exposures taken instants apart. The striped pattern is the result of masks placed in-camera, this feature allows me to blend two images together and at the same time keep them from fully fusing onto one another."

Erwin Wurm "One Minute Sculptures" @ Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 19, 2012
Austrian artist Erwin Wurm, probably one of the most innovative contemporary artists we can think of that can seemlessly involve conceptual, sculptural, installation, and mixed media works all into one piece, is set to revisit and showcase his late 1990's project, One Minute Sculptures, at Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool, England.

Daniel González's Predator

Erotica // Monday, June 18, 2012
Ethereal forms come together with our natural environment in the sexy photographs of young, Colombian self-taught photographer Daniel Gonzalez. His images have a suggestive elegance, capturing an almost internalized essence of his models with the gestures of their bodies. With a body of work which is mostly analog, Daniel experiments frequently and is not afraid to play with double images, and traditional techniques.
