Bearded Ladies by Arvida Bystrom (NSFW)

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 31, 2012
The work of young photographer (like 20 years old-young) Arvida Bystrom consistently catches my eye. Whether its the dark erotic GIF's, or series of sexy bearded nudes- (hey, there's something for everyone) the appeal of her work is unavoidable. She's young and talented, and uses topics confronting gender, love, age and beauty stereotypes in her work. She has a couple editorials for Vice under her belt and with work like this, she will continue to stop me dead in my tracks.

Diary of a Smutographer

Erotica // Wednesday, May 30, 2012
Elvis Di Fazio’s fine art background has served him well, with his artistic sensibilities freeing him from the technical boundaries that prevent so many young photographers from forging into new territory. Bright and ballsy, Di Fazio’s photos flash with kitsch erotica  and his style has quickly unfurled, dancing from precise and emotive portraiture with a classic bent to something distinctly modern in its appeal. 'I want to put the dick back into ridiculous...

Manuel Birnbacher's Civil War Portraits

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 30, 2012
In David Lynch's famed and well-loved television series Twin Peaks, Benjamin Horne re-enacts and reverses the outcome of the Civil War as a means of coping with a mental breakdown; by reversing the outcome of the war in the role of General Robert E. Lee, Horne is reverting the crisis that has troubled his own life. We're not sure if Manuel Birnbacher's reason for remixing and reworking these Civil War-era portraits has any similar connection to a personal crisis . . .

The Photography of Lydia Roberts

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 29, 2012
The photography and self-portraits Lydia Roberts creates are magically haunting and emanate the same kind of ghastly beauty that resonates from dated found photographs. Her eerily dark portraiture and holographic staged shots have deep set mysticism and a ghastly, vintage feel, adding to the brilliance of her portfolio as a whole. Love...

Anatomy Revealed by Koen Hauser

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 24, 2012
These are fantastic digital manipulations by Dutch artist, Koen Hauser. As part of the series, Modische Atlas der Anatomie, Hauser takes a female subject, photographs her body in certain frozen poses, and then digitally adds/removes her skin to reveal organs and internal body structures.

Animal Portaits over Photo Portraits by Charlotte Caron

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 23, 2012
A very simple idea, with a nice effect, involving the humanization of animals, and animalizing humans, by French artist, Charlotte Caron. The artist says of the series, "This series of paintings, photographs, are trying to respond to a form of duality... ultimately creating an osmosis between the two mediums, between the animal and the portrait."

The Backs of Birds by Audrey Corregan

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 21, 2012
We never thought looking at the back of a bird's head would seem some regal and peaceful, but Audrey Corregan's series, Obviously, has put us in a quite a serene mood. As Corregan says, "“They are big, almost our alter egos. These imposing creatures turn their backs on us in superb indifference, captivated by a sight that we cannot see."

Tits and Phones: Richard Kern

Erotica // Thursday, May 17, 2012
'Richard Kern is a photographer and a portraitist.  For more than two decades Kern has sought to unravel and illuminate the complex and often darker sides of human nature. Kern makes the psychological space between the sitter, photographer and audience his subject. With his dry, matter of fact approach, he underlines the absurdity of truth and objectivity in photography while playing with our reliance upon taxonomies around sexual representation.'
