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.'

Photography by Mandy-Lyn: I LUV AMERICA!!

Erotica // Wednesday, May 16, 2012
'I take portraits, with a special focus on beautiful girls, with 35mm film cameras and Kodak 400 film. Mostly I feel like my photos are about looking for that feeling of freedom, experiencing mortality, and also seeking to realize beauty in a way that's spectacular - in that it's common place, but it's vivid - like the way you would experience a memory from your youth....' Photographer Mandy-Lyn.

The Death of Youth: Jess

Erotica // Monday, May 14, 2012
As part of The Death of Youth project, the gorgeously seductive model, Jess, displays a naturally beautiful and innocently provocative aesthetic. 'I photographed 100 women to further demonstrate the fantasy of this lifestyle. The majority of these women do not fit into the typical characterization of "fashion model" that dominates much of today's photography. This provided a more raw and realistic vision of this fantasy...

Illuminated Landscapes by Marian Drew

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 14, 2012
We felt like getting into a summer mood this morning, and we came across these beautiful light interventions, illuminated landscapes by Marian Drew. The photographs appear as quiet hauntings in the wilderness, shot in the far reaches of Australia.

Super Heroes: If They Were Actually in Conflict

Juxtapoz // Sunday, May 13, 2012
We all know that comic book heroes and movie villains are created as metaphors for some sort of historical event or as some sort representation of a important cultural moment in time. Photographer Aran Harahap has taken classic heroes, and some villains, and put them into history to see if they fit. Vader and Churchill? Interesting.

Sea Diamonds

Erotica // Thursday, May 10, 2012
What could possibly be more exhilarating than covering your nude body in sparkling silver glitter and running up and down the beach with your best friend, splashing in the waves while the sun reflects off millions of tiny sparkles covering your glistening, gorgeous figures? Nothing. There is nothing that could possibly define a better afternoon, except however, if you were the photographer. Great set by Mandy-Lyn Antoniou of Kristy and Siouxsie, sirens in a sea of diamonds from Iona Beach, Richmond.

Sumo by Paolo Patrizi

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 10, 2012
This series starts with a great description: It’s the only sport where being obese is encouraged. That is probably pretty close to the case, but Japan-based photographer Paolo Patrizi's series is so much more than just documenting Sumo wrestling. It uncovers a bit of the myth, and puts a face to the behind-the-scenes life of a sumo wrestler, and their odd place in popular culture.

This one in particular, in a cafe, looks like something shot in 1920's Paris.
