Universe Art: A Hurricane on Saturn

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 02, 2013
This incredible image was taken last November by the Cassini spacecraft of a hurricane on the surface of Saturn. Launched in 1997 to study Saturn, the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft arrived in 2004 and has been primarily studying the Great White Spot, a massive storm that occurs every 30 years. The Hurricane image is one of the first sunlit detailed views of Saturn's north pole. The eye of the storm is approximately 1,250 miles wide and spinning about 330 miles per hour!

Apparently The Dude Also Takes Photographs

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 01, 2013
Aside from acting and writing books, the dude also takes photographs. Jeff Bridges gives us a unique view into the world he grew up in and from a perspective we rarely get to see: from an actor on set. Bridges uses a Widelux camera for most of the images because he says that it is the closest to what the human eye can see. "I think I have a perspective that not many people have. And I get to take advantage of all the strange sources of light on set."

Photographs by John Clang

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 30, 2013
Singaporean photographer and visual artist John Clang's series Time, explores the concepts of movement in space and time. The series records a location, showing the passing of time by combining pieces of other photographs taken in the same location in a different moment for the final product. "There is a sense of intimate intricacy of how time moves, and how people, albeit in a different time, are actually closer to one another and traveling in the same shared space."

Photographs by Myoung Ho Lee

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
We are enjoying Seoul-based photographer Myoung Ho Lee's series of color photographs, entitled Tree. Lee photographs solitary trees framed against white canvas backdrops in the middle of natural landscapes. Installing the large canvases took a production crew and heavy cranes and much of the support system was removed in post, creating the illusion that the backdrop is floating.
