Alma Haser's "Cosmetic Surgery"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 16, 2013
This morning we take a look at London-based photographer Alma Haser's Cosmetic Surgery series. Each photograph is a three-step process. After taking the portrait, Alma will print multiple images of the subject's face and fold them into complicated origami modular constructions. She then places it back on the original face and re-photographs the whole thing.

Richard Prince's Stickered Figures

Erotica // Monday, July 15, 2013
In this collection of found pornographic black and white photographs, artist Richard Prince meticulously selects and places DVD and CD stickers onto graphic erotic images, covering the explicit sexual content with suggestive titles that give the images a fresh and previously absent depth of narrative. Prince's "rephotographs" are evocative in their new contextual environment, implying histories of exploitation, violence, personal tragedies, and individual characteristics absent in their original framework as objectified images for the pure sexual pleasure of their viewership. 

Kirsty Mitchell "Wonderland" (2009-2013)

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 15, 2013
The story behind Wonderland, from Ms Mitchell's site: Wonderland began in the summer of 2009 and has now been running for 4 years. It was started in memory of my mother Maureen who died 7 months before in November 2008, and has since become a turning point in my approach to photography and consequently my entire life.

Carlo Van de Roer's Photographs Capture the Subject's Aura

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 15, 2013
Each of these portraits by photographer Carlo Van de Roer uses an AuraCam 6000 to capture not only the subject but the color of their aura. According to the Auracam 6000 website (possibly circa 1995), the Auracam uses hand sensors connected via cables to the camera. Polaroid instant film is put into the camera and when the 'customer' puts their hands onto the sensor, the camera gathers 'biofeedback parameter data.' Basically, the thing translates the electromagnetic field of a person and projects it as a colorful field around the film.

We like sandwiches a lot. We thought our love of sandwiches was unmatched. Then we saw the genius of the 'Sandwich Book' by Polish photographer, illustrator and graphic designer Pawel Piotrowski.

More From Daniel Gonzalez

Erotica // Monday, July 08, 2013
We've previously featured young Colombian photographer Daniel Gonzalez on the Erotica blog, and we're pleased to do so once more.

He has already been featured on a number of blogs and published in books and magazines, and we will enthusiastically follow his trajectory as he progresses along a path toward artistic achievement and success.

Nir Arieli's Tension

Erotica // Monday, July 08, 2013
"I can't dance," asserts New York-based photographer Nir Arieli. "Whenever I am forced to try, I stumble or freeze or drink enough to disappear. However, this time, for the first time, I found myself actively involved in dancing - even if by using someone else's body." Working as a sort of visual choreographer, Arieli captures in static images the raw emotion and masculine elegance of male dancers, collaborating with them through verbal dialogue to create an entirely new language of movement. As Arieli explains, "my subjects provided me with physical intelligence. I only had vague mental images, a camera, and a long history of unused dancefloors."
