Michael Wolf's "The Architecture of Density"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 23, 2013
Michael Wolf's photographic study of Hong Kong, "The Architecture of Density," features photos of the city's buildings photographed without the horizon. "...By using this stylistic solution by eliminating the sky and horizon you give the feeling of unlimited size, because you have no idea how big the building is. It could be 100 stories or 200 stories, it could be a mile long. This illusion of unlimited size really conveys what we experience in megacities."

Pieter Hugo's "There's a Place in Hell for Me and My Friends"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 23, 2013
This morning we take a look back at one of our favorite photographers, Pieter Hugo's series There's a Place in Hell for Me and My Friends, a series of close-up portraits of the artist and his friends, all of whom call South Africa home. Through a digital process of converting colour images to black and white while manipulating the colour channels, Hugo emphasizes the pigment (melanin) in his sitters' skins so they appear heavily marked by blemishes and sun damage.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 23, 2013
Just in time for the start of the World Series today, we happened upon these vintage photos from the beginnings of baseball. Part of a collection at the New York Public Library, the photos were collected by A.G. Spalding, a former pitcher and entrepreneur who was a major force in the professionalization and commercialization of baseball in the 19th century. "You get some funny instances, these baseball players essentially before a backdrop of a Victorian garden, the sort of humorous fakery of a ball suspended on a string."
