Photographer David Roemer

Erotica // Monday, August 05, 2013

Roemer has quickly established himself as part of the new generation of image-makers in the fashion industry, pushing the boundaries of movement, power, and expression.

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 03, 2013
A beautiful set of photos from North Korea and photographer David De Vleeschauwer for Classe Touriste.

"Katharsis": Lucha Libre Documented @ Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 02, 2013
The Katharsis exhibition is comprised with images from the Photography Collection of Fundación Televisa, becoming a documentary and artistic tour through the real and imaginary arenas of Mexican wrestling or lucha libre. Entrenched within pop culture since the 1930s, lucha libre has become for Mexicans an obsession harkening back to gladiator battles and Aztec warriors. The public is not resigned to the role of spectator; but instead, they fervently participate in the complex and boundless theatricality of lucha libre.

It look us a second to realize that these landscapes by London-based photographer Carl Warner were far from conventional.

"The Language of the Wall" by Brassai

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 31, 2013
The desire to draw in public, carve your name into a wall or a park bench goes back pretty far. Lets just say forever, I mean, cave paintings? However, we do always find it interesting to see what kind of public/street art was going on throughout history. Brassai, a Hungarian sculptor, photographer and filmmaker who is best known for his nighttime photographs in Paris during the early 20th century spent three decades documenting wall carvings and markings which he titled "The Language of the Wall." Fascinating!

Polaroids by Chloe Aftel

Erotica // Saturday, July 27, 2013
We are in the waning days of summer, about a month to go, and we think a good way of celebrating comes in the form of the polaroid photography of various women clothed and not so-clothed by fashion and commercial photographer Chloe Aftel. Chloe has a great resume of editiorial shoots for Levi's, Google, and Nintendo, but perhaps a little nudity would never hurt anyone...
