Erotic Photography by Jean Clemmer

Juxtapoz // Saturday, February 04, 2012
Jean Clemmer (d. 2001) was a Swiss-born photographer who largely worked in France. Her iconic photographs of 1960's Paris explore the utopian fantasies and sexual freedom of the era, focusing on the eroticism of French couturier Paco Rabanne's semi-nude models, dressed in his "unwearable" fashions of futuristic plastic and aluminum chain-mail jewelry.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 31, 2012
Massimo Vitali's large scale photographs always grab our attention with their beautiful array of bright, sun-bleached hues.

Famous Photographers Posing with Their Famous Photos

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 25, 2012
We thought this was a great series, having famous photographers posing with their most iconic works. The portraits are part of a new book shot by Tim Mantoani Behind Photographs: Archiving Photographic Legends. We know you hear over and over again that photography is a dying medium, but when you see the best of the best, there is something really special to be taken in.

L'Horizon by Romain Laurent

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 25, 2012
With the prevalence of urban surf shops and the urbanite who spends his weekend with a surfboard strapped to their wagon, this beautiful series of a surfboarder in harmony and piece as he straddles his board throughout Manhattan is timely and well-executed. Romain Laurent's L'Horizon captures a peaceful calm amongst a dense urban space.

Qaqortoq, Greenland by JOEL TETTAMANTI

Juxtapoz // Sunday, January 22, 2012
We, as do many, have an interest in visiting Greenland. What a compelling place it seems to be, with such a massive land with little to no people. Swiss photographer Joël Tettamanti did a photo series on Greenland's most populated southern city, Qaqortoq, home of 3,230 residents.

The "Eye-Contact" Tumblr

Juxtapoz // Sunday, January 22, 2012
Growing up, we would stop films and draw quick sketches of the still frame, and I'm sure we're not the only ones to utilize this great source of imagery. Good films are non-stop sources of beautiful composition, and sure enough someone with a tumblr thought about this.
