"Beauty is everywhere, and it’s not a matter of cosmetics, money, race or social status, but more about being yourself," writes Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc, currently traveling the world to capture images of women internationally.

Paul Kooiker, a photographer based in Amsterdam, has created some incredible nude and erotic portraits. They run the gamut in tone from creepy and voyeuristic to ethereal.

Photography // Tuesday, August 25, 2015
Tony Gleaton, a portrait photographer focusing on black life, died on August 15th at the age of 67. Born in Detroit, Gleaton began his photography in the late 1970s in New York fashion photography, but quit to pursue what would become a decades-long exploration of what it means to be black. He photographed African Americans in the United States, but also traveled to Central and South America and Samoa for his portraits. 

Alex Garant is the Queen of Double Eyes

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 25, 2015
After looking at Alex Garant’s oil paintings, portraits swirling with extra eyes and lips, we’re actually a little nauseated. The paintings are beautifully executed but give the viewer a feeling that they’re drunk or disoriented. Garant calls herself “Queen of Double Eyes,” and intends the effects as an “exorcism of the soul,” her “protagonists trying to escape themselves.”

Self-Portraits and Nature by Lina Scheynius

Photography // Wednesday, December 24, 2014
We have been following the career of Lina Scheynius for a few years, and there were a few updates recently that made us want to share with the Juxtapoz audience. We know we post a lot of nudes and self-portraits on the site, but few do it with the detail, connection to nature, and use of light quite like Lina. This work is only going to get better and better. 

Made of Money Portraits by Evan Wondolowski

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 28, 2014
We all want it, we all need it…$$$. Evan Wondolowski shows his meaning or shall we say obsession to money in these creative portraits. The bills are rendered into the likes of 50 cent, Denis Rodman, Ron Paul and Barack Obama, relinquishing the value from a medium of exchange to a medium of expression.

Money Is Material: Money Portraits by Mark Wagner

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 24, 2014
The Avant/Garde Diaries has done it again with a fantastic video that artistically documents the money portraits of Mark Wagner. The artist is masterful at arranging and re-arranging American dollars into elaborate portraits of politicians and famous works of art... this video does his work justice.
