We're going to take a moment to visit with a marvelous photographer: Martha Cooper. Aside from her crisp urban imagery, we love this lady for her badass, never-stop attitude.

Swoon’s “Swimming Cities” project ranks for us as one of the most impressive art installations of the year, arguably the decade. An adventure like this [Swoon and her crew essentially constructed a vessels out of trash and hit the open sea] has an equally intriguing back-story. Read a personal account of the quest by artist Spy Emerson here.

We’ve been hyped on this issue for months around the Jux offices: our December 2009 edition. To celebrate the year’s closing, and our 15th year in existence, we dedicated an entire issue to one of the most groundbreaking and influential collective movements of our existence: The Barnstormers.

Just to make it all crystal clear, we're reminding you once again that our big 15th Anniversary Art Auction is being held online at CharityBuzz.com in two waves. Why? Because we got so much stunning artwork, we thought it would be better to break it up so you all had less artwork to cull through. This Dave Ellis piece (who will be in our upcoming December 2009 issue) is part of the first wave, and already has multiple bids.

Swoon (Juxtapoz cover #73). Oh, you've seen her: from New York's P.S. 1 and Deitch Projects to Hui No'eau on Maui and Berlin's gritty street corners. Notorious for constructing a giant floating raft and sailing it down river (twice!), she is neither a pirate nor a street artist.
