The 62 acres of auto repair shops and salvage yards that make up Willets Point, Queens has changed very little over the past few decades unlike much of everything else in New York. Many people would like to see Willets Point stay that way but a 3 billion-renovation effort geared towards the area says otherwise. PhotographerThomas Prior (featured in our current issue) has been visiting Willets Point since going to Mets games as a kid and began documenting it’s grimy conditions and community starting in 2012.
Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 08, 2014
All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.

The nine day festival features rides, food, music, and of course fireworks. New York-based photographer Thomas Prior travelled down to the festival to document the chaos, excitement, explosions, and fun?
