Since last year when we first learned of JR’s (interviewed) photobooth truck in Japan, the mobile unit has made its way to many different locales (including New York’s Time Square) spreading his Inside Out love. The truck has now traveled to Los Angeles and is currently located at 7600 Beverly Blvd until 7 pm tonight if you want to get your photo taken and participate. For future locations (next stop is Las Vegas) you can follow the plans on their website or Instagram. Discuss JR here.

Currently on view at Martha Otero Gallery and presented by Converse and Union Los Angeles is a photo exhibition and first edition book release, exploring the social and physical themes of Los Angeles and its neighborhoods by photographer Michael Shields. Taken from inside a LAPD helicopter, Shields’ photographs focus on the physical environment of the greater Los Angeles area and on the resulting social patterns within the city, rather than the beach and glamor, fun-in-the-sun summer shots typically taken of LA. Through these wide shots […]
If you haven’t had a chance to visit the 55th Venice Biennale, you have till November 24th to experience the cacophony of visual styles. This year, the Biennale features an Encyclopedic Palace, curated by Massimiliano Gioni, 88 national pavilions, 47 collateral shows, a series of lectures, performances, debates and events, François Pinault’s two exhibition spaces and the Fondazione Prada. The words “art fatigue” do not begin to describe how you’ll feel at the end of a week spent hopping on and off vaporetti and crossing […]
David Choe (featured) recently travelled to Afghanistan with some of his friends, including Estevan Oriol who handled the photography for the trip. His adventures were documented in his own words in the latest issue of Juxtapoz and was an interesting read, to say the least, so pick up a copy if you can. The magazine also published some of the photos online (some also seen below), including ones that didn’t make the article. For those looking for more from the Choefather, he will be opening his first […]
On Thursday night, Stephen Webster in Beverly Hills hosted the opening for Amanda Charchian’s first-ever solo exhibition, titled The Collective Yes. The show, which is also presented by The Tappan Collective, combines sculpture and photography, exploring the traditions of mysticism, surrealism, and land art to investigate the momentary transcendence of space and time. The word Yes in the show’s title refers to the personal surrender that catalyzes these moments. The artist has chosen to photograph using analog film cameras to achieve results that more accurately […]
In this year’s VICE photo issue (recently released), an interesting collaboration between Barry McGee and photographer Jim Goldberg was featured. The series of works entitled Interfearance features some of McGee’s patterned motifs that he is famous for, juxtaposed with Goldberg’s shots. Take a look at the other joint artist-photographer creations here, and enjoy more of McGee x Goldberg’s pieces below. And, if you are interested in checking out the work in person, VICE will be putting on the collaborations show at the Superchief Gallery in New […]
Continuing a long line of artists seen here on AM who have collaborated on album covers, a Tim Barber image graces the cover of Elton John’s soon-to-be released The Diving Board. The former photo editor of famed Vice Magazine’s iconic shot of a man standing on edge, over looking an ocean, looks to be somewhat modified to fit the format – if you remember, this piece was seen at his solo show in Los Angeles in 2010 (covered). If you are looking for more from Barber, check […]
It looks like Chinese artist Liu Bolin was back in New York again recently since the last time he was in the Big Apple when we hung out with him and JR as they worked on an interesting collaborative project together. While in town for his current exhibition at Eli Klein Fine Art, site of his show in 2012 (covered), the photographer and painter decided to stop by 5Pointz Aerosol Arts Center, in an area of Queens which has heavy graffiti presence. The walls there will soon be replaced […]
Sonia Rentsch is an artist and designer based in Melbourne who worked recently on a project that caught our eye. Harm Less is a series of photos she arranged for the January Biannual that featured plant life arranged to resemble various weapons. The dried plant life stills were meant to “ponder the themes of Life, Death, Ritual and Evolution.” Check out more images below… Via Highsnobiety.
Renowned Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama, whose work we last saw at a Tate Modern retrospective in 2012 (covered), will be showing in Los Angeles next month. Working typically with grainy black & white images that display the cultural changes in the Land of the Rising Sun after World War II, Moriyama’s work was influential in shaping how the world perceived Japan in the 1960s and onwards. The opening reception for the exhibition, which brings together a selection of pieces that span his career, is scheduled for July 12th […]
