Los Surcos de la Ciudad

The Grooves of the City Project

French photographer and street artist JR has just completed his latest epic project, “Los Surcos de la Ciudad” (“The Grooves of the City”) in Spain. Seeking to tell the tale of the ancient Spanish Mediterranean port city of Cartagena in the region of Murcia through the faces of its oldest residents, the 25-year-old artist spent three days photographing the city’s elders and then transferring the giant-sized portraits onto the city’s walls both new and old and in various states of decomposition.

My Luxuria, Alex Sandwell Kliszynski

I came upon a new blog the other day, Sex and Blogs (Sexblo.gs), and they featured some images from a recent exhibit at the Photographers’ Gallery in London, freshfacedandwildeyed 08. Above, an image from Alex Sandwell Kliszynski’s photo series, “My Luxuria”, which explores the idea of the human/doll composite. Below, Philip Ewe, from his series, “Sex Positions for Singles.”
