You’ll never meet anyone quite like Arvida Byström.

For Sunday, photographer Paul Kooiker captures a faceless, nude model in her garden. As she arranges her body into contorted forms, she constructs shapes that are at once erotically charged and non-sexual. Though she lacks any identifying facial features, Kooiker’s images are sequential, obsessive nearly to the point of voyeurism. In this private, sequestered space, he documents the female form in a way that is objectifying yet reverent, worshipful yet obscene.

Paul Kwiatkowski’s illustrated coming-of-age novel And Every Day Was Overcast is a raw and frenzied stream-of-consciousness exploration of boyhood sexual awakenings as told through a haze of drug use, teenage anxiety, and Floridian humidity. The first-person narrative is both intimate and anonymous, autobiographical and fictional. Snapshots from the artist’s own adolescence in the 1990s, taken with disposable cameras, cut through passages of text like intrusive memories of a long-forgotten Florida youth culture. Also included in the iPad edition of the novel are audio recordings of field interviews, electronic melodies, and animal noises.
