For his project Fair Judgement, Seattle-based photographer William Rugen frequents many state fairs in the Western United States, including Washington, Texas, Utah, and Arizona. After years spent away from rural fair grounds, the project has gifted him with the opportunity to relive small town childhood moments spent balloon racing and gazing awestruck at some of the rides, which he himself avoided due to motion sickness. Fair Judgement has birthed a side project devoted solely to nostalgic visions of rides and games, seen with a strong eye for color and shape.

Ellen_Brooks

Balancer

For her 1978-1985 project Tableaux, California photographer and sculptor Ellen Brooks constructed miniature stage sets on which male and female figurines play out domestic dramas that cut to the core of gender roles and expectations. In her immaculately crafted worlds, reality is both shrunken in size and elevated in theatricality, with routine daily frustrations told through heightened allegorical scenes.

When New York-based photographer Justin Walker was approached by Sinsemil.la, an underground fine dining club specializing in marijuana-infused cuisine, he welcomed the opportunity to show the controversial plant in a new context. Sinsemil.la, he explains, creates its menu by pairing varieties of cannabis with foods that compliment its natural flavors and psychoactive effects. Their ingredients are locally sourced and organically farmed with the intention of creating one-of-a-kind meals, not merely for the sake of getting stoned.

Breaking open one of the many plastic bottles littering on the shores of the Guerrero coastline, photographer Alfredo Blasquez arranges the needles contained within into an austere circle against the sand. As part of Limpia Guerrero, an environmental initiative that implements education, scientific research, and community action to clean the beaches of Guerrero, a pilot study was launched in Acapulco, Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa, and San Jerónimo in October and November of 2013. 125 miles of the shore and several urban beaches were combed for litter and toxic debris.
