Joaquin Jara is a multidisciplinary artist. All of his aspects, from interventions in natural and urban environments to painting, sculpture, and experimental movies, converge on a common objective.
The portrait is displayed as an object subject to internal and external forces, those of the environment, which generate constant changes. Therefore, it will be a representation of the subject processes. An instant inside a sequence of images in continuous transformation. An image saved, which does not illustrate identity, but testifies it. An image without a possible conclusion, as it resides on instability.

If you are not in the market for a vibrator at this time. Or if you want to get right to it then you are in luck. Fingers will work too. They just require a little more practice, a little more patience, and a little more time. But if you follow the 7 steps I laid out, you will make a girl squirt.
Artifacts From the Hiroshima Atomic Blast
Slate has some haunting images today of some of the clothes that survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, and have been kept in storage since. An excerpt from the article:
In 2007, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum opened its archive to Ishiuchi, and since then she’s photographed hundreds of artifacts. Some of the objects came from bombed buildings or were found on the streets; others came from families who held onto items for decades after the blast. People are still coming into the museum to donate, Roth said. “It’s not a nostalgic project. She’s not interested in that. She’s not even really interested in the history of what happened in Hiroshima because it’s known. She’s more interested in the life of these objects she’s photographing and the life that’s there now,” he said.
