the violent and the sexual tuesday
im not sure what the intentions are in contemporary fashion photography, but these three photo editorials struck me as the most demanding and powerful - perhaps for all the wrong reasons / perhaps that what makes it oh so right. my aunt told me at dinner last night that an you should always revisit an image or a look that immediately repulses you. here you may find that long sought after cutting edge. thus, rape, fascistic sexual domination, forced oral sex, violently cropped chests, and sweaty feeble arms combine to form the most problematic and glamorous visions of the day.
