Hanging here with a fav of mine Philip Lorca di Corcia. Love the theatricality of his work and his allusive storytelling…conflating people and places in an unexpected way…decoding becomes subjective..This piece is from Hustlers, a series made on the streets of LA in the early 90’s. He hired male prostitutes to pose in constructed scenarios that enmesh fact and fiction. This ambiguity directly puts into question the notion that a picture is an accurate representation of truth…Wrong…but that’s a discussion for another time.
