500 pages of Eric Kroll’s photographs of New York City.
All collectors of Eric Kroll books and photographs should include this new
There are two Eric Kroll books recognized as classic the
first being ”Sex Object” 1976. He has done more than a dozen books.
This should be the third classic.
The book is available in a standard and two special editions.
Below is what Kroll wrote in the introduction of the book to describe what he did :
“Some of the photos in this book were shot on assignment from Downtown art publications, like the Soho Weekly News or the East Village Eye, but most were self-generated.
There is no discipline in my life. No order. I used to think that chaos helps creativity—I’m not so sure about that anymore. There were two intense periods of work, it seems, during the time I lived in New York: in the mid seventies, and around the time Leah, my eldest daughter, was born, in 1984. There are innumerable photographs from those decades and luckily some of the subject matter has made it easy to remember when and where certain pictures were shot. In the seventies: The Rolling Stones on a flatbed truck, rolling down Fifth Avenue, in May of 1975; partygoers at Bianca Jagger‘s birthday party at Studio 54 on May 2, 1977; the Dead Boys at CBGB’s on May 4, 1977; Blondie in rehearsal on October 18, 1977 (a date which was easy to recall, seeing as Reggie Jackson hit three home runs for the New York Yankees in a World Series on that very same day, and I remember that I kept leaving the rehearsal session to watch the home run replays on T.V.); Grace Jones performing at Studio 54 on December 29, 1977. In the eighties: John Sex at Danceteria in 1983; Robert Mapplethorpe at Robert Miller Gallery, and Dondi at Fun Gallery, in March of 1983; Madonna at Danceteria on October 3, 1983; Kenneth Anger in November of 1984. That whole year was busy because I also photographed Greer Lankton, David Wojnarowicz, Mike Bidlo, Rick Prol, Luis Frangella, Richard Hambleton—the pier at Canal Street was teeming with artists—Kenny Scharf with his wife and daughter, Keith Haring, and Andy Warhol in his art car. And many, many more artists and musicians.” Eric Kroll, AZ 2021

This exhibition was initiated by Pakito Bolino after being inspired by ‘NAROK’ photo book by Stephen Bessac and published by Timless Ed. in 2019.
This book shows the various reinterpretations of Thai hell’s gardens done by a myriad of artists from all over the world. To recreate those hellish visions, they used very different medias such as painting, drawing, screen printing, etching, sculptures, video,… This a state-of-the-art tribute to the mortuary cult and also to Thai popular culture dealing with that subject such as horror mangas.

Presentation text in french for the small exhibition at Chateau H in Saint Julia :
Peter Christopherson (1955-2010) était un artiste protéiforme qui a réalisé de nombreux vidéo clips commerciaux (Yes, Rage Against The Machine ou Nine Inch Nails) ainsi que de nombreuses pochettes de disques (Pink Floyd et Peter Gabriel) alors qu’il était membre du groupe de designer anglais Hipgnosis. Ses créations artistiques bien plus personnelles se sont révélées au travers de la musique électronique (Throbbing Gristle et Coil) et surtout dans la photographie. Peter Christopherson était avant tout un photographe qui a commencé très tôt dès le collège. Devenu adulte, son style s’est affirmé en travaillant des thématiques sombres et subversives. Son intérêt particulier (assez rares dans les années 70) pour les faits divers et les serial killers l’a entre autre emmené à réaliser une série intitulée « A Way To Die » représentant des scènes de crimes sordides et de suicides violents où se mêlent de manière assez troublantes horreur et érotisme. Les références aux Larmes d’Eros de George Bataille et aux Garçons Sauvages de William Burroughs sembleront évidentes tout comme les Giallo de Dario Argento ou Mario Bava.
