Every Playboy Centerfolds (2009)
This series stemmed from an assignment in my Advanced Photography course and the prompt was “Erotica vs. Fine Art”. I had been researching various sources of erotica and came across the book Playboy: The Complete Centerfolds. At the same time I was slightly obsessed with the artist Idris Khan especially with his photograph Every… Bernd and Hilla Becher Gable Sided Houses. There was something so arresting about the simplistic nature of layering all those iconic photographs together which brought forth something entirely postmodern yet playful and formally compelling as well. It was this simple equation of combining Idris Khan and the Playboy Centerfolds that brought forth this series.
