Artists have bills, artists have rent. There’s some fantasy out there that the sheer drive of determination will put food on the table, as if your ability to work unpaid shows how much you ‘want it’. It doesn’t, it usually just shows what class you were born into. So, the creative arts become a class war, just like everything else.
Rya Kleinpeter and I are featured in Capricious Magazine’s special 10th anniversary, hardcover edition entitled High Tails.
High Tails is a 250+ page hardcover book of photography — including
iconic images of horses throughout the 20th century alongside work from contemporary and emerging photographers.
Featuring the work of over 80 artists including Dorothea Lange, Robert Mapplethorpe, Nan Goldin, Melanie Bonajo, Helmut Newton, Richard Prince, Viviane Sassen, Petra Collins, Collier Schorr and Ryan McGinley. The book is published in two special edition covers with the work of Beni Bischof and Sophie Mörner respectively.
If you were able to go to the New York Art Book Fair this weekend, Capricious had a booth with their new book High Tails!
