Book Review: Katie Burnett "I Wash you Dry" Vogue Italy

Tuesday November 8, 2022

Detriti di spiagge in bianco e nero, duplicazioni formato collage di gambe e braccia che sovrapposti creano un effetto straniante, orizzonti sfocati, frammenti di pelle sotto la lente di ingrandimento. Sfogliando le pagine di I Wash You Dry, il secondo libro della fotografa e stylist che vive a New York Katie Burnettsi ha l’impressione che il corpo sia tutt’uno con il paesaggio surreale, epurato da ogni colore...

Book Review: Katie Burnett "I Wash you Dry" I-d Magazine

Thursday November 3, 2022

This month, Katie Burnett releases her second book of photographs. A stylist by trade — with clients like GucciBurberry and Calvin Klein — Katie only began taking pictures herself two years ago, shooting self-portraits with a catalogue of props (elastic bands, packet noodles and fridge magnets) in her Brooklyn apartment. Encouraged by her friend, the photographer Paul Kooiker, this humorous black-and-white series became Cabin Fever, a book released last year. I Wash You Dry, the new follow-up published by Dashwood Books, covers similar territory as the previous book, with the introduction of the Jamaican sea....

While sock puppets, nude figures, and Jamaica might be unlikely bedfellows, in Katie Burnett’s world they appear harmoniously. Following up from Cabin Fever – the artist and stylist’s debut that visually documented her time in lockdown – she has today released her sophomore book, I Wash You Dry, an offering that features the aforementioned naked bodies and sock puppets, shot in Jamaica. ‘It’s one of my favourite places,’ Burnett tells System. ‘I knew I wanted to go there, a place I knew, and feel inspired. So, I essentially made a bunch of sock puppets in Brooklyn and then went to Jamaica to do this project.’

Book Review: Ari Marcopoulos in Museé Magazine

Thursday October 7, 2021

Ari Marcopoulos is a self-taught photographer who was born in Amsterdam in 1957. In 1980 when he was 23, he moved to New York City and became a prominent photographer for hip-hop culture, skater culture, snowboard culture, and fashion. His recently released book, Polaroids 92-95 (CA) is one part of a two-part series documenting the skating scene during the early 1990s. One book takes place in New York and one in California, and while the New York book’s photographs were taken from a single skate park, the Brooklyn Banks, the CA version takes place in a multiple across the Californian...
