Photographer Jeremy Kost, the subject of a previous Artist Spotlight here at The Advocate, is fittingly releasing his new book, Fractured, in two versions.
The first version you can get at Kost's website, on Amazon, or other digital outlets, but the second version is very tempting: To defray the costs of production, Kost is offering a special artist's edition of just 100 copies. Each special edition comes with a unique, multiple-exposed Polaroid of your choice. Once you've paid, you will be given a link to a password-protected selection page, where you'll be able to select the Polaroid you'd like. It's pretty cool.
Kost's latest series consists of multiple-exposure Polaroids of young, beautiful men -- a subject and technique that Kost has been investigating for nearly a decade. The mesmerizing, layered Polaroid images in Fractured were made throughout 2013, but only a fraction of the work has been seen outside the studio before the publication of this book. Whether cropped to show luminous details or simply floated on the page, each photograph represents a tangible, beautiful moment layered in mystery.
The limited-edition event kicks off today, from 6-8 p.m. at BOOKMARC in Los Angeles (8407 Melrose Place, Los Angeles, CA 90069), followed by a sibling event at BOOKMARC New York (400 Bleecker Street, NY, NY 10014).
