Publisher's Description

Just like his mentor Larry Clark, Leigh Ledare deals with rather sensitive topics.

After he made headlines with Pretend You're Actually Alive, a work based on the documentation of his mother's extroverted sexuality, he explores in this new project a couple's intimacy, challenged by a love triangle.

Ledare uses photography, archival material, and text to explore human agency, social relationships, taboos and the photographic in equal turns.

Formally trained in photography, he has, in a relatively short time, developed a body of work that is coherent, complex, biting in its intelligence, and decidedly provocative. His resulting images are often sumptuous, saturated with colour, and surprisingly beautiful.

But they also, and importantly, disconcert us, they make us uncomfortable, and, in the process, they raise questions about the functioning of the image and the construction of subjectivity in contemporary culture.
