Attractive cover - dreary contents - primitive photos
on November 10, 2011
This book reminded me of Toyin Ibidapo's Cult of Boys, in that it features a fairly sensitive and attractive cover photo, but is filled with photos which, in the main, only a mother could love.
Just as most of the photos in Cult of Boys were taken in Ms Ibidapo's bedroom, so these photos are taken on the photographer's floorboards or on unmade beds. The beds I can handle, but the floorboards do nothing for me.
To me, and this is largely subjective, given the comments of previous reviewers, Ms Yatrofsky's models are so banal and so inert that it is certain I will not return to this book. A single perusal was quite enough.
All the models are listed at the end of the book - there are at least 30 of them.
There is a two page introduction to the book by Weston Bingham of East Village Boys, but alas, he and I are on a different wavelength.
