He even mentions in interviews that he imagines black women with the backside of a "Race horse" (and even admitted to exaggerating images of a lot of black models who worked for him like Toukie Smith *because he really needed a black women with a backside similar to that of a race horse).
And even the term "Jungle Fever" implies that you have to be sick to consider black women as being attractive (and the old European colonial saying comes to mind "You can take the Negro out of the jungle, but you can't take the jungle out of the Negro".
It's time that artists be called out for their unashamed showcase of exotifying women of color, the last time I checked privilege was not a sign of being a genius.
Having a obsession with dark skin is just as bad as having a hate for dark skin, this isn't flattering at all but just another white male playing out his dark skin fetish.
People can choose to see his strong interest in black women as exploitive and racial insensitivity, or they can focus on the strength of a master visionary who captured the visual vocabulary of a specific time and place and maxed it out. The newly energized gay movement of that time fed into JPG's imagination, adding a heightened sense of the physical form and sensual drama to his portfolio.
A brilliant record of the party life in manhattan mixing high and low, black and white, women and men and everything in between with joyful abandon.
Goude writes brilliant essays to accompany his stunning photography of such concepts as 'Grace Jones,' Puerto Ricans, Gays of the late 70's.
It's one of my most treasured books and always is a favourite when guests drop by.
