Format: Paperback
Terrific book by Ledare and Roth publishing. The work is very shocking XXX images of his mother who seems derailed in her late middle age belief she is a porn star or some such. Zero boundaries. Mr Ledare and the publishers -PPP/Roth- have made a wonderful book, very well designed and presented in a slip case. File this under those rare 'cri du coeur' works like Richard Billinghams 'Ray's a Laugh' that come along once in blue moon. I remain apprehensive of how Mr Ledare can follow up on such work, like Mr Billingham, he may try to prove his artistry in other forms - but will remain under the inescapable shadow of this. My only critique is that it seems to have been deliberately printed to become rare. 1000 were made, which is just about enough, but then it was quickly withdrawn from sale, and can now only be had at many hundreds of dollars. (it was already high at the original $85). I accept publishers withholding the last copies for a higher price, but this seemed to be 'reserved' after just a handful of books were sold. Such publishing shenanigans aside, the work is great.

A third-rate photographer incapable of relying on his own skill must instead exploit shock tactics and controversy in order to drum up enough interest to sell copies of his book.
In this case it seems not to have worked.

Poor show.

Are we really going to pay money for crap like this? What's next? Documenting sex with animals? Some things are better left unsaid, and this is one of those things.
