Native New Yorker VALERIE PHILLIPS‘ work has been called gritty, graphic and bullshit free. Her new book HI YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL HOW ARE YOU lives up to the expectation. It will surely be no favorite on coffee tables of traditional glamour fashionistas. Stringy dyed hair, lots of pink, ponies, kittens, hairy armpits and legs are what subject ARVIDA BYSTRÖM shares with the camera. Gritty for some, a wonderfully innocent and magic world for others. Phillips has been photographing Swedish artist and sometimes model Byström for the past two years. The images are raw and real. HI YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL HOW ARE YOU is a portrait of a young woman, serious but funny, smart and elusive, fierce, fragile, and feminist. It questions traditional societal expectations of female beauty, demeanour and lifestyle. HI YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL HOW ARE YOU by VALERIE PHILLIPS published by Longer Moon Farther, paperback, 6.75″ x 8.25″, £20, ISBN 978-0954340353. Ask for it at your friendly neighborhood art book store, or order online at TI PI TIN.
