Most fashion photography is done by gay people finding women sexy,” Teller says, “which is sort of not sexy at all, at least to a heterosexual man. She’s so retouched, so airbrushed, without any human response at all, and, well, you don’t really want to fuck a doll.”

Last night I was reading Nancy Spector's amazingly lucid book on the work of Felix Gonzalez-Torres. A lucid art book read is not a usual thing and I loved Spector's precision in situating Gonzalez-Torres' work within the context of the post-modern/ post-colonial activism of the Early 90's . I did not know, for instance about the heavy relevance the collective Group Material bore regarding the artist's career. Here is an excerpt of what Spector had to say which totally reinvigorated me this morning.

Is it a sign that NY is vulnerable? Or is it that still raging Euro? Whatever the case, the Hiss Squad has been assuring TI that several players of varying scale, size and leverage have been buzzing in and out of NY with plans to crash the NY modeling agency party. Most wanted editorial babe Anna S of Silent has NOT been placed with a NY agency...which means casting directors seeking her services will have to speak to Silent directly..Shhhhhhhhhhh...and Elite Paris Gerald Marie is been rumored as being involved in a really, really big plot RE:NYC. The re-set continues....In the meantime...Kevin Apana, formerly of IMG's Men's division and Public Image answering his phone this week at his new Wilhelmina desk. Headed there now to sip some hiss.
PS Marliyn's Eniko is set to be a big big moment. New York didn't get her last season, but a lot of the people-who-matter now have. Stay tuned!
