Selected photographs 1982 - 2006
Whether photographing his wife and two young sons, sometimes sleeping tenderly together in a sun-drenched bed, other times spacing out by the pool or in the car; the international snowboarding scene, from Japan to Iran; or his peers in the world of dissenting, outsider creativity (filmmaker Harmony Korine and his grandmother, well before the release of Kids; the late monologist, Spalding Gray, who died of suicidal drowning in 2004, eerily photographed floating underwater in 1987), Ari Marcopoulos brings us all the way to the inside of an insider's world. This tight collection of sexy documentary portraits bites off exactly as much as it wants to chew, and features original writing by Will Bradley, Kate Fowle, Jeremy Sigler and Angelique Spaninks.
