Until the World No Longer Exists "What we see is not made up of what we are seeing but rather from what we are. " Fernando Pessoa The night, the sex, the wandering… and the need to photograph it all, not so much the perceived act but more like a simple exposure to common and even extreme experiences… It is an inseparable part of photographic practice, in a certain sense, to grasp at existence or risk, desire, the unconsciousness and chance, all of which continue to be essential elements. No moral posturing, no judgement, simply the principle of affirmation, necessary to explore certain universes, to go deep inside, without any care. A ride into photography to the vanishing point of orgasm and death.
Wallpaper’s creative affair with legendary American photographer Larry Sultan has been going on for quite some time. He’s turned his hand at still life, interiors and fashion location shoots for us over the past five years, each delivered with that characteristic, bizarrely voyeuristic style we love so much. For W* 108, Sultan shot our mischievous ‘Home Alone’ men’s fashion shoot, as well as our limited edition cover for subscribers – a reworking of his iconic ‘Practicing Golf Swing’ from the 1992 series, ‘Pictures from Home’.
