‘Santalopes are everywhere’. That’s what artist Andrew Erdos will lead you to believe with his current project, The Sweetest Thing. The project documents an international fraternity of perverted and well-traveled Santas celebrating debauchery, idolatry, and lots of candy. The absurdity of this year-round celebration of Christmas, with its ridiculous costumes and overtly sexual themes, helps the viewer marvel in and enjoy the American trash culture on display. Erdos is known for working in all mediums including photography. His work has been shown at many museums including The National Centre for Contemporary Art in Moscow and the Beijing BS1 Contemporary Art Center in China.
The self-portrait work of New York-based photographer Jen Davis is an honest and poignant look at self-image and isolation. She currently has a solo show at the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art. [see more photos in this series at Feature Shoot]
