Photographers I Love: Phillip-Lorca diCorcia

Managed to get to see a retrospective of all Phillip-Lorca diCorci’s major work at The Hepworth. Brilliant. How to choose and show a truly superb body of work. The image above belongs to Hustlers (1990-1992). Taken just over twenty years ago in Los Angeles in the vicinity of Santa Monica Boulevard, it features male prostitutes posing for the camera for a fee loosely equivalent to what they would charge for their services. DiCorcia paid the subjects and then advertised the price on the exhibition prints themselves. A sensitive subject but one well approached by DiCorcia.
