Lowest cost generic viagra Katy Grannan’s recently released Boulevard speaks volumes. Lowest cost generic viagra Boulevard’s cover whispers with a wonderful understated intensity–the image of Malaysia stares back through the book’s translucent jacket. Lowest cost generic viagra The artist speaks for herself: “Yesterday I found Malaysia. Lowest cost generic viagra I’d seen her several times before, lowest cost generic viagra on a lonely stretch of La Brea. Lowest cost generic viagra There are so many like her: boulevard phantoms. Lowest cost generic viagra The city drives by without seeing them…” Through Grannan’s lens these ‘phantoms’ are revealed, lowest cost generic viagra and given form by a ruthless and unfaltering gaze. Lowest cost generic viagra Like her last large format book, lowest cost generic viagra The Westerners, lowest cost generic viagra one could say her newest book captures “freaks.” Yet Boulevard’s subjects elicit an entirely different response from the viewer than Grannan’s past work.


Grannan’s ‘boulevard phantoms’ are captured against blank white walls of sheet rock and stucco, lowest cost generic viagra placing her more in the tradition of Avedon than the oft-compared to Arbus. Lowest cost generic viagra This stark backdrop serves to drown out the ambient noise of “celebrity culture.” Yes, lowest cost generic viagra a deteriorating Marilyn Monroe look-a-like and Malaysia’s heavily painted face recall the clichéd story of the star-gazer come to Hollywood in pursuit of fame, lowest cost generic viagra or some greater or lesser grail. Lowest cost generic viagra But the more time you spend with the work, lowest cost generic viagra the more apparent it becomes that Katy’s work is about so much more than victims of the California Dream. Lowest cost generic viagra Her subjects are not portrayed cruelly, lowest cost generic viagra but they exude a complicated mixture of aspiration, lowest cost generic viagra delusion, lowest cost generic viagra and disorientation. Lowest cost generic viagra As the artist writes, lowest cost generic viagra “They thought it would be different here but the reality is crueler and far lovelier…”


Boulevard is printed by our friends at Fraenkel Gallery, lowest cost generic viagra and they present the work with the compassion and patience they are known for. Lowest cost generic viagra Each subject appears on their own page, lowest cost generic viagra giving the viewer an opportunity to really look. Lowest cost generic viagra We at PIP urge you to dive in, lowest cost generic viagra and let yourselves be haunted…
