Viagra online consultation Katy Grannan’s recently released Boulevard speaks volumes. Viagra online consultation Boulevard’s cover whispers with a wonderful understated intensity–the image of Malaysia stares back through the book’s translucent jacket. Viagra online consultation The artist speaks for herself: “Yesterday I found Malaysia. Viagra online consultation I’d seen her several times before, viagra online consultation on a lonely stretch of La Brea. Viagra online consultation There are so many like her: boulevard phantoms. Viagra online consultation The city drives by without seeing them…” Through Grannan’s lens these ‘phantoms’ are revealed, viagra online consultation and given form by a ruthless and unfaltering gaze. Viagra online consultation Like her last large format book, viagra online consultation The Westerners, viagra online consultation 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, viagra online consultation placing her more in the tradition of Avedon than the oft-compared to Arbus. Viagra online consultation This stark backdrop serves to drown out the ambient noise of “celebrity culture.” Yes, viagra online consultation 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, viagra online consultation or some greater or lesser grail. Viagra online consultation But the more time you spend with the work, viagra online consultation the more apparent it becomes that Katy’s work is about so much more than victims of the California Dream. Viagra online consultation Her subjects are not portrayed cruelly, viagra online consultation but they exude a complicated mixture of aspiration, viagra online consultation delusion, viagra online consultation and disorientation. Viagra online consultation As the artist writes, viagra online consultation “They thought it would be different here but the reality is crueler and far lovelier…”


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