Petra Collins PETRA COLLINS CONVERSATION WITH MARILYN MINTER CONTRIBUTIONS BY KARLEY SCIORTINO, JAMIA WILSON, BARBIE FERREIRA, AND DIANA VERAS

The first monograph by photographer Petra Collins presents the world of a thoroughly modern creative. Since bursting into the zeitgeist, the precocious Petra Collins has captured the hearts of the art and fashion worlds alike. Collins champions an inclusive mode of representation that inspires young women to celebrate how they live now and their agency in creating their image. When Collins shoots—in series ranging from controversial self-portraits to emotionally charged and intensely colored works—she operates on the joys, excitement, tedium, and madness of growing up in today’s interconnected kingdom of images.

Los Angeles is both background and subject in the respective oeuvres of Israel and Ellis. For Israel, the American dream, as embodied by the L.A. mythos, remains affecting and potent, and he approaches his hometown with an uncanny coupling of local familiarity and anthropological curiosity. While Ellis, who became famous for his portrait of an amoral, decadent L.A. of the 1980s in his debut novel Less Than Zero, has continued to elaborate upon his jaundiced vision of a superficial youth society over the past two decades. Now these two artists have come together to create a lively discourse on their city. At Israel’s provocation, Ellis has written short texts that Israel then converted into various fonts and combined with commercial stock images. These striking images are displayed in full color, along with double-page installation photos of the 2016 exhibition and insightful essays and interviews. Michael Tolkin is an American filmmaker and novelist. He is the recipient of the Edgar Award for Best Motion Picture Screenplay for The Player, which he adapted from his own novel of the same name. An art curator, critic, and art historian, Hans Ulrich Obrist is the artistic director for Serpentine Galleries, London.
