PRAISE AND REVIEWS
T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Viewfinder
In many of the images, the function of lipstick is ambiguous: Whether it works as a tool to empower women or to reinforce the male gaze is up to the artist’s — and the viewer’s — interpretation.
Lipstick leaves its mark on collars, cigarettes, skin, napkins and glasses, and it's left its mark on culture.

Mickalene Thomas' 2008 "Portrait of Qusuquzah" (reproduced here), Juergen Teller's 2004 nude self-portrait with cigarette and lipstick, Stephen Shore's 1973 photograph of a Palm Beach matron in feather boa, and Linder's 1977 photo collage of a woman with an iron for a head and smiling, lipsticked mouths for nipples, are just a few of the iconic and provocative images collected in Damiani's new compendium of mouthy, lipsticky art photographs. "Why is it that lipstick—and by extension lips themselves—have written so many stories," Jérôme Sans and Marla Hamburg Kennedy ask in their Introduction. "Lipstick is ultimately an evocative or provocative sociocultural aspect of a situation, a way to tell a story without voice, but with a taste that lingers."

Ryan McGinley's 2013 photograph "Susannah (Swampsticks)" is reproduced from Lipstick Flavor, edited by Jérôme Sans and Marla Hamburg Kennedy and published by Damiani. Several years in the making, this fashionable compendium of contemporary art photographs with lips or lipstick front and center features work by more than 30 artists, including Nobuyoshi Araki, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Inez & Vinoodh, Catherine Opie, Laurie Simmons, Alex Prager and Martin Parr - to name just a few. "Lipstick Flavor is an echo of the famous book by Greil Marcus, Lipstick Traces, about the punk generation in London at the end of the 70s," the editors write, "an aesthetic created as a rebellion against the arts and the society of the past, against the institution of good taste."
