Philip-Lorca diCorcia

Edited by Katharina Dohm, Max Hollein. Text by Katharina Dohm, Geoff Dyer, Christoph Ribbat.

Philip-Lorca diCorcia

The seductive and eerie photography of diCorcia from 1975 to the ongoing East of Eden series

The photography of Philip-Lorca diCorcia achieves a marvelous balance of artifice and the everyday. Over the past three decades, diCorcia has developed a unique and influential style, in which a realistic, almost documentary style of representation is subverted or countered by visibly staged composition. This combination of seemingly opposite qualities endows his images with a mysterious eeriness. In his Hustlers series (1990–1992), diCorcia made portraits of male prostitutes in minutely composed settings, and for Heads (2000–2001)--probably his most famous series--he depicted passersby on the street in New York (who were oblivious to his photographing them) as though they were film stars. Alongside the series Streetwork (1993–1999), Lucky 13 (2004) and A Storybook Life (1975–1999), this volume, published for a major European retrospective and produced in close collaboration with diCorcia, also features works from his new and ongoing East of Eden project.

"Untitled" (2008) is reproduced from Philip-Lorca diCorcia.

Philip-Lorca diCorcia

In Kerber's beautiful new monograph, Philip-Lorca diCorcia is quoted in conversation with Christoph Ribbat: "Sometimes photography gets maligned as being too specific, too literal. But I think it’s a little like putting a bunch of little kids in a room and telling them to explain the same image. They’ll all come up with something different. The problem, simply stated, is: how do you make something that has a half-life that is longer than yours? So you’re sitting with something, living with something, looking at something, and it doesn’t give itself up that quickly. And maybe never will. I think that’s the big challenge. And it’s especially difficult in a medium as literal as photography. But it’s kind of worth the hassle… sometimes." Sylmar, California (2008), from the "East of Eden" series, is reproduced from Philip-Lorca diCorcia. continue to blog
