Jimmy DeSana: Suburban

"These photographs could have been taken in a club but were not," Elizabeth Sussman writes in Aperture's phenomenal Jimmy De Sana: Suburban. "This is private, domestic space—generically, the interior spaces of any suburb: bathroom, kitchen, living room, garage. Danger, near-death moments, erotic highs are all close to home, sometimes in the form of do-it-yourself violence: the gas from the car can asphyxiate you; the gas from the stove can amplify a colossal balloon attached to a penis. Collectively, in these images the focus, front and center, is the body. DeSana never deviates from an emphasis on the body and the full spectrum of pain to pleasure. He is a theatrical producer on a small scale, a miniaturist of anxiety, eroticism and humor." Sussman will appear on a DeSana panel with Paula Greif, Laurie Simmons and William J. Simmons, moderated by Dan Nadel, Tuesday, November 3 at Aperture Foundation.
