Bling Bling Baby!
Glitz, Glamour, Grotesque: The Art Of Exaggeration
More is better: Hatje-Cantz’s new publication, Bling Bling Baby!, celebrates artifice and isn’t afraid of camp. In more than one hundred works, thirty-three photographers explore the boundaries between art and cliché. It’s colorful, it’s garish, it’s weird, and one thing is certain: “In bling we trust!”
