Sean DuFrene - Conceptual work
Sean DuFrene is a (rather) young American photographer belonging to a very US-typical visual movement that we could called hyperrealistic-fashion-perverted that was so trendy in the eighties and that I don't like much, but he creates strong and subversive impact when he mixes childhood world and contemporary hypersexual pin-up universe. He could go further but anyway, it's an interesting visual clash. I'm not sure there's any real critical approach in these images, but after all who cares, it's the viewer that can subvert the image and gives it a political and cultural meaning. His site here.
