bad boy, 2017

 

Bad Boy is the debut photo book by New York artist Megan Christiansen.

This vividly personal self portrait series explores the ambiguous dynamic between the artist and men who have walked through her first three years inhabiting New York City, each possessing a unique quality that has infatuated the artist.

Anonymous, unedited text, written only by men with whom she has been romantically involved shifts the power between artist and subject. This ambiguity lends the audience authority to interpret and appreciate the nature of these relationships.

She will only give you enough to say you know her. Not enough to say what you know.
