Over the past two decades, the exiled Russian artist Slava Mogutin has gained international acclaim for his gritty, candid portrayal of disaffected youth and documentation of alternative urban subcultures, as well as his writings, multimedia work, and political activism. Bros & Brosephines is a survey of Mogutin’s studio and fashion photography, commissioned portraits, and previously unpublished images.
From his early raw analog snapshots to elaborate compositions, sets, and post-production, the book offers Mogutin’s signature explosive blend of art, fashion, and fetish, transcending and dissecting the conventional notions of beauty and masculinity.
The monograph also features Mogutin’s collaborations with fellow artists, including Brian Kenny, Gio Black Peter, Andrey Bartenev, Asher Levine, Martin Elmasflaco, Sebastien Meunier, François Sagat, Jan Wandrag, and many more.
