Image of the Day

Les Krims: Two Beauticians with Strange Hairstyles Pretending to be Interested in Science, Buffalo, New York, 1978.

When I first heard about Krims from Seattle-based photographer Kyle Johnson, very little of Krims' work was on the web, and his books were (and remain) extremely hard to come by. Now he has re-launched a website with a cross-section of mostly conceptual work from the '60s, '70s, and '80s, and an interview by Ken Miller (Tokion). I am still holding out hope for finding some of the books but this is a great reminder.

Visit leskrims.com for more info and images (including prints available for purchase).
