ARTIST: DE KWOK

California based artist and publisher De Kwok presents a selection of images from photo-book LUST TO LOVE.  “The book is an exploration of creating portraits through the usage of masks and items obscuring the model’s faces. One image led to the other and I just followed the thread.” LUST TO LOVE will be available to purchase soon at Dashwood Books.  LTL_stacks

 

My latest book, Lust to Love, is a 2 year project that started with photographing one masked image which led to another and another. I just wanted to follow the thread and see where it would lead me.

When asked: Why Balaclava.Q?

Answer: “I like discovering a group of like-minded artists. Balaclava.Q is a space where queerness can run wild and free. It’s a playful arena where queer artists send signals out into the world. ”
