Being a man with a camera is increasingly a loaded profession. We sat down with artist Richard Kern—no stranger to transgression—to discuss the difference between the male and female gaze, Petra Collins, art trolls, and much more. By Chloe Sariego. Illustration of Kern by Maggie Dunlap.
Maggie Dunlap is one of my favorite young art bitches. Her work combines girly cuteness with dark, Marilyn Manson-ey gothness, and sexy S&M. She’s 19, and when she’s not embroidering ball-gags she spends her time studying at New York’s School of Visual Arts. Maggie recently told i-D mag, “Feminist theory, and attempting to dissect my own experiences within the confines of girlhood, is a central theme in my work.” Oh, and I really, really want a pair of her home-made undies.
