Not often does a photographer’s entire back-catalogue of images hit you harder in the face than that of Dana Lixenberg’s. We were bewitched by her work just by the image of the pink curtain flying out into a garden in her “Set Amsterdam” series, but to find out that she has taken some of the most extraordinary portraits of people ranging from Tupac to Taryn Simon to Biggie Smalls is just phenomenal. The Michelangelo-esque shot of P Diddy that captures him sprawled in a fancy hotel, God-like, surrounded by old school mobile phones and remote controls is perhaps one of the best celebrity photographs I have ever come across.
With aesthetics that are almost the visual love-child of Hitchock and Lynch, Dana’s images are vivid to the point of terrifying.
