The enduring impression I had that I’d made pretty acceptable use of my BA time has been shattered by Chloe Newman and Rebecca Scheinberg’s high production, hyper-real photographic analyses of consumer culture. Having graduated from BA Photography at LCC last summer, Chloe and Rebecca’s work holds both a consistent quality and an interest in fragmented narratives of order, chaos and commodity value.
This project, Black Tropicana, is a series of photographs inspired by pop culture, 70s glam disco and artificial worlds. The work critiques the shallow, enticing paradise of sickly sweet poolside Mai-Tais and dining on lobster straight off your golden satin sheets. Sounds like hell.
