Fab Read: Marilyn Minter

I think it's safe to judge a book by its cover in the case of Marilyn Minter's debut book, $38. In her own way photographer and painter Marilyn Minter sees through material possessions; she sees them as a canvas for splattering such items with mud and sweat. Confused? She puts it, "So many images we see every day are fake looking - if there's any dirt at all, it looks like it's been put on with tweezers."

She opens our eyes to the fakeness of all the glamorama, which she has discovered through a career spanning nearly 40 years. Today her paintings and, increasingly, her photography, expose the ultimate failure of fashion and glamour to hide either our flaws or the dirty underside of human beauty. Sounds like some intriguing eye candy - who says fashion isn't heavy?
