A Series of Rephotographs by Tomas Clarkson
What happens when the roles are reversed in erotic photography and what was once the mundane and unimportant background becomes the focus? This is what the series "American Beauty" aims to achieve. Through removing the erotic nature of the image (different centrefolds from classic playboy magazines in the 1980's) in an attempt to desexualise it, a series of still lifes and landscape images are created, where the image is reappropriated and the erotic is hinted at.
