RICK CASTRO “Fetish King: Seminal Photographs 1986 – 2019” curated by Ruben Esparza

The artist’s sex positive imagery is darkly erotic, elegant, and at times, sinister. A powerful and imaginative figure that emerged in the Los Angeles underground during the late '80s, Rick Castro has been dubbed “the fetish king”. His photographs are characterized by potent and visceral tableaux, tinged with sadomasochism, leather and sexual pleasure. From the artist’s fetishizing of Tony Ward in the '80s, to capturing moments, places and the people of the underground scene in Los Angeles nightlife in the '90s and '00s, he continues his pictorial career and fascination with lust, desire and kink producing elegant portraiture of celebrated artists and the demi-monde.

On view through 27th April by appointment

Castro's first solo was at A Different Light Bookstore in Silver Lake, California, in 1988. Over the decades he has had numerous international exhibitions. Notable films includes his short films of hustler interviews in 1994 that inspired Bruce LaBruce to make the film «Hustler White» in 1996, in which he was co-director/writer. The film garnered great success internationally and is listed by the «Los Angeles Times» as one of the top 100 underground films of the 20th century. Castro also directed a documentary for MTV called «Plushies & Furries» in 2001, a film which focused on the furry communities.
