In this book, the photographer Karim Konrad approaches his images with an insouciance that is both hyperkinetic and unapologetic. Easter eggs, confectionary doughnuts and a dildo share space in his staged productions of his model Rocco, while model Johannes cuddles alongside a photograph of Greta Garbo and a mirrored disco ball while he wears a pair of striped suspenders. Colored-candy letters intended for a birthday cake are affixed to model Mario, making him an even tastier treat than he is already. Karim’s model Josh finds himself in high heels, peering into the work of retro physique photographer Champion, while model Ivo surrenders himself in a black sleep mask, a jockstrap and orange rubber gloves. Karim’s visual assault on the senses is overwhelming, and his models are ripe with their youth and their earthy sensuality. The artist’s orgy of color explodes with energy, pushing the viewer ever closer to a mental climax as he turns each page of this collection by this newcomer.
