Tyrants + Lederhosen

"Mug Shot" (2011)
the Hilton Brothers

28 June 2011

Tyrants and Lederhosen (pub date: Oct 2011)begins with compelling sections of the individual artists' works, and progresses with the interplay of both artists photographs together, which leads into the entire series of Hilton Brothers works, which has been exhibited throughout the world, most notably the Hilton Brothers "one man" show at la Casa Encendida Museum, Madrid (2009) under the direction of Jose Guirao. T and L is also the first- ever published Hilton Brothers complete anthology of editioned Hilton Brothers work from 2004 to 2011.

The Brothers use their cameras as their paintbrush as much as to document; details of shadows and light, suggesting the ordinary as extraordinary. They open a new window on both familiar and unfamiliar worlds. From the Far East to the Middle East, Europe and the Americas, all worlds collide into dramatic dissonance in this seminal photographic document of our time.
