Legendary fetish photographer Eric Kroll is moving out of LA, and is lightening his load before he goes.
from his email to me:
when Man Ray left LA after 10 years he had a yard sale of paintings and other pieces he had made. I am doing the same to raise much needed cash. there are prints by me and by others including Bill Ward and John Willie. I live in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles east of Sunset Junction off Sunset off Micheltornea. These items will be sold at recession prices. It goes on through the 20th of January but the best selection is NOW.
me kroll [at] well [dot] com for info if you’re interested.
I’ve seen his stuff and it’s pretty mindblowing. Not just fetish stuff, not just his own photos.
Oh and do I need to say it? NO KIDS!
Rick Castro’s second monthly Fetish Film Nights is this Friday evening at the Egyptian Theater– but this time, due to the overflow crowd last month for the first FFN in the small Spielberg Theater, he’s moving into the 616-seat Rigler Theater for a screening of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s raunchy classic, Salo, 120 Days of Sodom.
Be prepared, Salo is not for the squeamish or the weak of heart as it tours with cold, in-your-face precision through a deluge of sexual and psychological atrocities rained upon a group of young men and women held hostage in a stunning villa by a group of depraved nobles at the end of WWII. Think sumptuous locales, haute couture costume design and complete sexual madness and kinky abandon.
Castro, owner and curator of Antebellum Gallery, the fetish art emporium on Las Palmas around the corner from the Egyptian, will lead a discussion after the film.
Last month’s Fetish Film Nights screening of Maitresse saw a spirited talk about BDSM culture. This Friday will probably play along the same lines, like another titillating night out at the movies. Bring a date– or even find one there.
Salo, 120 Days of Sodom; Friday Oct. 17th, 7:30 PM; at the Egyptian Theater, 6712 Hollywood Blvd. at Las Palmas, Los Angeles 90028
