Charlie White’s Monsters

I was looking through a magazine last week sometime and came across an article about Charlie White’s new book, Monsters. The book is a culmination of his work over the last decade, collecting images from his Joshua series, photos of kids interacting with creepy ass child puppets, and his newest series, Everything is American.
I personally love Charlie’s work, I’ve always thought his images were so amazing. The second image above is entitled ‘Champion’, and is absolutely stunning to me. I love that the figure appears to be in an art museum, but that they’re very much alive and real at the same time. Mixing classical posing with modern day American brutality and gore.

Also, Wired has a pretty cool interview with White from 2004. In it he talks about how he went about creating some of the images that are in his book.
