Anthony and Cleopatra – Cesar Lechowick

Cesar Lechowick’s series Anthony and Cleopatra captures a wide range of domestic moments in a couple’s life.

Cesar supplied me with the following information about the series:
Anthony and Cleopatra is a photographer’s daydream of a threesome that manifest as a vision of bourgeois dystopia.  The series of portraits and still lifes depict the intimacies and idiosyncrasies of a threesome clinging to the facade of American success within a culture of decline.  Sources for the body of work come from film, photography and cuts from contemporary visual culture.  Literary, cinematic, biblical and high art references interact in a surreal, day-mare blending of classic and pop.  Allusions to Fitzgerald’s The Beautiful and Damned, Cassevettes’ Woman Under the Influence, and the Classical figure in art history blend to produce anachronistic images that conflate temporality with the photographer’s subconscious.
