PHOTOGRAPHY: Mind Melding With Vulcan Pinups

Published on .

The Sound of Junk Music
In conjunction with last week's Art Basel Miami Beach fest (see www.artbasel.com), a show by New York-based photographer Fred George, descriptively titled "Vulcan Girls: Off-World Women Clad in Vintage Electronics," is running at Miami's Fache Gallery through Dec. 31. The concept, in the words of George: "Photographed at the Vulcan junkyard in Stamford, Conn., the exhibition represents the culmination of years of contemplation and shooting. In 13 super-sized dura-transparencies in stainless steel frames, electronic detritus from the Vulcan junkyard is incorporated into the models' costumes. Juxtaposing female figures with mechanical forms creates a techno-cyber feel of futuristic fashions." No vacuum tube top jokes, please. In the PDF is also a shot of the photographer making the Miami scene, as well as a gallery view. See www.fredgeorge.com and www.vulcangirls.com for more.
