This event has ended.

Casey Kaplan presents a new series of photographs by Jeff Burton, Portraits, an inclusive look at his career photographing actors, models, filmmakers, and other diverse figures, including: Gore Vidal, Sasha Grey, Kenneth Anger, Danica Patrick, Vincent Gallo, Dasha Zhukova, and Morrissey.
Burton’s artwork continues to derive from his profession as a photographer. Previously, shooting stills in the adult film industry, Burton investigated its stage through a voyeuristic point of view. His works portrayed nuances between reality and fantasy, narrating the underlying drives of Los Angeles’ cultural environment, in an industry fabricating desires and expectations. Burton’s recent assignments, in such fields as fashion and celebrity portraiture, reveal that these contexts run on the same drives as the adult film industry. The stories his new works tell expand into a larger cultural arena, yet his investigations remain the psychosexual, the meeting of art and commerciality, and the rawness and refinement of physical desire and lust.
