sex. drugs. [and rock n roll]

"i have always had the urge to investigate people through the simplicity of the artifacts that make up their lives," said photographer henry leutwyler. 

upon my discovery of henry leutwyler, i was immediately drawn to his art... and perhaps a bit uncomfortably [might i add]. to see such detailed images belonging to such iconic figures, i wasn't sure if i was doing something illegal. but i guess that's what leutwyler does. he gets personal with the artifacts, whereby they seem almost lifelike. once belonging to figures merely recognized by these exact material objects.
