Love ain’t always about butterflies and rainbows. Sometimes it’s also about aggression and malice.
In her new book, entitled Visceral, creative director Amy Hood illustrates the dark side of love perfectly with a collection of literary pieces and photographic works. Using a Hitchcock-like aesthetic, Hood’s black-and-white erotic portraits tell sinister stories of love, lust, and infatuation.
“Visceral examines the often unconventional reality of intimate psychology and human interrelations, our fascination with feeling in dark extremity and the evocation of our deepest emotions,” wrote Hood.
The book includes pieces written by John Paul Pryor, Lydia Lunch, and Kate Messinger, as well as photographs taken by Bill Brown, David Bellemere, Enga Purevjav, Michael Donovan, Pola Esther, Sante D’Orazio, and Kirsten Bode.
