GERARD O’CONNOR & MARC WASIAK
The Vivien Story, I'll make you famous baby. Hollywood stars and their stage mothers, why don't you sing for us darling. Sing for your tuppence SUGAR – Dance Darling Dance. The chameleon Vivien St James shines as the star of this series. We liked the idea of the driven star and the transsexual, yet it all began with our early obsession with beauty and glamour. We are interested in the notion of celebrity and how it originates within the domestic sphere. Like so many emerging artists, fashion designers, stars or drag queens who begin in front of the husqvarna, home is our beginning.
Gerard (photographer) and Marc (stylist) have been working in collaboration with Harry Rekas (retoucher for Large Magazine) for nearly ten years. They work predominantly in the commercial fashion industry, but also collaborate on independent photographic art projects.
