Photographer Jeremy Kost has developed a signature style with his romantic, multiple-exposure Polaroids of dreamy male nudes. Coinciding with the launch of his latest monograph, Fractured (out on October 30), the artist has partnered with Calvin Klein Collection for a special art installation at the brand's Madison Avenue flagship store, in New York City.
A selection of photographs from Fractured are displayed in the windows facing 60th Street, and inside the store, on the men's floor. An exclusive edition of Kost's book, entitled Fractured: Jeremy Kost for Calvin Klein Collection, is also available for purchase at the store.
"After two-and-half years of making this body of work, I couldn't be more honored to celebrate Fractured's release with an exclusive edition and presentation of artwork at Calvin Klein Collection's Madison Avenue store," said Kost. "The brand has such a rich history of beauty, elegance, sophistication, and unabashed sensuality, which embodies everything I hope people perceive in the new book."
In addition, all of the artwork shown at Calvin Klein will be available for purchase through online auction house, Paddle8, starting October 13. A portion of the proceeds will go towards ACRIA, a leading research and education organization working to help people with HIV and AIDS live longer, healthier lives.
