Sexploitation

From the sublime to the sexploitative (Coxsoft coined). Today Eleven Fine Art in London opened Jane Hilton: Precious. This is an exhibition of new photos of prostitutes in Nevada, USA, taken in 10 brothels with such titillating titles as Love Ranch North and Shady Lady’s (sic). In 2000 the BBC commissioned Jane to make ten documentary films in Madam Kitty’s Cathouse and the Moonlite Bunnyranch, both in Nevada. (This is how Auntie wastes licence-payers' money.) In 2010 Jane decided to do her own follow-up to the BBC commission, using a plate camera. This exhibition and her photo book Precious is the result. Above is her photo of Sunny Star, Love Ranch North (2012). CLICK for Eleven Fine Art and more of Jane's photos.
