The Hilton Brothers: Tyrants + Lederhosen featuring Nicola Formichetti
Nicola Formichetti is best know as Thierry Mugler’s creative director and Lady Gaga’s stylist, but in a twist of fate, he stepped to the forefront, as he allowed Christopher Makos and Paul Solberg, collectively The Hilton Brothers, to take intimate portraits of him. “The Hilton Brothers: Tyrants + Lederhosen” at the Christopher Henry Gallery in Manhattan fill feature the collaborative effort between the three men in what will certainly be a provocative evening. In addition to the Tyrants + Lederhosen exhibition, the Hilton Brothers have a new book by the same name. The self-described “photo-anthropologists” have packed their artistic travelogue with shots from their globe-trotting travels over the past eight years. Solberg’s 2008 shot of the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei in his Beijing studio is among the more indelible images in the Tyrants + Lederhosen show and book.
