I think people need to take a step back from being visually reactionary and try think a little critically about the point the mixed race (per his interviews) artist is trying to make on race. All of the women are White because he’s directly addressing not just the issue of women being seen as objects (which applies to women of all races… probably even more so to women of color), but the way some Black men view White women as nothing more than trophies to symbolize status. Yes. Its a “fetish”, but he is making a statement about the “fetish”. That seems to be a theme with him… ie the White power milk. Addressing the subconscious buying into the idea of White supremacy. So its clearly a statement about race… that doesn’t make it racist. It is weird and creepy and uncomfortable to look at because it is SATIRE that uses exaggerated images to point out how ridiculous something in society is. I will say that his choice of a medium is indeed questionable at best, but it has garnered a lot of attention which is probably the point. I think there is also a point to be made for the women who respond to a craiglist posting like this or request to participate in such “art”. He purposefully chose to post his communications with these women along with the pictures he took….likely to make a complementary point. You get a sense of low self esteem and desperation from these women asking to lay naked on a strange man’s shoulders from a craigslist posting. I’m sure he has a lot of similar texts, but he chose to post one of a woman who even asks if she is “too fat” to participate (its not a VS shoot…its a guy using his iphone to post pictures on Instagram). You also get the sense that they too may also be buying into this “white women as status scarfs” as a source of self esteem where it is otherwise lacking. So you have this person who upholds another not as a full human being, but as an idea of status and then the recipient of these ideas is really someone who thinks very lowly of herself so she latches on to this false idea. I think his “art” is an uncomfortable comment on the irony of a very race specific realm of interactions/relationships.
