About this deal

I’m not interested in these images as burlesque or fetish ephemera,” Rhody notes. “Taken out of their context after 70 years, they’re not even that pornographic. No more-so than your average television commercial.” Out-of-context is precisely where Rhody finds their charm. His curatorial tendencies lean toward the found photographic object; the re-contextualized, or appropriated image. Through his production company Nutrix Co. (and later also Mutrix Corp), Klaw also published and distributed illustrated adventure/bondage serials by fetish artists Eric Stanton, Gene Bilbrew, Adolfo Ruiz and others.
