Artist's Statement

Jeremy Kost’s recent work reveals the intensely personal nature of his art. The growing notoriety of the artist’s captivating photographs - of club kids, celebrities, transsexuals, and beautiful young men - issues from his prowess in the New York social scene, a deliberately cultivated capacity, which lies at the core of his creative process. He documents cultural sub-currents, and records fleeting traces of celebrity. Kost uses the camera lens to capture unpolished glimpses of human interaction. Kost presents his Polaroid output unedited, a strategy which, he asserts, “keeps the integrity of the whole moment unfolding before you.” The directness of his medium foils the carefully constructed public identities of his subjects; It also exposes the essential substance of his art, which is not so much about the people he photographs, as it is about his own relation to them.
