There is little that can not be turned into a fetish, which explains the diversity of the world of fetishists. Laurent Muschel explored their meeting points on a number of continents, for his Fetish Ballad series. His severely composed, raw black and white pictures reveal the obsessions with latex and leather, tattoos and bonds, just to mention a few; at the same time, they never appear as a denunciation of practices that are often considered ‘deviant’. Muschel points to the old master of bondage photography, Rick Castro, who in a recent interview with Dazed magazine said, “Fetish is the exploration of sex as art (…). I feel that the 21st century is all about fetish.” In the spring of 2016 Verlag Kettler will publish Fetish Ballad as a book with the same title; Muschel signed the book project under his pseudonym MagLau.

Laurent Muschel

Born in Strasbourg in 1968, Muschel lives and works in Brussels. He became known thanks to Blackitude, his series of photos of black women in front of black backdrops. In his Back to the Museum series, he staged an ‘invisible dialogue’ between viewers and works of art. Blackitude and Back to the Museum appeared as solo exhibitions at the Pascal Polar Gallery in Brussels in 2010 and 2013.
