Romulo Sans: a name you need to know. Veteran fashion photographer, art director, and bonafide enfant terrible, his work brings together life, luxury, and beauty, candidly exposing darker cultural insights so thrillingly it will leave you wanting more. Crushed, on view now at White Box Gallery, manages to do just that, vividly juxtaposing fashion and politics for Sans’ debut New York show. Sans has snapped his subjects, mainly women, in high contrast, stylishly subverting and politicizing iconography both old and new. McDonald’s, The Virgin Mary, Guns, Old Glory, and the Crucifixion all testify to his often guerrilla lens; he gives former client Chanel the extra special treatment. Barcelona-born Sans, who now splits his time between Spain and New York, spent over a decade in Cuba refining his aesthetic before subsequently getting the boot (the Government was less than thrilled by Sans’ views). Luckily, Crushed is pure New York: rebellious, charged, and as David Bailey has said of Sans, fucking strong.
