“Getting into Face: 52 Mondays Featuring JoJo Baby and Sal-E”
100 high-octane portraits of performance artists JoJo Baby and Sal-E. Displaying 5 years of JoJo and Sal's transformations, working in the tradition of "club kids". Each image exemplifies makeup and theatrical costuming at the highest echelon of creativity.
Atglen P.A. — Here is a visual feast in the tradition of 1990s club kids. See performance artists JoJo Baby and Sal-E use their bodies as canvases to become inspired and whimsical conceptual characters, executed with expert skill using original, theatrical makeup and costumes. In more than 100 portraits, photographer Bernard Colbert rigorously captures these two performance artists in genius moments as psychedelic Hindi gods, comic book villains, fantastical creatures, astronauts, and much much more. Colbert’s stunning portraits document these delightful transformations over a five-year period and are the same body of work featured in the Clive Barker documentary titled JoJo Baby. Through Colbert’s collaboration with JoJo and Sal, viewers can experience a front row seat to an ongoing show which has been entertaining club goers in Chicago for two decades. This is a portfolio for the visually adventuress and fans of true creative vision.
Bernard Colbert is a commercial photographer whose work encompasses portraits, fashion, advertising, and fine-art photography. Bernard’s work has been featured in numerous periodicals and solo exhibitions.
