The Douglas Brothers

  • CountryUnited Kingdom
  • Established1989


The Douglas Brothers work at the threshold of art and commercial photography. For instance, their images of unknown young boxers taken in Miami and Havana set up an uneasy link between classical ideals of beauty, racism and national identity. The ambiguity of the sensation is further problematized by the implication of the homoeroticism of their subjects. These works challenge heterosexuality as a normative structure via the subject-object relation as it is defined in capitalist societies.
