The artist Venfield 8 is back with one of his most daring pieces yet — one might even call it a prime cut!
Cannibal Culture is a new oversized portfolio that isn't a book and isn't a magazine but IS highly provocative and collectible. In the debut issue, there is a theme that will make your mouth water — or turn your stomach! Either way, it's fantastic work.
There are only 200 signed and numbered copies out there — get yours for $30 (shipping is free to anywhere in the world) at Venfield8.com.
I've got a full review of The Last Resort — a gripping doc about the photography of Andy Sweet and Gary Monroe — over at Gr8erDays, and I encourage you to read it and seek out the film.
