Dick 999 published by RVB Books is a collection of anonymous photographs which Photography feature – Tiane Doan na Champassak found posted on the blogs and websites of the Indian subcontinent’s exhibitionists and swingers. He collected the images posted by men in which we see their wives or partners exposed but in which the men took great care to cover up with Photoshop any clues as to their own identity. The artist analysed and extracted the pictures and drawings, which exhibitionists use to cover themselves, and he presented those on their own, without context. By doing so he demonstrated the ambiguity of what is recovered and what is masked, while simultaneously revealing the diversity of motifs and shapes the extracted images can take.
