‘We always see sex from the man’s view’: Cammie Toloui, the peep show performer who peeped back

Turning her camera on her customers, the sex worker and photojournalist exposed the male gaze to itself – and opened up a world of shame and desire“As a rebellious preteen, I sat down and made a list of my life goals,” writes Cammie Toloui in her photobook 5 Dollars for 3 Minutes. “It was pretty simple: 1. Sex. 2. Drugs. 3. Rock’n’roll.”Born in the San Francisco Bay Area in the Summer of Love, Toloui was in the right place to hit these targets, and by 1990 was a member of a feminist punk band, ...

After visiting Somerset Lavender Farm to catch the sun peeking over the purple blossoms, the 40-year-old from Bristol uploaded the results to both Instagram and Twitter.

On impulse I decided to make a trip to the Orsay Museum. It was fairly full but I don’t know if they were tourists or locals. It was nice to see the Impressionists again. The Statue of Liberty is there to greet you. There is an exhibit about the physical world going on right now. This is a stuffed elephant which was once in a Paris zoo. The clock is always great to see. Sculpture by Degas. Degas loved painting those ballerinas. That night there were firew...

"People sometimes send us pieces that were deliberately made to be bad, and you can usually see right through that. It's fake bad art, and it shows."

Said Louise Sacco, the permanent acting interim director of the Museum of Bad Art, quoted in "Treasures from the Museum of Bad Art" (CBS). The article is from 2015. Some readers will know why I'm thinking about it today.Click through and scroll to see what sort of badness is museum-worthy. It must be "sincere and original, and something went wrong in a way that's interesting." I laughed a lot looking at these pictures — hardest at "President Kennedy Eating Ice Cream": It's obvious what went wro...

More Carnavalet

More photos of my visit to the Carnavalet Museum, home of the history of Paris. A look out a window at the newly replanted garden below. Maybe I need a musuc room with yellow walls too. Wooden wall art. An ornate bed for a royal baby. A whole room was painted in this fashion. There is the entire interior of a jewlry shop there done in the Art Deco style designed by Muscha, including, somehow, the gorgeous mosaic floor. A lovely fireplace too. ...

"Throughout most of the ’60s and ’70s, [Brigid Berlin] dragged her Polaroid 360 and a bulky cassette recorder everywhere, though she once said, 'No picture ever mattered, it was the clicking and pulling out that I loved.'"

"Running out of film, she insisted, was worse than running out of speed. Warhol became equally addicted to documentation and, though his pictures became more well known, hers are arguably as revelatory, often the product of double exposures and lighting both flat and vivid, and featuring such friends as Lou Reed, Roy Lichtenstein, Dennis Hopper and Cy Twombly.... Her recordings — there are more than 1,000 hours of tape... — range from the mundane (chatter about her near-constant doctors’ appoint...

Old Friends

The day the Louvre Museum was due to open I got online and got a ticket to wander around again. It was so great to be there once more. They limit the number of people who can enter so it wasn’t very crowded. The lobby. Mercury. A fovorite room. pretty statue. Winged Victory still in the same place. Ah, Mona! I rather like this one too. A few paintings that I like are moved or on loan I guess.

I went for a walk on Promenade Planteé in our old neighborhood. It was a really good place to enjoy Spring. It is found on top of this row of shops which once was used for wine storage. There is a lot of art in the shops including a bear skin made of feathers. This church looks especially great against the sky. There were tulips everywhere. Even more tulips. Some fun art.
