Hustlers by Philip-Lorca diCorcia
Between 1990 and 1992, Philip-Lorca diCorcia’s first solo exhibition. The show, entitled “Strangers” was accompanied by a museum catalog. Twenty years later, steidldangin publishes the series in its entirety. Hustlers is an empathetic yet melancholic poem of the Hollywood dream gone wrong, prescribing to the heavily-staged pictorialism and happenstance of street casting for which diCorcia is most widely recognized.
