Eric Kroll Arthur's fetish | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it
Arthur was a young man living in a railroad apartment in mid-Manhattan since the 1950s. He was a handsome weight lifter and `companion’ for famous and rich older men. He also incessantly made and collected movies and photos of women with long HAIR! I was fortunate enough to acquire his extensive archive and will exhibit parts of it on Valentine’s weekend 2014 at Exploding View.

His tenacity is rewarded when in 1961 the first television station is founded.

\"Hairstyles\" will be his most known collection, involving almost 1000 different hairstyles that give an image of the African woman. He finds these \"sculptures for a day\" on the street, at a marriage or at work.
