Lost Boys, Slava Mogutin’s first monograph, is a compelling collection of his portraits and landscapes taken over the past ten years—since he was exiled from Russia for “malicious hooliganism with exceptional cynicism and extreme insolence.” Although it was his outspoken gay writing that angered the Soviet authorities, Mogutin’s photographs caused just as much controversy. Provocative yet iconoclastic, his work transcends the conventions of male nude photography, confronting the viewer/voyeur with a raw style and new sensibility. A cross between porn and fashion, pop culture and marginal kink, Lost Boys is a poetic and sometimes raunchy journey into different obsessions and fetishes of the cosmopolitan urban youth culture. Crimean rasta boys, Russian wrestlers and military cadets, German skinheads, and football hooligans are among the subjects of these incendiary but intimate portraits.
