TEXTISM

I don’t even like leather, and own barely anything made of it. I proffer my two pair of vegan Docs the way a Vermont private school seats its lone black student at the front of the class during state inspections.

Nonetheless, Skye Joseph Bartlett (no relation), who, self-evidently, hails from Adelaide, gives us the fetish photographs of the year.

One photo: Man in full leather jacket and chaps (with blue codpiece and tie), with pup hood

Runner-up

Neil Z. Page, whose name I can only ever hear as “Neilzee Page.”

Man with full-sleeve right-arm tattoo holds near-fetal position against metallized “2018” backdrop

To his credit, Page produced a few versions of this fantastical photo-illustration. Its classic pose, continuously re-attempted since “Power House Mechanic,” is barely possible to get right.

There was a time I was so well versed in the history of photography I could have taught a course.
