Asher Moss Gives Us a Heavy Dose of Nostalgia with ‘Miss Lonely Vol. 1’

+

BULLETT favorite, Asher Moss, is at it again. To celebrate the release of his first book, Miss Lonely Vol. 1, the L.A.-based photographer is taking his show on the road—literally. This summer, Asher will be bringing a pop-up exhibit showcasing photos from the book across the U.S., starting in Austin, Texas, earlier this week. Like all of his work, Miss Lonely Vol. 1 captures an ease that leaves you wondering if the photos were taken in 1970. Though all of his subjects are nude, the images never feel exploitative or overly sexy—like a 1960s Playboy with all cool, but none of the crass. Featuring different subjects from across the country, Miss Lonely Vol. 1 reads like a visual treatise on the American Dream, each image filled with hope and nostalgia. With his photos, Asher takes you out of the despair of our current reality, and into the escape of his ideal world. In the age of Trump, that’s exactly what we need.

See the photos in person and receive your own copy of Miss Lonely Vol. 1 at one of his pop-up events this year brought to you by long-time partner Hochstadter’s Slow & Low. Limited prints will be on exhibit along with live entertainment, complimentary whiskey cocktails and a few surprises.
