Do you ever feel nostalgic for your rebellious adolescence? Those were sweet years, filled with salicylic acid, cheap beer, and unabashed sexual experimentation (remember Makeoutclub.com, anyone?). If you're experiencing a bit of the Peter Pan syndrome, you'll most likely feel an affinity for the cheerful, whimsical images in Kathy Lo's latest book, Kiss (X). The 24-year-old fashion photographer was inspired to create a modern depiction of German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's tragic play Faust. "The main character, Aris, was bored with his life and decided to call on the devil, Erik [the ginger-haired boy]," she explains. "In the end, he sold his soul to the devil in order to get the girl of his dreams, Ashley Smith." Published by Shizen Books, the limited-edition collection of 150 printed copies arrives at Opening Ceremony and Dashwood Books this weekend. You can also purchase a copy online here.
