"Here is a visual feast in the tradition of 1990s club kids. See performance artists JoJo Baby and Sal-E use their bodies as canvases to become inspired and whimsical conceptual characters, executed with expert skill using original, theatrical makeup and costumes. In more than 100 portraits, photographer Bernard Colbert rigorously captures these two performance artists in genius moments as psychedelic Hindi gods, comic book villains, fantastical creatures, astronauts, and much, much more. Colbert's stunning portraits document these delightful transformations over a five-year period and are the same body of work featured in the Clive Barker documentary titled JoJo Baby. Through Colbert's collaboration with JoJo and Sal, viewers can experience a front row seat to an ongoing show which has been entertaining club goers in Chicago for two decades. This is a portfolio for the visually adventuress and fans of true creative vision."
