Andi Galdi Vinko is not interested in beauty. In a culture where beauty is posited as the be-all, end-all, this might seem a little strange. One look at the Hungarian photographer's work, however, will reveal her propensity for perversity.

There is no doubt that Vinko's photographs are a little unsettling; but, beyond that, they are imbued with an impulsive quality. There is nothing staged about any of her images, as wild or improbable as they might seem -- she's simply making things up as she goes along.

Vinko's portfolio includes shots of a naked man clutching a tree, a woman in a loud, leopard-print fur coat browsing an overwhelming supermarket selection, an unnerving fellow and his taxidermy collection and the chilling stare of a wild-haired man.
