Philip Toledano: Mad Genius

I met Mr. Toledano at a shi-shi event a couple of years ago. We wore similar outfits and shared an accent. I remember being embarrassed that I didn't know his work at the time, which I discovered to be bloody clever.

Since then, he put out the moving and beautiful "Days With My Father", an incredibly personal project to which we can all relate. Then came the quite brilliant 'Kim Jong Phil' "It occurred to me that being an artist is a great deal like being a dictator." and 'A New Kind of Beauty' "Beauty has always been a currency, and now that we finally have the technological means to mint our own, what choices do we make?" and now he's further along his glittery path to world domination. Toledano is a gift that keeps on giving, for want of an appropriately terrible cliché.
