    About The Work

    Detox depicts a drag queen in a space-age get-up on a dilapidated sidewalk in Los Angeles. In her right hand, she holds a plastic figurine of Hulk Hogan on a string, adding an element of butch to the bright, bubble-gum pink of the queen's hair, lips, and dress. On the right, Kost, always the invisible voyeur, appears as a reflection in the window of the storefront, his face obscured by the flash of his camera. Although the image is taken in daylight, the title seems to suggest that the figure (and Kost himself) is coming down from a long, charged night.

    Detox is an image from Kost's series Boulevard of Broken Dreams, which depicts the underbelly of Hollywood Boulevard, a location littered with strip malls and porn shops that belie the street name's association with glamour and stardom.
