Much like Alfred Steiglietz and Georgia O’Keefe, Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Curious George and The Man in the Yellow Hat, Athena and Cyrus’s powerful relationship has gravely impacted the nature of their independent work. They have influenced one another, while clearly developing their own personal styles and professional directions. Seeing the two photographers’ work braided together in this video is both playful and sophisticated. As viewers we are able to distinguish much about the makers and sense the heart-felt connection of their partnership.
