KATRINA DEL MAR PRESS

“Katrina Del Mar has been active in underground film, photography and erotic fiction for two decades, and her vision is as transcendent as it is transgressive. In her first major solo gallery exhibition in New York at the always adventurous alternative space Participant Inc. through February 17, Del Mar weaves her aesthetic obsessions into an expansive visual tableau.” – Carlo McCormick, Photograph Magazine

BME.freeq.com “Soft Toy Department”

“… it is barely possible to describe The Soft Toy Department’s sense of synchronicity a week later in encountering the mythic Kembra Pfahler in person — at the Greenwich Village nightclub Life, to witness the unveiling of photo phenom Katrina del Mar’s latest exhibit American Toughie. Here, del Mar’s probing lens and lovingly manipulated prints pay unflinching homage to the polymorphic preversity of today’s rough-trade urban youth.” -Mark Kramer

PAPER Magazine
XXX Zine“Dr. Ducky DooLittle and Katrina del Mar are back with one of their sauciest books to date. Who Touched My Monkey? is a tale of heart wringing deceit, steamy wheelchair bondage, spankable ruffled panties and stolen sock monkeys.”
