This large-scale image from Brandon Herman's 2008 series "My Vacation with a Kidnapper" references his childhood fantasy/fear of being kidnapped and given a new identity. In his fantasy, the kidnapper would raise him in an extravagant lifestyle, exemplified by the young male nude in bunny glasses standing in a jacuzzi. Untitled (Bunny Glasses)" is photographed with the cynicism and whimsy that characterize the artist's best-known work.
