London-based photographer Valerie Phillips’ 2022 book "Dye your hair with Kool-Aid” is an eclectic scrap-book like piece of youth energy.
Working with various models, some of whom have previously appeared in Phillips’ other books, Phillips offers energetic collages of photographs, stickers, and cut-out images. Exuding attitude and ingenuity, "Dye your hair with Kool-Aid” captivates with creative fashion combinations, pleasant but active colors and youthful energy.
“When I was a kid it was mainly pictures of animals cut out of magazines, glued to colourful pieces of paper.
Somehow they always ended up stapled together in a book format.
I’ve always loved making books – scrap books, sticker books, photographic books, zines, and now
‘Dye Your Hair With Kool-Aid’ – a cauldron of these elements mixed into one deluxe permanent pop home.”
