Butter is a photographic piece from the Oxycontin Blues story by the artist Jean Malek.
In the media, portrayals of addiction range from the harrowing to the quasi-romantic. But when it comes to white, upper-middle class women, it’s become a trope to aestheticize their experience as nihilistic glamour. Referencing mainstream cinema and fashion photography, Malek’s images poke fun at this trend.These darkly seductive works reveal the sociological undercurrents of what appears to be pure style, and raises questions about the role photography plays as a political tool.
