Phillip Toledano – Phonesex
Toledano has photographed nearly thirty phonesex operators in the intimate setting of their own homes, a glimpse into the reality of a fantasy created by the operator’s voice and the caller’s imagination. Accompanying every portrait is a text written by the operator on some aspect of his or her experience. Whether touching, humorous, or disturbing, every operator’s point of view is compelling.
“There is a contract that exists between phonesex operators and the people who call. It is a contract of self-delusion. The caller agrees to pretend that he (or she) is calling a young, beautiful girl, and the phonesex operator willingly plays the part. Phonesex reveals the truth. It pulls back the veil to reveal the expected, and the unexpected, all at once.” — Phillip Toledano
