Even tarantulas, ants, and pudgy babies’ feet look elegant when portrayed by the celebrated Japanese photographer Hiro, who emigrated to the United States and the world of high fashion in the 1950s. Sometimes filled with glossy elegance (cherry red toenails, nudes as sleek as race cars) and celebrities (the Rolling Stones and Sean Penn), and occasionally with the surreal (a Daliesque fried egg in the middle of a landscape), Hiro’s colorful work is always dripping with an almost tangible sensuality.
