"Elegantly handsome and acerbically erudite" photographer and visual provocateur Bob Carlos Clarke's current exhibition at London's Eyestorm Gallery is called "Real Love Dolls Never Die", but we're having a hard time distinguishing between fantasy and reality in his haunting and sexy portraits of latex- and lingerie-clad flesh-and-blood models (or are they simulacra?) Maybe we've been staring at our computer screens too long. Excuse us while we take a nap.
