Touted as a “photographic child prodigy”, Indira Cesarine’s first solo exhibition was at the age of 16 at the Paul Mellon Arts Center. By the time she graduated high school she had exhibited 4 one-woman shows of her photographic work. While finishing a triple major in Art History, French Literature and Women’s Studies at Columbia University, she began shooting for a variety of top modeling agencies including Elite, Ford and Wilhelmina Models. Once she finished her degree, she went to London to pursue her interests in photography and journalism. Within 6 months of arriving in London, she was appointed Editor at Large of the British magazine “Don’t Tell It”, and began shooting editorials for many magazines and clients in England, the US and Europe.
Over the years her work has sparked the interest of some of the world’s top creative directors, having been commissioned for British Vogue, GQ, Glamour, Marie Claire, Tatler, The Times, Grazia, Harper's Bazaar, In Style, L’Officiel as well as many other international publications and advertising campaigns. She is currently represented internationally with agents in New York, London and Milan.
Her career as a director began with her first short film, “City of Love” being featured at Cannes Film Festival in 2007. Since then she has directed, produced and edited numerous short films while maintaining an active career as a photographer. In 2009 she produced and launched the multimedia publication XXXX MAGAZINE, showcasing original multimedia productions of fashion and video art films.
In January 2010, her work was exhibited in a solo show in Paris at Visionairs Gallery, presenting large scale photographic images juxtaposed with her video art productions she directed for XXXX Magazine. Other recent exhibits include: The “Voyeur” Exhibit, Art Basel Miami, celebrating XXXX Magazine's 3rd issue, sponsored by Miami Art Museum Contemporaries, American Friends of the Louvre and Quintessentially, December 2010; Motion Deconstructed Exhibit with Quintessentiallly Art, New York, June 2010; "Soiree Au Louvre" Video Art Installation at the French Embassy, June 2010; Matignon, Paris Fashion Film Video Installation March 2011, New York Fashion Shorts at the Tribeca Grand, September 2009; London Fashion Shorts at Machine–A Gallery in February 2010; View Imaging exhibit, New York, December 2009; and The Distorted Beauty Show, April 2010.

Reclaiming agency over our bodies' representation (within the context of art), to be performed repeatedly in attempt to achieve communal breakdown of constraints, and the building of support and respect for the importance of such a performance within the institution.
Patty Farias, Lanie Chalmers. Performed with Katarina Cyrene Tarrant and Patrick During
Within the confines of the art institution the nude body exists in a contradictory state. It seeks at once to explore the marginalization of its history in Art, and yet, given the position of its location within the institution only furthers its isolation as well as its ability to be recontextualized as a site of ideological progression. When performed within the institution the body becomes an artifact; a reminder that history continues to operate as usual. This can be attributed to the fact that one can only interpret the body within the art institution to the degree that we can locate its significance within the medium: sculpture; photography; print; painting; design. This performance is interested in taking the performing body out of context in an attempt to gain insight into the effect that destabilizing the foundation of interpretation can have on the body within the institution. The paradoxical nature of the performance lies within the impotence of the act; for as much as it aims to complicate the discourse of the body, it somehow continues to reinforce its fate as art object within the context in which it's presented.

Galores of nude ladies indulging in erotism and sexual simulation.
The vid below is particularly memorable because of one super shy and cute co-ed from CCAC. It was her first time doing anything like this and she was nervous like hell. Frank Moore suffers from cerebral palsy but it's still a turn on for me (I'm a sick fuck) when the naked babe 'grinds' on him.

Ladies Night at the wildest bar in the world.
I shot this footage one winter night in 1998 in Moscow's infamous Hungry Duck bar. It was Ladies Night when only women are allowed in from 6pm to watch the male strippers and the beer is free.
As I stood on the bar to get good angles, the girls crowded around the bar tried to yank my tracksuit pants down; my Russian sound recordist had to stop them. Then when I jumped down into the bar area, I hit my knee on a bar tap and boy was that painful.
At 10pm the guys are let in to feast on the drunken female clientele. Some were high on 'E' too.
This was shot for London's 'Eurotrash' show when the Duck was in its heyday. The owner, flamboyant Canadian Doug Steele, was forced out and it now continues in a watered-down form I believe.
