“Holy Grails” is an art exhibit that explores the intersection of documentary photography, portraiture, video installation, and the hype culture surrounding sneaker collection. As an artist, I am fascinated by the idea of sneakers as an asset class and the economics of the sneaker market, which serves as an example of rising inflation over multiple markets.
Through this exhibit, I aim to showcase the personalities and stories of sneaker collectors, documenting their passion for rare and coveted sneakers. Each portrait captures the essence of the subject’s relationship with sneakers, while the accompanying video installation provides a deeper look into their personal collections and insights into the sneaker culture.
