The Photography of Lux Interior

It’s of no surprise that Lux Interior of The Cramps directed his artistic abilities towards other areas besides music, mostly in the form of photography. Poison Ivy and Lux met in “art school” in the early 1970s and fell into a chaotic and beautiful romance that lasted up until Lux’s death in 2009. His photography almost always included Ivy – his eternal muse – as the subject of his work, with his provocative and fetishistic photographs of her used as Cramps album covers throughout the years.
Perhaps even most interestingly was his interest in 3-D cameras and this insert from Asymptote Magazine from 1992 featuring 'Crosseyed Photos by Lux Interior'...
