Doug Abraham, NYC based collage artist @Bessnyc4, is a master of creating subversive images, mashing together fashion, pornography and art in an entirely masterful way.

It is not difficult to see why he has been coined the “Instagram Iconoclast”.
For his contribution to Document, Abraham draws inspiration from the beautiful cheapness of 80’s porn, with special attention to the grainy quality VHS brings. The curated world of smut—fake tans, harsh lights, and carefully considered locations and costuming—provided an unlikely backdrop for the world of fine high-end jewelry.
