Revealing Rita. Being invited into the mind of Damon Baker is like having an all-access pass to something really amazing. With each new work I am reminded of his limitless talent and never-ending ability to inspire & delight. An artist utterly original and achingly authentic, when he points his high-powered perception at a chosen subject we all become the benefactors to a new truth in beauty. Taking on one of today’s most captivating individuals, Baker bypasses the pop-culture bullshit and goes straight for the creative jugular in, ‘Küss mich, Baby’ for the July/August 2013 issue of Interview Germany. A masterful mix of hard and soft, these smoldering images reach beyond the rebellion revealing a deeper side of the superstar. Creative and compelling, while I am attracted to the aura of Ora, I can’t pretend it isn’t the talent of Damon Baker that really draws me in.
