Lickshot is Ben Watts's highly personalized scrapbook and travel diary. A triumph of lo-fi style, its pages are a gritty pastiche of wonky Polaroids and other photographs, and hand-scrawled graffiti held together by slashes of colored tape. Its contents reflect the vast variety of Watts's photographic subjects—from high school ice skaters, Brooklyn biker gangs, and lounging sunbathers to world-famous actors, supermodels, and today's hottest musicians.
The book features an interview with Watts and Ingrid Sischy of Vanity Fair.
