Through the lens of his camera, Ocean skilfully captures the beauty and intricacies of this transformative season. Printed in the United States on delicate tissue-weight paper, each page of this visual treasure trove offers a window into Ocean's world.
Frank Ocean has always been an artist who defies categorisation, and his prowess extends beyond music. Known for his elusive persona, Ocean seamlessly weaves his talent into the fabric of photography. The images featured in Mutations are not just snapshots; they are meticulously curated pieces of art. From his friends donning Homer's exquisite jewellery to candid moments of introspection, Ocean's photographs reveal a glimpse of the world through his eyes.
While fans eagerly await new music from Frank Ocean – who has not released a new full-length album since 2016’s Blonde; and whose most recent music came in the form of the singles Cayendo and Dear April, which came out in March 2020 – Mutations offers an alternative artistic expression that both surprises and delights. Ocean's dedication to his craft is evident in every frame, as he captures moments frozen in time. With each turn of the page, readers are drawn deeper into the intricacies of his winter retrospective, forming an intimate connection with Ocean's creative journey. Mutations is available for purchase online and in-store at Homer's New York flagship for seventy-four dollars.
