Frank Ocean publishes photography book “Mutations”
Frank Ocean has published his photography in a new 48-page book entitled Mutations.
Published by the musician’s luxury company, Homer, the booklet, offset printed on tissue-weight paper, is a retrospective of artwork from October 19 to December 22, 2022.
Printed in the U.S.A., it sells for $75.
Homer is Frank Ocean’s New York Luxury store in Chinatown filled with bright wares. Opened on Monday, August 9, 2021, the musician—whose interests include “hard goods”—revealed at the time that he’d been working on the 25-piece debut Homer collection for three and a half years.
The company’s name comes, in part, from the Greek poet: “Homer is considered the father of history and history is meant to endure–the same as diamonds and gold–and I know Homer used papyrus, but I’ve always liked the idea of carving history into stone,” Ocean explained.
Frank Ocean made headlines in April when he headlined the first Sunday night of Coachella 2023. The set was not streamed, and he played songs including “Novacane,” “Bad Religion,” and more before abruptly leaving the stage due to the festival’s curfew. Ocean did not return for Coachella’s second weekend, citing an apparent leg injury as the reason for his absence.
