Frank Ocean is back with a book of photographs. Mutations is a 48-page collection shot by Ocean himself, available at his fashion boutique Homer both online and in-store for $75. The photos were taken between October 19 and December 22, 2022 and are printed on “tissue-weight paper,” according to a press release.
Mutations is Frank Ocean’s first public offering since his performance at weekend 1 of Coachella. Initially signed on as the headliner for both weeks, Ocean dropped out of the second date after harsh criticism of his first set. In a press statement, Ocean said that a leg injury suffered before the first weekend’s show had forced him to bow out of returning to the desert. Part of the resulting media frenzy around the debacle included a Billboard report alleging that the festival had spent millions of dollars on a hockey rink that went unused.
Still, the magazine does look quite nice! See some previews of it below. It’s part of a new Homer collection, which we’ll learn more about soon.
