"Little Miss is a seven year-old manikin girl.  From 2015 through 2018, I photographed her at home and around Los Angeles. I used and abused Little Miss with my camera, the way men use and abuse women and little girls."

"I’m not known for subtle photographs and Little Miss is not shy or demure.   She goes cheerily through humiliation and violence and, in spite of her dire predicaments, she maintains a Mona Lisa smile.  She is not alone in this brutal world and I wish she could absorb the blows for all the other girls.  With these photographs and words, I want Little Miss to voice the anger of the times.  I want her to shout and scream and kick and bite. I want her good nature to instill horror.
"

-- Scot Sothern 2019

Writer/photographer Scot Sothern spent 25 years hustling photography, drifting from job to job. In 2010 his first solo exhibit, Lowlife  – photos and stories of life with street prostitutes – was held at drkrm gallery in Los Angeles. His first book of the same title was published in the U.K. by Stanley/Barker in 2011. The British Journal of Photography called Lowlife “the years’ most controversial photo book.” 

In 2013 he took a two-year gig as a columnist for VICE Magazine, writing and photo-illustrating the biweekly columns Nocturnal Submissions and Sothern Exposure. That same year Curb Service, a Memoir was published by Soft Skull Press. Another book of stories and photographs, Streetwalkers, was published by powerHouse Books in February 2016. Scot’s work has since been exhibited in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, London, and Paris.
