CAMP
The Lie That Tells the Truth

By Philip Core

Camp style – in behaviour, clothing, artistic output or emotions – has never been properly explored or defined. Jean Cocteau, as camp a figure as Paris has ever produced, said in Vanity Fair in 1922, ‘I am a lie that tells the truth.’ This paradox is the basis of Philip Core’s personal definitions of camp, seen from the inside. His savagely witty depictions of more than two centuries of camp find it embodied in personalities and places, objects and artefacts.
