PHD Gallery celebrates Gay Pride by turning the spotlight on LGBTQ photographers who specialize in the male form.
Gallery owner Philip Hitchcock selects photographers whose work explores the diverse and changing meaning of "maleness," masculinity, gender, and gender identity. On view, are works by celebrated transmale photographer Loren Cameron (San Francisco), Alberta College of Art and Design graduate Joshua McVeity (Calgary), documentary photographer/ journalist Trix Rosen (New York), and widely published fashion and commercial photographer David Vance (Miami). The work is on view June 26 - August 7, 2010, with an opening reception Saturday, June 26, 7 - 10 PM.
Each artist photographs the male nude but from a decidedly personal perspective. The works of these four photographers alternately reinforce, blur, or shatter conventional boundaries about masculinity and the defining characteristics of male identity in contemporary culture.
