    I'm honored to be part of the exhibition Photography After Stonewall which examines the influence of the Stonewall Riots on creative photography.
    The exhibition will be held at Soho Photo Gallery, 15 White Street, NYC, from June 5-29, 2019.
    Opening - June 4 2019, 6-8 pm

    I will be showing 20 ambrotype portraits of gay and lesbian interracial couples.

    The gallery-wide exhibition demonstrates how the uprising made possible a type of imagery that earlier generations had to suppress.

    Photography After Stonewall highlights the work of twenty-three living artists, all of whom have developed a creative approach to LGBTQ issues. The themes include Body/Gender/Sexuality, Home, Family, Gays in the Military, AIDS, Fetish, Pulp, and Fantasy. Fifty years ago, much of this would have been unthinkable. Among its many accomplishments, the Stonewall Riots opened up a new area for artistic expression.

    The participating photographers are Ronaldo Aguiar, Berena Alvarez, James Bidgood, Vincent Cianni, Joyce Culver, John Paul Evans, Sunil Gupta, David Hilliard, Robert Kalman, Rivka S. Katvan, David Lebe, Patrick McNabb, Slava Mogutin, Barbara Nitke, Lissa Rivera, Jeff Sheng, Pacifico Silano, Sage Sohier, Sam Stoich, Bill Travis, Arthur Tress, Annie Tritt, and Sophia Wallace.

    The exhibition, curated by gallery photographers Bill Travis and Larry Davis, will be preserved in a book which includes scholarly essays, artist statements, and interviews. .

    Congratulations.

    Also in NYC right now ... Brooklyn to be more precise ... is a curated art show looking at Stonewall's legacy through the work of LGBT artists born after the 1969 Stonewall uprising.

    It's at the Brooklyn Museum ... an example from the show is in the June 2019 Smithsonian magazine.
