We've talked a lot about female masculinity on Velvetpark, lets now turn our gaze on male femininity. Opening tonight at the Leslie/Lohman Gallery in New York City are the portraits of photographer Sophia Wallace. I've known Sophia for many years, she shot for Vp in our magazine days and I always admired her ability to capture crisp, beautiful portraits, no matter if the sitter were a famous performer or the boi next door.
Wallace's solo show, "The New Masculine" curated by Cora Lambert, is a series of stark, iconic large scale photographs. The images on view tonight display a new level of skill and maturity from this artist that reveals the beauty in vulnerability.
Opening reception: Tuesday, October 12, 6 PM
On view: Tuesday, October 6 - December 8
