Adrien Leavitt – Queer Feelings. Opening Thursday, June 8, 2017 6-9pm

| May 24, 2017 | 0 Comments

Adrien Leavitt’s “Queer Feelings” is a photographic exploration of queerness and our intimate, complex relationship with our bodies, both physically and emotionally. This body of work presents vulnerability by blurring the space between private and public realities and expresses a new reality where our desire, mutability, and openness are able to gaze back at us. This ongoing project is already over 3 years in the making.

Photographs are for sale – 24 x 16 inches, $150, unframed. Framed $450. Other sizes available upon request. Small prints will be for sale at the opening.

Books will be for sale at the opening and for the duration at Vermillion. Full color, 138 pages, printed at Girlie Press. $40+ tax each. They are also available at http://queerfeelings.bigcartel.com/
