Benjamin Fredrickson, a contributing artist to Capricious Issue No. 14—Masculine, presents a series of never before seen Polaroids and paper negatives at the LGBT Community Center in New York City.
“The exhibition, titled Salon, will feature previously unseen Polaroid photographs and new images made with paper negatives. Fredrickson’s early work documents his sexual life and his community of gay men. His new work, while less explicit, unexpectedly offers deep intimacy and beauty among his subjects. Fredrickson relies on his intuition while working with his subjects and achieves an ephemeral quality that is unique to this new work. ” – Bureau of General Services—Queer Division
Salon will be on view through March 20, 2016.
A conversation between Benjamin Fredrickson and Hunter O’Hanian, Director of the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, will also be held at the Bureau on Thursday, February 18, at 7 PM.
