My ever-mounting love affair with film has been significantly amplified thanks in large part to the community birthed by the Lomography movement. It's just pure love. A plethora of different entities, all with equally diverse back stories, mingling and feeding off of the magnificence of Lomo-love. Jizz-tastic!
On the 7th, the good folks at the Lomography Gallery Store - Greenwhich were debuting a series entitled "Transmography: Thirteen Fairytale Portraits of Queers Beyond the Gender Binary". The portraits were the work of Najva Sol and the embellishments were of Molly Crabapple's hand.
Clearly, I was more than obligated to feast on such majesty. The downside (and essentially, the bane of my mere existence) was the fact that I had a schedule to keep. I needed to be uptown by 7:30pm and at least en route to Jersey by 8:30-ish. Considering that I wasn't even on my 'own' time until after 6:15pm, mama had to make moves. I made it to the Lomo store moments after 7 and had to pull a 'leave the money on the nightstand' move. I ran in, took like 5 shots and ran out to hop my ass right back on the train.
A few words about the exhibit... I loved each and every one of the pieces! The entities featured held such presence and were strikingly beautiful in their own rights. The graphics did just enough to accentuate the depictions without overpowering the regal truth at the heart of each subject. In summation it was a win and although, I was unable to really get into the crowd and mingle and whatnot, the vibe in the room was so peace.
....Oh and to the folks at Lomo, serving white wine in plastic cups, I can so get into it!
