    PETER
    HUJAR

    Peter Hujar is known for being an integral part of the downtown New York community through the 70’s and 80’s. As a photographer he was brave, detailed and often uncompromising. These attributes made him admired by the artists, musicians, writers and performers around him in the clandestine pockets of NYC. Hujar was not widely recognized until after his death to AIDS in 1987. He left behind a complex and profound body of work; focusing on black and white portraits with piercing connections to his subjects, photography of animals and landscapes. At the time, his work was often overlooked due to his “difficult” nature and unwillingness to pander to the marketplace and institution of the art world. In his lifetime, Hujar did achieve a publication of a book in 1976 called Portraits in Life and Death. The photo book was an unusual sequence of portraits of Hujar's friends along side pictures of corpses in the catacombs underneath an I...

    CHARLES
    FRÉGER

    French photographer Charles Fréger has always been fascinated by European tribal traditions. This inspired Fréger to travel around to 21 European countries to capture the costumes and the traditions.

Comparing costumes, each country has its own signifiers that pertain to their local landscape and cultures. Incorporation of animal pelts, branches, horns and bells are a common theme as the countries often create costumes around animal based folklore.
    Fréger gives some insight to why so many celebrations are based around humans masquerading as an animal.“ It is not about being possessed by a spirit but it is about jumping voluntarily in the skin of an animal. You decide to become something else. You chose to become and animal, which is more exciting than being possessed by a demon”
    After his long tour o...

    DANA
    LIXENBERG

    Photographer Dana Lixenberg has created a web documentary telling the stories of the Imperial Courts residents over a 22 year period. The project consists of three parts; Portraits, Stories and contributions by the Imperial Courts residents. With a collection of video, audio and photography the project depicts the history, the residents, and the day to day life of what it is like to live in one of America’s most known housing projects.
    Imperial Courts is a housing project that was built in 1944 in Watts, Los Angeles on the corner of 116th Street and Imperial Highway. This housing project attracted a predominate African- American population from the southern states of America. Imperial Courts and other surrounding projects soon became the ghetto.
    With American history drenched in radical discrimination and social isolation, riots began in Watts in 1992 following the acquittal of four white LAPD officers accused of the trag...
