People working in the building where the "Legendary Children" photo exhibit of some of Atlanta's raucous drag queens is on display are feeling uncomfortable with the images and requested at least two photographs be covered up and another relocated.
The exhibit, located in Gallery 1526 at 1526 DeKalb Ave. NE, drew the ire this week of employees located in the same space as the art gallery. The photos are hanging in the hallways of the building and can be seen by others working in the building as they go to and from work.
The first exhibit in what's planned to be many more at DooGallery is tonight and features the photography of Aubrey Bell and Edward deGruy in an exhibit named "Beauty is Everywhere."
The exhibit begins at 8 p.m. and is free to the public. There will be free drinks and live entertainment. The gallery is located at 205 Holtzclaw St., Unit J, Atlanta, GA 30316.
As Atlanta artist/photographer Philip Bonneau prepared to unveil his “Heroes +Villains #2” exhibit last spring, he didn’t realize his life was about to change.
Shortly after the opening, he got profiled in the gay national media outlet “The Advocate” – twice. Actor George Takei trumpeted one of his pieces online. (“It was so interesting to see my work go viral,” he says).
Bonneau also launched a Kickstarter campaign that enabled him to do a wildly popular “Heroes +Villains #3” at the end of the year, combining drag with his usual vision of superheroes. And there’s more — through Kickstarter he was able to meet a funder and participate in “Dream Weaver,” a New York exhibit this spring honoring actress Sigourney Weaver, where the artist based a piece on Weaver’s character in “Aliens.” He was also asked to be a guest at next year’s Outlantacon.
Bonneau calls the last year and a half “overwhelming.”
Counting Rufus Wainwright, Jake Shears and Daniel Radcliffe among friends makes Tim Hailand an icon in his own right, but it's the household names that take focus in his "One Day in the Life Of" series.
Hailand, who's openly gay, brings the latest of his photo books "One Day in the Life of Jake Shears" to Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse Friday, April 8, at 2 p.m.
Better yet, Shears himself will be on hand to sign and discuss the book as well. The Scissor Sisters perform later that evening at the Tabernacle.
"One Day in the Life Of Jake Shears" is the third in Hailand's series, following the publication of similar sets with Radcliffe and Wainwright. Next on the list is gay rugby player Gareth Thomas.
In an email interview with the GA Voice, Hailand discussed what goes on behind the lens and why, despite covering Wainwright, Shears and Thomas, his books aren't "One GAY in the Life."
