Photographers Richard Renaldi and Jess T. Dugan both train their cameras on people on the margins.
Renaldi spent seven years documenting New York City’s nightclub scene in black and white, using a large-format with a large format camera to document the trajectory of long nights of partying, their ecstasy and their loneliness. The project culminated in his book Manhattan Sunday Morning.
Jess T. Dugan’s latest project Every Breath We Drew, is a collection of portraits exploring the queer experience and the fluidity of gender identity. In the still ongoing project, started in 2011, she looks at how people reconcile their private identities with their need to connect with others.
Photos from both projects go on view at the Transformer Station Fri 4/27, with a free, public reception from 7-9pm. The show runs through Sun 6/17.
