New work by Ross Gordon
December 13th, 2013 – February 7th, 2014
Please join us this Friday, December 13th 5-9pm as we welcome one of Louisville's premier photographers, Ross Gordon, and celebrate his latest series of large-scale photographs, "Transformistas."
This new body of work that grew out of a month-long trip Gordon spent in Cuba this past year. Transformistas are the local drag queens and transsexuals who often have found themselves arrested and prosecuted if caught by police. Changes in cultural attitudes move at a snail's pace despite anti-discrimination laws that have passed. The strength, desires, and energy of his subjects shine as Gordon captures their lives as they continue being who they are despite the continued harassment and persecution they face daily.
