Stefan Pinto plays in the shadows. The after-hours, backstage, secret spaces, and the no-cameras-allowed zones that are the most telling and revealing are his specialty. Pinto can shoot in full sunlight and make us feel as if we are witnessing a private moment.
Homoerotic fetish artist Tom of Finland died in 1991, but his spirit was alive and well at Lethal Amounts on Friday, Feb. 24. The artist’s brand and the Westlake art gallery teamed up to launch a collection of T-shirts, sweatshirts and prints plus a limited-edition zine. At the one-night-only celebration of the collaboration, hot, leather-clad guys and scantily clad ladies mingled while DJ Matthew Pernicano spun tunes. Even a sexy sailor showed up.
