As some of you will know, I’ve been artist-in-residence at Tom of Finland Foundation in Echo Park, LA, for the last six weeks. As a way of giving something back to the Foundation that’s given me lots of inspiration, support, and encouragement in my work during my time here, I’ve produced a limited edition portfolio of 6 prints of Brent Corrigan to benefit the Foundation.
The portfolio of C-type prints is priced at £1,250/$2,100 for the set of 6 prints and is an edition of 50 with 25% of the profits going to the Foundation. The prints are signed, dated, and numbered on the reverse.
If you’re in or around LA at the moment I’ll be showing a selection of work, including the Brent photographs, at TOM’s Bar on the 15th.
Please click the images above to see the portfolio online. There are also two larger print versions of the portfolio which can be purchased as individual prints: a 12 x 18 inch C-type print in an edition of 6 and 40 x 60 inch archival inkjet print in an edition of 3. Please contact me directly for availability of these editions.
“This series was taken of Brent at the beginning of May in the TOM House garden using my trusty old Yashica T-5 35mm camera, which is the camera I’ve been using since way back in 2004. This shoot is the first proper shoot I’ve done with a model since 2011 and Brent was a whole lot of fun to work with.” OUT.COM
…the project started when “a mutual friend introduced me to Brent and invited him to TOM House and gave him a tour, Brent was really excited and passionate about Tom of Finland and his work.” Stuart shared that he’s had a crush on Brent for years, “ever since I saw him in his first porn movies back in the gay, especially Every Poolboy’s Dream.” It seems like Stuart’s own dream came true. In preparation for the shoot, the artist and the model hanged out for a day, “drank some beers, talked about life, love, sex, art and took photos, which is the way I like to shoot, it’s all about the interaction between myself and the person I’m shooting.” Abi, GAYLETTER.com
