Booth 12

22 - 24.08.2014

Dean's Bed is Love, intimacy, dreams, longing, conceit, queer, identity, authenticity and beauty. 

It is made with people, not of subjects - Chosen family, old friends, new friends, artists. Working, playing, with the participants to reveal, but not capture, ultimate expressions of self… a naked… bare self that holds agency. Shifting photographer to participant, creating relationships and abandoning distance. Making Love.  For more information click here
