3.5 x 4.25" Archival Print
Leo ELLER, Ventura – 2020


This signed and numbered edition of 50 archival pigment prints considers the work and legacy of early gay photographers—referencing pocket prints that were popularized in gay communities during a time when gay image-making was still illegalSmall enough to fit in a pocket, these images were collected and appreciated privately, a secret carried and shared between owner and creator. As queer photography has established its validity and position in photography today, this edition honors the complications and repercussions early gay photographers risked in their efforts to express their identities and desires.
