First time curators, Rafael Soldi, Paolo Morales and Elle Perez, have brought together a diverse group of fourteen young photographers for the Select Gender show at the Farmani Gallery in Dumbo Brooklyn. The show has everything from J. Aiden Simon’s self-portraits as a trans man, to Sarah Sudhoff’s photographs of University of Texas sorority, Delta Gamma, during rush week.
Probably the most immediate and confronting image is by Yale MFA candidate, Katie Koti, and shows a nude person shot against a stark Winter background. This image, featured prominently in the gallery, leads you to question the surrounding portraits: are the subjects gay, straight, trans, and, more importantly, does it even matter? The show leaves no gender group unrepresented as it turns upside down society’s need to define gender boundaries. Runs through till May 22 at the Farmani Gallery in Brooklyn, New York.
