Compelling, sexualized and controversial are three words I’m going to use to describe the photographic work of George H. Lewis, whose website was sent to me because it contains a couple shots of firebrand, activist and friend Madison Young. It’s my understanding that some of these photos will be on exhibit sometime soon in New York and San Francisco; I’ll keep you posted if you’re interested. Given the cultural contrasts here, we should also add ‘provocative’ to the descriptor list for Lewis’ work, as I think some of these images could get someone thrown in prison should an attempt to exhibit these be made in a different part of the world.
