Hommies is a group photography show that features photographers who rely on their circle of friends for their inspiration. A celebration of the bond between photographer and subject makes for an intimate image that is honest and unpretentious.
Featuring works by Per Billgren, Angela Boatwright, Cheryl Dunn, Leigh Le Dare, Dennis McGrath, Jon McGrath, Ari Marcopoulos, Carissa Pelleteri, Ray Potes, Mickey Reyes, Vanessa Salle, Ivory Serra, Julien Stranger, Gary Van De Griek, and Tobin Yelland
Since the age of fifteen, Tobin Yelland has been steadily documenting the shadowy existence of youth and its vestiges in day-to-day life. First published by Thrasher Magazine in 1985. Tobin’s work has expanded beyond the world of San Francisco skaters to become a collection of images giving voice to an entire generation spanning locations and social identities.
“Hommies,” curated by Tobin Yelland, runs December 15, 2007 through January 12, 2008 at Fuse Gallery, 93 2nd Ave (between 5th & 6th Sts, 2nd Ave stop on the F), NYC, NY.
