Eric Hairabedian, Manushag, 2006
As you may have noticed there’s an old dude mixing some hot tunes in our masthead right now. Given the recent discussion here on the value of Ryan McGinley’s invincible youth photographs, I have to say we’re happy to be showcasing a piece that focuses on someone over the age of 30 who choses to wear clothing. We like to mix things up a bit of course, and featuring an artist that mixes the funny and slightly creepy certainly achieves this, but we may also simply prefer pictures of fathers* in their evening wear to virtually all other genres of photography. I’ll let you be the judge on that one. View Hairabedian’s work this Friday in Not Yet Utopia, a group show at Pocket Utopia. Click on the masthead to read a full bio on our Featured Artist page.
