"Fantasy in Reality" will celebrate the art of photography and the vibrant culture that surrounds the making of role-play photographs. Through the lenses of talented photographers, this exhibiiton captures the creativity and passion that go into the act of character creation and the crafting and portrayal of characters taken from various genres, such as fan favorite comics, movies, TV shows, theater, drag shows, video games, music and literature.
This exhibition will explore not just images of the creations of these talented artists, but also offers a peek "behind the mask," so to speak. Whether it's dress-up in mid-creation of their costume or displaying their finished work at gatherings and meet-ups, showcasing in their element. Each photograph will display the incredible attention to detail and craftsmanship that photographers bring to their costumes and performances. Beyond the visual spectacle, it is this curator's hope that the featured photographs will effectively relay this experience.
We hope that "Fantasy in Reality" will encourage viewers to embrace and discover a new appreciation for the creativity that goes into the act of dress-up, masquerade and role-play photography. This upcoming exhibition is sure to delight and inspire.
