October 7 – October 9, 2014
Opening: Tuesday, October 7 6pm to 9pm
G Lounge is pleased to present MALEXPOSURE, a solo exhibition of work by Roberto Araujo.
Please join us on Tuesday, October 7, from 6-9pm, for the exhibition opening and to meet the artist.
In his first public exhibition, Araujo presents a series of photographs that let us view the male figure through his eyes. The exhibit features 20 personally selected images of the artist’s work. Beautiful Magazine has called his work “Sexy, playful and bright” and praises Araujo’s ability to portray his models as they truly are.
“When I take a picture, I try to capture not only the image, the light and the movement, but also what goes on behind the eyes of my models. There’s more to a picture than just the composition. What the models bring to the process is the essence of the image; I cannot create it without them. It exposes them and a little bit of who they are.”
“It all starts with images in my head. I am highly influenced by film and theatre. I like telling stories and that’s what I try to bring into my photography.”
“My creative process starts with the model. My photography has a style, but I want it to be about the model. I want to showcase him in the best light.”
Roberto Araujo is a Mexican photographer based in New York City. He regularly contributes with publications in New York City and Paris. For more on the artist’s work visit:
