Sten Exhibit at The House of Love and Dissent
It’s late and I need to head to bed because I have an early wake up call tomorrow, but I wanted to get these photos out to everyone first. As I mentioned in my last post, the Sten exhibit at Love and Dissent opened tonight. I headed over with some friends around 10 pm and there was a huge crowd all there to see Sten’s work. I’d never noticed this gallery space before but it’s quite large for Roman standards, with Sten’s work filling upstairs and downstairs. I’ve mixed in some close-ups and long shots so that you can get a sense of what his work is about. The gallery’s website is only in Italian, so to let you know a bit, Sten takes some of his inspiration from the fabulous blog Sexy People, which shows amazing old school portraits. The exhibit also features beautiful work from the photographer Andrea Ruggeri, who has formed a relationship with Sten and therefore done reportage of him at work. If you can’t afford one of the pieces, there are t-shirts with Sten’s work also available for sale at the gallery. His pieces will remain on show for most of April until Lex, who works alongside Sten and Lucamaleonate at the Offthestreet studio, opens his exhibit at Love and Dissent on April 23.
