The Bath House

Opening: September 6, 6-8PM
Exhibition: September 7-8, 12-6PM

Since Ancient Rome and Greece, and throughout history, men have met privately to engage sexually in bath establishments. Today, bathhouses exist discreetly throughout the world where men can commingle anonymously. For the first time, this exhibit documents an excursion into American 21st century bathhouses in soft-focused, dream-like imagery. The evocative body of photographs emerged from images the artist Ralf took with a concealed digital camera. Every precaution has been taken to preserve anonymity, as attested to by a facial recognition expert. These rich, black-and-white prints capture moments of fear, loneliness, awkwardness, tenderness, and erotic anticipation.
