PLACES OF POWER by Benjy Russell

From my trip across country with the most beautiful of muses Kristen Leahy of WIFE

in case you missed it….I shot these in New Mexico last week driving to LA from Tennessee. The top photo was shot at The Very Large Array, a series of 5-6 story tall radio satellites in the desert that read radio signals from distant galaxies. There are around 20 of them spread out over miles and they pick up radio signals from distant galaxies and interperet them as a singular entity.

The second photo was shot at White Sands, New Mexico…which isn’t your normal sand. It’s made up of pulverized gypsum rock. It’s so soft (like talcum powder) and it’s so cool under your feet. They were both such powerful places, and I felt like they served very similar purposes.

This iris that Sterling bought me last year is one of my favorites. It looks like it should be growing under the ocean. He also got me a black iris called “Superstition” that is so sexy…..

Private Birthday Party is a private collection of found photographic slides that depict Kansas City’s early drag ball culture throughout the 1950s and 1960s. With over 200 images, this collection is a rare, important look into the rich history of mid-century drag ball culture in middle America.

Thanks Dusti Cunningham!
