Temple of Art at La Luz de Jesus Gallery

Since 2012, Allan Amato has been taking photographs of artists, and asking to reinterpret the portraits in their medium of choice. This collaboration is not only unique because it deals with the way in which the photographer sees his subjects, but how the artists themselves interpret and deal with the portrait of themselves. The artists did not compose the photograph, they are just working from it. It’s a great project and one of those exhibitions that must be seen in person. This exhibition marks the final footage to complete a documentary on the project, and Baby Tattoo will release a book mid-exhibition. As quoted in the press release “Rarely are we given an opportunity to confront our perceptions of reality and self; this exhibition will illuminate the universal tension between the pursuit of our vision and the demands of a critical and implacable world.”
