New York, NY – LEWD is the visual story of friends and strangers… ships in the night, who have illuminated and helped photographer Adrian Buckmaster understand who he is, where he is, and why.
These images are of ordinary people, each wearing their own scramble suit, obscuring their true identity. Or is it the reverse?. Is it the veneer of another persona that is sometimes confused with the echo of the forgotten child.
Adrian's portraiture is rage in response to the sanitization of sexual identity.
About the Artist – Born in London Adrian Buckmaster studied design and photography at Twickenham Tech.
As an architectural photographer he photographed the Palace of Westminster, Houses of Parliament and documented early Arabic architecture in Spain and Saudi Arabia. He was the first photographer to be inducted into the Art Workers Guild, founded by William Morris in1880.
In 1981 he came to America and began making portraits. Laced with fashion his images are a chimera of the time in which he lives.
Represented by Manhattan Partners Media, he works by private commission.
