Jon Feinstein presents Boys, a solo exhibition of new work by Aneta Bartos. Boys is an exhibition of twelve photographs that create a newly interpreted female gaze through their depiction of male vulnerability. In these images, Bartos records private sexual moments of her subjects: men who have agreed to let her photograph them masturbating in the small, dimly lit rooms of the Carlton Arms Hotel in New York City. The images are gritty and sexually charged, challenging the male eye of art history while paying homage to the pictorial movement of artists such as Julia Margaret Cameron and Edward Steichen.
