French Artist Frédéric Nauczyciel’s Photography and Films Celebrate Contemporary Voguing In Paris And Baltimore
In 2011, photographer and filmmaker Frédéric Nauczyciel spent five months in Baltimore, embedding himself in the underground culture of contemporary voguing in the city’s black community. Moving between Paris and Baltimore, he captures the evolution of the queer performance genre documented so beautifully in the 1990 film Paris Is Burning. His images reveal that voguing is very much alive and well. Listen to Fresh Talk: Frédéric Nauczyciel to hear more about his work. Click HERE to watch an excerpt from the House of HMU film series.
This week, as we mourn the tragic mass shooting inside a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, we stand in solidarity with lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender communities around the world. Fresh Art International will always celebrate every individual’s right to express their true gender identity.
