Accompanying his previous work and subsequent zine Girls, photographer Jesse
Pollock is releasing the counterpart to this series with Guys. The combined set of
photographs center around portraits of both men and women rarely posed and often
in various states of candor. In conjunction with the zine release, the show will center
around photographs selected from that series with emphasis on portraiture. In addition,
the previously out of print Girls zine has been re-issued and will be for sale at the
opening so that the complete set can be made available.
