Quil Lemons
Glitterboy

May 1–31, 2018
500px
20 Duncan St, Ste 100

Philadelphia-based photographer Lemons creates portraits that challenge mainstream representations of black men, photographing his young subjects with thick swaths of colourful glitter on their faces. Touching on themes of racial and gender stereotypes, Lemons’ work confronts limiting definitions of identity. Exhibited for the first time in Canada, photos from the Glitterboy series can be seen in street-level window installations.
