honor and memory of George Wong, an asian leatherman from LA who passed
away recently. George who was a leather of the leather community and
an activist for men of color being represented in the leather community.
George was fascinated by the contradictions in the man in the suit whose
suit is removed to reveal a man in leather and crotch high boots. So
I am taking two photographs from this series and have put them together to
represent the duality that he found so interesting.
These and other photographs were taken as part of the buildup to Lucky
Choi's KGAM - Kinky Gay Asian Male Conference in San Francisco in 2001. I
was just starting to do digital work and the camera was only a 1.5 MP
