photo of the day 10/24/2011. photo Mark I Chester This is a photo of photographer Michael Rosen from 11/1983. I am posting this because Michael has a new show of radical sex portraits that will open at the Center for Sex and Culture on Friday Nov. 4th from 6-9pm.

Check out this link which has all the necessary info. For a NSFW sample of the work in ...the show go to While this show focuses on women, unlike most photographers of the sexual underground, Rosen usually photographs all genders, all sexual orientations and all sexual styles. He wants to leave the world a better place than he found it, a very jewish point of view, even if Michael doesn't relate to it that way.

This photo of Michael was taken in my hallway of my previous apartment. I had this long hallway that I painted a midnight blue. It was magical. Like passing through a dark passageway until you emerged into the light of my apartment. Like a portal into a world beyond the looking glass. Plus some of our first 2 person shows and open studios included hanging work in this hallway. What better way to photograph Michael than emerging from darkness into the light. ;)
