Bear Hug (Dark) T-Shirt  by Matthew Parsons

An Englishman living in Canada. Mathew Parsons is a dedicated fine art photography graduate who is passionate about imagery as a form of expression and communication. He spotlights and puts emphasis on self-challenge, within the realms of photography and video, to convey impressions, emotions and statements conclusively. He hopes that his work entertains and motivates others to think more. I always encourage and promote that.

“Gay in America” Due Out Sept 27, 2011

by Accidental Bear


“In this first-ever photographic survey of gay men in America, stereotypes are laid to rest and an intimate, honest picture of contemporary gay life is revealed through stunning personal portraits and narratives.

Photographer Scott Pasfield traveled 52,000 miles across all fifty states over a two-year span gathering stories and documenting the lives of 150 gay men from all walks of life. At turns joyful and somber, reflective and celebratory, each narrative and image is an enlightening look into the variety of gay life in the United States.

Pasfield’s striking and perceptive portraits reflect the same beautiful diversity found in any sampling of our population. Each of these men is unique and whole, complex and fallible, just as we all are. They come in every size and shape, every religion, color, profession, and background. There are farmers, writers, doctors, lawyers, artists, teachers, students; there are fathers and husbands, activists, and business men. Some are successful, some are struggling, some are political, some are wealthy, some are wounded, and some are deeply content.

Their commonality draws from a single shared trait: their homosexuality. These are men who are attracted to men, and have chosen not to disguise that truth. For many, there have been harsh consequences to this decision, but also deep rewards. The message that prevails is one of great hope that true equality is close within our reach, if only we would grasp it.”

All Eyes on John Arsenault Photography

by Accidental Bear

True art, provokes emotion and thought. John Arsenault’s photography accomplishes just that. I am caught in a moment of curiosity, envy and touching base with sexual cravings.

BIO:

Steven Beckly is a photo-based artist living and working in Toronto, Canada. His artistic practice explores the complexities of identity, relationships, intimacy, and sexuality in contemporary experience. Blending diaristic, documentary, and cinematographic approaches, his work predominantly employs portraiture infused with biographical elements and idealized fiction. Performance plays an important role in his process, and constructed environments provide the context for his images.

He is interested in reconstructing personal and intimate realities and replaying emotional conditions to transform ordinary moments into universal sentiments. Seemingly fictionalized characters are placed in fragmented and open-ended narratives, creating space for imagined structure, context, and meaning. By exploring the connections between the individual, the collective, and their environments, he continually aspires to portray emotional intricacies that comprise and reveal layers of human experience.

His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including exhibitions at Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography (Toronto, ON), Newspace Center for Photography (Portland, OR), Photo Center NW (Seattle, WA), and the University of the Arts (Philadelphia, PA). His images have been featured in major international publications, including Photo Life (Canada), The Photo Review (USA), and Photo World (China). Recently, he was awarded the Director’s Choice Award at the 2010 CENTER Awards (Santa Fe, NM).
